2019 Infiniti QX80 Specs, Release Dates, Prices

As the flagship of INFINITI bold, wide-ranging SUV lineup – which includes the highly advanced QX50 mid-size luxury crossover, family oriented QX60 and urban adventure oriented QX30 – the QX80 offers a powerful, contemporary and commanding presence. The 2019 Infiniti QX80 is a powerful, full-size SUV created with an inclusive luxury mindset, offering premier amenities for every passenger.

Redesigned for the 2018 model year, the QX80 has been a popular choice for luxury buyers in North America. For the 2019 model year, QX80 LUXE models add standard Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection and Predictive Forward Collision Warning, along with an exclusive new model, the QX80 LIMITED.

The QX80 LIMITED is the premier expression of INFINITI and includes exclusive content, such as custom dark machine-finished 22-inch wheels, matte silver open-pore Ash wood trim and satin chrome elements.

Along with the new LIMITED, the QX80 LUXE and QX80 LUXE AWD models continue to stand apart with a refined and spacious cabin that features high-quality materials, a hand-crafted finish, and advanced driver assistance technologies.

EXTERIOR

The 2019 INFINITI QX80 continues the bold interpretation of Powerful Elegance design language with unmistakable signature design elements. It features a commanding presence with powerful muscularity, enhanced horizontal movement and iconic double-arch grille and signature headlamps.

At 210.2 inches in length, 75.8 inches tall with roof rails, 79.9 inches wide and a 121.1-inch wheelbase, the QX80 exterior incorporates geometric and organic shapes to combine power with elegance. Yet despite its scale, the design communicates a clear sense of elegance and human artistry.

The QX80 also features the brand’s human-eye headlamps, which employ triple light guide technology to offer maximum lighting and visibility from every angle. Automatic on/off LED headlights with High Beam Assist are standard, as are LED fog lights. Adaptive Front lighting System and headlight washers are also available (standard on LIMITED model). At the rear of the vehicle, the slim, sharp combination taillights echo the headlamp shape and employ LED technology.

Another INFINITI signature, the crescent-cut D-pillar lies parallel with the roofline. Like the shoulder line, the elegant design of the D-pillar enhances the horizontal aspect of the QX80’s upper body. Every 2019 QX80 also includes standard power liftgate and power sliding glass moonroof with one-touch open/close.

With a drag coefficient of 0.367 Cd – competitive with the most aerodynamic designs in the segment – the 2019 INFINITI QX80 features a range of modifications to better direct air over, around and under the vehicle. INFINITI has applied its zero-lift approach, maximizing stability at higher speeds. The body also enhances air flow, particularly off the rear, to minimize drag-inducing turbulence. These changes reduce the effects of wind turbulence at higher speeds, leaving the driver feeling more in-control and connected with the road.

The QX80 LUXE models come equipped with cast 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, finished in dark silver paint and are wrapped in 275/60R20 H-rated all-season performance tires. Forged 22-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with low-profile 275/50R22 all-season performance tires are optionally available. The new QX80 LIMITED features unique 22-inch dark-finished forged aluminum-alloy wheels.

The new QX80 LIMITED adds exclusive exterior treatments, including stainless steel running board caps, INFINITI logo under running board welcome lighting, satin chrome exterior trim, satin chrome roof rails and cross bars, unique front and rear bumper lower finishers and LIMITED rear hatch emblem.

The 2019 INFINITI QX80 is available in 10 solid, metallic and pearlescent paint finishes – Liquid Platinum, Smoky Quartz, Graphite Shadow, Hermosa Blue, Mocha Almond, Black Obsidian, Champagne Quartz, Moonstone White, Mineral Black and Anthracite Gray, which is exclusively available with the new LIMITED model. Each color is hand-polished and inspected by INFINITI’s Takumi master craftsmen for maximum depth, shine and luster.

INTERIOR

The high-quality, handcrafted 2019 INFINITI QX80 interior is one of the most luxurious, highest-quality passenger compartments created by the company to date. Finely tailored and crafted by hand, there is an enhanced human artistry throughout the large, roomy cabin, providing a sense of upscale luxury. Advanced technologies and refinement measures enhance the driving experience and provide ambience driver and passengers alike.

The QX80’s roominess, matched with luxury style, makes it capable of transporting up to eight adults and their belongings. The interior cabin offers a comfortable space and personal controls for every occupant. It features standard 7-passenger seating capacity, with 8-passenger capacity available.

Every QX80 comes with a standard 10-way power driver’s seat, including 2-way power lumbar support, along with an 8-way power passenger’s seat, including 2-way power lumbar support. Heated front seats are standard on LUXE models, with heated and cooled front seats standard on the new QX80 LIMITED. A comfortable 2nd row captain’s chairs with tip-up easy entry for 3rd row and a power 60/40-split fold-flat and reclining 3rd row bench seat complete the seating. For QX80 owners desiring 8-passenger seating, a 60/40 split 2nd row bench seat is available. Leather-appointed seating is standard for all three rows and available semi-aniline leather appointments with color-contrast piping.

A variety of interior trims are available. In addition to the standard Stratford Burl gloss wood trim, models with Graphite leather are offered with a dark brown Espresso Burl. With Wheat or Saddle Brown upholstery, an even darker Charcoal Burl trim is available.

INFINITI’s InTouch infotainment system allows drivers to personalize driving characteristics and the cabin environment. Adjusted via the 8.0-inch touchscreen, the intuitive system is controlled with multi-touch smartphone controls and voice control, as well as physical buttons beneath the screen and on the steering wheel. Paired with the smart key, INFINITI’s InTouch system memorizes more than 200 settings for two drivers, including customized settings for navigation, seat position, audio, safety systems, climate control presets and configuration of the infotainment system. The car automatically adjusts when it detects each smart key.

Passengers in the front have comprehensive control of the entertainment system. Front-row passengers can use the Remote Control Lock function – accessed through the dashboard or steering wheel – to lock the rear-seat remote control. In addition, front-seat occupants can turn displays on or off, switch between different inputs remotely, select which audio sources are used, and play or pause content. An All Mute button also enables the driver or front passenger to mute every audio source in the cabin, including headphones.

Premium level storage spaces are found throughout the 2019 INFINITI QX80 interior. In the front, the center console features a large smartphone storage area, able to accommodate mobile devices up to 2.9 inches in width. The twin cup holders in the front accommodate two 44oz cups with handles. The storage area beneath the front passenger armrest, at 9.4 inches in height, can now hold up to three upright 1.0-liter bottles. The space is shaped to accommodate tablet devices stood vertically. All doors feature storage areas for bottles and other items, with the second-row center console providing further spaces to hold mobile devices and other valuables.

Cargo capacity measures 49.6 cu ft when the third row of seats is folded down. This provides sufficient space to store four large suitcases, four golf bags, or a baby-stroller stored lengthways, without impairing rear visibility for the driver. With all three rows of seats in place, the trunk offers 16.6 cubic feet of storage capacity, enough to store a pair of full-sized suitcases upright.

POWERTRAINS

The 2019 INFINITI QX80 come standard with an advanced 5.6-liter DOHC V8 engine, delivering ample on-road performance. Combining the combustion efficiency of Direct Injection Gasoline, and the responsive acceleration of VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) technology, the V8 engine produces 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. The engine is matched with a smooth-shifting 7-speed automatic transmission featuring Adaptive Shift Control and manual shift mode with Downshift Rev Matching.

The QX80 is available with two-wheel drive or INFINITI All-Mode 4WD, the latter enabling four-wheel traction when conditions dictate it, and off-road capability when the driver demands it. With optimal all-season power delivery, the rear-biased drivetrain defaults to rear-wheel drive, continually adjusting power distribution between front and rear axles. In two-wheel drive configuration, the 2019 QX80’s fuel economy is rated at 14 mpg city, 20 mpg highway and 16 mpg combined. Four-wheel drive variants are capable of 13 mpg city, 19 mpg highway and 15 mpg combined.

Drivers can customize the four-wheel drive system via a dial in the center console. The system sits in auto mode by default, using a computer-controlled transfer case to instantly redistribute engine torque to the wheels with the most traction. Permanent high and low-range four-wheel drive settings are also available. The high-range setting is designed to take on moderate off-road driving and snow; the low-range function empowers drivers to tackle more demanding off-road conditions, with steeper inclines and declines, when more traction is needed.

The four-wheel drive system is backed up by the four-wheel Active Brake Limited Slip system, which responds to wheel-spin by automatically applying brakes to each spinning wheel, and assists in redistributing torque to other wheels to maximize traction and control.

The 2019 INFINITI QX80 fully independent double-wishbone suspension, with Dual-Flow Path twin-tube shock absorbers, offers a taut yet comfort-oriented ride, with the suspension engineered to filter out poor road conditions and keep occupants comfortable. Whether at cruising speeds, on busy urban roads, or on a winding highway, the QX80 remains composed at all times.

The QX80’s standard Rear Auto-Leveling Suspension automatically adjusts suspension pressure to maintain an optimum ride height with cargo in the trunk or a trailer on tow. This allows the QX80 to tow up to 8,500 lbs, and carry up to 95.1 cu ft of interior cargo volume with third- and second-row seats folded. By keeping the vehicle at an optimal height, the QX80 can remain stable and continues to offer responsible handling and braking, improving driver confidence when towing or carrying heavier loads.
