The QX80: A Symphony of Light and Line

The 2025 INFINITI QX80 embodies the vanguard of Infiniti design, a potent fusion of heritage and innovation. Its form radiates confidence, a bold posture defined by strong lines and meticulously balanced proportions. An anti-wedge profile, its long hood a canvas for crisp shoulder lines, whispers of motion even at rest, belying its substantial size.

The signature Infiniti double-arch grille takes center stage, its form echoing the organic sway of a bamboo forest. This motif hints at the power and command that awaits the driver. Lighting elements are meticulously placed, sculpting a face both striking and sophisticated. Narrow, multi-faceted LED daytime running lights flank the upper grille, echoing the bamboo theme. They dance alongside the illuminated Infiniti emblem, now boasting a more three-dimensional presence. Tucked into the lower fascia corners are the combination lamps, their presence subtle yet purposeful. Discreet air curtain vents flank them, channels for aerodynamic optimization.

The QX80’s sleek minimalism becomes undeniable in profile. Flush door handles, emerging upon unlock like a welcoming gesture, contribute to a clean aesthetic and enhanced aerodynamics. Two harmonious character lines weave a visual narrative – one flowing from the headlamps through the shoulder line, the other tracing a path from the front bumper to the lower doors. Blacked-out pillars visually lift the upper body, lending an air of elegant weightlessness.

The rear is a captivating culmination of light and form. A full-width LED element stretches across the back, its segmented design a captivating echo of the grille and DRLs. Its curved profile evokes the tranquility of light dancing on water. Over 300 LEDs, cloaked in a smoked finish, ignite in a vibrant red, a bold upper section cascading into a series of horizontal light bars below.

The QX80’s sartorial options are nothing short of stunning, offering seven striking body paints. Headlining this collection is a new Infiniti color – Dynamic Metal. Years in development, this innovative finish imbues the QX80 with the essence of liquid metal, emphasizing its sculpted surfaces. A meticulous process ensures metallic flakes lie perfectly flat, resulting in a smooth texture and a hue that transforms dramatically with each change in perspective. The QX80 is not merely a vehicle; it’s a rolling work of art.

A Sanctuary of Sophistication: The QX80 Interior

Drawing inspiration from Japanese artistry and the concept of miyabi, the 2025 QX80 interior embodies a harmonious blend of layered luxury and intuitive technology. Soft-touch materials reign supreme, meticulously layered to cradle passengers in comfort. High-quality leather, wood trims, and suede seamlessly integrate with touchscreens, creating a sophisticated yet functional environment.

The dual 14.3-inch display concept takes center stage. The configurable driver’s display offers three distinct views, while the central touchscreen boasts Google built-in for seamless navigation and app access. For added convenience, a separate 9-inch touchscreen manages climate control, seating adjustments, and drive modes. Haptic feedback ensures effortless interaction, keeping these functions distinct from infotainment operations. Sleek push buttons replace the traditional gear shifter, freeing up valuable cabin space.

Ambient lighting adds another layer of personalization, with 64 color options to set the mood. USB Type-C ports are strategically placed throughout the cabin for effortless device charging. The available center console cool box keeps beverages refreshingly chilled, perfect for extended journeys.

QX80 AUTOGRAPH: Luxury Redefined

The AUTOGRAPH grade elevates luxury to new heights. Its two-tone roof and dark chrome accents exude a distinguished presence, while unique 22-inch wheels complete the exterior transformation. Inside, meticulously crafted semi-aniline leather seats with hand-stitched details showcase impeccable craftsmanship. Open-pore ash wood trim with laser-cut inlays and delicate aluminum accents further enhance the sense of refined elegance.

Unparalleled Comfort for All

Unlike its competitors, the QX80 prioritizes first-class comfort in every row. Heated and cooled seats are available for the first two rows, while heated seats make their debut for the third row – a segment-first. Massaging seats further elevate the experience for both driver and passengers on long journeys. In the AUTOGRAPH grade, an intuitive rear touchscreen allows passengers to control climate settings and adjust rear seat options.

Innovation at Your Fingertips

The QX80 boasts a suite of innovative technologies designed to enhance your driving experience. Front Wide View utilizes camera technology to provide a panoramic view on both displays, helping you navigate tight spaces and see around corners. Invisible Hood View projects a virtual image of what’s directly in front of the vehicle, making navigating curbs and obstacles a breeze.

The 3D Enhanced AroundView Monitor with Moving Object Detection offers a comprehensive view of your surroundings, while the Smart Rear View Mirror provides enhanced image clarity, especially in low-light conditions. For those who tow trailers, a special zoom view simplifies the hitching process.

Capture the Journey

The innovative Journey Diary functionality allows you to capture photos and videos using the QX80’s cameras, creating lasting memories of your adventures. The In-Car Camera offers additional benefits, allowing you to check on rear passengers or view the cabin remotely using the INFINITI smartphone app.

Immersive Sound

The 2025 QX80 is the first in its segment to feature Klipsch® premium audio systems, delivering exceptional sound reproduction. The standard 14-speaker system provides exceptional clarity, while the available 24-speaker Klipsch Reference Premiere Audio System creates a truly immersive listening experience for all passengers.

Effortless Power

The QX80 delivers a confident and refined driving experience. The standard 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged engine produces 450 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, offering significant power increases over the previous model.

Command the Drive, Unwind in Comfort: The QX80 Experience

The 2025 INFINITI QX80 strikes a perfect balance between empowering drivers and pampering passengers.

Tailored Performance:

  • Choose between rear-wheel drive for confident handling or intelligent INFINITI All-Mode 4WD for all-weather capability (standard on SENSORY and AUTOGRAPH grades).
  • A convenient “Auto” mode in the 4WD system adapts to varying road conditions for optimal traction.
  • Customize your drive with a selection of modes: Standard, Eco, Sport, Snow, Tow, or Personal. Each mode adjusts powertrain response, steering, driver-assistance features, and even the suspension (if equipped with Dynamic Digital Suspension) for a tailored driving experience.

Effortless Maneuvering and Enhanced Comfort:

  • Available Electronic Air Suspension provides exceptional versatility. It lowers for improved aerodynamics at highway speeds, raises for off-roading, and dips to an Easy Access level when parked, simplifying passenger entry and cargo loading.
  • The Dynamic Digital Suspension actively monitors and regulates vehicle movement for a smooth, controlled ride. It minimizes body roll during cornering and unwanted bouncing on uneven roads.

Advanced Engineering for a Quiet Cabin:

    • A significantly stiffer frame and an electric power steering rack with increased torsional stiffness contribute to a more responsive drive and facilitate advanced driver-assistance features.
    • Extensive sound-deadening materials create a remarkably quiet cabin. Highway noise is reduced by 3 decibels compared to the previous model.
