Infiniti is all in for the crossover and sport-utility market, with only two sedans and no sport wagons or minivans. Two crossovers and a full-blown SUV, the gargantuan QX80, fill out offerings by Nissan’s premium brand.
The QX80’s construction is body-on-frame, so it can perform duties that are beyond the capabilities of the typical crossover. With 9.2 inches of ground clearance, high and low 4-wheel-drive settings, and settings for snow and tow modes, it’s no slouch off-road. It also can accommodate six or seven passengers, depending on the configuration of the second-row seats, and tow a whopping 8,500 pounds — for example, a 28-foot travel trailer, four horses, or even a cabin cruiser.
