"The new QX56 blends a luxurious and comfortable interior with cutting-edge technology and impressive power. These attributes were major factors in its finish at the top of the luxury fullsize utility vehicle category."[*]
"This interior has an attention to design detail and material finish that rivals Lexus and even Land Rover."
"With this direct-injected mill under its expansive hood, the 5850-pound QX56 (down 161 pounds) can definitely move."
"Perhaps the coolest feature is at once both an indulgence and a potential lifesaver." (tire pressure alarm/gauge) [*]
"Direct fuel injection (DI) is one ingredient in the not-so-secret sauce that transforms last year's adequate port-injected 5.6 liter V8 into this year's powerhouse."
"It packs a strong engine, excellent manners and a well-equipped cabin, and it's the most fuel-efficient of its peers."
"The QX is a very good example of what conventional wisdom might call a "dying breed"[*]
"If you're in the market for a fullsize luxury SUV with all the latest technological wizardry designed to make driving it easier, look no further."
"Is there a better SUV in this category? Perhaps not."
"Body roll is, indeed, minimal, especially for such a large, comfortable SUV. And it (Hydraulic Body Motion Control) keeps head toss down, as proven by short back-to-back drives of the new QX against an Escalade."[*]
"Refinement is the keyword for the interior..."
"The QX is a deal compared with the Escalade, GL550, and Lexus GX460, and you're getting more truck for your money than before." [*]
"…it proved surprisingly nimble for rapid motoring on roads that would entertain a sports car or motorcycle pilot."
"Buyers looking for bragging rights in this segment might want to talk up the hydraulic body-motion-control system from the touring package, which replaces the antiroll bars with a hydraulic system connecting the shock absorbers side to side."[*]
"…there's a lot of luxury going on in the cabin."
"Thanks to the major horsepower and body-on-frame construction, the QX can tow an impressive 8500 pounds in either rear- or four-wheel drive configuration."[*]
Edmunds' Inside Line
"And power they will have thanks to a direct-injection 5.6-liter V8 that delivers 400 horsepower."
"The cabin is stuffed to the roof with Infiniti's latest electronics."[*]
