Because road conditions are unpredictable, the QX80 automatically adjusts for better traction. The available Infiniti All-Mode® AWD monitors and tunes torque between front and rear wheels to help maintain grip on rain-soaked or snow-slicked roads. Yet individually selectable 4H and 4L modes also let you make the choice yourself. Infiniti engineering empowers the QX80 driver with a greater sense of command in all seasons.
The engine of the QX80 was designed to be both more powerful and more efficient. The 5.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) V8 features dual overhead cams, 32 valves and sophisticated VVEL valve control that enhances throttle response as well as economy. 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque deliver an impressive 8,500lb towing capacity[*] and the ability to pass with confidence. Acceleration is specially honed to the senses, increasing with a smooth, rising swell. The capability of the QX80 is matched with sensory reward.
