The all-new 2011 Infiniti QX56 is totally redesigned from the platform up. Its new high-stiffness frame structure enhances ride comfort while reducing noise, vibration and harshness.
The new 5.6-liter V8 engine combines the responsive acceleration of Infiniti’s VVEL (Variable Valve Event Lift) technology with the efficiency of Direct Injection Gasoline and 7-speed automatic transmission. With 400 horsepower and 413 lb.-ft. of torque, the QX can handle tasks such as towing boats or trailers (8,500-pound towing capacity) while also offering 14 percent better fuel economy (EPA Combined) than the previous generation QX.
The 2011 Infiniti QX is available in two well-equipped models: Infiniti QX56 2WD and Infiniti QX56 4WD. Each is equipped with the advanced 5.6-liter V8 and 7-speed automatic transmission and a full range of luxury and performance features including leather-appointed seating, Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System, Around View Monitor and Bose Premium Audio system.
The 2011 Infiniti QX design is dynamic. The bold front chrome grille is flanked by automatic on/off bi-functional xenon headlights with windshield wiper interlock and integrated front fog lights. Adaptive Front lighting System with auto-leveling headlights and headlight washers are also available.
A front underbody spoiler, functional rear liftgate spoiler and redesigned side mirrors help provide aerodynamics of 0.36 Cd and zero lift. The QX’s strong presence is accented by the powerful wheel and tire combinations (standard 20-inch and available 22-inch) and a palette of six distinctive exterior colors.
Base model estimated mpg: 14/20
Estimated starting price: $56,700
