Exceptional towing, acceleration and torque will help you get the job done. You appreciate the finer things in life, the vehicle you drive should not be the exception. Style, performance, sophistication is in a class of its own with this stunning INFINITI QX56 7-passenger. You've found the one you've been looking for. Your dream car. The quintessential INFINITI -- This INFINITI QX56 7-passenger speaks volumes about its owner, about uncompromising individuality, a passion for driving and standards far above the ordinary.
For 2011, Infiniti's top-end SUV has been completely redesigned, with an all-new exterior design, a new platform and an updated powertrain. The end result is a larger vehicle than the previous model, but with increased power and excellent towing abilities.
After several years of being based on Nissan's Titan and Armada platform, the 2011 QX56 has been moved to a modified version of the Nissan Patrol platform--an SUV that is used for military purposes elsewhere in the world and can hold its own off-road against competitors such as the Land Rover Discovery. The QX56 can be had in either two- or 4-wheel-drive configuration.
Only one engine is available: a muscular 5.6L V8 also found in the Infinity M56. Thanks to direct injection and variable valve timing, the motor now makes a full 400 horsepower--up from 320 in 2010. With the now-standard 7-speed automatic transmission in place of last year's 5-speed unit, the new engine is rated at 13 mpg city and nearly 20 highway, which is a small improvement over last year's numbers. Towing capacity is a stout 8,500 pounds, which falls slightly from last year's 9,000-pound rating for 2-wheel-drive models. The overall driving experience is said to be quite good, with light steering and excellent acceleration making the QX56 feel a lot smaller than it actually is. Add to that Infiniti's Around View System, which provides a 360-degree view inside the cockpit, and taking on parking lots becomes much less daunting.
Standard safety features include a plethora of airbags, both in the front and side positions for both driver and passenger, as well as side curtain airbags for all three rows of seating. Other items include anti-lock brakes, traction control and Vehicle Dynamic Control. Optional are Intelligent Cruise Control, a lane-departure warning system, a blind spot warning system and Forward Collision Warning with Distance Control Assist. An available hydraulic body motion control system minimizes side to side motion while maintaining good wheel articulation for off-roading.
For 2011, the QX56 comes in only one trim package, but it features an impressive list of standard equipment which includes 18-inch alloy wheels, xenon HID headlamps, heated leather seats, power folding third row seat, keyless start, navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and a Bose 10-speaker stereo system with a six-disc in-dash changer. A Deluxe Touring Package adds 22-inch wheels, special leather seats, advanced climate control, heated and cooled front seats and heated rear seats and headlight washers. A Technology Package adds all of the available safety features in addition to adaptive front lighting.
High-end Technology Features, Comfortable Seating For Eight, Excellent Stability And Utility.
Infiniti's flagship SUV gets a refresh for 2011, with new styling throughout that looks different than just about anything else on the road. The front end sees more flowing fenders and updated headlamps, while side scallops have been added behind the front wheels. Overall, the new SUV is longer, lower and wider than the 2010 model. Underneath its softer exterior, the platform has shifted from the Nissan Armada to the Nissan Patrol--an SUV not offered in the US--which makes for an even more solid luxury SUV. The 5.6L V8 has been reworked to produce 400 horsepower. A 7-speed automatic transmission is now standard.
Although some might consider its styling a bit polarizing, the QX56 has a lot to offer for the buyer looking for a full-size body-on-frame SUV. Despite its size, the QX56 is smooth, quick, and maneuverable and it features a host of luxury amenities as standard equipment.
