Infiniti QX80 (Z62)

Infiniti QX56 / QX80

Model Years Produced: 2011 to Current


The Infiniti QX80 is essentially a Nissan Armada with a somewhat nicer interior. It was named the QX56 when it debuted in 2011 and was renamed to the QX80 in 2014. The QX80 received a facelift in 2018, followed by a mid-cycle refresh in 2022 (coinciding with the Armada).



  • Comfortable ride
  • Engine is dependable and makes good power


  • Bad fuel economy
  • Feels dated compared to luxury competitors
  • Lacks many of the luxury features of its competitors (panoramic sunroof, heads-up display, massage seats)
  • Not enough of an upgrade over the Armada to justify the price difference
