2018 Infiniti QX80 Facelift

2018 Infiniti QX80 FaceliftThe QX80 gets new headlights and taillights inspired by the QX80 Monograph concept that debuted earlier this year in New York. We wish it looked more like the concept, which also got a new front fascia, a flush rear bumper with sculpted dual exhaust tips, and flush door handles, but apparently Infiniti thought this was good enough.

Unfortunately, the interior largely carries over and isn’t that much different from the Nissan Armada. Despite the déjà vu design, drivers will find new wood trim, redesigned cup holders, and revised instrument panel lighting. Infiniti also added additional insulation, black carpeting, and an updated rear seat entertainment system with larger displays.

Given the fierce competition in the full-size luxury SUV segment from the likes of the 2018 Lincoln Navigator and even the aging Cadillac Escalade, these minor changes aren’t likely to produce any seismic changes in the segment.

Elsewhere, the QX80 is largely untouched and still very much related to the Nissan Patrol. According to the American magazine, the car’s mechanical package is unchanged, meaning motivation still comes from a 298kW/560Nm 5.6-litre V8.
