The 2018 Infiniti QX80 will come with some astonishing improvements. This Patrol-based luxury full-size SUV will receive a facelift, which will bring so much more than a usual mid-cycle update. The model originally dates from 2004 and we have seen several modifications so far. However, this one will be very special. The current generation is present since 2010. It already had one update three years ago, when this SUV received a new name. However, these new changes will be much bigger. The company presented a concept called QX80 Monograph recently. We hope the production model will be a close resemble because the concept looks absolutely mind-blowing. Compared to the current 2017 model, the 2018 QX80 will look much more than a facelifted model, but literally as an all-new, completely redesigned vehicle.
2018 Infiniti QX80 changes
The 2018 Infiniti QX80 will come with various changes in all aspects. However, the most important is new styling. The mechanical aspect of the SUV will not be changed for a so lot. But on the other side, we should see a new styling that will be absolutely amazing. The company presented a concept version that looks miles away better than the current 2017. Although it keeps similar dimensions and overall shape, it is completely different. Pretty much every part of the exterior is completely new. All the lines are sharper and overall shape leaves an impression that aerodynamics are on a much higher level. The 2018 Infiniti QX80 comes with a completely new front end. Headlights are positioned higher, the grille is completely new, while the new bumper features new for lights design, larger air intakes, and several other new details.
2018 Infiniti QX80 engine
When it comes to the powertrain, the 2018 Infiniti QX80 will probably come without changes. Despite these significant visual updates, we will not see bigger changes under the hood. We will see a familiar 5.6-liter V8 engine, which outputs around 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. Although it will continue with the same engine, we could see some increase of power, but even if that happens it won’t be significant. Transmission remains the same 7-speed automatic.
