Let’s explore 2024 Infiniti QX80! Infiniti QX80 has been known as this reliable luxury SUV with three row arrangement, and it’s quite normal if people are wondering whether there would be a 2024 Infiniti QX80. With its impressive hauling power, it would be too shame if the vehicle stops being made. It’s true that the current model is outdated, considering that it was first launched in 2014, which is almost a decade ago. QX80 has superior performance and features, but age starts showing its true ability and performance.
Will There Be a 2024 Infiniti QX80 Model? Redesign
As it was mentioned before, Infiniti QX80 is an impressive SUV with luxurious features that make them exclusive and somewhat one-of-a-kind. However, you have to admit that Lincoln Navigator or Caddy Escalade is more popular today. They are even more popular then the Hummer H3. Many people want to have (Japanese) luxury vehicle without having to spend a fortune, which makes them turn to a ‘more affordable’ option. Lexus LX570 is a great example of luxury and powerful SUV, but the ‘unfriendly’ price tag isn’t for everyone.
The company isn’t exactly providing direct information about the 2024 model, but there are hints and clues scattered all over the place. It’s most likely there would be a 2024 model although there is no information or whatsoever about its existence or manufacturing process.
2024 Infiniti QX80: Redesigned Outcome on the Outside
The refreshing work would make this Infiniti QX80 the center of attention, for sure. The magnificent beast has impressive front look and also massive dimension. You would definitely notice it when it drives you by.
The standard features and style would include modern wipers that can automatically activate with rain detection technology, a (power) liftgate, and also a power sunroof. If you go with the Premium Select, it would include dark chrome trim and also (dark) mirror covers (on the outside). It includes automatic leveling headlights as a part of its Sensory’s adaptive (front) lighting system. The most expensive trim would be coming with 22 inch of wheels from aluminum.
2024 Infiniti QX80: The Interior Cabin
If changes happening on the exterior area of 2024 Infiniti QX80, expect there would also be some on the interior. Ambient lighting, heated front seats, and (10-way) power seat for the driver would be some of the features you can find on the inside. Of course, you should also expect some of the latest features and technologies, possibly bigger infotainment display screen and other extras that would add up to the comfort and ambiance of the vehicle.
Infiniti QX80 2024 Powertrain and Performance
It’s possible that the Infiniti would be coming with V8 naturally aspirated unit with 5.6 liter capacity that is able to generate 400 hp and 413 Nm of torque. The Infiniti has nimble performance and speedy performance. From stop position to moving, the Infiniti can dart quickly. If you have to compare it to the nine speed gearbox from Nissan, the one used by Nissan doesn’t offer the same quickness and smoothness.
Price and Release Date of 2024 Infiniti QX80
Considering that it would be coming as the 2024 model, it means that the launch would take place in 2023. Or if it is the latest, it may happen in the very beginning of 2024. Moreover, Infiniti QX80 is known as this high end exclusive and luxury vehicle. It means that it shouldn’t be surprising to know about the high tag. But when compared to other high end luxurious types, this one is ‘pretty affordable’. With ‘only’ starting price of $69,000, it’s still affordable.
If you choose to add all wheel driving system (to the base trim), you will have to spend $72,200. Premium Select with rear wheel driving system would cost you $73,400 and you will have to spend $76,500 if you choose the all wheel driving system. The Sensory with all wheel driving system would cost you $83,300. We should know more about 2024 Infiniti QX80 once the company releases official announcement.
Will 2024 Infiniti QX80 Offered as Electric Vehicle?
It’s possible that the future 2024 Infiniti QX80 would be offered not as hybrid vehicle, but as full electric ride. Nissan has made a rather surprising confirmation about their luxury brand, Infiniti. The company said that their series of hybrid technology won’t be a crucial part of the lineup anymore as they are moving toward (mostly) electric products. The transition happens for a reason, but it doesn’t mean that they have completely ditched hybrid series.
A Shocking Confirmation
Nissan introduced their so-called QX Inspiration concept in 2019, during Detroit Auto Show. At that time, they presented three concepts of ‘Inspirations’ that are powered by full battery electric and series of hybrid powertrains.
With the official confirmation they have just made this week, Nissan indirectly has ‘deleted’ their original plan and moved to the new one. It seems that the future Inspirations with series-hybrid technology can’t be delivered to American market with the right mpg ratings as well as the right price. For now, the company wants to focus (and prioritize) their full electric products so they can offer it for American market. It’s done along with future internal combustion powered rides (with advanced system). Nissan admitted that this plan is a part of their reset and re-evaluation plan for the brand’s powertrain and product strategy.
They would still pay detailed attention and focus to customers who want to enjoy luxury and exclusivity, which is the trademark of Infiniti. But they also want to provide various offers and options for their buyers, so their buyers can still enjoy greater versatility when it comes to their beloved brand. That’s why Infiniti wants to offer various powertrain solutions, starting from (advanced) internal combustion engines to full electric technologies.
What Happens Next for 2024 Infiniti QX80?
So, does it mean that 2024 Infiniti QX80 won’t be a part of those series of hybrid lineup anymore? Or will those series-hybrid never be manufactured at all? Nissan said that the series-hybrid technology is still a crucial part of their global (powertrain) strategy. They are still going to produce those lineups, but they won’t be offering it to North American market.
Just to freshen up your memories, Nissan is planning on producing SUV QX Inspiration, Q Inspiration, and then sedan Qs Inspiration, but the process will take place in stages. The new models’ surge would start from 2021 (the second half) with Q Inspiration sedan, then followed by full electric QX Inspiration SUV in 2022. And then the fastback Qs Inspiration would be available in 2023.
New Gen of 2024 Infiniti QX80?
If you are into auto news, you’d know that Infiniti QX80 isn’t exactly new. It was first launched in 2011 and originally named QX56, but it changes to QX80 in 2014. The ride got some refreshment work in 2015 and then 2018, but the basic construction and design remain the same. The latest refresh work happened in 2019 and 2021. Then, the newest one, launched in 2022, showed more improvements especially on the interior cabin, such as bigger touchscreen display (12.3 inch now), new climate control, upgraded apps, and wireless charging.
In 2022, QX80 comes with 3 different trims. The base one is Luxe (set at around $70,600), and then Premium Select (around $75,400), and the highest one is Sensory (set at $82,300). The ride is able to accommodate 7 or 8 people with middle row bench available option. Nissan hasn’t said anything about the upcoming model, especially about the 2024 model. But with all of those electric plans and stuff, hopefully they will make a new gen whose performance won’t be too far different from the 2022 model.
