Review

We purchased this 2010 to replace our 2006 QX56 after running the numbers and arriving on the positive end of the deal! The 2010 handles considerably better, due primarily to the larger diameter/lower profile tire package. In October we drove this beast on a 3,000 mile round trip, in complete comfort. The electronics, incredibly smooth ride and ample power made this junket truly easy. Even the three year old in his car seat had zero complaints (DVD player to the rescue!). Gas mileage is not good, but the trade results in superior safety and performance.


Favorite Features

Electronics - truly amazing in this vehicle. Nav system is great (and finally touch screen), stability and traction control are perfect.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage is horrible, but to be expected in a vehicle of this size.

Review

Have had the truck for six weeks. Fantastic ride, fantastic build quality. Traded my Escalade. The Infiniti is so superior in every way. The quietness in combination with the standard Bose Stereo is unbelievable. This is a very high quality, smooth riding, luxury machine. Push button fold down third row seats, back up camera, extremely comfortable seats make this a vehicle I will keep for some time. Gas mileage about the same as the Escalade. Much more vehicle than the Lexus or MB options I considered, and considerably less expensive--but the finish and quality are equal to any.


Favorite Features

Back up camera and the auto moving steering wheel.


Suggested Improvements

I cannot think of any. It has it all.

Review

Have had this vehicle for two weeks. Have been driving Escalades. This is a far superior vehicle in fit and finish, ride, quality electronics and stereo. The ride on the road is the best I have ever experienced. this truck is so good "on road" that I doubt it is what "off roaders" seek, but I love it.


Favorite Features

Interior finish and appearance, standard stereo is second to none-they do not even offer an upgrade and do not need to. Book calls for Premium, but it runs great on Regular. Just wish it went a little farther on gas.

Great SUV! Great design! Luxury is unmatched at a great price! Takes several days just to learn about all the options/features that it offers! There is plenty of room even for my 6ft 3 inch body!


Favorite Features

Style and design. Ride is great!

Review

This car replaced a Yukon XL 2500 and was chosen because of its ability to tow a 9000 pound trailer, a requirement for us that eliminated many alternatives. In the end, it rides as well and is quieter than our E320 sedan. Interior materials, especially in wheat, are excellent in presentation having both a quality feel and look. Electronics is probably the best out there although not perfect. Handling is like a large car...easy to place. It handles NY/NJ broken roads better than anything...partially thanks to standard 33" tall tires, larger than any SUV other than a Hummer and sister SUV the Nissan Armada. 2010 is its last year, being replaced an Infinti model of the new 2010 Nissan Patrol.


Favorite Features

Ability to swallow potholes, steel plates, and rough roads that dominate NY/NJ. Quiet, comfortable ride. Precise, agile, car-like handling. Very rich feeling materials in interior. Very good electronics: audio, nav, phone, other features.


Suggested Improvements

Nav system only lets you select top 5 items as destination when driving, a problem if you don't know the address; the excellent voice control talks too much placing a phone call; would like more thigh and lateral support in the seat; higher quality monotube shocks would have been nice.

Review

I just bought the car of my dreams. Only have had it a few days, but it is definitely what a luxury suv should be. Rich styling, super comfortable and size is awesome for my 2, and soon to be, 3 kids. Smooth and fast for its size, it's definitely a head turner.


Favorite Features

Styling is drop dead gorgeous. Comfort, with spacious legroom and great handling for a large vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

None yet.

Review

I have always owned sports cars and this is my first SUV due to the fact I now have 3 kids, 2 car seats and a booster seat. I am very picky when it comes to cars and I test drove every large luxury SUV on the market, Escalade, Denai, Sequoia, etc... I wanted something luxury on the inside, that could haul lots of people and gear, plus I like AWD for safety and wanted something I could go off road with that actually has a locking differential with true 4x4 high and low. This truck has it all, it's rugged off road, can tow 9000 lbs, crazy technology and luxury and being my first SUV this thing handles and rides better that any large luxury SUV. This truck is the best kept secret out there!


Favorite Features

Real time traffic Nav, back-up camera, great 2nd and 3rd row room, handles great for its size, true off road capability, ability to drive in RWD, Auto (wich is AWD), 4x4 high and 4x4 low, towing capacity, engine is smooth and has great acceleration for a large truck. Luxury on inside & rugged out.


Suggested Improvements

Bose stereo could have more watts, steering wheel will vibrate on rough or uneven roads, gas mileage is poor, but expected with a 6000 lb monster, maybe a hybrid version. Not much can really be improved here, this truck has it all.
