2008 INFINITI QX56 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


We cross shopped tons of large SUVs (MB GL450, Armada, Toyota Sequoia & Land Cruiser, GMC Denali, Cadillac Escalade, Lexus LX570, ) and this was the obvious choice. The 08 interior upgrade is dramatic and makes this truly feel like a luxury SUV. Lots of technology/luxury (HID lights, keyless start, HDD Navi, Front/Rear Sonar, intelligent cruise control, rear Camera, heated steering wheel, power 3rd row seat etc.) that make this truck feel like a million bucks. The interior is very flexible. We have the bench seat and 2 car seats and can still get 2-3 adults in the 3rd row. We take several trips/year from VA to HH, SC and can get 16/17 MPG even w/Thule box on top. No issues with reliabilty

Best Features

Heated steering wheel, keyless go, Hard Drive Navi with traffic alerts, front/rear sonar, intelligent cruise control, tons of room. Top notch fit/finish. Great dealer experience and excellent reliability

Worst Features

The styling is ok- it has a face only a mother could love. Then again my wife (who has great taste in things- at least besides her choice in husbands) thinks that it looks classy yet tough and capable. Gas mileage is an obvious concern but what do you expect from a 5K lb truck that can tow 9K lbs
