More About This Model

Nearly everything about the 2011 Infiniti QX56 is new, but the reaction to its styling conjures up the same old winces as the previous generation did. And that's too bad, since underneath the bloated exterior resides a luxurious cabin, competent drivetrain and an abundance of technological wizardry.

Compared to the outgoing QX56, the 2011 model is about an inch wider and longer, but loses 3 inches in height. It now makes 400 horsepower (a jump of 80 hp), features a seven-speed automatic transmission (two more gears than before) and is built on the global Nissan Patrol platform, which is 26 percent stiffer than the old Titan-based chassis. While all of these improvements are welcome, one unfortunate byproduct is a smaller third-row seat, which is suitable for smaller passengers only.

On the plus side, the improvements to the 2011 Infiniti QX56 outweigh the smaller rear quarters. New additions include a new automatic four-wheel-drive system, hill-start assist, a Snow mode for slippery terrain and, despite the increased power output, the QX gains a few miles per gallon. The new QX also corners flatter than before thanks to an optional Hydraulic Body Control System in place of traditional roll bars.

As good as the new QX56 is, its future remains bleak, as luxury SUV sales have plummeted industrywide by more than 60 percent since their peak in 2006. For those who still find a need for a large, luxurious SUV, the 2011 Infiniti QX56 represents a solid choice if you can get past its looks. Other vehicles to consider include the Cadillac Escalade, the all-terrain-capable Land Rover LR4 and Lexus LX 570 and the stately Mercedes-Benz GL550 -- all of which seem to elicit fewer negative responses to their styling.

Should I lease or buy a 2011 INFINITI QX56?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
