The 2015 Infiniti QX80 had its premiere at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. The new model will come with a new redesigned look, an enlarge list of equipment and a new trim level. The new Qx80 will have a new, unique look, while it will keep its old dimensions and platform. In addition, the new model will also keep the predecessor’s powertrain without any new engines offered. With this being said, we can conclude that the new full-size SUV will differ from the previous one only in exterior and interior appearance and new features added.

As for the ones who shared our positive opinion about it, we can only say that the new 2015 QX80 will be far from a disappointment. The new model is expected to be released by the end of this year.
