Infiniti revealed the official pricing of two more of recently-renamed models in the American market. They are the QX80 (formerly known as the QX56) and the QX50 (previously called the ES). They are both utility vehicles, but one is a large and weird-looking barge, and the other a compact crossover.
Let’s begin with the barge, which looks like a cartoon character that’s somehow escaped into the real world. The QX80 is exclusively powered by a 5.6-liter V8 engine which suits its massive size, and can be had with rear- or all-wheel drive. When you are getting a car of this caliber, you ought to have the AWD. Honestly the two-wheel-drive version seems a bit pointless. But then it is significantly cheaper.
The Infiniti QX80 RWD is priced at $61,350, while the AWD version starts from $64,450.
As for the smaller, more efficient QX50, you get a 3.5 liter V6 engine across the range. It makes 325-horsepower and sends all of it through a 7-speed automatic transmission to rear or all four wheels, depending on boxes you tick while ordering the car. Standard features in the 2014 model include leather-appointed seating, Intelligent Key and RearView Monitor.
Prices for the Infiniti QX50 starts at $34,400 for the base RWD model, $35,800 for the AWD version, $36,750 for the RWD with Journey trim level, and $38,150 for AWD Journey.
