The 2008 Infiniti QX56 is a full-size luxury SUV that can be best described as an elegant beast. Fine quality details and luxury appointments are met by standard V8 power and body-on-frame truck DNA.
While the presence of luxury is evident in the QX, what lies beneath the skin is a truck based chassis that serves as a base to a platform that can tow as much as 9,000 pounds on the rear wheel drive model.
The QX is powered by a 5.6 liter V8 that comes from the full size Nissan Titan pickup truck. That V8's 320 horsepower is sent to the rear wheels, or an all wheel drive setup via a 5-speed automatic transmission.
Gas mileage ranges from 12 miles per gallon city to 18 miles per gallon highway.
Base MSRP for the 2008 Infiniti QX56 is $52,250. Fully loaded, with 4-wheel drive will cost around $60,000. The QX56 also comes with a 6 year, 70,000-mile power train warranty.
The Infiniti QX56 provides immense power along with the off-road capability of a full-size truck... without sacrificing an ounce of luxury.
