Two Infinitis...and Beyond: Pricing for the 2014 QX50 and QX80 SUVs
Earlier this week, we brought you pricing on the Infiniti QX60 and QX70 crossovers, formerly the JX35 and FX, respectively. Infiniti, that up-and-coming Japanese luxury make that has nothing but "Q" and "QX" names now, has just brought us pricing on its largest SUV--the QX80 (formerly the QX56) and its smallest, the QX50 (formerly the EX35). We're going to start with the larger, and frankly more interesting, QX80, which starts at $62,345, including $995 for destination and handling, for a rear-wheel-drive version. That's unchanged from the 2013 Infiniti QX56's pricing. All-wheel drive brings that price up to $65,445. From there, options are fairly limited: Theater package ($3,100), upgraded wheels and tires ($2,450), Deluxe Touring package ($4,650), and Technology package ($3,250). A bench seat in the middle instead of captain's chairs is available at no extra cost.The smaller Infiniti QX50 comes in at $35,395, including $995 for destination and handling, for a base, rear-wheel-drive model. Adding all-wheel drive drives the cost up $1,400. The uplevel Infiniti QX50 Journey comes in at $37,745, and all-wheel drive comes in $1,400 above that. All of those prices reflect a $2,500 price drop for the 2014 model year, perhaps representative of the cheaper yen that has made prices more competitive in the U.S.Options for the QX50 include a Premium package ($3,050), Deluxe Touring package ($2,400), and Technology package ($2,750). The QX80 comes powered by a 390-horsepower, 5.6-liter V-8, and the QX50 has but a mere 325 horsepower from its 3.7-liter V-6. Both are on sale now. Source: Infiniti
