Infiniti QX56 SUV

With around 9,000 lbs. of towing capacity, the Infiniti QX56 is the highest in its class. It comes in one trim level, with only key options such as: DVD entertainment system, 4WD / 2WD and a bench instead of captain chairs as the second row. Other features, which come standard, are a ten-speaker Bose system, DVD-based navigation system, leather trim for all seats, dual-climate control, 18-inch chrome alloy wheels and an adaptive cruise control system. The truck is powered by a 5.6 L VK56DE V8 engine and a 5-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Each cylinder in the engine is lined with cast iron and the valve train is a DOHC design with four valves per cylinder. Infiniti designed the QX56's throttle responsiveness to correspond to specific drive train modes. For example, when the driver selects all-wheel drive, the throttle becomes less sensitive, presumably to allow easier regulation of acceleration when off-road. As with the Nissan Armada, it is built in Canton, Mississippi; and is currently only available in the United States, Canada and Saudi Arabia. It is also the first Infiniti built in the United States. Since priced lower than the Lexus LX, the QX56 has become a success for Infiniti, outselling the Lexus model. Since the demise of the Q45 after 2006, the QX56 is the most expensive Infiniti in North America, and is Infiniti's only full-size vehicle. The QX56 competes directly with the Lincoln Navigator and the Cadillac Escalade full-size luxury sport utilities, as well as the smaller Lexus LX470.The QX beats the Navigator, the Cadillac and the Lexus in size. Of course, with this comes the fuel inefficiency, but seeing that the model will run the buyer a pretty penny, this does not seem to be a top concern when the model is discussed in the show room.
