Best features of 2025 INFINITI QX80.

The 2025 Infiniti QX80 isn't just a luxury SUV—it's a showcase of innovative technologies that elevate the driving experience to new heights. From segment-first advancements to world-first innovations, the QX80 is redefining what's possible in automotive technology. 

One standout feature is the available Biometric Cooling system, a segment-first technology designed to enhance passenger comfort in the second row. Using an infrared sensor embedded in the vehicle's headliner, Biometric Cooling detects when a passenger is feeling hot and swiftly adjusts the temperature and airflow to deliver a refreshing blast of cool air. 

The QX80 Front Wide View

Another groundbreaking technology making its debut in the QX80 is Front Wide View. This world-first feature utilizes cameras positioned around the vehicle to provide a panoramic view of the surroundings, displayed across two expansive 14.3-inch screens. 

With Front Wide View, drivers gain enhanced visibility, making maneuvering in tight spaces and navigating tricky terrain easier and safer than ever before. But the innovation doesn't stop there. 

The QX80 also boasts Invisible Hood View, a revolutionary function that leverages advanced image processing to project a real-time image of the area directly in front of the vehicle onto the in-car displays. 

This technology enhances driver confidence behind the wheel by providing a clear view of obstacles and hazards. Note that the Infiniti Front Wide View neither eliminates blind spots nor warns of moving objects. 

The QX80 Journey Diary

For the adventurous spirits who love to document their escapades, the QX80 offers the Journey Diary function. This innovative feature allows users to capture photos or videos from the vehicle's forward-facing camera and share them on social platforms. 

Whether it's capturing breathtaking scenery or memorable moments with loved ones, the Journey Diary function adds an extra layer of excitement to every journey. 

Of course, no luxury vehicle would be complete without premium audio, and the QX80 delivers with the segment-first Klipsch® premium audio system. Designed to deliver unparalleled sound quality, this audio system immerses passengers in rich, dynamic sound and transforms every drive into a concert-like experience. 

Last but not least, the QX80 offers Personalized Ambient Lighting with 64 color options, allowing drivers to customize the interior ambiance. 

Other innovative features pioneered by the QX80 include Individual Audio and INFINITI-first dual 14.3-inch monolith style displays, remote control rear seat, in-car camera, flush door handles, INFINITI Light Path, INFINITI InTouch® with Google built-in, and electronic air suspension.

Setting a new standard in sound quality and immersion, the 2025 INFINITI QX80 is the first full-size luxury SUV to offer, like its many other state-of-the-art features, Klipsch® premium audio systems. 

Designed in collaboration with engineers from INFINITI and Klipsch, these audio systems seamlessly integrate with the QX80's interior and advanced in-vehicle technologies to deliver an unparalleled listening experience. 

The first two QX80 grades come equipped with a 14-speaker Klipsch audio system, boasting 600 watts of total power and a 12-channel amplifier. 

Stepping up the audio experience, the last two QX80 trim levels feature the Klipsch Reference Premiere Audio System, which raises the bar with 24 speakers, 1,200 watts of power, and Individual Audio functionality. 

This premium system includes titanium tweeters, four High Line roof-mounted speakers, an 8-inch TriPower subwoofer, and a 24-channel amplifier, delivering exceptional clarity and depth across the entire audio spectrum.

One of the standout features of the Klipsch Reference Premiere system is its DynamicAudioReveal™ technology, which actively adjusts audio equalization to minimize background noise and ensure pristine sound reproduction. 

Additionally, the DJX® 3D Surround algorithm creates an immersive listening experience that envelops passengers in lifelike sound. Taking innovation to the next level, the Individual Audio feature allows passengers to customize their listening experience by focusing on specific audio elements, such as navigation directions, music, or phone calls. 

By leveraging metal-trimmed speakers mounted to the front seat headrests, Individual Audio ensures that each occupant can enjoy their preferred audio content without interference. 

The Heart And Performance Of The 2025 Infiniti QX80

2025 INFINITI QX80 engine and performance.

At the heart of every 2025 QX80 model lies the standard VR35DDTT 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, delivering a commendable 450 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission boasting a 40% wider gear-ratio range, the QX80 effortlessly balances dynamic acceleration with efficient highway cruising. 

"The all-new INFINITI QX80's advanced new 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbocharged engine, delivers the highest torque output in our corporation's history," said Ivan Espinosa, senior vice president, Chief Planning Officer. "This gives the driver the feeling that they always have power in reserve, supports effortless towing, and contributes to the all-new QX80's powerful and rewarding drive." 

But performance isn't just about raw power—it's about the driving experience. That's why the 2025 QX80 offers advanced features like Electronic Air Suspension and Dynamic Digital Suspension. 

The Electronic Air Suspension enhances ride quality by automatically adjusting the vehicle's height, providing aerodynamic improvements at high speeds, and easing passenger entry and exit when parked. 

Meanwhile, the Dynamic Digital Suspension constantly monitors the vehicle's motion to ensure optimal damping force and controlled ride, even in rugged terrain. Enhancements to the QX80's ride and handling go beyond suspension systems.

With a frame boasting 58% greater lateral stiffness compared to its predecessor, the QX80 delivers enhanced stability and responsiveness on the road. Additionally, the adoption of an electric power steering rack significantly increases torsional stiffness, facilitating precise steering control and enabling advanced driver assistance features. 

Speaking of driver assistance, the 2025 QX80 comes standard with an extensive suite of advanced technologies, including ProPILOT Assist 2.1—an innovation making its debut in INFINITI models. This cutting-edge system empowers attentive drivers by allowing hands-off freeway driving in select scenarios.

At first glance, the QX80 commands attention with its anti-wedge profile, characterized by a long, nearly flat hood and crisp shoulder lines. These design elements enhance the vehicle's visual appeal and aerodynamic efficiency, creating a sense of sleek motion that defies its size.

The flush door handles seamlessly integrated into the body automatically materialize the moment you unlock the SUV. The flush door handles function as more than just a "wow" design element; it also contributes to the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance.

Inspired by the tranquil reflections of light upon water, this distinctive lighting element creates a mesmerizing visual effect with over 300 LEDs, complemented by a smoked finish and vibrant red illumination. In terms of color options, the all-new QX80 offers seven striking body paint colors to suit every taste. 

Among these options is the headlining color, Dynamic Metal—a new addition to the INFINITI lineup. Developed over six years, Dynamic Metal evokes a sense of liquid metal, accentuating the QX80's body surfaces with its smooth texture and dynamic hue.

"On the exterior, we held true to the provocative vision we established with the QX Monograph, and on the inside, we seamlessly integrated technology amongst the finest materials, to deliver a sense of extraordinary craftsmanship for all three rows."

With haptic feedback technology, users receive tactile confirmation when interacting with the touchscreen. What’s really great about this dedicated touchscreen is that climate controls remain readily accessible without intruding on other infotainment operations. 

The USB Type-C ports conveniently located throughout the cabin allow rapid charging capabilities for electronic devices. For added convenience on the go, the QX80 offers an available cool box in the center console, perfect for keeping beverages chilled during outdoor adventures or road trips.

Notably, the QX80 offers two levels of advanced driver assistance. ProPILOT Assist 1.1, standard across all trims, combines Intelligent Cruise Control with steering assistance to help drivers maintain their lane position and adjust vehicle speed proactively based on navigation data. 

This system enhances highway driving by providing seamless support through curves, interchanges, and various road conditions. 

Taking driver assistance to the next level, ProPILOT Assist 2.1 is optional on the two mid-trims and comes standard on the AUTOGRAPH trim. This advanced system allows hands-off driving in certain highway driving scenarios but requires the driver to remain attentive. 

Elevated Luxury: The 2025 INFINITI QX80 AUTOGRAPH


In pursuit of excellence, the 2025 INFINITI QX80 AUTOGRAPH sets a new standard for luxury SUVs with meticulous attention to detail and unparalleled craftsmanship. Cosmetically, the AUTOGRAPH grade stands out with a distinctive two-tone roof treatment, dark chrome trim, and exclusive Layered Turbine 22-inch wheels. 

Stepping inside the cabin, the AUTOGRAPH’s seating surfaces are made of semi-aniline leather, featuring a unique stitched finish effect showing off the expertise of skilled artisans. 

Inspired by design concepts explored in previous INFINITI concept vehicles, the dot-quilting elevates the overall aesthetic to new heights of luxury with the added texture and depth to the seats.

Complementing the AUTOGRAPH’s luxurious leather appointments are the open-pore ash wood trim pieces enhancing the interior ambiance. The laser-cut inlays, intricately integrated with ultra-thin aluminum accents, adorn the wood trim to create a visual masterpiece. 

As the spacing of the aluminum trim widens towards the front of the cabin, it captures the sense of space and width while maintaining a harmonious balance of design elements throughout.
