My thoughts exactly. Plus anything is better than that jigsaw puzzle they currently sell.

It's certainly not the best looking SUV I have seen, but it does have it's charm and the front looks great. The side vents are useless and look like a after thought. I like the rear end of the Patrol better than this QX mainly because the tail-lamp of the Patrol look more upmarket.

The more I'm looking at the new-generation Infiniti QX56, I'm liking this more and more; it's far more sophisticated, smoother, nicer proportions and more integrated than the predecessor, and a greater, more powerful (and economical) 400HP 5.6L V8. The build-quality appears superior to the outgoing model, too.

I'm wondering what the dimensions and specs are of the new-generation Infiniti QX56 are? One report says that it's bigger and brawnier than the outgoing model.

Since this doesn't deserve a new thread as an all-new model (so clearly a facelift), would mods mind updating the title to QX80? I'm not even bothering to post an interior pic...because guess what? It's basically exactly the same.

In sum, after 8 years Infiniti moved the headlights a little higher and split the rear hatch with a metal bar. Such hard work.

Looks better (let's face it, anything would), but far from great. And couldn't they be bothered putting some decent wheels on it?

The discounts on these must be staggering because I cannot imagine any compelling reason to buy one. The segment is an important one, but Nissan's philosophy seems to be to have a presence and let it go at that.

if you want a more agile escalade, you buy this. that's all i can think of. I've also found the packaging to be better in this than the Escalade, especially in terms of second row space.

Then you factor in all the negatives of it being a Nissan and you walk away.

Escalade has that market locked down air tight. Thick margins from sharing most of it's underpinnings and visible exterior with the lower end Chevrolet and GMC means funds to build sedans that, unfortunately, dont sell well .
