Default Infiniti QX80 Monograph Concept

No need to guess as to what this previews...

So now Infiniti is also creating models that look virtually identical to their predecessors?

Clearly it previews the next supercar.

On a serious note, it doesn't look bad, seems like it is trying to mimic some range rover vibes, doubt it will sell much outside the US.

The current one already doesn't sell well in the U.S. (AFAIK), so I'm thinking it ain't gonna sell anywhere, unfortunately....

The US does too, but Japanese simply do not know how to crack the formula here.

Or full sized trucks for that matter.

And while ford owns the full sized truck market, GM has the Full sized SUV market locked down tight.

Its all about the small block V8.

The GM large SUVs are simply better indeed. The current Ford Expedition owes much of its structure to the 1997 originator. Aside from bolting in IRS and some minor restyling, most of the truck is 20 years old and it shows.

I think the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Lexus equivalent do decently here. I imagine that all the cars in this class (regardless of origin) do their intended job very well, so heritage (which the Land Cruiser has in spades and which the rest of the Japanese models do not) + brand loyalty I assume are a big part of why Japanese full-sized trucks/SUVs do not do well here.
