The all-new 2025 INFINITI QX80 resets the full-size luxury SUV segment benchmark. It brings together understated yet detailed style, intelligently integrated technology and a commanding, effortless driving experience. As the flagship of the lineup and first new model in INFINITI's product renaissance, the all-new QX80 delivers extraordinary comfort, convenience and technology for all three rows.

 
 

QX80 makes its public debut at the 2024 New York International Auto Show and goes on sale in the U.S. later this summer.

"We went all out with the all-new QX80 to deliver an extraordinary vehicle that speaks to the bright new chapter for our brand," said Jose Roman, senior vice president, global head of INFINITI and senior vice president, Global Sales, Nissan Motor Co. "It's without a doubt, the most advanced product INFINITI has ever offered, and we're confident it sets a new benchmark in the full-size luxury segment."

 
 

The all-new 2025 INFINITI QX80 is the first model to showcase the latest evolution of INFINITI design, building on long-standing expertise in craftsmanship and detailing.

"The all-new QX80 is the first production model to be born under our evolved design language, Artistry in Motion," said Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president for Global Design. "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."

QX80 has a bold and confident posture, with strong lines and well-defined proportions. An anti-wedge profile, with a long, nearly flat hood leading into crisp shoulder lines, helps project a sense of sho – a sleek sense of speed, dynamism and motion – that belies the vehicle's size.

In front, QX80 wears the newest iteration of the signature INFINITI double-arch grille. Inspired by the organic shapes of a bamboo forest, the grille shape hints at a powerful, commanding driving experience.

 
 

Designers precisely positioned lighting elements to define a strong face for QX80. Narrow, multi-element "Digital piano key' LED Daytime Running Lights at either side of the upper grille complement the illuminated INFINITI emblem – which now has a more three-dimensional appearance. Lower in the front fascia are the vehicle's combination lamps, along with discreet air curtain vents that help aerodynamically optimize air flow around the wheel wells.

 
 

The sleek, minimalist design theme is especially evident in profile. Flush door handles, which automatically present themselves when the vehicle is unlocked, result in a cleaner, tidier appearance and contribute to improvements in QX80's aerodynamic performance. Two harmonious character lines – one from the headlamps through the shoulder line, below the windows; the second, tracing from the front bumper to the creases in the lower doors – add character. Blacked-out door pillars contribute to a sleeker appearance for the upper body.

In the rear, a full-width LED lighting element draws the eye. Its segmented design recalls the appearance of the grille and DRLs while its curved profile was inspired by the tranquil reflections of light upon a body of water. Featuring over 300 LEDs, the lamps have a smoked finish and illuminate in a vibrant shade of red, with a pronounced upper section accompanied by a series of horizontal light bars below.

 
 

The all-new QX80 offers seven striking body paint colors, headlined by a new INFINITI color called Dynamic Metal. In development for more than six years, it was designed to provide a liquid metal feel that emphasizes the QX80's body surfaces. Thanks in part to a precise process that ensures metallic flakes lay flat in the paint, the result is a smooth texture and a hue that dramatically changes based on viewing angle.

The interior of the all-new QX80 is heavily inspired by Japanese culture and the principle of miyabi. Derived from Kyoto artisan culture, it references the use of layered, soft materials and gorgeous, flowing integration of technology and extraordinarily high-quality materials. Soft-touch materials abound, with particular attention paid to layering them over any hard parts where passengers' arms or elbows may rest upon them. Additionally, elements like leather appointments, wood trims, suede and metal seamlessly incorporate high-tech items like touchscreens.

 
 

QX80's dashboard concept uses two 14.3-inch displays. Ahead of the driver is a configurable meter with three views – Classic, Elegant and Enhanced – that can be operated by way of an ergonomically positioned jog wheel on the right of the steering wheel. That jog wheel can also operate the center INFINITI InTouch® display, or occupants can simply touch, tap and swipe, like on a tablet.

For the first time, QX80 also offers an available color head-up display7 to help keep key information in the driver's eyeline.

Delivering on the INFINITI promise to incorporate powerful technology that enables a more connected and convenient drive, the center display comes with Google built-in5. Always-updated Google Maps allow for simple and efficient navigation, while users can download many of their other favorite apps on Google Play8. Google Assistant further makes everyday interactions easier and safer, allowing for natural-language requests like, "Hey Google, navigate to my nearest INFINITI retailer."

 
 

A separate, 9-inch touchscreen mounted below the infotainment display provides convenient control of all climate functions, as well as front seat heating or cooling operations and selection of QX80's drive modes. The screen uses haptic feedback to help users "feel" when they have selected the appropriate on-screen element. Because these functions are housed on their own touchscreen, they never intrude into infotainment operations like navigation or music displays, nor are the controls ever hidden under other menus. Helping free up valuable space for cupholders and storage, QX80 uses sleek push buttons to shift its transmission.

An inviting space is created with striking lines that run across the passenger side of the dashboard and an illuminated INFINITI emblem. Lighting can also help set the mood with 64-color Personalized Ambient Lighting, incorporated within the dashboard and doors.

USB Type-C ports are available in every row with a total of eight throughout the cabin, featuring up to 15-watt/3.0-amp power ratings for rapidly charging devices.

 
 

An available cool box in the center console, when activated, directs air-conditioned air into the compartment to help chill the contents.,

As the flagship SUV in the INFINITI range, the all-new 2025 QX80 delivers confident, capable performance balanced with refinement. All models feature a standard VR35DDTT 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged engine, rated for 450 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque – increases of 50 horsepower and 103 lb-ft versus the outgoing QX80. Electronically controlled variable valve timing on the intake contributes to crisp throttle response.

"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, Global Product Strategy and Product Planning. "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."

 
 

Complementing the new engine is a 9-speed automatic transmission with a 40% wider gear ratio range, allowing for both responsive acceleration and efficient highway cruising.

The all-new 2025 INFINITI QX80 will reach retailers in the U.S. later this summer.
