2022 Infiniti QX80 Gets New Infotainment System
A Bose premium sound system and Intelligent Cruise Control have also been added to the QX80.
The current generation Infiniti QX80 is seriously long in the tooth now, having been on the market since 2010. It has had a couple of updates, including a new name, since, but it is relatively the same gargantuan SUV that made its debut more than a decade ago.
In an effort to keep things up-to-date, Infiniti is giving the QX80 a minor interior update for the 2022 model year. The change is pretty obvious – now there’s a new 12.3-inch display on top of the dashboard that supports wireless Apple CarPlay, USB-based Android Auto, navigation with lane guidance as well as the brand’s InTouch Services. It is equipped as standard on all variants.
Located just below the repositioned air-cond vents is a newly designed centre stack that houses new dials and buttons for the climate control system and a wireless smartphone charger. A Bose premium sound system and Intelligent Cruise Control have also been added.
The exterior stays unchanged, so does the naturally-aspirated 5.6-litre V8 mill, which still makes 400 hp and 560 Nm of torque. A seven-speed automatic is the only transmission offered but customers get to choose either rear-wheel drive or Infiniti’s All-Mode Four-Wheel Drive.
Today INFINITI gathered its growing field of new SUVs, including the new 2022 INFINITI QX80, all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60, and recently released 2022 QX55, in New York City with a one-of-a-kind public art installation from acclaimed artist Daniel Wurtzel.
“The new 2022 INFINITI QX80 combines modern luxury paired with exceptional strength,” said INFINITI Americas Group Vice President Jeff Pope. “Alongside the all-new 2022 QX60 that represents the new, forward direction for INFINITI, our SUV lineup is stronger, more advanced, and more intuitive than ever.”
The new three-row SUVs for 2022 — both QX80 and QX60 — complement the bold INFINITI utility-vehicle lineup that includes the award-winning QX50 and stunning QX55.
The new 2022 QX80 has been significantly enhanced with a widescreen, high-definition 12.3-inch INFINITI InTouch display that includes wireless Apple CarPlay and USB-based Android Auto compatibility. Standard on all grades, the new display includes navigation with lane guidance and INFINITI’s InTouch Services. Leather-appointed seats in three rows, heated front seats and second-row captain’s chairs are standard. An all-new wireless smartphone charger is included along with a Bose Premium Sound system and Intelligent Cruise Control to support the driver.
At its heart, the new QX80 is powered by INFINITI’s 5.6-liter V-8 that makes 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission. Equipped with rear-wheel drive as standard, or available with INFINITI All-Mode Four-Wheel Drive, the new 2022 QX80 is as capable and comfortable as ever.
