Nissan’s premium car brand Infiniti has teased the refreshed flagship SUV QX80 ahead of its debut on 154th November at the upcoming Dubai Moto Show. The third generation Infiniti QX80 is expected to come closely following the QX80 Monograph concept that was showcased at New York Motor Show. Expect the SUV to come with a stronger and more suave appearance.

It will have stronger road presence compared to the previous model. The 2018 Infiniti QX80 will be riding on the same platform as the second generation model. As the brand has teased the front profile, wheel and interior of the SUV, it shows sleek headlamps with LED projector lamp and integrated LED daytime running. A large muscular front grille with diamond pattern mesh and thick chrome detailing around it is there, while the horizontally positioned LED fog lamps come sitting at the deep blackened housing.

The new Infiniti QX80 will get more high-end features and advanced technologies inside the cabin. It receives premium quality leather treatment with quilted stitching on door trims.

This large premium SUV will draw energy from a big 5.6-litre V8 engine that is capable of churning out 400 hp of peak power and 413 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duty will be done by a 7-speed automatic gearbox. Expect a smaller turbocharged V6 engine to be introduced to this model at later stage.
