2019 Infiniti QX80 Limited Is Priciest Yet At Over $90k

Full-size luxury SUVs keep getting pricier, and Infiniti is getting in on the action with the introduction of the QX80 Limited. The top-of-the-line trim is new for 2019, and its pricing just released places it not only as the most expensive model Infiniti offers, but likely its most expensive ever.

Where the base QX80 Luxe starts at $65,100, the new Limited model carries a handsome price tag of $89,800. Factor in the mandatory $1,295 destination charge, as CarsDirect points out, and you’re looking at a massive $91,095.

That’s considerably more than the $67,600 commanded by the top-spec Q70L sedan. Even the Q45 – Infiniti’s last full-size luxury sedan – carried a base price barely more than $56,000 when it was last offered over a decade ago, which would translate to less than $80k in today’s money.

The big sticker further propels the recently updated QX80 into heady competition with the likes of the Lexus LX570, Lincoln Navigator, and Cadillac Escalade among the most luxurious, full-size, truck-based sport-utility vehicles on the market.

Based on the Nissan Armada, Infiniti’s flagship first launched in 2004 as the QX56. The current, second-generation model arrived in 2010, and was rebadged in 2013 as the QX80 in line with a reconfigured brand nomenclature. It stretches nearly 5.3 meters (or over 17 feet) long and weighs over 6,000 pounds) (2,785 kg), making it one of the biggest, heaviest vehicles on the road.

The Limited model loads it up with even more luxurious equipment, including 22-inch wheels, satin chrome trim, two-tone semi-aniline leather and Alcantara upholstery, matte silver open-pore wood, and a unique Anthracite Gray paint option (among 10 exterior finishes available). It also includes just about every option available on the QX80 – including items fro the ProASSIST, ProACTIVE, Theater, and Sensory packages available on the base version. So there’s little left to be wanted on the top model and few options, but you pay dearly for all the equipment.

    Or you can get an infinit-ly better XC90 or Q7 fully loaded for $20k less.

    • Belthronding

      i ll take xc90 any way,keep fugly q7 away 🙂
      btw qx80 is completely good suv and i like it inside and out, but not that much (91k ???)

      • Honda NSX-R

        I would just get the Nissan Armada, it’s nearly the same truck as the QX80 but cheaper

        • Andrewthecarguy

          Nearly?
          It’s the same.

          • Honda NSX-R

            Except the exterior design but yeah it is the same

      • OneOfOne

        you cant afford any of them. shut up

  • Jay

    Pretty nice looking.. interior looks dated though, and shame no more clear tail lights

    • I know right?

      I would have thought updating the infortainment system would be justified considering they are taking longer to replace the cars (a good thing).

      I can forgive the slow downshifts on my FX50, I can live with the not so efficient engine as a trade-off for V8 purity, the infortainment system though is a sore point.

      • Jay

        Exactly, this model is on its third or forward facelift with the same dash layout. The system it self is probably the same other than an updated DVD for Nav and you can say that again my average is 11.5 mpg 😂.

        Out of curiosity do you have Bluetooth connectivity issues such as static during calls and music playback?

        • Yep, but I must say they type of phone you use makes a difference. My previous phones were more of a nighmnnig to connect with issues like;
          – Long connectivity times,
          – Disconnection,
          – Couldn’t even find the Bluetooth screen at times

          Since I upgraded to a 2017 phone (OnePlus 5t) the issues have been less. They are still there, just almost bearable.

          Given the option I’d take a tech upgrade over efficiency, that’s how bad it it.

  • Able

    I’ve spent a lot of time in QX80s and while they have their good points – the extremely dated infotainment set-up is not one of them. That interior colour scheme is just awful as well.

  • dumblikeyou2

    That interior looks like a Russian aftermarket special for an oligarch.

    • Andrewthecarguy

      That’s what they were going for.
      Modern lux is available in the lower spec models, and Hyndai + KIA have decided to mess that up for everybody. #diamondquilting = luxury

      • PK

        don’t you think hyundai/kia aren’t the only ones to blame. how about toyota, honda, nissan, ford and etc…. don’t put too much blame on the korean automobiles. it’s not fair to them.

  • Honda NSX-R

    As an Infiniti owner, even I wouldn’t pay that much for the QX80. I would just get the Navigator instead at that price point, or I would just save some money and get an Armada or Ford Expedition

  • cbATL

    Vulgar

  • Bash

    Not impressed tbh.

  • Skye

    In Europe it will be almost double the price

  • Skye

    Fake price for a fake car. There’s a chair for every azz.

  • Enter Ranting

    Hideous.

  • Liam Paul

    I like 90% of the outside, the chrome and dark black look really looks great on this suv but the inside, its way too busy. Too many different themes going on in there, I think just black plush leather would had gone better with some chrome accents inside

  • nellydesign

    The interior design here looks about 10 years old. That massive center stack with tiny screen, blocks of buttons, tiny knobs, and huge empty spaces just looks completely outclassed by the competition.

    • Galaxium

      Indeed. Infiniti interiors consistently disappoint me. The 2006-2015 interiors were particularly atrocious because every interior design was bizarre, cheap, and bulbous-looking.

  • Matthew Boyd

    That infotainment system is not that different from the 05′ Infiniti FX45 I had. Some things never change, but prices do.

  • Andrewthecarguy

    Affordability is subjective.
    I did not think the mild refresh of a 16 year old vehicle would soldieron, but they are VERY popular in some areas…you need size and the semblance of luxury and these things provide the necessary visual effect.

  • botornot387

    This car needs a redesign and new tech badly. That Nissan system has been around since the last decade. At 91K, you’re dreaming. So many better options at that price.

  • Matt

    Would definitely not sell in Europe (maybe Russia).

  • An Existing Person

    For all the hate this is getting on here, Infiniti must be doing something right because I see a bunch of the new and old ones on the road everywhere I go. Despite it having a dated interior, it really doesn’t look bad and the quality is top notch. It really is a viable option in its class if you can look past some minor faults.

  • :/ Yurr

    Infiniti needs to be overhauled.

  • Joe E

    The interior in those pics is the equivalent of the most blinged-out Ed Hardy shirt every to grace the Jersey Shore…in 2007.

  • brn

    People often buy what they cannot afford.

  • Leconte Dave

    Refresh

  • TheBelltower

    Junk. Infiniti is the new Pontiac. This is a monstrosity.

  • Nordschleife

    If the Mazda 6 got a new interior at 25k this damn sure could get one ag more than triple that.

  • OneOfOne

    dumbass people who tow boats buy them and broke ass scrubs buy them used to project something other than scrub status.
