The steady stream of teasers for the 2025 Infiniti QX80 continues apace, and it appears your author has drawn the straw to act as yer guide in this matter until the thing actually drops later this month.

This time around, the brand is teasing photos and details about the machine’s audio system. Branded by a company called Klipsch, which has apparently been making swanky home stereo and theater systems since 1946, there will be no fewer than two dozen speakers in some configurations. Boasting 1,200 watt of power, which is more than Aerosmith these days, Infiniti is promising three-dimensional immersive sound thanks to a quartet of speakers in the headliner plus a few integrated right into the headrests. This seemingly helps permit the system to direct audio for calls and nav at the driver, reducing distraction around the cabin.

Elsewhere in the SUV, so-called biometric technology will use an infrared sensor to detect when a passenger is hot. The premise is the ventilation system can use this information to quickly adjust temperature and air flow, send cool air to second row passengers if it thinks they are hot, for example. Left unmentioned is what happens if a second-row passenger is simply upset the driver won’t turn that dandy new Klipsch audio system to their favorite SiriusXM channel. Both the first and second rows of chairs will feature massaging seats, by the way. Third-row peanut gallery denizens will get heated surfaces in some trims.

Last year, Infiniti sold a total of 64,699 vehicles in this country. The massive QX80 comprised 12,696 of those sales, easily making it the brand’s second-best selling nameplate behind the QX60 which found 29,383 homes during an equal time frame.

According to the company, we should expect the 2025 Infiniti QX80 to be revealed in a livestreamed event on March 20, starting at 7 p.m. EDT.
