Concept vehicles don’t often make it to production unchanged, but the new Infiniti QX80 looks an awful lot like the QX Monograph concept the automaker showed late last year. The new SUV was recently revealed with boxier styling, more interior space, and an updated interior design with more tech and high-end materials.

Infiniti ditched the outgoing QX80’s V8 in favor of a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6. The new setup produces 450 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, and sends it to the rear or all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Optional air suspension can raise and lower the SUV by 1.2 inches on the highway to conserve fuel and up to 2.8 inches when parked for easier entry and exit.

The 2025 QX80 comes with dual 1.3-inch displays and a smaller third display for climate and other controls. It gets neat features like a new biometric cooling system that can detect when second-row passengers are feeling hot and direct air toward them. An available Klipsch reference Premiere stereo brings 24 speakers and 1,200 watts of power. Speakers in the front headrests let front passengers hear alerts from the navigation system or take a phone call without disturbing people in the back seats.

The new QX80 goes on sale this summer. Pricing for the Pure RWD trim starts at $84,445 after a surprisingly steep $1,995 destination charge. The Luxe RWD trim starts at $91,545, and adding four-wheel drive to either trim costs $3,100. Stepping up to the Sensory trim brings the price tag to $102,640, and the range-topping Autograph trim costs $112,590. The top two trims come standard with four-wheel drive.
