Though some accounts of the QX56′s initial launch may have included terms such as “troll” or “beached whale”, Infiniti has worked very hard to upgrade their flagship SUV to competitors’ standards. Though it’s never been a bad place to sit, the upgraded Nissan’s lines have been softened, color choices have been given an upgrade, and, thanks to revised lighting, the front end looks more reasonable when viewed straight on. Though it’s still no looker, and the weight still eclipses that of a Chevy Tahoe, Infiniti has done everything in their power to make it more palatable. The truck comes with the existing 5.6 liter port fuel injected V8 from the QX56 with a 7 speed automatic and, if you are so inclined, 7 additional people may ride along with you. If you’re interested in a chromed-out version of the QX56 with 14-spoke 22-inch rims and self-leveling suspension, you’ll have to wait until later this year to pick up the new QX80.
