2008 Infiniti QX56 Review

This review was written when the 2008 Infiniti QX56 was new.

The QX56 delivers strong V8 power and a spacious and comfortable interior, but receives some criticism for its awkward exterior styling and some down-market cabin fittings.

The 2008 Infiniti QX56 is, according to our analysis, an unremarkable-looking SUV that offers comfortable seating for seven or eight and a powerful, refined ride. Despite its somewhat bland exterior, reviews are positve on the QX56's performance and reliability.  As sales of large SUVs continue to slide, buyers should be in a strong bargaining position.  However, the QX56 has pretty bad gas mileage, even for a large SUV, so anything saved of the sticker price will likely be spent at the gas station. 

  • "Instead of heavy breathing and hey-lookit-me decoration, the Infiniti delivers impeccable manners behind a forgettable face." Car and Driver
  • "The 2008 model year marks a redesign for the full-size Infiniti QX56, with new exterior features, interior enhancements and a range of new standard amenities and technology." Road and Track
  • The QX56 "might be the most luxurious, comfortable and stylish SUV on the road today." Forbes
