It's a little less tech-frenzied than crossovers like the Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Ford Flex, but the Infiniti QX56 has its own vast array of electronica and infotainment hardware that befits a sport-ute of its size and price class.
Each QX has a raft of standard luxury and convenience features, including the requisite power locks, windows, and mirrors; sunroof; leather upholstery; AM/FM/CD/DVD player with satellite radio, Bluetooth with audio streaming, and USB connectivity; a moonroof; a navigation with a hard drive for map and music storage; and 20-inch wheels.
For the 2013 model year, it also adds standard auto-dimming side rearview mirrors, and cross-traffic alerts to its 360-degree exterior camera.
Option packages add on more upscale features, the kind you'll also find in the Escalade and Range Rover. A hydraulic suspension is available; so are ventilated front seats, and heated second-row seats; 22-inch wheels; and easy-folding second-row seats for access to the third row.
A Technology Package groups features like blind-spot monitors with adaptive headlights, and a three-zone automatic climate control system. There's also a Theater Package, which includes dual LCD displays for the back seat, alone with remote controls, wireless headphones, and auxiliary inputs for gaming systems. It gets a new remote control and a new user interface this year.Lastly, you can opt to swap the second-row chairs for a three-seat bench at no cost. Savor the second-row seats and the huge console before deciding you’ll need the extra seat more.
