Expert Quotes:

Infiniti has thoughtfully added a power recline function to the final row, and it really helps livability.
Car and Driver

Around View Monitor…uses a total of five cameras to help you figure out exactly where the QX56 is in relation to objects around it….It makes short work of parking lots, detritus-laden garages and towing a trailer in tight spaces.

The comically big second-row console…is so big, in fact, that an ill-behaved child of a QX56 owner could be stuffed into it, not that we recommend that usage. There aren't any seatbelts in there, after all.

That $2850 Tech Package is of more dubious use, because it gives the driver more opportunity to be more passive about his driving.
Motor Trend

A fully equipped 4WD 2011 Infiniti QX56 will land you at $71,850, which is an awful lot of money, but a bit less than what you'd pay for an Escalade or a Mercedes-Benz GL450 (the QX's No. 3 rival).
Inside Line

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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
