2021 INFINITI QX80 vs. Its Competition

2021 Infiniti QX80
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

If you like the QX80, consider saving a bundle with the nearly identical Nissan Armada.

The freshly redesigned Cadillac Escalade now sets the pace for big truck-based SUVs, though the Lincoln Navigator is still a solid choice.

The Escalade’s slightly less-tony GMC Yukon sibling almost feels like a good value, too.

Our favorite big SUV is the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, though you’ll pay considerably for the privilege.
