2022 INFINITI QX80 vs. Its Competition

2022 Infiniti QX80
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The QX80 sports strong V-8 power, high tow ratings, a plush interior, and a long warranty.

If you like it, 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 with its big touchscreens and, especially, its Black Label interior themes.

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.
