The Infiniti QX80 is the Japanese luxury brand’s flagship SUV, based on the Nissan Armada. Although it’s often overlooked compared to its American rivals like the Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator, and Jeep Grand Wagoneer, it’s a premium SUV with the lowest starting price in its class, making it a good value in full-size luxury SUVs.

The Infiniti QX80 has three distinct trims, all reasonably priced compared to their rivals. Let’s look at the cost of the Infiniti QX80 and what you can expect to pay for a fully loaded build.

The entry-level 2024 Infiniti QX80 Luxe

The 2024 Inifiniti QX80 has a starting MSRP of $74,150. That gets you the base Luxe trim. Like every QX80, it’s powered by a 5.6-liter V8 engine, rated at 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. Output is sent to the rear or all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission.

The Luxe trim is a well-equipped SUV for the money. Standard features include 20-inch wheels, a power sunroof, three-row leather seating with second-row captain’s chairs, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure prevention, and blind-spot intervention.

Additionally, the standard Infiniti InToch infotainment system has a 12.3-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, wireless Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, and a rich Bose premium audio system.

Upgrading to the Premium Select trim starts at $78,300. This midrange trim includes an appearance package with dark chrome accents, including 22-inch wheels. It also adds Matte Mocha Burl interior trim and two interior color options: Sahara Stone and Truffle Brown.

Adding 4WD costs an extra $3,150 for the Luxe trim and $3,100 for the Premium Select trim.

What’s included in the 2024 Infiniti QX80 Sensory 4WD?

The top Sensory trim of the 2024 Inifiniti QX80 starts at $85,350, but a 4WD-equipped example begins at $88,450. Luxurious features you get in the top trim include semi-aniline leather seats with quilting, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row outboard seats, a black tricot headliner, Charcoal Burl interior trim, an upgraded Bose Performance Series 17-speaker audio system, an advanced climate control system with auto recirculation and Plasmacluster technology, second-row footwell courtesy lights, an adaptive front lighting system with auto-leveling headlights, chrome mirror caps, a Hydraulic Body Motion Control system, vehicle speed-sensitive power steering, and remote tip-up second-row seats. 

Infiniti also offers a Dark Chrome Appearance Package ($750) that borrows styling elements from the Premium Select trim. A bench second-row seat is another no-cost option. The only factory option for the QX80 is premium paint ($695).

The cost of a fully loaded Infiniti QX80 comes to $91,790. That includes 4WD, premium paint, the Dark Chrome Appearance Package, and the $1,895 destination fee that applies to all QX80 models.

Is the QX80 large luxury SUV a good value?

A fully loaded 2024 Infiniti QX80 coming to the low $90k range isn’t cheap, but it’s a good value in its class. That’s cheaper than the mid-range Reserve trim of the Lincoln Navigator, it’s more affordable than most of the trims available for the Cadillac Escalade, and it’s priced lower than the starting price of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

However, with generally middling reviews from auto reviewers and publications, such as Car and Driver, many drivers might find it worth shelling out a few thousand dollars more for a higher-quality model. After all, if your finances are good enough to afford a vehicle priced above $70,000, what’s a bit more to get the absolute best quality product on the market?
