The All-New Infiniti QX56

With the introduction of the all-new second generation QX, Infiniti believes there still a market of full-size luxury SUVs.? Designed to carry eight adults and their belongings in luxury or tow up to 8,500 pounds the QX has the appointments similar to those found in the an opulent business jet.

New technology includes a new Hydraulic Body Motion Control system as part of the Deluxe Touring Package.? The system helps reduce body lean by using hydraulic cylinders to adjust roll stiffness by transferring fluid between the left and right sides of the vehicle through passive weight transfer.

The second-generation Infiniti QX has been totally redesigned from the platform up. Its new high-stiffness frame structure enhances ride comfort while reducing noise, vibration and harshness. The new 400-hp, 5.6-liter V-8 engine with Variable Valve Event & Lift, Direct Injection Gasoline and 7-speed automatic transmission gets about 10 percent better fuel economy.

Available in two models, the 2011 QX56 2WD and QX56 4WD, it is scheduled to go on sale at Infiniti retailers nationwide in summer 2010.
