The 2018 Infiniti QX80 Monograph Concept, which looks production-ready, debuted at the 2017 New York Auto Show. Andre interviewed Randy Parker, Vice President for Infiniti America who took him through the design of the 2018 Infiniti QX80 Monograph Concept.
Currently, Infiniti sells 1,100 to 1,500 QX80s per month.
It will have a GVWR of 8,500 lbs (or more). We don’t know for sure as Infiniti calls this vehicle a “design study.” Basically, it’s a one-off that is being used to measure consumer interest. Very little – if any – technical information was available regarding the 2018 Infiniti QX80 Monograph Concept; however, we do know that the new model will be available at the end of the 2017 calendar year.
It looks like it carries the design language of Infiniti to another level.
Considering Nissan’s all new, well regarded 5.6-liter V8 that was recently used in the Nissan Titan and current Infiniti QX80 is new tech, it might be used in the new model.
While there is little to go on, it’s safe to say, Andre liked what he saw. Check out this brief design tour.
It would be interesting to see how this vehicle competes with the 2018 Lincoln Navigator. You can read about that vehicle (here).
