    Infiniti QX80 Monograph concept

    Infiniti is set to unveil the QX80 Monograph concept SUV on the eve of the 2017 New York Auto Show (Apr 11th, 2017 at 5:30pm EST). TFLtruck will be in New York City for the show to bring you all the latest news. The Monograph concept is Infiniti’s vision for the luxury SUVs of the future. It applies the latest design language to its largest and most luxurious SUV.

    Why the Monograph name? Infiniti says it is a “detailed study of a single area of expertise”. The area of expertise they are referring to in this case is the exterior design. This concept is the work of Infiniti designers from Atsugi, Japan studio.

    What do you think? Do you like where Infiniti is taking its biggest and truckiest SUV?  Let us know your comments and questions below. Keep in mind, this is an exterior design study, so information about the power plant and interior will likely not be answered. Still, if you add your questions in the comments section below, we will ask the Infiniti team and try to get as much information as possible.

    Stay tuned for much more from the 2017 New York Auto Show.

    In the meantime, check out the current Infiniti QX80 tackling the Gold Mine Hill off-road trail high in the Rocky Mountains.

    1. Yeah, tell them to make it plain and save the money to make their vehicles reliable. It may not be what they want to hear, but it may be what they need to hear.

      1. Good point. At the moment, the Titan has the best warranty for light trucks. If there’s parts sharing, then perhaps it’ll also have the 5yr/100K bumper-to-bumper warranty.

    2. It looks a lot like the present qx80 only with an even uglier front grill and headlight design. Sorry, I just don’t like it much on the outside. Maybe the interior design and mechanically it will be a winner. We’ll see!

    3. Finally a masculine looking QX80, this vehicle already has the right underpinnings from the Nissan Partol, so it will obviously be mechanically sound. I am glad that the weird bulbous look is now gone!! I hope the rear looks just as good, and I hope the tail pipes are not hidden.

    4. Not exactly a beauty. It will offer as power plants: Infiniti SUV is thought to employ a new plug-in hybrid powertrain likely to be based on a new twin-turbocharged petrol V6.
      QX80 will also offer a Infiniti V8 petrol engine, and a diesel( Not in NA)

      1. Nothing I’ve read indicates that any Y62 group vehicles are getting a diesel- any speculation of the Cummins V8 if way in the weeds.

        1. @Mr Knowitall,
          Compared to the Landcruiser, the Q80 barely sells because of it’s lack of a diesel outside NA.
          Some non NA information.
          “The current QX80 is one of the largest passenger cars on sale in the Australian market as well as heaviest at 2837kg. It is powered by a 298kW/560Nm 5.6-litre V8 tied to a seven-speed automatic, with all-wheel drive.

          It is unknown at this stage if Infiniti will continue with this powertrain or consider another such as a twin-turbo V6, or the Cummins 5.0L seen in the US-market Nissan Titan XD. The Cummins diesel makes 231kW and 766Nm – we think it would be a supreme candidate for both the QX80 and Nissan Patrol but there’s nothing to suggest it at this stage. A weight reduction strategy would be a logical assumption too.”

          1. “Under the bonnet, the big Infiniti SUV is thought to come with a new plug-in hybrid powertrain that could be based around a new twin-turbo petrol V6.

            A traditional petrol V8 and, this time round, diesel power are also expected.”

    5. I would say it might be aggressive looking with big gaping hole to catch all the bugs.
      It is like everything else. If you are there to look at it might not be to bad looking , but looking at the picture of it don’t look impressive.

    6. Cut back off and make an open box in the back and raise the body a bit and it would be a real classy pick up.

    7. I like the look of the QX80 Concept…..and like most if not all CONCEPTS, the look will be abandoned for a more simple and less expensive to build production vehicle.
      Overall, I prefer the look of the QX30 and find it far more attractive sexy and curvy.

    8. I like it.

      Sure the concept design has some over the top elements to it, that I don’t particularly care for, but I am betting those same over the top design cues get toned down a bit when it actually becomes a production model.

      I really like the more masculine look to their new design concept. I always loved the ride and drive of the current version, just hated the odd front end styling.

    9. There was about as much excitement in that Press brief as a family vacation to west Nebraska. Neat. 😐
