For 2014, the QX80 badge replaces the QX56 nameplate, but the vehicle, a full-size luxury SUV, is essentially the same. It only adds confusion to a vehicle that's already confusingly good on many fronts; there's a lot to appreciate, badging aside. The QX80 is the best Infiniti SUV to date–and superior to at least a few of its competitors. At the same time, it's also a gas-guzzler without an alternative drivetrain in sight, though it's built in Japan by the company responsible for pioneering the first mass-market electric car, ever.

The QX80 isn't quite the tech orgy you’ll find inside a Lincoln MKT or a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, but Infiniti's big SUV does come standard with the usual power features; navigation with a hard drive for maps and music; DVD audio and satellite radio; 20-inch wheels; a moonroof; a power tailgate; Bluetooth with audio streaming; pushbutton start; USB connectivity for audio players; and leather trim. This year, a backup collision intervention system also makes its way to the technology package. At a base price of just about $61,000, its chief competition lies in the GL-Class and Navigator, while the much more pricey Range Rover and Escalade are thousands more--and they don't include the sublime Infiniti ownership experience.

The QX's independent suspension does a fine job of controlling its ride quality, even up to the 22-inch wheels that are available on the most expensive versions. There’s an automatic leveling setup on the rear end for towing duty (the QX will drag 8,500 pounds behind it), as well as available Hydraulic Body Motion Control, which uses a closed air-pressure loop to damp out body lean in tight corners. It's slightly different in feel, but to our wallets, not distinctly more comfortable, and not worth the thousands of extra dollars. The QX's steering feel is light--maybe too much so for our tastes--but its brakes are big and powerful.
