Infiniti and Lexus have at loggerheads ever since arrived in the U.S. in 1989. were—and still are—the member of their parent Nissan and Toyota. But from the beginning, Infiniti and Lexus indirectly, in the same class but to a kind of customer with a kind of car. The Lexus for example, mimicked more the solid and quiet, while the Q45 had a sportier, more BMW-like Both chased the luxury but in different ways.

So it continues for even with full-size sport utilities. This pairs off the Infiniti QX80 QX56, see name conversion ) the LX570. The QX80 doesn’t any particular meaning, other that it’s than Q is used for all Infinitis and X for crossovers and and the 80, well, it’s the biggest Infiniti uses.

For the Lexus, we presume that the L large. The X is similar to that of The 570 represents the size of the 5.7-liter In displacement, it’s slightly than the Infiniti’s 5.6-liters.

The big are there for more than or bragging rights. The Infiniti and have similar output, 400 versus 373 horses respectively, and edging Lexus again in 413 lb-ft against 403 lb-ft. engines are powerful, each a traditional V-8 roar, but we’d to have the Infiniti engine in a performance sports car, it so good.

In part the big engines are there to the immense body-on-frame sport They’re both two-and-a-half ton and if the QX80 impresses with its as well it should. It’s a foot longer, more two inches wider and more two inches taller. Those are the numbers. We didn’t measure height, but by design—the Infiniti’s fenders towering over the by the actual distance from the the QX80 definitely impresses

Both can seat up to eight, the Infiniti QX80 comes middle row captain’s chairs with a three-place bench while the Lexus LX570 has a bench standard with the two seats as an option.

While both vehicles power-folding third row seats to a flat load floor, the Lexus powers the second row to make more legroom for the row, at some inconvenience to in row number two. As one might accommodations for both are first up front, business class in the (both models heat the row) and coach in back.

a real difference in personality and capabilities, with the Infiniti favoring highway use while the LX570 goes all-out for While both vehicles a low-range center differential, the not only can raise for extra clearance but also has a “Multi-Terrain system lets the driver the type of terrain—rock, rock mogul, loose rock, or mud –to optimize Active Traction The latter is essentially an electronic-controlled mode, cruise control for the woods. The driver can select five speeds, roughly one to five miles per hour, and the will maintain that while driving over and logs and such, whether up or hills. It makes a rather chattering as the anti-lock braking combines with the throttle to maintain the constant speed Some find it to be fingernails on the annoying, but it works.

The Infiniti QX80, however, has a kind of adaptable suspension. The Body Motion Control” available on both 2WD and 4WD models as of the optional Deluxe Touring suspension travel is controlled “by hydraulic chambers integrated each shock absorber.  The are cross-linked with piping, for the transfer of hydraulic fluid, seamlessly by nitrogen-charged accumulators, one side of the vehicle to the other.” The is flatter cornering, with lean.

The Infiniti QX80 is a more tow vehicle as well, rated at lbs, compared the mere lbs of the Lexus LX570. Not many will approach those towing a horse or race car might come near— but good to know they’re as as they are if they do.
