The new QX80 will closely mirror the Monograph concept.Infiniti has announced that it will unveil a new version of its QX80 flagship SUV at the upcoming Dubai International Motor Show.Infiniti is keeping tight-lipped about its new QX80, so we're unsure at this point if the model destined for Dubai will be an all-new model or simply a revised version of the current SUV. Whatever the case, the new QX80 will arrive with fresh styling that'll bring it closer in line with the rest of Infiniti's product offerings.
"Infiniti's design DNA has been scaled up for our largest SUV," said Alfonso Albaisa, Senior Vice President, Global Design. "The QX80 brings a new commanding presence with powerful muscularity and enhanced horizontal movement. Our designers raised the visual height of our iconic double arch grille and signature headlamps striking an unmistakable road presence."
Overall, it looks as though the new QX80 will closely follow the design language for the QX80 Monograph concept that debuted earlier this year at the New York auto show. That vehicle featured a front fascia similar to that of the vehicle Infiniti teases today. The Monograph concept also included a stylized rear end with thin LED taillights and a pronounced hump in its tailgate.
The current QX80 debuted for the 2011 model year as the QX56. The SUV was renamed QX80 for 2014 and was also treated to a styling updated. The Infiniti QX80 rides on the same architecture as the Nissan Armada.
Infiniti will lift the veil on its new QX80 on November 14.
