The 2011 Infiniti QX56 is all set to be showcased in the 2011 Chicago Auto Show beginning next month. Although the car was already displayed in the last year’s New York Auto Show, the new 2011, QX56 is longer, wider, and lower than the model that was displayed last year. The vehicle is a 4-door, up to 8-passenger luxury sport-utility which is available in two variants, the 2WD and the 4WD.
The two variants are basically equipped with a standard 5.6-liter, V8, 400-horsepower engine that can achieve 14-mpg in the city and 20-mpg on the highway. A 7-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard.
- Engine power
The engine of the QX was designed to be both more powerful and more efficient. the 5.6-litre Direct Injection Gasoline V8 features sophisticated VVEL valve control that enhances throttle response as well as economy. 400 hp & 413 lb-ft of torque deliver an impressive 8,500 lb towing capacity and the ability to pass with confidence. Acceleration is specially honed to the senses, increasing with a smooth, rising swell. The capability of the QX is matched with sensory reward.
- Hydraulic Body Motion Control System
Infiniti engineers complimented the power and size of the QX with innovative technology to augment cornering. The Hydraulic Body Motion Control System monitors force and distributes variable pressure to either the outer or inner suspension. The result is one smoother ride at all speeds.
- Luxury Atmosphere
Enter an interior crafted around touch, sight and sound. Modern materials and rich textures create a sophisticated space of warmth and elegance. Leather is specially treated to provide the softest touch and breathability for comfort in heat or cold. And to further foster solace, Inifiniti designed key areas of the QX with noise-insulating glass to help ensure peace and serenity.

For 3rd-row passengers, comfort is found in the shaped contours of seats that power-recline.
