2022 INFINITI QX80 vs 2022 Cadillac Escalade
The Cadillac Escalade has set the golden standards for full-size luxury SUVs over the years. Against an opponent of such high stature, the INFINITI QX80 has no answer. The Cadillac outclasses the INFINITI in the power charts, by offering higher horsepower and torque with its base engine. Cadillac also offers a turbo-diesel engine option, which unfortunately isn’t available on its Japanese counterpart. The Escalade almost drives around like a car, paying no heed to its massive exterior dimensions while cruising around.
The QX80 on the other hand still drives around like a boxy SUV. The Escalade also sports a plethora of luxury features and technology inside, and also keeps its passengers happy with its sensational interior space. The QX80 redeems itself with its all-new touchscreen and premium interior materials. In terms of safety, the QX80 adds in 1 or 2 extra driver assistance features than the Escalade but its safety scores aren’t on par with its rival. For the higher price tag, we believe the Cadillac Escalade is worth every penny compared to the QX80 and should be a clear winner in this duel.
2022 INFINITI QX80 vs 2022 Lincoln Navigator
The Lincoln Navigator is another stern American rival that is priced in a similar range to the Cadillac we compared earlier. The Navigator has the clear upper hand in terms of power, as it annihilates the QX80 with its monstrous torque. The Navigator also offers a 4x4 drivetrain as an option, whereas the QX80 buyers will only have to settle for an AWD drivetrain.
Besides, all the iterations of the Navigator are more fuel-efficient than the comparable trim levels of the QX80. The Navigator’s interiors and infotainment suite have just been refreshed this year and look more upscale than the QX80. The Navigator also offers more cargo room than the QX80 to store your luggage no matter how you fold the rear seats. Overall, the Lincoln Navigator is the better SUV in almost every aspect.
2022 INFINITI QX80 vs 2022 BMW X7
The BMW X7 fulfills the true motives of a high-end Bimmer, which is to provide excellent driving dynamics, ride quality, and performance that thrills every driver. Although the QX80 takes the onus with additional power onboard, the BMW X7 is the better SUV to drive in everyday situations. The BMW also offers more in terms of interior dimensions and packs in a plethora of cutting-edge technology and luxury bits. However, the BMW’s 3rd-row seating is a bit impractical for adults with the limited shoulder room and legroom.
The QX80 takes advantage by offering more space for passengers in the 3rd-row seats and also more luggage room behind those seats. The INFINITI QX80 is very well-rounded in terms of interior versatility and cargo management, making it a better family hauler. Although if you want to enjoy the adrenaline rush by zipping around in a full-size SUV, the BMW X7 is the best choice in the market.
