2008 (2009, and 2010) Infiniti QX56 - Click above for a high-res image gallery

Infiniti has announced pricing on the 2010 QX56 full-size luxury SUV. Essentially a carry-over of the model that was last updated in 2008, the base MSRP for the 2WD model is $56,050 (*plus destination and handling of $865), while the 4WD model arrives at $59,150. Loyalists of the brand will recognize this as a $1,000 bump in pricing when compared to last year's model.

All QX56 models share a 320-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. As has always been the case, the flagship truck arrives heavily laden with technology and creature comforts, leaving just a few items on the options list. These include a Technology Package ($1,150), Mobile Entertainment Package ($1,700), and the Tow Package ($350). A split bench seat package is a no-cost option. Infiniti dealers will also gladly sell you splash guards, wind deflectors, and chrome lashes for everything but the front windshield. Check out the press release after the jump.

      Ugly, yes, but just the front, I do own an Armada, I'm the only one in my neighborhood, I cant stand this front end, but I LOVE my Armada.

      here in the buckhead area of Atlanta, I see these all the time, my neighbors, own two of these both 2009, one is black the other is a Beige color.
      Interior, is identical to my Armada, but the difference is about 15k, so I am totally fine with mine

      Last I looked TMV for a new one was invoice (per Edmunds) but I have seen Demos as low as $45k

      here's how ridiculous that vehicle is: i have NEVER seen one of those on the road. I've seen more BMW X6's, more Chrysler Pacificas, more Lexus LX (whatever the hell the tarted-up Land Cruiser is) on the road and in the flesh than that rebadged bulbous gauche monstrosity. It is so clearly a rebadge of a Nissan model that in-and-of itself is too hideous and boring to sell in any meaningful quantity. The fact that they charge so much for it to boot is laughable, only the French would buy something that looks like that, and even then just to confound the rest of us.

        I see atleast 5 every single day. And the nearest Infiniti dealer is 2.5 hours away.

        You probably see them and think Nissan Armada. Not any difference except the badges.
        • 5 Years Ago
        They are around in Tampa, but the Escalade is probably 654 times more popular (rough guess).
      • 5 Years Ago
      Can you name the truck with four wheel drive,
      smells like a steak and seats thirty-five...
      • 5 Years Ago
      they still have that distinctive rambler roofline a styling disaster.56 large what a overgrown underpowered ugly POS . anyone who does buy one is got to be a friken masochist.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Underpowered, you've obviously never driven one. The responsive drivetrain is hands down the best thing about this rolling eyesore - and the best thing about the Titan and also-eyesore Armada as well.

        Not quite as good as Toyota's extraordinary iForce / 6 speed, nothing is, but it's right up there with GM's 6.2 in the Escalade and Denalis.

        That 320 hp brochure rating is hedging. By the dyno it's more like 375 and with a 6 speed it'd damn near match the Toyota.

      The goggles, they do nothing!

      I've hated this truck since it was introduced. Infiniti jumped on the luxury body on frame SUV trend too late in the game with an ugly entrant. The bumpy roof-line and strangely shaped rear doors are nasty.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I wouldn't set the line production rate too high if I were Infiniti.
      • 5 Years Ago
      God that thing is fugly, since 2008, Infiniti couldn't find the funds to update that bulbous front end?
        • 5 Years Ago
        It's amazing how these SUVs -- which used to be so popular -- are now like a dinosaur.

        Probably a combination of the economy and fuel prices.
        • 5 Years Ago
        The front end is bad. I can't quite describe why but the headlights make it look retarded.
      • 5 Years Ago
      All I can say is that I hope they replace this with a 2011 QX based on the new Nissan Patrol, but outfitted for Infiniti duty. An updated 5.6L with direct-injection and other advancements could easily push this thing to nearly or more than 400 hp, and allied with a 7-speed, economy could even stay about the same.
      • 5 Years Ago
      They are still selling huge disgusting messes like this?
      • 5 Years Ago
      I don't think it looks bad, but at the same time I would rather an Armada. I've seen quite a few of those here in Utah.
