2011 Infiniti QX56

2011 Infiniti QX56 Road Test and Review

Set to go on sale in July 2010 as a 2011 model, the next generation Infiniti QX is all new.  Its new high-stiffness frame structure enhances ride comfort through the use of Infiniti’s Hydraulic Body-Motion Control system.  The new 5.6-liter V8 engine combines the responsive acceleration of Infiniti’s VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift) technology with the efficiency of a Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) engine mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission.  With 400 horsepower and 413 lbs-ft of torque, the QX can tow up to 8,500 lbs. Fuel consumption has improved by 14% in the new QX56 for 2011.

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
