    Nissan Reported Infiniti QX56 Set New Record

    According to the company's press release, dated April 1, 2011, Infiniti sold 1,355 units in March, this year. In 2010 the March sales report stated that 1,041 vehicles were sold. Compared to the previous year, the model sales are up 30.2 percent. It is a new sales record, set by the full-size QX56 model.

    It looks like the first quarter of the current year is more than just success for the Japanese brand in the United States. Nissan North America reported about 121,141 vehicles, sold in March, 2011. This data includes Nissan and Infiniti results. It is a significant improvement in both income and sales. Infiniti division delivered 11,287 units to their owners during the last month. For comparison, the Company sold 9, 942 vehicles during March, 2010. These figures demonstrate the growth of the brand's popularity.

    The current QX56 is available in two variations for the North American market. Both two-wheel and all-wheel drive models come with the 5.6-liter 32-valve V8 power unit, which delivers 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to the electronically controlled seven-speed automatic transmission. The SUV gets 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg in the highway. The on-board technologies of the vehicle include Infiniti Intelligent Key with Illuminated Push Button Ignition, which unlocks the door or trunk distantly and helps to adjust memory setting once a driver is inside of the vehicle. The temperature within the cabin is set by Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control system. Infiniti offers its QX56 model with touch-screen Hard Drive Navigation system. From traffic, to weather and music, this on-board computer is a reliable assistant for a driver. The information is displayed on the high-resolution screen that supports Birdview perspective control and enhanced 3-D building graphics. The price of the 2011 Infiniti QX56 starts at $58,700.

    Infiniti QX56 Comes Back A True Luxury Machine
    Infiniti QX56 Comes Back A True Luxury Machine

    The all-new 2011 Infiniti QX56, which debuted at the New York Auto Show in March, atones the flaws of its predecessor and gives luxury SUV buyers a reason to turn their eyes back to Infiniti.

    The redesigned QX shares the platform with Nissan’s new Patrol SUV, which is sold outside of North America. The new QX56 comes with the familiar 5.6L engine, but the powerplant is new and direct injected. This 5.6-liter V-8, first seen in the 2011 M56 sedan, produces solid 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque, up from the old engine’s 320-hp and 393 lb-ft. The upgraded powerunit is mated to the new seven-speed automatic transmission, which boosts fuel economy a couple of mpg to 14 city and 20 highway. Thanks to the major horsepower and body-on-frame construction, the Infiniti QX can tow respectable 8500 pounds in either rear- or four-wheel drive configuration. The 2011 QX56 also boasts a hydraulic body motion control system that makes the big SUV flatter in turns and improves overall handling. Infiniti claims that the new system reduces body roll by 40%, which makes the new QX have less body roll than the BMW 5 Series.

    There’s a lot of luxury put in the QX’s interior. The cabin is roomy and quiet, and with Infiniti’s hard drive-based navigation unit, Bluetooth, XM satelite radio and options like semi-aniline leather seats or two 7-inch displays for passengers in the second row, it is as upscale as you’d expect an interior of an upmarket vehicle to be.

    Most noteworthy is the pricing. Despite the significant powertrain enhancements and improved styling, the Infiniti QX enters new model year without a price increase. The entry-level rear-wheel-drive QX56 starts at the exact same price as the old one, $56,700. The SUV will go on sale this summer.
