I like big SUVs, and I love luxury. So the 2016 Infiniti QX80 has always been on my radar, and I got a chance to test drive it for Autobytel a few weeks ago.

Body-on-frame SUVs have been disappearing over the past decade or so, replaced in the marketplace by unibody crossover vehicles. It makes sense — crossovers are generally lighter and more fuel-efficient than body-on-frame models, and CAFE standards get tougher every year. But there are still buyers who need and want full-size SUVs, and many of those buyers demand a luxury vehicle.

Infiniti’s take on the big SUV differs from the competition. Swoopy design, high tech features and four-wheel independent suspension make QX80 unique, and I like it.
