Eight Great Tailgating Vehicles

2011 Infiniti QX56

If you're looking to show up to a sporting event with one of the largest, most comfortable vehicles on the road that also happens to be filled with the latest and greatest in gadgetry, it's time to consider the 2011 Infiniti QX56.

The 13-speaker optional sound system is sourced from Bose, and features a pair of subwoofers for increased bass performance. An available theater package comes with two seven-inch monitors, two sets of wireless headphones, and a 120-volt outlet. Audio/video input jacks allow gamers to bring along a PS3 and play some virtual football from the parking lot. Four 12-volt power outlets offer plenty of power for charging small gadgets. Three-zone automatic climate control means everyone will be comfortable in a variety of weather conditions. An eight-inch infotainment screen is plenty large enough, and Infiniti's Around View monitoring system offers visibility when backing into a tricky parking spot.

Second-row captain's chairs come standard and are optionally heated. Seating capacity is seven passengers, but moves to eight with an optional bench seat in the second row. High-grade leather hides grace the seating surfaces and Tuscan or mocha burl wood finished interior accents.

The QX56 is powered by a 5.6-liter V-8, making 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The standard seven-speed automatic transmission helps the SUV achieve 14/20 mpg city/highway in both rear and all-wheel-drive trim.
