Nissan announced pricing for its carryover luxury SUV, the 2010 Infiniti QX56, revealing a $1000 increaseabove the starting price of the 2009 model.
The Infiniti QX comes in only one trim, but is available in two-wheel or four-wheel drive. The two-wheel drive model carries a price tag of $56,915 (including an $865 destination fee), while the four-wheel drive model demands a $3100 premium.
Regardless of the number of driven wheels, the Infiniti QX56 comes equipped with a standard 320-horsepower 5.6-liter V-8 paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission. Inside, the Infiniti includes a lengthy list of standard luxury features,such asleather seats, Infiniti's hard-drive-based navigation system, XM Satellite Radio with NavTraffic, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, a 9.3-gigabyte Music Box hard drive and a power-folding third row bench seat.
The QX56's options list is relatively light. A technology package adds intelligent cruise control and a front sonar system; a split bench seat package replaces the second-row captain's chairs with a split-folding bench seat; a towing package adds a class IV tow hitch system and a 7-pin wiring harness; and a mobile entertainment package adds a front-mounted DVD-player with an 8-inch ceiling-mounted monitor.
