2011 Infiniti QX56
2011 Infiniti QX56
The Infinity QX is a new addition to the Infinity family of vehicles and is re-branded version of the Nissan Armada. This vehicle was actually built in the same factory as its Nissan counterpart. This full sized luxury SUV vehicle has a very bold look and offers some of the most aggressive styling that you will find on any Infinity vehicles. The QX comes in both a 2WD and a 4WD version. Both of the QX SUV models come standard with a 5.6 L V-8 engine that cranks out 400 HP of sheer trucking pleasure. There are many full size SUV models on the market, but the QX is unmatched when it comes to elegance, style and luxury.

Cadillac Escalades, Land Rover and the Lexus 570 are all in the same class and compete with this Infinity model. The QX56 is going to be a strong competitor without a doubt. With four wheel independent suspension this vehicle offers a very nice ride even though it is built on a truck chassis. With less road noise than other models in the same class, huge horsepower and a striking body design, the QX may be the SUV to beat in 2011.

With the unrelenting news reports about the lingering recession, it would be easy to think that expensive, full-size luxury SUVs are becoming extinct. Although it's true that some of the casual buyers who wandered into this segment during boom times have moved on to less pricey, more modest vehicles, there are still plenty of people with means who need a large vehicle to move their families and their trailers but don't want to sacrifice comfort and all-weather capability while doing so. Infiniti, betting that this profitable segment won't completely disappear, redesigned the QX56 for 2011 to meet the luxury and utility needs of these coveted customers.
Infiniti QX Powered Boat Flip
Work continues on the Infiniti QX56-powered luxury boat, which we first learned about last July. Infiniti provided the latest news on the “luxury boat project” powered by the SUV's 400-hp, 5.6-liter VK56DE V-8-engine. At the start of the project, Infiniti recruited automotive tech students from the Tennessee Technical Center-Nashville and Nashville State Community College who assisted with the extraction of the VK56DE engine from a donor QX56. The students also removed a few components unnecessary for aquatic use (i.e. the power steering pump). Since then, the engine has made a number of pit stops with specialists to further prepare it for life on the open waters. Bracket Marine in Westbrook, Maine for modifications to ensure a proper fit to the ZF/Hurth marine transmission. Next, a shop in Alabama installed water-cooled exhaust manifolds and a closed cooling system. Now, the engine is on its way to the automaker’s factory in Decherd, Tennessee, where it will be dyno’d before returning to Maine for installation into the hull of the donor boat. That boat for the record, is a vintage 1962 Chris Craft Holiday, which will need to undergo heavy restoration before the engine is fitted into the hull. Up to 85 percent of the boat’s wood will have to be replaced as well as all the upholstery, hardware, and wiring. Once completed, the boat is expected to be a outstanding looker and performer. “When the 20-foot Chris-Craft Holiday model was introduced in 1962, it was said to be one of the best performing Chris-Craft hulls ever produced,” said George “Dodo” Brockman, owner of Freeport Boat Outlet, who is overseeing the build of the Infiniti boat project. “It cornered well, was easy to come on plane, and was often used in nationally sanctioned competition water skiing events for just those reasons. We can’t wait to see how this classic design performs with the new engine.” The boat is no stranger to hot-rodding and has previously been powered by four different engines over the course of its lifespan, including a 431-cubic inch Lincoln plank head marine engine and a 440-cubic inch Chrysler Hemi marine V-8. “The use of the powerful Infiniti QX56 V8 is fitting with the history of this particular craft,” said Brockman. “The Infiniti V-8 is actually lighter than all of the previous powerplants and won’t require any special bracing or hull modifications to fit it into the original engine bay."

2011 Infiniti EX35 Front Three Quarter
Infiniti has released updated pricing and option packaging for its body-on-frame QX SUV and EX crossover. The QX was redesigned for 2011 and therefore receives minimal changes for 2012. The EX receives pricing updates and minor equipment updates. The biggest news for the QX is the addition of Infiniti’s Blind Spot Intervention system available in the Technology Package. Like other blind spot monitoring systems, Infiniti’s Blind Spot Intervention system alerts the driver if there is a vehicle in their blind spot, but it also has the ability to take over steering to keep the SUV in its lane if the driver begins to move over. The Bose Cabin Surround sound system is now included in the Deluxe Touring Package, and has added two more speakers, bringing the total to 15. Heated second row seats have moved from the Deluxe Touring Package to the Theater Package. Headlight washers are added to the Deluxe Touring Package on 2WD models. Infiniti toed the line on 2012 QX56 pricing, which remains the same as the outgoing 2011 model. The QX56 2WD starts at $58,700 and the 4WD model adds an additional $3100; totaling $61,800. Both models are powered by Infiniti’s direct-injected 5.6-liter V-8 mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. The 2012 EX35 soldiers on almost unchanged from 2011. The biggest news, besides pricing, is the addition of HomeLink Universal Transceiver standard on the EX35 Journey trim. It was previously part of the Deluxe Touring Package. The EX35 is available in rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, with or without the “Journey” trim level. The EX35 RWD starts at $35,600, and the EX35 AWD starts at 37,000. Specifying the Journey trim with either model adds an additional $2300 to the bottom line; totaling $37,900 and $39,300 respectively. All models are powered by Infiniti’s 297-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Source: Infiniti
