2011 Infiniti QX56 4WD

The new QX56 is a huge beast, but it's also incredibly useful and luxurious. You could say the same about previous-generation QX, too, but the new model also adds a great deal more refinement, slick styling (rather than a simpler, truck-like look), more available features, and significantly more power. I particularly enjoyed the heated steering wheel, ventilated seats, and seriously nice sound system.

As you'd expect, handling is not the QX's strength, but power for passing and for carting around stuff definitely is. The new, smoother design makes the QX look smaller than before (and indeed it is narrower), but there's still more than enough room for most of the tasks that buyers would ask of such a vehicle.

None of you commented on how atrocious the steering/driver feedback is?I might as well have been drving by remote control.Great interior and good power but that is about it.I am buying the Denali. Hands down the better vehicle test driven so far.
I can never quite get over how huge QX's are when I see them on the streets.
