2011 Infiniti QX56 4WD

With its bulging hood, protruding rear end, and supersized exterior bling factor, the QX56 has a massive presence. Just how big is it? When I lumbered into the parking garage yesterday in my old Land Cruiser, the result was shocking: the QX literally dwarfs it. Most surprising was the height difference -- my truck's hood was significantly lower than the Infiniti's.

And as for feeding a 17-mpg habit? I get excited when my own truck manages 15 mpg on the highway. It just goes to show that, in the eleven years since my Land Cruiser was produced, Nissan has apparently figured out how to make a bigger, faster, and more efficient jumbo SUV.

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.
