“Dad that Infiniti is sicker than the Escalade!”
12 year old Duncan
Recently another Canadian web writer wrote that the QX56 was a dinosaur. She went on to wonder who would want drive this monstrous brute, even calling it a brontosaurus. We all have our opinions, but I’m here to tell ya that the young lady was way off on this one.
For 2011, the mighty Infiniti QX56 was completely redesigned. The exterior styling no longer mirrors its less opulent cousin, the Nissan Armada, favoring instead the exaggerated front end curves of Infiniti’s FX line up. While I was a fan of the older model’s unusual roof line, I get the feeling that I was in the minority.
Personally, I love the new look and obviously so does my kid. More telling though was the reaction around town. The first day the mighty QX lived with us, I dropped off our teenage daughter at high school and watched as 2 crowds of young dudes went spastic at the sight of the beast. Over the following week I was approached by many people in parking lots who wanted to see the newest Infiniti. Others waved and smiled while stopped at intersections. People absolutely dig this truck.
