There are not too many changes given to the 2017 INFINITI QX80 from the 2016 model, but all of them are for the better. They only add to features like INFINITI All-Mode 4WD, Bose 13-speaker premium audio system and smooth leather seats.
With that being said, let’s delve into what’s new for the 2017 INFINITI QX80 models at our Morris County, New Jersey dealership location.
We know that your phone’s data is important, especially if you’re on a family plan, and it’s a hassle if you have a limited amount. Good thing the new QX80 now offers Wi-Fi capability, so you can stay connected when driving on your daily commute or on a road trip without killing your data.
The INFINITI QX80’s Wi-Fi is provided in conjunction with the Theater Package that includes:
- Dual 7” color monitors for multimedia video playback
- 2 pairs of digital-quality wireless headphones
- Wireless remote control
- Auxiliary audio/video input jacks & 120V power outlet
- Heated outboard 2nd-row seats with remote tip-up capability
Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
The Driver Assistance Package has added a new feature: Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. This innovation uses radar to sense when you’re getting too close to the car in front of you or a pedestrian walking out into the street & will automatically apply the brakes to stop a crash from happening or minimizing the impact of a collision.
Other technologies used in the Driver Assistance Package that can help prevent you from getting into an accident include:
- Backup Collision Intervention
- Blind Spot Warning & Intervention
- Blind Spot Intervention System
- Lane Departure Warning & Prevention
- Intelligent Cruise Control
- Distance Control Assist
- Steering wheel switch for Safety Shield technologies
Trailer Sway Control
The 2017 INFINITI QX80 is capable of towing up to 8,500 lbs, which is enough for a good-sized boat, camper or off-road vehicles. The new trailer sway control feature keeps whatever you’re towing on its intended path (similar to how traction control works).
And that’s perfect for when bad weather like rain, snow, hail and ice come in, as well as on sand or in mud. The video above explains how the technology works.Shop For a New INFINITI QX80
