Nissan’s luxury division – Infiniti, introduced the new 2011 Infiniti QX56 full-size SUV several weeks ago at the New York auto show.

Toyota is targeting the SUV market that still desires a lot of seating plus roomy cargo capacity, in addition to powerful towing capability.

The 2011 QX56 will begin going on sale in the early part of summer. Pricing for the QX will begin at $56,700 for RWD (does not include destination charges) and $59,800 for the 4WD.

The new QX offers lots of power – 400 hp from its beefy 5.6-liter V8 engine. That’s a 25 percent increase over the 2010 model.

Even with a bigger and more powerful engine the Infiniti QX56 added 2 mpg to its overall fuel economy – 16 mpg combined. The SUV reportedly gets 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.

The 2011 Infiniti QX56 does retain several styling elements from its predecessor. The SUV is much smoother, and features harder angles in addition to modified front grill and D-pillar treatment.

Inside, the QX56 is pure luxury. There has been a dashboard upgrade and comes with standard navigation, plus a Bose audio system.

The QX56 comes with attractive twenty-two-inch wheels. The wheels are bundled with Hydraulic Body Motion Control. Infiniti explains the Hydraulic Body Motion Control system helps prevent body roll during the vehicle’s cornering.
