Discerning customers will adore the prestige that they are getting when they opt for a new INFINITI like the QX80.  


The 5.6L V8 engine in the 2022 INFINITI QX80 delivers a heart-pounding 400 horsepower for enjoyable everyday driving in and around the Denver Metro region. Coupled with the seven-speed automatic transmission that comes with the SUV, everyone in the vehicle will get a sense of smooth and robust performance as they navigate their surroundings. Comparatively, the 2022 Escalade comes equipped with a 6.2L V8 engine that generates 420 horsepower. The Cadillac SUV pairs its engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission. RWD is the standard drivetrain option for both elite SUVs, and both can also have AWD platforms installed instead. The QX80 outperforms the Escalade on the highway when it comes to overall fuel efficiency estimates.  

Interior Features

The INFINITI begins to showcase its value to the customer when it comes to the superb interior features that it offers when compared to the more expensive Cadillac. While both SUVs provide heated functionality for their front seats as a standard feature, the driver’s seat in the INFINITI features 10-way powered adjustability at its baseline. Meanwhile, the driver of the baseline Escalade can only adjust their seat eight different ways. Both SUVs come equipped with dynamic automatic tri-zone climate control systems to give their cabins impeccable air quality and temperature consistency. Additional convenience features like a wireless smartphone charging pad and an integrated Wi-Fi® hotspot also come standard on both the INFINITI and the Cadillac. From their respective infotainment systems, premium systems ranging from SiriusXM® radio to integrated navigation are included as standard features.  

Safety Features

Despite both SUVs being elite vehicles, the Cadillac omits a standard driver-assistance feature that every 2022 INFINITI QX80 comes equipped with. Long highway trips are made much more enjoyable for the driver of any QX80 with standard Adaptive Cruise Control engaged. Customers looking at purchasing an Escalade will have to opt for an even more expensive version of the SUV to get the same feature. In terms of keeping everyone inside the vehicle safe, the SUVs are equipped with Automatic Emergency Braking systems that also utilize additional Pedestrian Detection technology to ensure that drivers are always aware of what is going on with the space in front of the vehicle.
