Power and Performance
Every QX80 features the same hefty powertrain, a 5.6-liter V8 that powers the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission. This 400-horsepower engine is more than capable of getting even this heavy SUV up to speed quickly.
With the optional four-wheel-drive system, your QX80 is even more capable. You can use the extra traction to navigate sand, mud, and sleet with the best of them.
The optional Hydraulic Body Motion Control System (HBMC) amplifies ride comfort, especially when you’re bouncing down an off-road trail or leaning around a sharp turn. On rocky roads, HBMC helps keep vibrations from disturbing passenger comfort. Around turns, the system levels out the cabin, reducing the sinking feeling inside the turn.
