Exterior Features
Infiniti offers the 2013 QX56 in a single level of specification. Standard features include 20-inch aluminum wheels, xenon HID headlights, fog lights, power rear liftgate, and an integrated Class IV tow hitch receiver.

Interior Features
Every Infiniti QX is equipped with leather upholstery, power heated front seats, triple-zone automatic climate control, power sunroof, and Infiniti Intelligent Key with push-button ignition. The QX also includes a heated steering wheel, navigation system, and a Bose premium sound system with Bluetooth streaming audio capability.

Optional Features
Infiniti offers several upgrades for the QX56. In addition to a split bench seat for the second row, a set of 22-inch wheels, and a Technology package loaded with safety features, a Theatre package adds heated second-row seats, remote second-row seat tip forward feature for easier third-row seat access, and a dual-screen entertainment system with a 120-volt power outlet, wireless headphones, and more. Additionally, the Deluxe Touring package includes semi-aniline premium leather, Bose Studio Surround audio system, Advanced Climate Control system with a Plasmacluster air purifier, climate controlled front seats, and a Hydraulic Body Motion Control system designed to reduce body roll in turns.

Under the Hood
The Infiniti QX is equipped with a direct-injection, 5.6-liter V-8 engine that generates 400 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 413 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm, enough to garner a towing rating of 8,500 pounds. A 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control and Downshift Rev Matching is standard, and includes both Snow and Tow modes. An Infiniti All-Mode 4-wheel-drive system is available.

Fuel Economy
As this overview is written, the EPA had not established final fuel-economy estimates for the Infiniti QX.

Every 2013 Infiniti QX is equipped with 6 air bags, 4-wheel ventilated-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, traction and stability control system, and rain-sensing wipers. An Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection and front and rear park-assist sensors are also standard.

The QX56 can be equipped with a Technology package that includes full-speed-range Intelligent Cruise Control, Distance Control Assist, lane-departure warning, lane-departure prevention, blind-spot warning, Blind Spot Intervention, forward-collision warning, Intelligent Brake Assist, and an Adaptive Front Lighting System.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has performed crash tests on the Infiniti QX as this overview is written.
