If you want an SUV that offers comfortable seating for the entire family, a luxuriously smooth, enjoyable ride and the ability to tow all those toys when you go on vacation, the 2012 Infiniti QX56 might be your answer. With a variety of package options to meet the needs of your individual family, you’ll be able to have a vehicle that is truly designed to tick all the boxes for what you want in a luxury SUV.

Key Features

With enough space for up to eight passengers and a towing capacity of 8,500 pounds, the 2012 Infiniti QX56 offers plenty. Standard Hill Start Assist and Snow Modes make driving safer in slippery weather, and the available 360-degree camera adds additional safety when on the road and in busy areas.

Changes for 2012

The changes for 2012 are minimal, with all being in the form of available packages. The Theater Package adds heated second row seats, the Technology Package features Blind Spot Intervention and the Deluxe Touring Package includes a surround sound system by Bose.

What We Like

Independent suspension delivers a smooth ride, while the cabin successfully quiets both engine and outside noise. Passengers will also appreciate all the controls that are readily available that lets them make adjustments without bothering the driver. The tailored options packages are also spot-on and allow drivers to truly tailor the vehicle to their own needs, without going over budget.

What Concerns Us

The 2012 Infiniti QX56 is an SUV, but it also has a shorter wheelbase that eats up some of the available cargo space. The front end is also a bit taller than what is seen on previous models, which could be uncomfortable for some drivers, and the steering is somewhat light for the power and size of this SUV.

Available Models

The 2012 Infiniti QX56 is available in four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive options. Both have the same 5.6-liter V8 engine that delivers a hefty 400 horsepower and 413 ft-lb of torque. Drivers can expect city/highway fuel economy of 14/20 mpg with both models.

Major Recalls

There has been one major recall issued for the 2012 Infiniti QX56. The fuel pressure sensors on some vehicles may not have been tightened properly during production. This can result in a fuel leak that could cause a fire if an ignition source is nearby.

Common Issues

There are no commonly reported issues for this vehicle.

Honda CR-V - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Marietta, Georgia
Prompt and knowledgeable. David arrived early to do our pre-purchase car inspection and completed it in a timely fashion. He communicated his findings, recommendations by phone and text message, which was nice. I appreciated the information and details he provided.
Mercedes-Benz E400 - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Kennesaw, Georgia
David called when he arrived and called shortly after he finished inspecting the vehicle. Unfortunately, due to the inefficiency of the sales representative at the dealership, David was not able to drive the vehicle as the final phase of the inspection.

Nicholas was prompt efficient, and very knowledgeable. He performed a thorough evaluation of 2 cars at a dealership that appeared very similar. He explained his reports to me and gave me great guidance and information to make my decision. The money I spent for the 2 inspections was money well spent. I am sure I made the right choice thanks to Nicholas.
