2011 model year changes

Infiniti's flagship SUV gets a refresh for 2011, with new styling throughout that looks different than just about anything else on the road. The front end sees more flowing fenders and updated headlamps, while side scallops have been added behind the front wheels. Overall, the new SUV is longer, lower and wider than the 2010 model. Underneath its softer exterior, the platform has shifted from the Nissan Armada to the Nissan Patrol--an SUV not offered in the US--which makes for an even more solid luxury SUV. The 5.6L V8 has been reworked to produce 400 horsepower. A 7-speed automatic transmission is now standard.
