2018 INFINITI QX60 VS. 2018 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is a monster of a vehicle, with its powerful V8, towing capacity, and greatly improved fuel efficiency. However, it competes against the 2018 INFINITI QX60, an SUV which has been lauded for its spacious interior, equipment and sophisticated exterior. Which of them is better?

Design & Style

Even the standard QX60 comes equipped with 18-inch wheels, lush leather upholstery and touch screens which are 8 engines. The grille in the front is puckered, with chrome accents and punctuated headlights. It has a kickback which is crescent shaped and looks great inside and out. While the exterior of the Suburban has its classic boxy shape, the interior has been greatly improved. It also has eight-inch touch screens with an infotainment MyLink system. Apple CarPlay comes standard. Black is the Suburban’s best color, especially with its grille that is chrome heavy. It has a hard edge and sharp detail which will attract many people.

Technology & Safety

The Chevy Suburban has met most of its safety requirements. Every edition comes with 7 airbags which includes one positioned between drivers and passengers to prevent their heads from colliding during an accident. Throw in brakes which are anti-lock, stability control and Driver Alert and this vehicle does a good job of protecting those within it. The INFINITI QX60 has performed well on crash scores and incorporates some extremely advanced safety features such as control for stability and traction, an assortment of airbags, and surround and rearview cameras.


The INFINITI QX60 offers strong performance without disturbing the occupants, a feat which isn’t easy to accomplish. It can accelerate, turn and maneuver without drinks in the cup holders spilling over or disturbing sleeping children in the back. This is largely due to its large engine, which is a 3.5 liter V6 that can produce up to 295 horsepower. The main thing that has impressed those who have tested the QX60 is the smoothness of its operation. The Chevrolet Suburban has a V8 engine, which is one of the strongest in the automobile industry. This gives it a lot of weight (about 6,000 pounds) but also allows it to tow virtually anything you need. Its engine is 5.3 liter and can produce up to 355 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The QX60 and Suburban are both spacious, powerful, packed with lots of amenities, and are safe to drive. However, the cargo floor of the Suburban is too high, and it handles more like a truck than an SUV. It costs more but doesn’t deliver more than the INFINITI, so the QX60 easily wins here.
