2018 INFINITI QX80 VS 2018 CHEVROLET TAHOE | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe is similar to a pickup truck with its tremendous towing capacity and useful space. It continues to be a popular vehicle in the USA, largely due to its V-8, 420 horsepower engine and its all-wheel drive. The 2018 INFINITI QX80 is a stylish vehicle that is packed with luxury amenities and has impressive passenger space and performance credentials. Therefore, a comparison between the two is interesting.

Design & Style

Both vehicles have a sporty exterior, and the cabins are serene and luxurious. The Chevy Tahoe has optional features such as badging which is blacked out along with wheels that are 22 inches. Buyers also have the option of installing the metallic paint Satin Steel, Black Currant or Champagne Silver. The INFINITI has a flashy outside but it is the inside that really shines. Passengers will relax on soft leather that is exceptional in quality while having lots of space for relaxation.

Technology & Safety

The Chevy Tahoe has its MyLink infotainment unit, which works with downloadable apps and the vehicle incorporates grilles that are aerodynamically efficient. It even has a driving mechanism for teenagers which allows their parents to monitor where and how they drive. Throw in some emergency brakes, and emblems with bow tie illumination, the Chevy Tahoe is quite advanced. The INFINITI counters this with central touch screens, a theater system, and multiple USB ports for various electronic devices. Overall, the INFINITI has the more impressive technology.


The INFINITI QX80 uses a V-8, 5.6-liter engine that is similar to the one used in the Q70 sedan. It produces a very nice 400 horsepower with 413 pounds worth of torque. Its automatic seven-speed is very comfortable to use and with a towing capacity of 8500 pounds, it has no trouble carrying 7 passengers. The Chevy Tahoe, however, edges out the INFINITI with its 6.2-liter V-8 engine along with the brand new automatic ten-speed transmission. As a consequence, the Tahoe has a decided advantage in the performance department.

The Bottom Line

Both vehicles are big and powerful with lots of room for passengers and enough amenities to transform each into a hotel with wheels. However, the INFINITI has superior styling, is less cramp in the interior and has advanced features which edge out the Chevy Tahoe. For those who are looking for the best choice, the INFINITI QX80 is without a doubt the winner.
