2019 INFINITI QX80 vs. 2019 Lincoln Aviator | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI QX80 vs. 2019 Lincoln Aviator

The 2019 QX80 is the largest SUV offered by INFINITI. Despite being powered by a V8 engine, it has an interior which is as quiet as a library, with ultra-smooth leather and an appearance that can intimidate bystanders. But how does it compare to the 2019 Lincoln Aviator, an SUV which many industry pundits consider a major contender due to its spectacular interior, infotainment, and handling?

Design & Style

The Aviator is Lincoln’s flagship SUV, and this is apparent from the moment one lays eyes on it. It uses a fresh structural design that has three row seating within, with smooth curvature in the exterior that makes it the pride of those that own it while being the envy of those who don’t. INFINITI has sharpened the headlights of the latest QX80, while removing the under bite and updating the grille. The nose is also less prominent than in previous editions, with new lights for the tail gate. The interior seating uses quilted leather that is soothing to skin that is lucky enough to come into contact with it.

Technology & Safety

All versions of the QX80 now come with emergency automatic brakes. As you can imagine, the interior offers a great deal of room, with additional space for cargo. Other safety features include blind area monitoring along with cruise control which is adaptive and warnings for forward collisions. A power lift gate is also available, along with seats that can be heated and power adjusted with a Bose sound system. The Lincoln Aviator comes with many of the same safety features seen in the QX80, along with a few things that are distinct, such as propulsion hybrid system and lithium ion battery that can be found beneath the floor. Unlike many of its contemporaries the Aviator uses a motor which is electric.


Lincoln Aviators come with a standard V6, 3 liter engine that is twin turbocharged, giving it 400 horsepower with 450 pound of torque. Its drive train is hybrid and it also has dampers which are adaptive. However, the INFINITI QX80 pulls no punches when it comes to the performance under its hood. It comes with a V8, 5.6 liter engine that produces 400 horsepower with 413 pound of torque. Rear drive has been standardized, with a transmission that automatic seven speed.

The Bottom Line

Both of these SUVs were designed for serious drivers that have deep pockets. They are well matched in every area, particularly performance, but the Aviator has one thing that works against it: price. Producing an electric vehicle of this caliber and tech will mean an exorbitant price tag, and many drivers aren’t yet fully sold on electric vehicles, so the QX80 is a preferred choice over the Aviator.
