although most people who will buy these wont take it off-road or anything close to it, it's good to see what it's capable of which should put people at ease when certain situations come up.

Well in dirt roads it would do fine. I think if it had to climb things it wouldn't fair too well.

Just depends what it's climbing, it does have a big V8 full of torque after all

Who knew that the QX80 could hold its own off-road? Though I think no one really takes this thing off-road. Maybe to the camp ground, but I think that is about it. I don't think that Infiniti really touts the QX80's ability off-road. It isn't what the vehicle is aimed at.

Yea I doubt anyone will take it for serious off-roading

But a big engine. 4x4. Ground clearance

It'll work for moderate off-roading.

its more about tires though. you could have all the power and torque you want but if your rubber can't get that power down effectively then its a waste.

this is true, having tires that are good for off-road terrain does help. but as you know with an SUV like this, it's unlikely that owners will go that far. It's more so the hardcore jeep guys.

in 7-10 years as it gets cheaper, expect to see aftermarket blow up and more people modding them.

the lo range AWD system is also a big contributor to its off road capabilities.

Yup, no one is throwing off road tires on this beast any time soon.
