What do the 2014 Range Rover Sport, Infiniti QX80, Toyota Highlander and the Dodge Durango all have in common? They all can be purchased with three rows of seats and they are All Wheel Drive. In TFLcar's biggest Mashup ever, we put these four big SUVs up against each other to see which one is the best.

4 part review

Nice watch. Good detail and a first comparison of the QX80 that I've seen

I found it weird how they're putting a Durango and QX80 in a review together, i wouldn't even compare the two of them. The dodge is a dodge.
Infiniti is luxury, better to compare it to the range rover.

its all about needs, who cares what box you want to put them into. They all have 3 rows, v8s and are competent towers. Many families of means don't drive luxury vehicles. A good friend of mine is parter at a large criminal law firm and hes been driving Honda Accords for 20 years. Why? because it fits his needs.

I do agree. Many people would rather get a cheaper but still nice vehicle and save that extra money per month for something else. College savings fund, family vacation, investments. Having said that, i really don't like Dodge. QX80 or Range Rover if you are looking up market and the Highlander if you want something cheaper.

and to add to that, i doubt someone who has the money to by a Range Rover will consider buying an Infiniti. While Range Rover is well known for their high end SUV's, Infiniti is viewed quite low compared to them.

Range Rovers are also known to leave you stranded with reliability issues. not to mention they're more expensive to fix then your average german ware.

thats what happens with a lot of high tech German and British vehicles, still worth getting them if you have the money.

if it's expensive to you to fix it, you shouldn't be buying it, simple as that.

no its expensive to fix for everyone. Why do you think at least 3/4 of german volume is leases.

So by your rationale I should spend $70K on a new vehicle and then be perfectly happy sinking at least half the MSRP into repairs, or are you saying i should buy a quality product with no quality?

because I've always known luxury to be quality....

Im saying if it's too expensive for you to fix, then it's not for you. Some people can justify the cost, some can't, you have to pay to plya

you missed the point. ALL German cars are exorbitantly expensive to fix, which wouldn't be a problem if they were reliable, but they're not. I'll say it again theres a reason most german volume is in leases, NOBODY wants a german luxury car out of warranty. NOBODY.

Ever wonder why you never see 90's/early 2000's range rovers on the road? Nobody wants to fix them...

See where this is going.... It was never a question of paying or playing. But how frequently does one have to pay before it becomes surreal?

its a frequency thing..

put that way it's true.
mainly you see older japanese luxury vehicles on the road and not many germans. after warranty is up people get rid of them like a bad habit

Infiniti doesnt sell many QX80s QX56.

But most of the ones that sold are probably still on the road

Can't say the same about the Range Rover or Durango.

It's always like that, it's always Japanese vehicles that have their bodies rust way before the engine and any other vital components are ready to go. They last a WHILE.
