Debuting at the LA Motor Show next month, the extended Range Rover comes with 5.51 inches of extra rear legroom and seats that recline to 17 degrees if you choose "Executive Class" rear seats instead of the bench. Later there will be a hybrid version too. 'L' badges are mounted on the side of the vehicle to let you know that it is indeed larger than normal.

These photos are of of the uber-expensive Autobiography Black which costs $226,891.









I'm just wondering if you guys think that the QX80 can compete with the long wheel base Range Rover? Not this super expensive special edition, but just the regular version.

Im pretty sure the Land Rover will have a nicer interior and be more capable off road

I can bet it'll be more expensive though.

A next generation QX80 might be able to but no way the current generation will. Infiniti isn't even at a level where they can compete with Range Rover. It's best to compare Range Rover with Porsche as they are more direct competitors.

I think that this is where Infiniti is aiming though. Its next QX80 should step things up a bit so that even if it isn't better than the Range Rover it will at least be able to compete.

That Range Rover looks first class. Look at the little tray that folds out in the back seat!

I think this long wheel base RR puts the Porsche to shame as well.

no one is cross shopping the Range Rovers with QX80. If you have the money you get the range, if you want to look like you have money you get the QX80 and tell people you considered the Range...

that's exactly how I see it, someone who can afford the range rover will always go for the range rover or some other high end SUV, they will never buy some lower end SUV like a QX80, Escalade, etc. They're just too mainstream.

That is not to say that the QX80 and the Escalade are bad vehicles. The Range Rover is just really really nice. Especially this long wheel base version. You don't think that Infiniti can up its game with its next QX80 model and be a better competitor to the Range Rover?

No.

Land Rover is a step above the German Trio, if Infiniti can't even compete with the Germans how are they supposed to go a step further and compete with LR?

The QX80 and Escalade aren't bad vehicles, they're actually amazing for the segment they serve, it's not just not something you want to put in the same sentence as a RR like this.
And if Nissan corp ever makes a RR Sport competitor, they shouldn't just throw it under the Infiniti brand but create a new high end brand, like how Mercedes has Maybach.
