Most already know that from 0-60, the Infiniti QX56 is fast for a full-size SUV. It's quicker than the performance version of the DTS.. At what point does the Escalade take over? In other words, would 40-80 go to the Escalade? Or what?

Thank you...

I loved the way my 'lade got those speeds .So quick so fast.I would't tell you an exact time for those speeds as I didn't use a chrono .I wish I had done that.Anyway , I think I feel like it was climbing up faster than my current '00 STS but I had the PCM reprogrammed by the dealer .
Back to your question, QX56 might beat Escalade but I wouldn't be upset for that .Because nothing gives and looks as same as Escalade and for a SUV ,Escalade has a good acceleration imho.
I would suggest you to consider another SUV Audi Q7 V12 if speed is vital. When it hit the market I am sure it's gonna be the fastest machine around .

I should have been more descriptive and mentioned that I was asking about the 02-06 Escalade.. The new Escalade is quicker to 60 than the QX56...

The Infinity is much quicker......to have its cheap interior fall apart!

QX has been a sales and manufacturing disappointment. Too bad, because its reasonably quick and full of features.

I'm probably the minority but I love the "tank" look. I like tough looking trucks. The interior is extremely comfortable and luxurious.. I like the QX56 very much and I just don't see why anyone could dislike it...

I'm with you on the styling. I call it "Angry Robot".

The interior needs warmth. Compared to the new Escalade, LX470, and Range Rover, it feels like a clammy cave. What works for the Titan doesn't work so well in a luxury SUV.
