The Car Pro Test Drives the 2022 Infiniti QX80
Thursday on Sunrise LBK with Dave King and Tom Collins, The Car Pro Jerry Reynolds joined Tom to talk about his test drive of the week, new cars coming out, what to do if your car gets egged, as well as other auto industry news.
This week, The Car Pro was test driving the 2022 Infiniti QX80, a car that has finally received some much needed improvements. Reynolds started the discussion by saying that he previously reviewed this car in 2019 with a completely loaded version, just like this one. Since then, the car has been refreshed, updated, and has new electronics which he says was desperately needed. On top of all that, it has dropped from $95,000 to $88,000. Focusing on the electronics, the car has had 2 large screens for several years, which Jerry said were quite cumbersome, and now it has a large 12.3 inch touchscreen that sits high up on the dash.
They made great strides on electronics, and frankly, they needed to.
The car has a nice interior, it drives well, rides well, and is very quiet inside. Reynolds said that if he could change anything about it, it would be both to update the exterior which has not been changed in a long time, as well as replacing the small moonroof with a much larger panoramic moonroof that many cars have these days. Again, the car has a price of $88,000, which Jerry thinks is reasonable in today's market.
Reynolds also talked about some stories on his website carprousa.com. One story gives a rating of the new Ford Maverick pickup, which he says he has been very curious to see the fuel economy on. The truck starts under $20,000 and gets 42 miles to the gallon in town with its 4 cylinder engine, which he says will turn some heads. Another story talks about the Hyundai Santa Cruz coming out, which he says will be the only competitor to this Ford truck. And finally, on the advice page, he talks about what to do if your car gets egged, which he says is timely with Halloween coming up.
