Ride and handling are improved since the QX has been designed as an SUV rather than being built off a modified pickup-truck platform.

Buyers should be prepared to shell out major bucks at the gas pump. Both the rear- and four-wheel drive versions of the QX return only 14 mpg in city driving and 20 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The standard 5.6-liter V-8 engine has direct fuel injection and makes 400 horsepower. It is linked to a seven-speed automatic transmission.
