Winner: Tie

Which baseline engine option you prefer will ultimately depend on your needs. While the Infiniti has a lower-than-average fuel economy, its robust V8 engine on new models more than makes up for the loss in efficiency. For an everyday driver with limited offroad capabilities, you may consider the Ford Expedition. However, the power of the QX80 allows for a more adventurous luxury vehicle.

INFINITI QX80 vs. Ford Expedition: Standard Features

Both vehicles have a wide range of standard and optional interior features, with them both sharing the following:

  • Apple CarPlay: Standard
  • Android Auto: Standard
  • Keyless Entry: Standard
  • Keyless Ignition: Standard
  • Navigation System: Standard

However, the Ford Expedition lags on this as several standard features on the QX80 are only offered as paid additions on the Ford Expedition. The QX 80 has native wireless smartphone charging, adaptive cruise control, heated seats, and heated steering wheels in its leather upholstered interior, which is non-standard on the Expedition.

Winner: Infiniti QX80

One of the main selling points of the Infiniti QX80 is its robust suite of standard features compared to the competition.


INFINITI QX80 vs. Ford Expedition: Pricing And Warranty

While the Infiniti QX80 targets the luxury market, the Ford Expedition focuses on bridging the gap between demands, which places it in an odd position. High priced for budget shoppers yet, lacking in numerous luxury features, it doesn't fill a niche and thus suffers for it. While the Infiniti QX80 doesn't shy away from its heftier price tag, it is not locked in limbo and firmly states what it is all about.

When it comes to warranty, the Ford loses some of its value as a long-term investment. The Ford Expedition has a basic warranty of 3 years / 36000 miles and a powertrain of 5 years / 60000 miles. Contrastingly, the QX80 has a basic of 4 years / 60000 miles and a powertrain warranty of 6 years / 70000 miles.

Winner: Tie

The choice between the two will depend on your needs. If you want power and prestige, go with the Infiniti QX80. The Ford Expedition may be what you are looking for in this department for fuel economy and a better budget.


If you want an all-around luxury SUV, you can't go wrong with the Infiniti QX80. Based on its robust suite of features and potent engine, the market confused Ford Expedition couldn't keep up with Infiniti's laser focus.
