Believe it or not, these QX56 test utes are running around in far less camouflage their sibling, Nissan’s Pathfinder Armada, was at this point of the pre-introduction stage. And that small amount of missing fabric allows us to see many of the changes that will take the big and powerful Nissan and change it into the luxury Infiniti, challenging a string of large and high-dollar SUVs, including the Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln’s Navigator and the Lexus GX470.

Although the body shell remains the same as the Nissan Pathfinder Armada, the Infiniti has unique front and rear fenders and lights, and the most aggressive Infiniti grille to date. Even the license-plate location has changed. The camouflage implies changes on the sides as well, and the Infiniti name ensures luxury amenities throughout.

The QX56 will be built in Canton, Miss., along side the new Titan and Pathfinder Armada, and will be powered by Nissan’s 300-horsepower 5.6-liter V-8. We believe the QX56 will be available in the first quarter of 2004 as an early 2005 model.

Very interesting. Any word on what this will be powered by Gav? The rear door looks odd, like it's sloped down at the top, I'm really curious to see the lines on the final version.

And yes that is a HUGE grill!

Here's a better look... only it's the Pathfinder Armada.

It's in the article above no?

That Nissan version is ugly and it looks like that but with the now common Infiniti grill. It could have been cool if they had taken their "sports car SUV" hybridization concept up a notch for the super-Ute category.

I agree with Semi... The Infiniti grill will make the car look much better. They've got to make more of a distinction between the Nissan/Infiniti versions. They've done a horrible job of that on the QX4.
