We’ve been leading up to the Dubai motor show for a while now bringing you all the updates of premieres taking place next month from November 14 when the doors to the World Trade Centre open.

The latest announcement comes from Infiniti, with the Japanese luxury brand preparing along a global debut in the form of the new QX80 full-size SUV. The car will be making its first public appearance anywhere in production form, but so far all we’ve got is some teaser shots.

You can expect Infiniti’s SUV flagship to take loads of styling cues from the concept version, that was presented at the New York motor show earlier this year.

The production 2018 QX80 should look fairly similar to the QX80 concept car we first saw earlier this year at the New York auto show

In particular the similarities between the concept and the production version are apparent up front. Infiniti’s design boss Alfonso Albaisa, said: “Our designers raised the visual height of our iconic double arch grille and signature headlamps striking an unmistakable road presence.”

Round the back, again going by the New York concept, you can expect the 2018 QX80 to go with slim taillights and a chrome bar spanning across the width of the rear, plus some rather sizable exhaust outlets.

Infiniti isn’t revealing any technical specifications but previously it was speculated that the 2018 QX80 will carry over on the same platform as the current model, but it’s unconfirmed whether the 5.6-litre 400 horsepower V8 will make way for Infiniti’s newer 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 that makes the same amount of power in exchange for a smaller hit to your wallet at the petrol station.
