( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Porsche Cayenne S vs and the Infiniti
QX56 have at least one thing in common: most owners will never take them
off-road. No make that two things in common: They both also have a V8

2012 Infiniti QX56 put to the 0-60 MPH Towing Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Infiniti QX56 is a big, powerful and
luxurious SUV built to haul people and a lot of their stuff. In fact this
vehicle with 400 HP and over 400 lb-ft of torque has a towing capacity that
exceeds 8000 pounds. But what does that mean in the real world where the
tires hit the road. We decided to find out by putting the Infiniti QX56 to
the TFLcar towing test. We hooked up a 5500 pound boat to the back of the
Infiniti QX56 to see how fast it would accelerate from 0-60 MPH @ 1 mile
above sea level. And of course just to see compare the difference we also
tried the same 0-60 MPH run with our the boat. How did the big Infiniti
QX56 fare? Check out this video to find out.
