Default Q56

I dint drive Q56 but I had the feel of the interior. Its one of the biggest SUV's launched by Jap maker.


Integra is very aggressive car, though its discontinued in US, people still buy used ones here and make lots of engine mods. You get lots of after market performance parts for Integra.

Also Integra is the No:1 stolen car in US......be care full man...kidding

owned a type R had a free flow from the previous owner ...further installed an AEM cold air intake ..sold it in a years time ..loved it,,,i spent more time in the car than in the classroom....
but the Q56 is pure class dude coupled with a lot of muscle...competes quite well with the navigator and the escalade but i guess the escalade kinda has an edge over the 2 in north america due to the "BLING" factor

Speaking of the "BLING" factor.. I just saw the new music video of "THE GAME" with 50 cent driving an escalade with as he puts it "lamborghini doors", had them open and was driving around in it like that.
Now yea I know this has nothing to do with the topic.. but this seemed like the right place to put it

Default Cadii Escalade

Well I agree with you about Cadii Escalade. 22" Chrome wheels. They look great dude. Also you should watch Hummer H2 or the best H1. They look great man.

I saw this vehicle today. It was like Ford Endeavor Streched like a Limo. But it was written Navigator at the spare wheel cover and also "Lincoln" pasted on top. On the side "CONFIDENT GROUP" sticker. Me and my Dad was surprised to see such a big one. Dad asked me to overtake it(no problems with that ) to see the front, on the front it was same like Endeavour. Unfortunate that i didnt have my mobile with me that time to take the pics. It was KL 22 registration.

QX series is based currently on the NIssan Armada which has a 5.6L V8 so that is why it is QX56.

FX series is completley different.. and it has 3.5L v6 and 4.5L v8 which is the FX 35 and 45 respectively

the FX series was recently re deisnged and the newer derevatives are FX 37 with a 3.7 V6 and FX 50 with a new 5.0L V8.

navigator is bigger, aviator is its little brother. Navigators are very common in the US and are usually used as limo conversions or rentals. The interior is alright and resale value is worse than chunky pandey's acting career.

YES !!!!! It is a GM vehicle and fuel efficiency in city is about 11mpg!!! I have never driven one but I am guessing it handles like a suburban, maybe shares the same platform.

The confident groups has such stretched limo running down south. You will find one, a while color one, at their office near Silk Board flyover in Bangalore.

There was even one music program in Asianet, that was sponsored by the Confident Group where the price included a stretched limo. Seems like this type of vehicle is their favorite.
