This one has the face of a crash test dummy.

My mistake, the new QX56 has 400 horsepower and is even uglier, it looks like a dead, bloated, beached shark wearing one of those frowning, Shakespeare drama masks. I hate to be negative, but that vehicle looks hideous.

Hmmm.. I was wrong. I'd forgotten about the Cayenne Transsyberia. That seems to be the most ideal SUV. In off-road abilities that's a beast. But, damn, that's pretty ugly!

They might be, but the QX56 shares its 317 horsepower 5.6 liter V8 with the Nissan Titan pick up and Armada SUV, and I think that engine is made in America, I don't think any Japanese car company ever built any engine larger than a V6 without help from Americans. But the Pontiac Aztec is in my opinion the ugliest automobile ever built, and Nissan has been building some ugly vehicles lately, the Quest minivan looks like a beached sumo wrestler, the new NV van looks like a s toaster box on wheels, and the juke is ugly, too, it looks like a flea on a tiny rollerskate.

Strangely I didn't hear anything about the Pontiac Aztek. Yuck! But still Juke is uglier!

I dont care for SUVs at all, but if were gonna go with worst looking, without a doubt its the Pontiac Aztec(Disgusting), best looking would have to go with the Cayeene Turbo S.

One of best variant of a real powerful off-road car could be Porsche SUV. The only problem Cayenne isn't a real off-road, way not light and waay not cheap. I guess we can close eyes on its weight and price, because 3000 lb sounds too light for a SUV with off-road abilities. The price is ignored because, if it had the ultimate suspension for all-overland skills, it would high. Shame at the moment Porsche is creating absolutely useless "parquet" Macan..

I'm so waiting for the Lamborghini Urus! Though I guess it would be quite useless on the farmland, but, damn, that's magnificent! Would be better, if close my mouth about its future price and curb weight... ..V12 SUV! I don't know any SUV with V12 ever built, except Urus' predecessor - LM002! Imagine its sound! Huh, would it the same 700 PS? Madness! :D

As much as I like Nissan and Infiniti, I have to say...

They are good at making the occasional exceptionally ugly vehicle.

The Juke, 03 m45, the QX, the JX, and the FX.

I can tolerate the FX, but it is a bit odd looking.

All manufacturers are guilty of ugly cars. The Juke kinda makes Nissan stand out though. That sucks too, because the Juke is kinda cool in every other aspect. 190hp awd, 3000lbs, practical space, etc.

I would love a 3000lb, off road capable, awd, efficient, 300hp vehicle. Looks like my wish will never be granted though. Don't even say evo, sti, or anything similar. Decent offroad capability, similar to an Xterra or Wrangler.

A diesel, 300hp Xterra on a diet with updated suspension would be incredible.

If you're looking for something really disgusting, go to the Juke page... You will be affected, guarantee!

About this Infiniti? Ugly, but not the ugliest. Absolutely unfitting car to me. It's overpriced, too large, "dry", everywhere-automatic and just not an off-road car.

BTW, why it is said this SUV is made in USA? Aren't Infinitis produced in Japan and exported to USA?

does anyone else besides me think this is the world's ugliest SUV?
