If you’re looking for an alternative to the Porsche Cayenne, BMW X6, or a Mercedes-Benz ML550, Infiniti has the vehicle for you. Meet the FX, which brings a wealth of performance credentials and distinctive design to the luxury crossover class.

The FX begins with a design that really helps it stand out from the luxury crossover crowd. To start, Infiniti put a large front grille to help give the FX an aggressive look. Other cues to take note of are the large wheels, swooping lines, and sloping roofline. Inside, the FX is filled to the brim with luxury items such as leather seats, maple wood trim, Bose sound system, and around-view monitor system.

Powering the FX are two engines: a 3.7L V6 (FX37)  producing 325 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque and a 5.0L V8 (FX50) making 390 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Both engines go through a seven-speed automatic transmission. The V6 has the choice of either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The V8 only comes in all-wheel drive.

Fuel economy figures for the FX are:

  • FX37 RWD: 17 City/24 Highway/19 Combined
  • FX37 AWD: 16 City/22 Highway/18 Combined
  • FX50: 14 City/20 Highway/16 Combined

Pricing for the 2013 Infiniti FX start at $44,950 for the FX37 RWD and goes all the way up to $61,500 for the FX50.
