Although the CAR crew seems to have the inside line on Audi's future releases, with its recent spate of "official" images posted earlier this week, Top Speed was able to procure some details about Infiniti's new FX-series crossover.
The artist depiction shows a revised front end that draws cues from the new G-series sedan, with more tautly drawn headlamps flanking a revised grille and more muscular front fenders. However, everything aft of the A-pillar appears to carry over from the current model -- pretty much what we've expected.

More important than the exterior changes is what lies underhood, and according to Top Speed the new FX will come equipped with either the new 3.7-liter VQ V6 or a 5-liter V8, producing 390 HP and 369 lb.-ft. of torque. Naturally, the new models' badging will reflect their newfound power: FX37 and FX50, respectively.

Beyond the upgraded powerplants, expect the new FX to come equipped with a back-up camera, radar-assisted cruise control and mirrors that will automatically adjust when the seating position is changed.

Although Top Speed simply cites an internal source for all these details, most of the information seems entirely plausible. We'll just have to wait until next year, when Infiniti pulls the cover off of the new FX in Geneva for confirmation.

      Speculation is indeed the right word for this.

      Speculation indeed - the picture uses both "Infiniti" and "Infinity"...very interesting

      5 Litre V8 sounds really interesting.

      "Beyond the upgraded powerplants, expect the new FX to come equipped with a back-up camera, radar-assisted cruise control and mirrors that will automatically adjust when the seating position is changed.

      The current models already have all of the above. Backup camera was mandatory in 2007. Radar cruise was an option that most of them had (part of teh tech package IIRC). the only one I'm not 100% sure of is the mirrors, but I believe the memories store the seat position, mirror positions, and steering column position (as the whole thing, including gauges, moves up and in when the "SUV" is turned off)."

      Not quite. The backup camera became standard in '06, NOT '07. And the ICC (Intelligent Cruise Control) is laser based, NOT radar based. As for the automatic entry/exit feature, not only does the entire steering wheel and gauge cluster move up before you enter/exit the vehicle, but the seat moves back as well.

      The FX is what the Porsche Cayenne always should have looked like, instead of the bloated mess it is.

      Wait, so the artist can't spell Infiniti?

      The FX is ahead of its time. Competitors are copying its styling cues. Styling changes should be minimal and evolutionary.

      Is this this the Ex concept or just a new version of the current Fx model?

      No stick no sale. Anybody knows if manual is in the works?
