      Not that Infiniti's naming system was especially memorable before...but now I really cannot recall which is which. Using just letters to denote hierarchy (as with MB or Lexus) or just numbers (as with BMW or Mazda) makes a certain amount of sense. Using letters *and* numbers in a seemingly random way...I just don't get the logic here. I'm sure somewhere there is a very convincing PowerPoint presentation about how this will emphasize segments and the overall value of the brand. Out in the real world, I don't think this will help, and it might hurt a little. Not much to say about the vehicles themselves, since basically nothing has changed but the names.

      Well, a RWD car-based crossover with 325hp and almost-G dynamics for $34k... is a pretty good deal, isn't it? Priced right there with a very lightly optioned BMW X1. If only Infiniti could easily fit a lower displacment engine in the QX50, like the Juke's 188hp 1.6 turbocharged engine, and sell it for something like $29k... it would be a killer proposition against the X1 and even the Buick Encore, and would surely put the crossover on consumer's radar after all these years.

      I really like the QX50. It never really found its sales niche and that's a shame, because it really is a awesome driving and performing vehicle. Its as close to a G37 wagon as you can get and they came pretty loaded with features compared to the BMW X3. I hope there is a 2nd gen.

        except the back seat has less leg room than the G37 coupe. So the EX35 is like a G37 wagon without the wagon space, and the mileage, and the larger more powerful engine, and without the features of a wagon like a lower ride height and additional length. Gee i wonder why it never sold.

          The rear seat accommodations and lack of space are really what makes this vehicle sit in no mans land. It definitely isn't a crossover, it isn't a hatchback, and it is a terrible wagon. It is in a class of its own and has no real customer base/target market. I don't think it is a bad vehicle at all, I've driven one, but I still don't really understand the point of it.

          1. The EX37 did indeed get the 3.7L VQ series engine, although late in its life cycle(Europe got it first)... Emphasis on the 37 in its name... 2. The EX37 was only .6 of an inch higher off the ground than a G37 sedan... pretty close to a wagon. Cant get too large, wouldn't want to compete with the FX37 parked across from it on the same lot. The EX37 or QX50, had its faults but it wasn't without its merits either. But at least you picked a name that seems fitting.

        The QX50 is a way underrated vehicle. People on this site like to bash it, but it'd be a nice car for someone without kids who likes to go skiing, especially with the price drop. Everyone here universally loves the Mazda CX-5, but this thing would blow it away in acceleration, luxury and possibly handling. (Yeah I know they are different classes of vehicles, but my point is this car is not complete garbage like some people think it is). It really needs the optional 19" wheels for it to look good though.

          How is it underrated? it is an OK car, but it is simply not competitive within its class. It is not in the same class of cars as the CX-5. Yes, it is faster, but it also has much worse mileage and much less interior space. More luxurious? I would hope so. It has to do something to command the $10K price premium.

          People with kids would hate the EX/QX50. Have you ever been inside of one? The back seats are USELESS for a "crossover" and the hatch is very small for what it is. I don't think the EX is garbage, but I think the execution was botched a bit and the target market wasn't clearly defined. That explains the sales numbers.

        i really love my EX. i don't believe it was meant as a family crossover - the J & Q are - well the old J & Q! i think it was meant as a city vehicle for people who no longer need a larger space. it's fun to drive and very reliable. since i do a lot of city driving, it's easy to maneuver, easier to park, & has enough back space when i need to throw something into it. i used to get a new vehicle every 3 years; the EX has become my 'keeper' since i took an early retirement. have had is for almost 5 years with only 1 real problem - a valet parker somehow bent the mechanism that controls the outside mirrors! my favorite tho was my FX. it was just an all around fun vehicle for me, but i didn't need the size anymore. yes, the mileage isn't 'great' to most people, but it is a high-performance engine that uses premium grade fuel, as do all Infiniti's, and most BMW's, Mercedes, Audi's, etc. gotta say, if you go into any 'luxury' vehicle not knowing this, you shouldn't buy one. what i was told when 1st going into luxury cars was "If you can't afford the gas, you can't afford the car."

        Being as close to a G37 wagon as you can get does not justify its existence. It is is not, by any stretch equivalent to a G37 (or Q whatever it is now) wagon. It lacks the performance, the looks, the mileage, and the interior space of a proper G37 wagon.

      The more I see the EX around the more I like it. It's a perfectly proportioned 5-door.

        As far as I know, the FX becomes the QX70. G sedan = Q50 G coupe = Q60 M = Q70 EX = QX50 JX = QX60 FX = QX70 QX = QX80
