2011 FX50 Overview

The Infiniti FX is a big crossover with sporty handling and responsive engines.Designed for performance and style, it avoids the boxy proportions of traditional SUVs.It offers some usable cargo space, but not as much back-seat room and cargo space as the boxier SUVs, in spite of its large size.

We find the wild styling appealing.Certainly, it's not bland.

And it runs like a bionic cheetah.The FX is based on the same platform as the Nissan Z and Infiniti G sports cars.All-wheel drive is available, but it's a rear-wheel-drive platform, meaning sporty.(Note the FX has nothing in common with the Nissan Murano, which is a front-wheel-drive vehicle built on an entirely different platform, a common misperception.) Primary competition for the Infiniti FX line comes from the rear-wheel-drive BMW X6, which comes at a higher price point.

The Infiniti FX35 comes with a 303-horsepower 3.5-liter V6, while the FX50 features a 390-hp 5.0-liter V8.Fuel economy for the FX35 is an EPA-estimated 16/23 mpg City/Highway; the FX35 AWD is rated 16/21 mpg, and the FX50 AWD is rated 14/20 mpg.

While the exterior styling of the FX is polarizing, its interior earns approval from most.Touring Package cars feature fine details, nicely stitched leather, wonderfully stained Maple wood, and matte-finish surfaces that provide a nice respite from the chrome-plated plastic in many other vehicles.

Technology abounds, including the Around View Monitor, which displays images of everything around the FX on the navigation display.Smart cruise control, voice-recognition navigation with real-time weather and traffic, rear-seat entertainment systems, and a host of electronics are available.

For 2011, changes are minor.A power rear liftgate is standard and the FX50 comes with 20-inch wheels and black lacquer cabin trim.The 21-inch wheels and Maple wood trim previously standard on FX50 are now optional, but even including them the price is about $400 lower.We think both of those moves are in the right direction.The Infiniti FX was all-new for 2009.
