With a 390-hp V8 in the FX50s and 329-hp V6 in the FX37, it’s not whether you feel its power, it’s how deeply you’re moved by it. Peerlessly crafted and impressively applied, the performance of the Infiniti FX is as immediate as its commanding horsepower. That power is amplified by the endless sense of acceleration in the trademark Infiniti acceleration swell, making driving the FX a thrilling experience and an engineering achievement. Yet the thrill is nicely balanced by a sense of purpose. Delivering improved fuel efficiency and an enhanced response, the innovative, more efficient VVEL engine in the FX offers a practical nod to the captivating experience of luxury performance.
Infiniti’s first 7-speed automatic transmission is engineered to provide a deeper, more resonant feeling to your driving experience. Before reaching full acceleration, Adaptive Shift Control recognises your driving style and road conditions, smoothing out your ride and improving shift consistency, enhancing engine efficiency without compromising power. Adding additional punch when you want it most, 6th gear breaks free from the conventions. Still, just like any other gear, if you need to tap your stunning, steering column–mounted magnesium paddle shifters for a downshift, Downshift Rev Matching kicks in to give the engine a higher rev. Providing you with a better road response, as you return momentarily to lower gears. By 7th gear, you’ve discovered improved acceleration, increased driving pleasure, a more comfortable ride and the optimised design of a supremely well-crafted transmission.
True performance means not having to sacrifice control. Responsive Intelligent AWD instantly adapts to the changing conditions of the road. The system actively adjusts the balance of power between the front and the rear wheels, giving you all-wheel-drive traction when you need it and rear-wheel-drive handling when you don’t.
Continuous Damping Control (CDC®) helps optimise ride and handling. Electronic sensors measure body, wheel and lateral acceleration, sending the information to individual shocks, resulting in better control, sharper handling on corners and a smoother drive. The Infiniti FX is the only crossover with Rear Active Steer to help maximise handling responsiveness. Reacting to steering input and vehicle speed, the system steers the rear wheels, enabling the vehicle to track more quickly and precisely where directed. The result is a sharper response on winding roads and more confident handling on the highway.
