Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The Infiniti FX35 becomes the FX37 for 2013, as a more advanced, more powerful and more efficient 3.7-liter V6 replaces the former 3.5. A new Moving Object Detection capability is added to the Around View Monitor system. And a Limited Edition trim (550 units) of the FX37 is also available.
For 2012 the Infiniti FX has a new front grille and fascia inspired, we're told, by Infiniti's Essence Concept. There's a new FX35 Limited Edition, built atop the FX35 all-wheel drive (AWD) platform; and new wheel designs, a new color and a slight remixing of option packages sum up the substantive changes for this model year.
Newly added standard equipment for 2010 includes Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, a USB port and iPod interface and the addition of 2GB hard drive to the standard Bose audio system. Bluetooth Streaming Audio, XM NavWeather and Zagat Restaurant Guide have all been added to the available navigation system.
From a distance you can still make out the familiar silhouette, but draw nearer and the changes to the totally redesigned 2009 FX become clearer. Beyond its wild grille and headlamp treatment, chrome side fender vents and racy wheels, there's a new 5.0-liter V8 engine, prompting the FX50 nameplate.
When introduced in early 2003 the Infiniti FX brought to the market an over-the-top look that was unlike any sport-utility-type vehicle previously available, stressing as it did sporting performance and expressive style over the utility of passenger and cargo accommodation. After two facelifts, the most recent just last year, the 2013 Infiniti FX37 and FX50 have gained a little more elegance and perhaps more restrained lines (or have we grown used to them?), but they continue to be more about a bold look with a driving experience to match than dutifully transporting lots of people and their gear. The FX qualifies as a sport-utility vehicle, but it is clearly more sport than utility.

"Great performce, don't have to bottom out that accelerator to get by anyone. Zoom Zoom is no comparison. Great progressive styling, catches everyones eye. Milage is better then any in class (other then those hybrids). If you want that typical boxy SUV/Crossover look this is not the vehicle for you. Owned just over a year now and have not yet been disappointed for turning down Lexus, BMW, Accura, Mercedes and all those other lesser vehicles in the market."

"If you are looking for an SUV that drives like a sports car you need an Infiniti FX. I have never been so impressed with a vehicle. I see a lot of reviews chastising the FX for lacking the same level of utility as its competitors, but I've never had my passengers complain about lacking space and moving down the seats means that I've also never had a problem with cargo either. I feel that what the FX lacks in utility it double makes up for with the way it drives. You put your foot down and the vehicle blasts off-- Amazing. If you are skeptical GO TEST DRIVE ONE."

"I bought the 2011 Infiniti FX35/ w Premium Package and blue slate for a great price. The car is very fast, 5.8 seconds 0-60. The car has an amazing sound and a smooth transmission. The ride is super nice, and so is the user interface. All the controls are intuitive. The 360 camera helps in tight parking spaces. The fit and finish is at it's best. The leather has a great smell (after 2 years ith still smells like a brand new vehicle). The car has a very eye-catching design."
