KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 10/19/2012


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.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you enjoy combining striking style and serious performance with a modicum of utility, the FX Infiniti delivers on that promise, and does so at a price well below its German competition.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Those seeking a reasonable balance of "sport" and "utility" may be disappointed in the 2013 Infiniti FX, as its utility is compromised in favor of sporting attributes and strong design.

What's New for 2013

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.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2013 Infiniti FX's exterior shape sacrifices some utility in the name of sporting character, and the rest of the vehicle does the same. Even at its most opulent, the FX50 all-wheel driver (AWD) carries but 53 percent of its approximately 4,500 pounds on the front end – not a lot by sport-utility standards. A balanced chassis plus all-independent suspension and lively powertrains, all tuned for stability and response rather than quiet comfort, make for a fine-handling car, never mind it's a sport-utility vehicle. The new 325-horsepower V6 is plenty capable and the 390-hosepower 5.0 V8 feels downright fast. The 7-speed automatic has an effective manual-shift mode than includes a nice throttle blip on downshifts. With over seven inches of ground clearance you can certainly get to the trailhead, though you may not want to carry on into the rocks and creek beds.

Favorite Features

3.7-LITER DOHC V6
Nissan's all-aluminum, 4-valve-per-cylinder V6 has long been a sweetheart of an engine. The larger 3.7-liter version (already used in the Infiniti G, Nissan Z and others) carries on the tradition, with even more power and efficiency to go with its smooth, free-revving character.

IN-YOUR-FACE SHEETMETAL
Rarely does a big car company embrace a love-it-or-leave-it exterior design, but Infiniti went all in with the original styling of the FX. Some restraint – and with it, more elegance – has crept in with the intervening facelifts, but the 2013 Infiniti FX is still a powerful aesthetic statement.
