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.
Infiniti's FX35 and FX45 crossover SUVs actually look more like sports cars than light-duty trucks. The racy FX twins definitely know how to stand out in a crowd, but their flashy design sometimes places form over function. The rear hatch opening, for example, is rather small and there is not much cargo space behind the second-row seats. Narrow side glass and a small rear window create large blind spots, although the standard RearView Monitor helps alleviate this concern. If you can live with these minor shortcomings, the FXs' impressive handling and brutally quick acceleration make them the ideal performance crossovers, with expressive exteriors that can definitely turn heads.
