The 2013 Infiniti JX seven-passenger crossover joins the Infiniti lineup in spring 2012. The highlight for the new Infiniti JX exterior design include double-arch front grille/headlamp shape, double wave hood and crescent cut D-pillar as well as greenhouse design. Automatic on/off High Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-functional xenon headlights with manual levelizers are standard, along with fog lights. Large LED taillights add a distinctive touch to the rear, while a standard power rear liftgate enhances utility. Other Infiniti JX exterior highlights include flat blade variable intermittent front windshield wipers, available rain-sensing front windshield wipers, rear window intermittent wiper and defroster with timer, power folding heated outside mirrors with available reverse tilt-down feature, front door handle courtesy lights, and UV-reducing solar glass and rear privacy glass.
Exterior color choices available for the new Infiniti JX include the exclusive Emerald Graphite, Glacial Mist and Diamond Slate, along with Liquid Platinum, Black Obsidian, Midnight Garnet and Moonlight White.
Inside, the Infiniti JX comes with nearly 6 inches of second row seat travel. The 3rd row isn’t the typical penalty box either, with ample headroom and knee room for adults or children. And there are two more unexpected aspects of Infiniti JX’s 2nd and 3rd row design – access to the 3rd row is surprisingly easy due to the wide door openings and long forward slide of the 2nd row seat. Plus, the multi-mode 2nd row seat’s unique forward movement function overcomes the typical problem of having to remove a 2nd row child seat for entry or exit.
Other interior features for the new Infiniti JX include the driver-oriented cockpit, thin chrome accents, and an interior color palette that provides an elegant color harmony – Wheat, Graphite or Java leather appointments with Kasane Washi trim or available Maple trim accents.
Offered in both FWD and with Intelligent AWD, the standard engine for the Infiniti JX is the 3.5 liter DOHC V6 produces power of 265 hp at 6,400 rpm and 248 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,400 rpm with projected fuel economy pf 23 mpg highway and 17 mpg city. The engine is mated to a sport tuned CVT to provide high responsiveness and seamless.
The new Infiniti JX also comes with the Infiniti Drive Mode Selector, a technology that allows the driver to choose between four drive modes; standard, Sport, Eco and Snow mode. Responsive handling and flat ride comfort is provided by an independent strut front and multi-link rear suspension with front and rear stabilizer bars.
