Found a good preview of the Infiniti JX that goes over almost all the info any potential buyer will be looking for. One thing they got wrong was pricing, we have a thread with the official Infinti JX pricing here... http://www.infinitijxforum.com/showthread.php/184-Infiniti-JX-Pricing-Thread?highlight=price

Infiniti JX Pricing starts at $41 400



Los Angeles, California – Infiniti introduced a new luxury crossover utility vehicle at the Los Angeles International Auto Show that will fit between the FX five-passenger crossover and the full-size QX, bringing the total number of crossovers and utility vehicles offered by the luxury manufacturer to four (EX, FX, JX and QX).

With the JX, Infiniti hopes to capture market share from competitors like Acura (MDX), Audi (Q7), BMW (X5), Lincoln (MKT) and Buick (Enclave) who offer mid-size utilities with three row seating, and arguably from Lexus and Mercedes-Benz: RX and M-class intenders who want more seating. To encourage buyers to switch to the Infiniti brand, the JX will offer an attractive combination of functional three-row seating, luxurious versatility and technically advanced comfort and convenience features.

The Infiniti JX has been designed around the concept that a vehicle with third row seating should actually be functional and not a “penalty box” for children and adults who pick the short straw. Rear seat access is made easy by second row seats that fold forward easily to allow access to a rear area with plenty of head room and leg room. Even when a second row seat is occupied by a child seat, it can be folded forward.



“With the new JX, you are able to leave a child seat securely latched to the second row while getting in or out of the third row – just another example of the vehicle’s inspired flexibility and versatility,” said Wendy Durward, Director of Infiniti Canada. “It might seem like a small detail, unless you’ve ever tried to use a third row in a vehicle with child seats, and then it’s ‘why didn’t someone think of this before?’”

Cargo carrying capacity and leg room is enhanced by nearly six inches of fore and aft travel for the 60/40 split second row seats. As well, the third row seat is split 50/50 and reclines for greater occupant comfort. A flat floor throughout the vehicle provides better leg room for everyone.

The new JX doesn’t compromise interior headroom despite a low roofline. The JX provides the benefits of a large family passenger vehicle without the usual exterior styling restrictions. Combining modern design that incorporates Infiniti’s new design language (and styling cues from the Infiniti Essence concept), the new JX exterior is highlighted by a dramatic, double-arch front grille and headlight shape, a double-wave hood, and crescent-cut D-pillar and greenhouse design. The JX stands out without trying to be something it’s not, with good visibility from every seat, easy entry to, and exit from, all rows, and practical access to the cargo area.



Notable exterior features include automatic on/off High Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-functional xenon headlights that feature manual levelizers and standard fog lights. Large LED taillights add a distinctive touch to the rear, while a standard power rear liftgate enhances utility. Stylish 18-inch split five-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels with 235/65R18-inch T-rated all-season tires are standard while 20-inch split five-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels or polished forged aluminum-alloy wheels and 235/55R20-inch H-rated all-season tires are also available.

A power sliding tinted glass moonroof with one-touch open/close, tilt feature and sliding sunshade is standard, while an available panoramic moonroof with power rear sunshade adds an open, airy feeling for rear passengers. The JX’s interior design is both luxurious and functional. Key features include Infiniti’s signature driver-oriented cockpit, thin chrome accents and soft finishers and satin pieces, and Wheat, Graphite or Java leather appointments. A maple trim package is available.

Standard luxury features include power rear lift gate, eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat and six-way power adjustable passenger seat, heated front row seats, heated leather-wrapped steering wheel with power tilt and telescopic adjustment and steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, “Fine Vision” electroluminescent gauges, six-speaker audio system with satellite radio and USB and auxiliary inputs, power windows with one-touch up and down, remote keyless entry and intelligent key push-button ignition, hands-free Bluetooth telephone connectivity and seven-inch colour information display.

With four optional packages available, buyers will be able to add even more luxury and technology with features such as a hard drive navigation system with eight-inch colour touch-screen display, Bluetooth streaming audio, Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection and front and rear sonar sensors, Bose 13 or 15-speaker sound systems, panoramic moonroof with power rear sunshade, advanced climate control system with auto recirculation, climate-controlled front seats and heated second row outboard seats, a theater package with dual seven-inch colour monitors and wireless headphones, Backup Collision Intervention, Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Brake Assist with Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Warning system, Distance Control Assistance, Active Trace Control, Eco Pedal, remote engine start, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention systems, Blind Spot Intervention system and front Pre-Crash Seatbelts.

It is a lengthy list of sophisticated technology. Notable for the JX is the introduction into the Infiniti line-up of Infiniti Connection and Infiniti Connection Plus services, which will be added to other Infiniti navigation-equipped models in the near future. Infiniti Connection services include 24-hour automatic crash notification, emergency call, enhanced roadside assistance, stolen vehicle reporting, remote door lock/unlock, alarm notification, maintenance alert, scheduled maintenance notification and ‘My Schedule’ (via Google Calendar).

The system also allows owners to set up Drive Zone boundaries and Speed Alert, which parents will find useful in monitoring young drivers’ vehicle usage. Infiniti Connection will send a notification via text, e-mail or phone if the boundary has been crossed or the speed exceeded. In addition, owners can route road trips with a Journey Planner and personalize news, sports and stock reports via Mobile Information Services. Both Infiniti Connection and Infiniti Connection Plus are included complimentary for the first year of ownership.

The Infiniti JX also marks the first implementation on any vehicle, not just Infiniti, of Back-up Collision Intervention. With this system, the JX will help the driver detect crossing vehicles and objects behind the JX, and, if necessary, the system can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision. The innovative system can detect vehicles approaching from either side when in Reverse. If a vehicle appears to be entering the vehicle’s path, it provides three layers of warning – visual, audio and gas pedal force feedback – and ultimately can apply brake pressure to help avoid a collision if the driver doesn’t take action.

The new crossover will be powered by a 3.5-litre V6, rated at 265 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Fuel economy is expected to be rated at 10.3 L/100 km highway and 13.8 L/100 km city. The CVT can mimic a step transmission when the Sport mode of the Infiniti drive selector is engaged. Using a rotary switch mounted in the center console, the driver can choose between four drive modes – Standard, Sport, Eco and Snow – depending on road and climate conditions. The system varies throttle response and shift schedules to optimize performance.

The Infiniti JX will go on sale in the spring of 2012 as a 2013 model. While pricing will be announced likely at the Montreal or Toronto auto shows, expect starting MSRPs in the $49,000 – $51,000.
