Infiniti JX Press Release:
Today, Infiniti Canada announced that the newest addition to its lineup, the Infiniti JX luxury crossover, will make its Canadian debut at the 2012 Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS) in January. Canadian pricing for the all-new Infiniti JX will be announced at the press conference. In line with its expanded partnership with Red Bull racing, Infiniti will also display the championship-winning RB7 Formula 1 car in its booth at the MIAS.
"In January, Canadians will get an up-close look of the vehicle which will offer a bold new option in the luxury crossover segment," says Wendy Durward, Director of Infiniti Canada. "The new JX is a consummate blend of luxury, safety and convenience with power and performance. With its highly functional seven-passenger seating, the new Backup Collision Intervention technology, a powerful, yet efficient drivetrain, and the elegance and craftsmanship customary to Infiniti, this crossover adds an exciting alternative in this segment."
The all-new Infiniti JX is designed to excel in the areas that luxury crossover buyers desire most – interior flexibility and roominess, safety and advanced hospitality features. Inspired by versatility and convenience, the JX offers real 3rd row utility with easy-access due to 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.
The Infiniti JX continues Infiniti's tradition of developing world's first technologies, adding a new feature, Backup Collision Intervention (BCI), to the currently available Blind Spot Intervention™ (BSI) system. The addition of BCI is the latest of nine technologies that comprise the "All-around Safety Shield" of the new JX. Other available technology includes both Infiniti's Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) systems.
The AWD JX addresses the growing desire among luxury crossover drivers to have both responsive performance and good fuel efficiency. The standard 3.5-litre DOHC V6 is mated to a sport-tuned Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) to provide high responsiveness and seamless, efficient shifting feel. The engine is rated at 265 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm and 248 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm.
From the start of the 2011 Formula One season, Infiniti has been a major partner of the Red Bull Racing team, and is featured prominently on the race-winning RB7 driven by world champion and Infiniti Global Brand ambassador, Sebastian Vettel. Infiniti Canada is pleased to feature - for the first time at a Canadian auto show - the RB7 Formula 1 car in a unique exhibit at the 2012 MIAS.
"As the official partner for the Red Bull Formula 1 team, we were thrilled to see the team have a phenomenally successful season," says Durward. "The city of Montreal has a reputation of hosting the Canadian Grand Prix with an exceptional level of enthusiasm and excitement, and the Infiniti booth will offer Montreal auto show goers a unique, up-close-and-personal glimpse into the Championship Red Bull team with the official F1 car on prominent display."
