The all-new Infiniti JX is about to shake up the status quo when the innovative 7-passenger/3-row luxury crossover joins the Infiniti lineup in spring 2012 as a 2013 model.

The 2013 Infiniti JX made its world debut today at the Los Angeles Auto Show and is offered in two models, the Infiniti JX35 FWD and Infiniti JX35 AWD. Each model is equipped with a 265-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine and Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport mode.

The new luxury Infiniti JX is designed to excel in the areas that luxury crossover buyers desire most – interior flexibility and roominess, safety, and advanced hospitality features. The JX offers real 3-row utility, plus all the premium features, performance and innovations that Infiniti has become known for worldwide.

Key features of the 2013 Infiniti JX include:

  • Emotive styling and craftsmanship, featuring the new Infiniti design language direction initiated with the Essence concept
  • Segment-leading overall passenger volume
  • Segment-leading rear cargo volume (3rd row seats folded, 2nd row seats in forward-most slide position)
  • More 2nd and 3rd row legroom than a Cadillac Escalade
  • Access to 3rd row without removing a 2nd row child seat
  • Infiniti Connection with Google Calendar™, Drive Zone/Speed Alert and Infiniti Personal Assistant
  • Around View™ Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection
  • Extensive safety and security technologies, including available world’s first Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) system
  • Available Bose® Cabin Surround® 15-speaker sound system with digital 5.1-channel decoding and a new Acoustic Waveguide subwoofer

Along with its standout styling and craftsmanship, the breakthrough JX design offers excellent legroom in all three rows and ample cargo room behind the 3rd row. In addition, an innovative multi-mode middle seat design provides entry to the 3rd row without removing a 2nd row child seat.

The JX also 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. With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, 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.

Among the other advanced standard or available technology found throughout the new JX are Infiniti ConnectionTM with Google CalendarTM, Drive Zone/Speed Alert and Infiniti Personal Assistant; Around View™ Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD); Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP); Blind Spot Intervention™ (BSI) system; Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range); Distance Control Assist (DCA); Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW); Active Trace Control; Front Pre-Crash Seat Belts; and a Bose® Cabin Surround® 15-speaker sound system with digital 5.1-channel decoding and new Acoustic Waveguide subwoofer.

The engine is rated at 265 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm and 248 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm. The design includes a variable induction control system to improve volumetric efficiency at low and middle speed ranges, while an efficient belt layout improves maintenance and fuel economy. Fuel economy is expected to be rated at 23 mpg Highway, 17 mpg City and a real-world 19 mpg Combined – while still offering the power to carry a full load or passengers and cargo.

The Infiniti Personal Assistant benefit is offered free-of-charge for four years with every 2012 Infiniti. It allows owners to make reservations, get directions, find points of interest, make dinner reservations, access gift services, answer trivia questions, and receive a wide variety of other services at the touch of a button from inside the vehicle or through the owner’s mobile or home phone. On vehicles equipped with Infiniti Connection, owners can have their Infiniti Personal Assistant find a restaurant, make the reservation, and have directions sent directly to their JX’s Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System.
