Only slight increases in price have been announced for the 2010 Infiniti FX. Is it worth it?

Good news for those interested in buying a second-generation Infiniti FX.  Released as a 2010 model year vehicle, the crossover will see slight price increases for two version, and none for the third.

Infiniti bumped up the base price of the FX35 rear-wheel-drive to $42,400, up $250 over the 2009 model.  The all-wheel-drive version of the FX35 will cost $43,850, a $150 increase.  Those purchasing the high-end FX50 all-wheel-drive will pay $58,400, the same price as the 2009 model year vehicle.

The FX35 comes with a 303-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 engine, while the FX50 includes a 32-valve, 5.0-liter DOHC V8 that produces up to 390 hp.  The 2010 model year crossovers include a seven-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel disc brakes, and 21-inch aluminum-alloy Enkei wheels.  Bluetooth and USB support comes standard.  If you do not opt for the optional hard drive-based navigation system, you get the somewhat antiquated 2.0-gigabyte version of the Music Box hard drive MP3 player.  The Bose Premium Audio system does come standard.

The 2010 Infiniti FX35 and FX50 should go on sale in the coming weeks.
