From Nissan press: The Infiniti FX, one of those rare vehicles that is equally seductive whether in motion or standing still, enters the third year of its second-generation design in 2011 with a number of refinements and its performance spirit firmly intact. As one of the most radical expressions of sport and utility prowling the streets today, FX is again available with a choice of a 390-horsepower 5.0-liter 32-valve DOHC V8 engine with VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift) or with a 303-horsepower 3.5-liter 24-valve DOHC V6 engine. Both engines are paired with a standard 7-speed automatic transmission featuring Adaptive Shift Control (ASC).
The FX is also offered with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (standard on FX50), double-wishbone front/multi-link rear suspension and large 4-wheel disc brakes, along with available Continuous Damping Control (CDC®), Rear Active Steer, Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) and 21-inch lightweight aluminum-alloy wheels.
Enhancements to the FX for the 2011 model year include: the addition of standard power rear liftgate on all models (late availability); the previous Navigation Package content is added to the Premium Package on FX35 (Premium Package content comes standard on FX50); a new Deluxe Touring Package for the FX50, with Maple interior accents, 21-inch wheels and tires and aluminum pedal accents; black lacquer interior trim is now standard on FX50; and one new color, Malbec Black, is added to FX’s exterior color palette.
As a showcase of Infiniti’s groundbreaking technology capabilities, the FX offers available Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA), Distance Control Assist (DCA), Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), and the Around View® Monitor (AVM) – which provides a virtual 360° view of objects around the vehicle, helping to maneuver it in tight spots.
The 2011 FX is offered in three models: FX50 AWD with 5.0-liter V8, FX35 AWD with 3.5-liter V6 and FX35 RWD with 3.5-liter V6.
