What's New for JX35 in 2013

Launched in the spring of 2012, the 2013 JX35 has only one engine option: Nissan’s 3.5-liter DOHC V-6 with 265 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. There are only two models—front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive—but Infiniti has plenty of extra options available, including a backup collision-intervention system...more


Infiniti already had three utility vehicles, but that didn’t stop the company from adding a fourth, the JX crossover. Sizewise, the seven-passenger vehicle is flanked by Infiniti’s FX and QX. The FX and its smaller sibling, the EX, prioritize style over utility, and the QX is a powerful behemoth. That left a hole for a crossover that could compete with the Acura MDX, the Audi Q7, the BMW X5, and the Lincoln MKT. The JX is spacious inside with a passenger volume of 149.8 cubic feet, making it larger than the Lincoln MKT. The second-row seats slide fore and aft about six inches to provide reasonable legroom for both rows of rear seats. Cargo space increases when the third row is folded. Standard features include leather-appointed seating, heated front seats, keyless entry and ignition, a power liftgate, and a rearview camera. The JX shares its platform with the Nissan Murano and is fitted with the same V-6 and continuously variable transmission, making it the first Infiniti with front-wheel drive (four-wheel drive is an $1100 option) and a CVT. The transmission emphasizes fuel economy over performance; it has a sport mode that mimics a conventional transmission, but it’s not nearly as crisp or satisfying as Infiniti’s seven-speed automatic. The JX has style, practicality, and functionality and, more important, fills a void in Infiniti’s lineup.


Standard are ABS, stability and traction control, six air bags, and three-row side curtain air bags.
