Roadfly.com – 2011 Infiniti FX50 S Road Test & Review

For 2011, Infiniti has upgraded their flagship SUV, the FX50 with a few choice features. The wheelbase has been lengthened by 1.4 inches, but more significantly, the engine is now an all-new 4.5-liter V8 engine that boosts horsepower up by 70 from last year’s model bringing the grand total to 370. If you’re looking for smooth acceleration and accessible power behind the wheel of your sport utility vehicle, the FX50 is tough automobile to beat.

The interior is beautiful and features many complementary amenities; there is a 11-speaker Bose sound-system which includes XM satellite radio and a navigation screen that offers real-time traffic info and voice-recognition software. Couple this with one of the best safety-ratings in its class and an intelligent Brake Assist system capable of automatically braking your vehicle in emergencies, and you have standard a package that will fit any need of your driving experience.

Starting at $56,950 and with an as tested price of $63,000, the Infiniti FX50 doesn’t come cheap. But once you step inside, take it for a drive and become immersed in the luxury and performance, you’ll know where every penny of that pricetag went: into a remarkable driving experience that exemplifies Infiniti’s commitment to superior automobiles.

Written by Roadfly Charlie

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
