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.
