Infiniti QX70

Motor vehicle

The Infiniti QX70, formerly called the Infiniti FX until , is a mid-size luxurycrossover SUV produced by the Nissan-owned Infiniti luxury vehicle brand between and The FX replaced the QX4 as Infiniti's mid-size SUV. It shares the same FM platform as the rear-wheel driveNissan Z, and it "made no claims of climbing mountains." Rather, its aggressive shape promised style and quick handling.[2] The similarly sized Nissan Murano is based on the same D platform as the front-wheel driveNissan Altima. The FX does not have a Nissan-branded equivalent, and is not sold in Japan.

The FX introduced its second generation for the model year as the FX35 and FX

First generation (S50; )[edit]

Motor vehicle

The nameplates FX35 and FX45 refer to the two available engines. The FX35 is available in two drivetrains, the RWD and the AWD, which are both fitted to a dual overhead cam liter valve V6 VQ35DE gasoline engine, with aluminum-alloy block and heads, electronically controlled throttle system, and low-friction molybdenum-coated pistons that makes use of the continuous variable valve timing which in part optimizes the opening of intake valves. This is also coupled with an electronically controlled super-wide ratio five-speed automatic with a manumatic shift mode that includes the option of sequentially selected manual gearshifts and downshift rev matching.

The AWD FX45 incorporates a liter (4, cc) valve V8 DOHC VK45DE gasoline engine with four valves per cylinder, microfinished camshafts with aluminum-alloy block and heads, low-friction molybdenum-coated pistons, titanium intake and exhaust valves, modular cylinder heads, microfinished crankshaft, lightweight pistons, super-silent single stage cam drive chain, and a Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System that optimizes opening of intake valves. Development began in under newly appointed CEO Carlos Ghosn's NRP. Design work was completed in rapid succession in , for late production. Designed prior to that, earlier on in under the "Bionic Cheetah" theme, the Infiniti FX45 Concept was introduced at the NAIAS in January From mid, a new concept based on the production design was developed and completed in late Sketches were first released in late November The second-generation FX45 Concept was introduced in January at the NAIAS '02 as a thinly-veiled production FX (S50) and planned production was announced for early In January , the FX45 made its debut at the NAIAS and went on sale January 24, [4][5][6][7][8]

In for the model, changes were the addition of a standard eight-way power front passenger seat that replaced the previous four-way design, the availability of aluminum roof rails and chrome-plated inch wheels. Also new were a dark silver metallic finish for the inch wheels (non-chrome-plated), the addition of a standard HVAC filter for all models and the addition of a new Snow-Mode function.[9][10]

In September for the model year, the FX range received enhancements such as lane departure warning (LDW) system that helps alert drivers to an unintended movement of the vehicle out of a designated traffic lane. Infiniti's system monitored the lane markings to alert passengers via an audible buzzer that the driver is drifting unintentionally. The LDW system, which utilize a small camera, speed sensor, an indicator and an audible warning buzzer, was offered on models. The Infiniti FX was the first passenger vehicle to offer a lane departure warning system in the United States market.[11] In addition to LDW, the Infiniti FX range was now equipped with standard roof-mounted curtain supplemental curtain airbags with rollover protection for front and rear outboard seat occupants.

Other changes included the addition of dark chrome grille, headlight and clear taillight accents to the FX45 (also available as part of the V6 Sport Package on FX35 models), a new key fob design for the Infiniti Intelligent Key system and two new exterior colors, Sapphire and Sheer Platinum. Interior changes included a new standard etched aluminum trim.[10][12]

Total sales of the FX45 were 1, units, about a tenth of the FX35s.[13]

facelift[edit]

The FX series was updated for the model year with new options and standard features. The updates included an exterior facelift with new grille, bumper, wheel design and three new exterior colors, and inside a revised center console with new color screen. Many features previously optional were made standard, including the watt Bose audio system, RearView Monitor, 7-inch color display, Advanced Air Bag System (AABS), leather seating surfaces with heated front seats, ten-way power driver's seat with power lumbar support and eight-way power passenger's seat.

The FX45 featured additional upgrades, including new inch wheels, leather-appointed seats, a revised sport-tuned four-wheel independent suspension with new dampers, a Bluetooth system, and the Premium Package became standard. Sales began in January , after production commencement in November Production of the S50 ended in February

Second generation (S51; )[edit]

Motor vehicle

Initial release[edit]

FX35, FX50[edit]

FX30d S (Germany; pre-facelift)

The redesigned Infiniti FX was officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on March 4, , and went on sale in June The V6 model was still called FX35 with the VQ35HR V6, but the V8 model was renamed FX50 in recognition of its 5-liter engine, the newly developed VK50VE.[17]

The exterior retained some of the first generation's "Bionic Cheetah" look and "giant scarab" profile, while incorporating new styling cues. Features of the new design included longer, shark-like sculpted headlights, a large trapezoidal grille filled with horizontal dark-chrome waves, and functional side air vents. The overall size and dimensions of the new model, both external and internal, remained similar to the previous model.

The interior was completely redesigned to bring the FX up to the level of luxury found inside of other Infiniti models like the G37 and EX[18] Features included stitched leather seats, stained maple wood or piano black finishes, and matte-finish surfaces.

Front suspension was a new double-wishbone design, similar to that found on the G37 and EX35; this replaced the previous generation FX's front strut-type suspension. The suspension's upper and lower A-arms were designed to improve control of a wheel's motion, especially when the suspension compresses and extends, providing more travel than the previous strut design. The body was also designed to be times more torsionally rigid and times more resistant to bending than the previous model. All Wheel Drive (AWD) was standard, and notably, Infiniti's AWD system always engages a power split when stationary, ensuring maximum off-the line traction at all times. Up to percent of the engines power can be sent to the rear wheels when needed, with a maximum of 50 percent available to the front.[19]

FX37 (Europe)[edit]

A Europe-specific FX37 was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, and went on sale in Europe in October, with the VQ37VHR. Europeans get the hp FX37 as their entry level model instead of the FX35, which will be available in FX37 GT and FX37S versions. The FX37 GT came equipped with inch alloy wheels, power and heated/ventilated front seats, adaptive xenon headlamps, parking camera sensors, all-wheel-drive, and a 7-speed automatic with paddle shifting. The FX37S added inch alloy wheels, Continuous Damping Control, and sports seats.

FX30d turbo diesel (Europe)[edit]

A Europe-specific FX30d was released in late , powered by a new liter V6 turbodiesel V9X Engine. The engine was developed by the Renault-Nissan Alliance, and will also power the EX and M models.

This engine, which is the first diesel in Infiniti's history, was specifically designed to deliver high levels of refined performance in line with Infiniti philosophy. Although a V8 diesel engine was entertained, the V6 format was selected early on as the ideal layout for the unit, providing the optimum balance between overall performance and refinement.

The engine produces a total of &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque. Peak torque can be achieved from as low as 1, rpm and is available all the way to 2, rpm, while as much as &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) is available from a mere 1, rpm. Idle speed is an exceptionally low rpm with none of the noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) usually associated with a diesel.

Equipment[edit]

Standard comfort features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a premium speaker, watt Bose stereo with in-dash 6 CD changer and 2GB hard drive, steering wheel mounted audio controls, premium leather seating surfaces, heated front bucket seats, heated power mirrors, way power driver seat w/ lumbar adjustment, 8-way power passenger seat, individual driver memory system (drivers seat, side mirrors, and steering wheel positions), RearView back-up camera, UV reflective glass, and Infiniti's Intelligent Key system. The Intelligent Key design from the first generation FX now incorporates a Push Button Ignition system. With this system, the driver does not have to remove keys to drive the vehicle; a simple electronic fob carried on the driver allows the driver to lock/unlock and start the vehicle keyless.

Other standard features include Scratch Shield paint (first introduced on the Infiniti EX), black lacquer interior trim, high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps, LED brake lamps, point sequential welcome lighting, electronic liftgate closure assist, automatic dimming rear-view mirror with compass, glass moonroof, rear privacy glass, integrated rear spoiler, and dual chrome exhaust tips.

Standard safety features include dual front air bags, side impact airbags, and rear curtain airbags with rollover sensor, as well as Zone Body construction with front and rear crumple zones.

Options include Infiniti's Hard Drive Navigation with touch screen and 3D building images, All-Around View Monitor (first introduced on the Infiniti EX) which displays a virtual bird's-eye view of the vehicle and surroundings to aide in parking, and Intelligent Cruise Control, which provides the benefits of standard cruise control with the ability to add speed and distance intervals, as well as automatically slowing the vehicle in slowing traffic to help provide a safe distance. When traffic flow ahead speeds up, Intelligent Cruise Control then reaccelerates to the preset speed and distance settings. Optional industry-first Distance Control Assist intuitively helps the driver release the throttle and apply the brakes as needed in slowing traffic. Another option, Forward Collision Warning uses the Intelligent Cruise system's laser rangefinder to alert the driver of a potential collision, and if the driver does not respond, Brake Assist automatically engages the brakes to help reduce collision speed and impact. The Premium Package adds heated and cooled front seats, a power adjustable steering wheel, iPod integration system, folding outdoor mirrors, and aluminum paddle shifters to adjust the gears when using the manual shift mode.

Transmission and drivetrain[edit]

All FX models came standard with Infiniti's new 7-speed automatic transmission, which was also introduced on the G37 coupe.

The FX35 (U.S.) is available in both rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configuration, while the FX35 (Canada), FX37 (Europe) and FX50 (all) come standard with all-wheel drive. The FX uses Nissan's ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system.

All FX50 models ordered with the Sport package (FX50S) come equipped with Active Steering package. This package features a planetary gearset on the steering shaft (similar to BMW), that varies the steering ratio between and The package also includes a rear-wheel steering system that induces up to one degree of steer to the rear wheels, to provide increased handling response for the vehicle.

The term crossover vehicle covers a lot of ground these days, and the Infiniti FX35 shows how far that idiom is being pushed. Typical crossovers are vehicles such as the Toyota RAV4 or Honda Pilot-they're based on car platforms and lack the low-range transfer cases and robust Paris-Dakar durability of truck-based SUVs, but they wear truckish, blocky sheetmetal.

You sure can't say that about this Infiniti FX Yes, at inches high, it does stand some seven inches taller than a Ford Taurus station wagon. And at inches long, it is about eight inches shorter than the Taurus wagon. So the FX does possess proper SUV proportions.

It looks brawny as well, but in the bulging, muscular fashion of a Dodge Viper rather than the square-shouldered idiom of a Caterpillar tractor. Moreover, its greenhouse is tidy, rakish, and sleek, and this particular FX35 didn't even have four-wheel drive. Instead, it funneled every bit of its horsepower to its rear tires.

Like its bigger brother, the FX45, which is the quickest non-turbocharged SUV we've ever tested, the FX35 is geared purely for grappling with the pavement. Although it wears standard inch tires instead of the 20s found on the 45 (20s are optional on the FX35), the /60VR Bridgestone Potenza RE92s provide sufficient grip for the FX to corner at g and stop from 70 mph in feet. Makes it easy to believe the FX chassis is related to the FM platform used by the Nissan Z and Infiniti G

Equipped with Nissan's ubiquitous liter V-6, which develops horsepower in this iteration, the FX35's pace is surprisingly close to that of the FX45, which has a much more powerful hp V We measured the sprint to 60 in seconds and the quarter-mile in seconds at 91 mph ( and in the FX45). Top speed was an ungoverned mph, enough to see off most expensive German sedans with their mph governors.

Some of this fleetness comes from the FX35's pound curb weight, which is down nearly pounds from the FX45's with its V-8 and four-wheel-drive system. With a manual-override-equipped five-speed automatic, the FX35 is a swift and responsive tool for the cut and thrust of urban traffic.

Although your line of sight is about half a foot less elevated than in most mid-size SUVs, the driver still sits high enough to see over the roofs of most sedans during the bumper-to-bumper grind. And the FX's taut chassis facilitates the rapid lane changes and instant acceleration needed to progress through the rush-hour pack.

In fact, we're surprised at how closely the performance of the FX35's chassis mimics the 45's, despite less rubber. Although peak grip is down g, the sharp steering and the athletic moves remain. So does the larger FX's hard ride. You'll feel every zit in the pavement, and even the shallowest speed bump will have you rocking and rolling. Infiniti calls the FX the sports car of SUVs, and the taut suspension does not belie that claim.

Inside, the FX35 carries over the posh accommodations of its bigger brother. The level of standard equipment is high, with dual power front seats, a stereo with an in-dash six-CD changer, high-intensity-discharge headlights, and a inch LCD screen to display vehicle information. Our car was equipped with the Premium package, which added $ to the $34, base price and included leather upholstery, front-seat heaters, a power-adjustable steering wheel, and an upgraded Bose stereo. Optional roof rails added $, for a vehicle total of $37,

The cockpit glitters with aluminum accents and uses soft materials where your elbows touch the door panels and armrests. The FX35 interior is also plenty roomy for front and rear passengers, Infiniti having given up a bit of luggage room by moving the rear seat far enough aft to expand rear legroom. Fold down the 60/40 split-folding rear seat-an act simplified by the remote releases near the tailgate-and you end up with a cavernous space for your next large-screen TV.

Although many SUVs are correctly criticized for their unfavorable ratio of weight to carrying capacity, the FX35 is actually moderately efficient. Compared with the Mercury Marauder sedan, for example, the FX35 provides more interior volume, equal performance, more luxurious accommodations, and greater versatility in a package that is more than 20 inches shorter, inches narrower, and pounds lighter-for about the same price. Call it a crossover. Call it a tall wagon. Call it whatever. We call it pretty good.

Key Features & Specs View full specs EPA Classification

The size class is determined by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The size class for cars is determined by the interior passenger and cargo volumes. The size class for trucks is defined by the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), which is the weight of the vehicle and its carrying capacity.

Mid-Size Station Wagon MPG/MPGe

EPA estimates for fuel efficiency (measured on a mile-per-gallon basis) are based on laboratory tests conducted by manufacturers according to federal regulations. EPA re-tests about 10% of vehicle models to confirm manufacturers’ results.

22 Highway / 16 City Engine

An engine’s displacement is the total volume of the engine’s combustion chambers, a rough index of the engine’s size and power. This is typically measured in liters (L, for example), though sometimes it is expressed in cubic inches. I-4 and V-6 refer to the configuration and number of cylinders.

Gas V6 L/ cu in Transmission

The transmission adapts the output of the engine to the drive wheels. Transmissions usually have multiple gear ratios (“gears”) with the ability to switch between them as speed varies (6 gear ratios = “6 Speed”). Transmissions must either be controlled manually by the driver (“Manual Transmission”) or automatically by the vehicle (“Automatic Transmission”). One type of Automatic Transmission is the Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT) which doesn’t have a fixed number of gears.

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't % safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.
