The design intention was simple: mix together equal parts power and grace. Throw in ample amounts of luxury and cutting-edge technology. Top with signature Infiniti style. The result – the second-generation Infiniti FX, which enters its second year of production in 2010 as one of the most radical expressions of sport and utility prowling the streets today.

2010 Infiniti FX: 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 V62010 Infiniti FX: 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

Both engines are paired with a standard 7-speed automatic transmission featuring Adaptive Shift Control (ASC). Solid magnesium paddle shifters are available on the FX50.

The FX is also offered with available 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 and 21-inch super lightweight aluminum-alloy wheels designed by Enkei.

Inside, the FX interior provides a warm, inviting environment highlighted by a driver-oriented cockpit with intuitive controls, available sport seating and advanced audio, navigation and technology ranging from an 11-speaker Bose?-developed audio system to Infiniti Intelligent Key, available Intelligent Cruise Control (Full Speed Range) and available Around View Monitor system.

The FX offers an array of advanced technology systems. Distance Control Assist (DCA) helps reduce the burden of driving in heavy traffic by intuitively prompting the driver to release the throttle and apply the brakes to maintain distance to the vehicle ahead. Also available is a Lane Departure Warning/Lane Departure Prevention system, which helps the driver keep the vehicle in its travel lane. Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) alerts the driver that a collision may be imminent and provides automatic emergency braking to help reduce the risk of injury should a crash occur.

For 2010, FX offers revised option package selections and content, including standard Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System on all models, the addition of a USB Connection Port with Infiniti Interface System for iPod® on all models, the addition of a 2GB Music Box hard drive to the Bose® Premium Audio system on vehicles without the Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation system, the addition of Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, XM NavWeather® (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and Zagat® Restaurant Guide features to the Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation system and simplified exterior/interior color combinations.
