Infiniti makes its first entry into the growing 7-passenger luxury crossover segment with unveiling the JX luxury crossover today at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The all-new Infiniti JX is designed to excel in interior flexibility and roominess, safety, and advanced hospitality features. It offers 3-row utility, excellent legroom in all three rows and ample cargo room behind the 3rd row, plus all the premium features, performance and innovations that Infiniti is known for worldwide.
The JX also continues Infiniti’s tradition of developing world’s first technologies, adding a new feature, Backup Collision Intervention (BCI), to the currently available Blind Spot Intervention (BSI) system and Around View Monitor.
With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, the JX will help the driver detect crossing vehicles and objects behind the JX and, if necessary, the system can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision. Among the many other advanced standard and available technologies found throughout the new JX is Infiniti Connection, a new feature that can automatically synch the owner’s schedule through Google Calendar and then provides navigation guidance to appointments. The Infiniti Connection system also includes Infiniti Personal Assistant, which offers owners 24-hour personal concierge services, such as arranging dinner reservations, flight changes, or purchase of anniversary gifts, from inside or outside of their Infiniti vehicle.
Offered in both front-wheel drive and with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, the Infiniti JX comes with a standard 265-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC V6 mated to a sport-tuned Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The Infiniti JX will be available on the market in spring 2012.
