Originally shown as a concept at Pebble Beach in August, Infiniti had planned to unveil the production version of the 2013 Infiniti JX at the LA auto show few months ago. For whatever reason, the 2013 Infiniti JX release date was changed and the showroom version was debuted in Canada at the Montreal International Auto Show in January.
Unlike the rest of the current Infiniti lineup, which depends on just two rear-drive-based platforms—one for the G, M, EX, and FX, and a second for the QX—the 2013 Infiniti JX will borrow a front-drive-based Nissan platform. The bosses at Nissan and Infiniti haven’t yet spoken to the degree of differentiation between the 2013 Infiniti JX and any Nissan siblings, but we expect the Infiniti to be something more than simply a stretched and rebadged Murano.
The 2013 Infiniti JX interior has chrome trim and the usual exotic assortment of Infiniti colors and finishes, one a “washi” wood with a silky texture, or a more traditional maple. As one might expect for the 2013 Infiniti JX, the luxury that Infiniti has become known for will abound, coupled with some innovative rear seating solutions to age old problems.
Forward sliding second row seats in the 2013 Infiniti JX will make accessing the third row easier than most seven passenger conveyances; the geometry of this system allows third row passengers to clamber in even if there is a child seat in the second row. The 2013 Infiniti JX engine power comes from a 3.5-liter V-6 with 265 horsepower and a continuously variable transmission (CVT), like the unit found in the Murano.
This 2013 Infiniti JX CVT is Infiniti’s first application of the CVT, and in the Murano it’s as refined as any we’ve driven; here it’s also been paired with electronic controls to modulate performance in four modes (normal, eco, sport and snow). The 2013 Infiniti JX suspension’s independent, with struts in front and a multi-link rear end. All-wheel drive is an option in the 2013 Infiniti JX; four-wheel disc brakes are standard along with 18-inch wheels and tires, while 20-inchers are an option.
Competitors 2013 Infiniti JX
The 2013 Infiniti JX SUV will be priced from $41,300 when it arrives in showrooms next spring. Infiniti released the 2013 Infiniti JX pricing and details on its first seven-seat crossover at the 2011 Los Angeles auto show, promising that the future Infiniti JX would “shake up the status quo” that currently counts the Acura MDX, Audi Q7 and the Lincoln MKT as some of its flashier competition.
The new 2013 Infiniti JX luxury crossover undercuts two of its main competitors, the 2012 Acura MDX and the 2012 Audi Q7. The MDX starts at $43,815, including an $885 shipping charge while the Q7 starts at $47,125, including an $875 destination charge.
The 2013 Infiniti JX comes from the same roots as the Tennessee-built Nissan Murano, and will share its assembly line, but the look is completely its own. The 2013 Infiniti JX jazziest styling cues erupt from its grille and its rear pillars, which carry over the Z-shaped motif from the fabulous Essence concept; they’re applied to a body that’s far more traditional, though, than Infiniti’s stubby EX and FX crossovers.
