About Infiniti FX35
The updated 2009 Infiniti FX was officially unveiled on March 4, 2008, at the Geneva Motor Show, and went on sale in June 2008. The V6 model retained the designation FX35 due to the VQ35HR V6, however the V8 model was renamed FX50 due to the newly built VK50VE 5-liter engine.
The exterior preserved elements of the “Bionic Cheetah” appearance and “giant scarab” profile of the first iteration while introducing fresh stylistic cues. Longer, shark-like sculpted headlamps, a huge trapezoidal grille filled with horizontal dark-chrome waves, and functional side air vents were among the new design’s features. The new model’s general size and proportions, both external and internal, remained similar to the prior model.
The inside was entirely renovated to match the degree of luxury found in other Infiniti cars such as the G37 and EX35.
Stitched leather seats, stained maple wood or piano black finishes, and matte-finish surfaces were among the features.
The front suspension featured a new double-wishbone design, similar to the G37 and EX35, which replaced the previous generation FX’s front strut-type suspension. The upper and lower A-arms of the suspension were developed to increase control of wheel motion, particularly when the suspension compresses and extends, offering more travel than the preceding strut design. In addition, the body was designed to be 1.6 times more torsionally robust and 3.4 times more bend resistant than the previous generation. All-wheel drive (AWD) was standard, and Infiniti’s AWD technology, in particular, constantly engages a 50:50 power split when stationary, ensuring maximum off-the-line traction at all times. When necessary, up to 100% of the engine’s power can be transferred to the rear wheels, with a maximum of 50% accessible to the front.
For the 2006 model year, the FX series received new choices and standard features. The exterior received a facelift with a new grille, bumper, wheel design, and three new exterior colors, while the interior received a reworked center console with a new color screen. Many previously optional features, such as the 300-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, were made standard.
The FX45 received additional enhancements, such as new 20-inch wheels, leather-appointed seats, a reworked sport-tuned four-wheel independent suspension with new dampers, a Bluetooth system, and the Premium Package became standard. Sales began in January 2006, following the start of production in November 2005. The S50’s production terminated in February 2008.
