2013 Infiniti JX35
Infiniti JX: About the name...
Meanwhile, a side note. Something funny happened on the way to our Three-Month Road Test. Last week, Infiniti announced it would change the names of every one of its products, including the year-old 2013 JX crossover. So while we're talking about it now, we're also thinking ahead to next year when it becomes the 2014 Infiniti QX60.
If you're looking for more on the logic and rationale behind the decision, you'll have to turn to Infiniti's president and his take on the Big Change. Mostly, we'll be getting used to the seven-seat QX60 slotting below the five-seat QX70--the "old" Infiniti FX sporty ute.
Until then, we'll be spending the rest of the grey days testing the JX on long road trips, observing its fuel economy, and putting its infotainment systems to the test--while calling it by both its names.
In our next update, we'll tell you what we think our jet-black 2013 JX does best. Spoiler alert: if you've ever spent a Christmas holiday with kids and a long interstate drive, we think you'll agree with our thoughts on wireless headsets.
