Expert Quotes:

playful and fun to drive
Motor Trend

The steering isn't what we'd call engaging, but it's what we've come to expect from vehicles of this size and weight.
Autoblog

the V8 has great power--this thing is fast!
AutoWeek

performance is hardly shabby, with the 0-to-60 blast taking just 6.1 seconds
Car and Driver

Cornering is as flat and precise as any SUV on the market, with virtually no body roll.
Orlando Sentinel

The Infiniti FX can be had as an FX35, with a 303-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6, or as an FX50, with a 390-hp, 5.0-liter V-8. Both offer a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive and get a new seven-speed automatic transmission.

For most buyers, the V-6 will be plenty fast, and the engine is still among the sweetest V-6 engines around. With either of the engines, the seven-speed automatic shifts quickly and responsively, too.

The V-8 is even faster—about a second faster to 60 mph, in about five seconds—but V-6 version with rear-wheel drive are clearly the best-handling of the bunch, with all-wheel-drive models possessing a different steering feel and V-8s seeming noticeably heavier. Overall, steering feel is about as good as it gets in a utility vehicle of any kind, and body control is superb. You'd never guess you're in such a heavy vehicle; the FX has great poise without ever feeling tanklike.

Conclusion

Behind the wheel of the 2011 Infiniti FX, it feels like a lower sport sedan and, compared to most crossovers, it's very satisfying to drive.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
