2013 Infiniti FX37 Fuel Economy

5.0
On Fuel Economy

The Infiniti FX (soon to be the Infiniti QX70) isn't one of the shining stars of gas mileage. By the EPA's numbers--and subjectively gauging its cozy interior against bigger, more efficient luxury crossovers--it ranks near the bottom of the back for fuel efficiency.

With the newly adopted 3.7-liter V-6, the numbers improve a little over last year. From last year's FX35, the FX37 rear-drive ute moves up from an EPA-rated 16/23 mpg to 17 miles per gallon city, 24 miles per gallon highway, or 19 mpg combined. Those numbers are in line with many seven-seat crossovers--and the FX more comfortably seats four.

The FX fares poorly in gas mileage, by EPA standards and by our own real-world driving experiences.

Adding all-wheel drive pushes the figures down to 16/22 mpg or 18 mpg combined--a 1-mpg increase on the highway cycle.

The V-8's gas mileage might be below some shoppers' threshold, at 14 mpg city, 20 mpg highway, or 16 mpg combined, in the range of the seven-passenger Mercedes-Benz GL. All FX models require premium gas.

Based on several different driving experiences, our editors have seen mid to upper teens in mixed driving with the V-6 and low teens with the V-8.
