Why the Infiniti FX35 Is Not a 37

May 19, 2008

NASHVILLE,TN – Ever Since Infiniti unveiled the FX37 and FX50 at the Geneva motor showearlier this year, there’s been some confusion as to which models are coming tothe United States. While both markets receive the FX50, North America gets G35’s 3.5, not the G37-sourced V-6, according to www.motortrend.com.Why don’t we get the 3.7? Infiniti said they wanted to differentiate the V-6and V-8 models, and one element of that was by widening the performance gap.

 

There wasonly a 42-horsepower difference between 2008 FX35 and 45; the new engines arenow separated by nearly 90 horses. Also, the 3.5L’s 303 horses are only 27fewer than the 3.7 puts out, and its 6.1-second 0-to-60 time is actually fasterthan the previous FX45’s.

The newversion of the VQ35 isn’t the only thing that separates the FX35 from the 50, Motor Trend said. Rear drive isstandard, as are 18-inch wheels, and neither the Sport package nor summer tiresare available.
