The 2013 JX is here, and there’s plenty of room for everyone. Take a look inside; maybe stick around for a while.
Infiniti JX Feature Highlights
The JX is a seven passenger luxury midsize SUV built on a Nissan Murano platform. Brand new for 2013, Infiniti offers a single trim called the JX35. Starting from $40,650, JX has been stocked with plenty of attractive features, including standard 18 inch alloy wheels, a 265 horsepower V6, bi-xenon headlights, heated side mirrors, moonroof, and leather seats with heat for the front row. Also standard are luxury extras like tri-zone climate control and a power rear liftgate. JX has also been given bigger dimensions that its Murano counterpart, which makes a forward and back sliding second row and reclining third row all the more appealing.
Extras come in the form of packages and feature some impressive tech. The prerequisite navigation option comes with the Premium Package; nav is seen through an 8 inch touchscreen display that shows 3D building graphics. Going Premium also gets you a 360 degree camera and a Bose audio system. A Theater Package gives backseaters multimedia entertainment, and the Technology Package adds blind spot and lane departure warning systems.
If there is one downside to JX, it’s that Infiniti has shuffled their deck all the way toward opulence, meaning you won’t find the type of performance that the brand has known to showcase with smaller options. You still have an all-wheel drive option, but you’re buying JX strictly for the pleasure of riding in it, not driving it. Good thing there’s plenty of ride to love.

Infiniti JX Performance
All JX trims receive a 3.5 liter V6 that produces 265 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque. Infiniti pairs its V6 with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that also offers a manual shift mode. Drivers can use the Drive Mode Selector to switch between Standard, Sport, Snow, and Eco modes to suit driver/driving conditions, and, though front-wheel drive comes standard, all-wheel drive is available to help boost both on and off-road capability.
Tow capacity is 3,500 lbs.
Infiniti JX Fuel Economy
EPA estimates tag the 2013 JX35 at 18/24/21 (city/highway/combined) MPG when equipped with standard front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive editions lose just 1 highway and 1 combined MPG for 18/23/20.
Infiniti JX Interior Highlights
Space is plentiful throughout JX’s cabin, and everything within orbit is dipped in luxury. Class and comfort come courtesy of standard leather & heated front seats, tri-zone climate control, a 60/40 split-folding and sliding second row, along with a 50/50 split and reclining third row. So even if you get stuck in the way-back, you’ve got some maneuverability and easy access in & out.
Up front, drivers can take control with an Intelligent-View Display that communicates pertinent vehicle data, standard Bluetooth, and optional 8 inch touchscreen navigation/infotainment, along with a 360 camera view of your outer surroundings.
Second row legroom is plentiful, offering up to 42.7 inches, compared to the third row’s 30.8 inches. Total cargo room maxes out at 76.5 cubic feet; all three rows upright you’ll still get 15.8 cubes.
Infiniti JX Safety
JX standards include four wheel antilock disc brakes with brake assist, stability & traction control, a rearview camera, as well as full length side curtain airbags.
Available safety tech is plentiful and includes rain sensing windshield wipers, blind spot warning and forward collision warning systems, lane departure warning with lane departure prevention, and intelligent brake assist that applies the brakes if drivers ignore the forward collision alert.
Shoppers are also given the choice of a camera upgrade. Dubbed Around View, four different cameras create a 360 view around the vehicle while front and rear sensors watch for impending objects.
Crash test ratings are not yet available for the 2013 JX35.
Infiniti JX Summary
This SUV is meant to get you and your family from A to B in comfort, style, and safety- not record time. If you can handle a relatively tame powertrain, the 2013 JX35 provides everything else you’d ever want-in a luxury people mover- and a bit extra for good measure.
The 2013 Infiniti JX is a rolling testament to decadence. Get it at the car buyer’s oasis, CarWoo!
