2009 Infiniti FX50

2009-infiniti-fx50Infiniti showed off their all-new 2009 FX50 at Geneva – complete with it’s 5.0 liter V8.  This big V8 managed to push out 380 HP – not too shabby for an SUV / crossover / hatchback / thing.  The new FX rides on the new platform underpinning the current generation G sedan and coupe, which means RWD is standard, with the option of AWD.

Unfortunately Infiniti kept the overall design the same, which means very, very ugly.  The FX50 looks like nothing else on the road, and that’s not a good thing in this case.  Couple that with the fact that the 5.0 liter V8 will likely be quite thirsty, and I have my doubts on the success of this vehicle.  Could the younger brother FX steal the new FX’s thunder?  We’ll see, but I’d lay my money on it.
