Infiniti Continues Its Momentum in Detroit with Debuts of the Powerful FX45 Premium Crossover SUV and Dramatic Triant concept

The world debut of two exciting performance luxury vehicles – the FX45 premium crossover SÚV and the innovative Triant concept – marked the highlights of Infiniti's press conference today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Infiniti Vice President and General Manager Mark McNabb also announced Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the FX45 of $44,225 and $35,700 for the V6-equipped FX35 ($34,200 for the RWD FX35). The FX45 goes on sale at 162 Infiniti dealerships nationwide beginning January 24 2003.

The FX45 is the fourth all-new Infiniti product introduced in less than 12 months, following the recent launches of the Motor Trend Car of the Year G35 sport sedan and G35 sport coupe and the introduction of the all-new M45 performance sedan. (concept carz)

Infiniti experienced the highest sales month in its 13-year history this past November following the introduction of the G35 sport coupe. 'Infiniti continues to bring to the market new, powerful, innovative products,' said McNabb. 'The strength and depth of Nissan's recovery efforts ensure that Infiniti will continue to be a leader in performance, luxury and technology – as demonstrated today wîth the new FX45 and Triant concept.'

Infiniti's latest advanced concept vehicle, the Triant, made its world debut at Detroit's 2003 North American International Auto Show on a stage shared wîth a former Infiniti concept-turned-production-vehicle, the 2003 Infiniti FX45 premium crossover SÚV. Like the all-new FX45, the Triant is designed to provide an innovative combination of sportiness, luxury features and all-wheel drive performance in a highly personal, dramatically styled package.

The Triant's exterior was designed as a modern interpretation of classic sporting vehicles – vehicles that expressed driving pleasure through a deeply rooted sense of beauty and elegance. Triant creates a similar feeling in a SÚV through a fusion of authentic sports coupe styling and the latest in automotive technology wîth an emotional, Japanese-influenced design flavor.

The Triant's doors are a wide gullwing design, stretching over five-and-a-half feet in length and opening to nearly seven feet in height. The doors, which are electrically operated and assisted by six gas cylinders each, feature lightweight aluminum construction and a special door opening sensing system which helps avoid hitting people or objects when the doors open or close. Like the gullwing side doors, the large rear hatch swings widely open, offering exceptional access to the flexible cargo area.

The inner reaches of the Triant concept's 2+2 cabin are equally intriguing, combining flexibility for active lifestyles wîth an Infiniti attention to enhancing the driving experience. It was designed wîth the understanding that all the unspoken 'elements' that combine to make an interior – such as the form, details, materials, textures, lights and atmosphere – should reflect the personality of both the vehicle and the brand. For Triant, the interpretation of the 'Infiniti feeling' is expressed in its comfort, quality, modernity and authentic Japanese undertones.

Though a fully capable SÚV – wîth its height-adjustable suspension and SÚV-like approach and departure angles – the Triant concept delivers on-road performance to match its sport coupe-like appearance.

At the heart of the Triant is a compact yet powerful 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine, mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) An advanced ATTESA ET-S all-wheel drive system provides all-climate driving ability, while the 4-wheel independent suspension combines a comfortable ride wîth secure road holding. The suspension also can be raised 0.8 inches for off-pavement use and lowered 1.2 inches for highway driving.
