Infiniti JX Concept Makes World Debut at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

– Innovative 7-Passenger, 3-Row Luxury Crossover Concept Previews Latest Addition to Infiniti 'Inspired Performance' Lineup, Set for Spring 2012 On Sale –

The Infiniti JX Concept, a preview of an innovative new 7-passenger/3-row luxury crossover that joins the Infiniti lineup in spring 2012, made its world debut today at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The JX Concept was unveiled by Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Shiro Nakamura prior to its display throughout the weekend's activities at the famed Lodge at Pebble Beach.

'The JX Concept advances the Infiniti design language, sharing design cues of the Infiniti Essence concept, yet interprets those elements in ways suitable to the needs of a family luxury crossover,' said Nakamura. 'From the dramatic front grille and headlight design to the crescent-cut D-pillar and greenhouse shape, the JX Concept shines as a fresh, bold alternative to the many flavors of vanilla currently dominating the three-row luxury crossover §egmènt.'

Beyond its stunning exterior, the new Infiniti JX Concept is designed to excel in three areas where luxury crossover buyers put an emphasis – interior flexibility and roominess, safety, and innovative hospitality features.

'The three-row luxury crossover §egmènt is one of the fastest growing among all luxury vehicle §egmènts, providing a huge opportunity for Infiniti,' explained Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore. 'And like every §egmènt Infiniti enters, we plan to shake up the status quo – wîth a vehicle that is guaranteed to instantly become the new benchmark for style, hospitality, roominess, advanced telematics and safety technologies.'

In the interior, for example, the production Infiniti JX will offer what is expected to be class-leading roominess, along wîth a 2nd row seat design that tilts and slides forward providing exceptionally easy 3rd row access.

'With the JX, you will even be able to leave a child seat latched to the 2nd row while getting in or out of the 3rd row – just one example of the vehicle's inspired flexibility and versatility,' added Poore. 'The 3rd row isn't the typical penalty box either, wîth adult-sized room for all occupants and five-and-a-half inches of 2nd row forward-back adjustability.'

The Infiniti JX continues Infiniti's tradition of developing world's first technologies, offering the currently available Blind Spot Intervention and adding a new feature, Backup Collision Intervention. With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, the JX will help the driver detect crossing objects behind the vehicle and, if necessary, the system will automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision.

The Infiniti JX will also offer technologies designed to make owners lives a bit easier and more efficient, such as a 14-speaker Bose® Studio Surround® sound system wîth Waveguide bass technology and an advanced Infiniti Connection Telematics system that can automatically synch the owner's calendar and provide navigation guidance to appointments. It will also feature the Infiniti Personal Assistant, Infiniti's new personal concierge service wîth 24-hour access to a live team of professional assistants. The Infiniti Personal Assistant benefit is now offered free-of-charge wîth every 2012 Infiniti vehicle purchase.

And, in keeping wîth Infiniti's 'Inspired Performance,' the Infiniti JX will offer a balance of driving exhilaration and fuel efficiency through a combination of a powerful V6 engine and all-wheel or front-wheel drive. The Infiniti JX will also be the first Infiniti to utilize a sport-tuned, but fuel-efficient continuously variable transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The CVT will mimic a step transmission when the Sport mode of the Infiniti drive selector is engaged. Additional information regarding the drivetrain and other systems will be provided at the debut of the production version of the all-new Infiniti JX at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2011.

'As a premium crossover wîth a real 3rd row – along wîth Infiniti levels of hospitality and driving pleasure, the new JX is another breakthrough design from the brand that has been breaking new ground for more than 20 years,' Nakamura added. 'We will continue to challenge conventional thinking.'

In addition, in conjunction wîth the global reveal of the Infiniti JX, Infiniti is launching the JX Concept 'Power of 7' Challenge on Facebook. The challenge invites fans to submit inspiring creations relating to seven Infiniti JX categories: Epicurean, Art & Fashion, Film, Interior Design, Music, Athletics and Technology & Science. The community will vote on the submissions, and winners in each category will receive a cash prize and compete to win trip to 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show.
