Infiniti Outlines Small Changes for 2011 EX, FX Models

Sure, you've seen the all-new 2011 Infiniti QX56, but were you curious what else Infiniti has up its sleeve?
Wonder no more. Infiniti has outlined a number of mild changes for its QX, EX, and FX models ahead of their debuts.
2011 Infiniti EX
Infiniti's smallest crossover receives some powertrain updates, but not underneath the hood. The 3.5-liter V-6 remains the sole engine offering, but it's now mated to a seven-speed automatic on both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive models.

Base EX models now receive dual zone automatic climate control as standard equipment, along with new 18-inch wheels and tires, and new electroluminescent gauge lighting. Product planners have also shuffled the option packages for 2011, adding the blind spot warning system to the Technology Package, combining the Navigation Package with the Around View Monitor Package to create the new Premium Package, and offering 19-inch wheels in the new Deluxe Touring package, which was formerly known as the Premium Package.
Confused? Consult a dealer this fall, as the 2011 EX should arrive in showrooms come October.
2011 Infiniti FX
For the most part, the 2011 FX35 and FX50 soldier on unchanged from 2010, although Infiniti did make a few cosmetic and content-related tweaks for the new year. A power liftgate will become standard equipment, and both five-spoke, 20-inch aluminum wheels and black lacquer trim will become standard equipment on the FX50.

Miss the 2010 FX50's previous maple interior veneers and the larger 21-inch rolling stock? Don't fret. Both are available in what Infiniti calls the Deluxe Touring Package, which also includes aluminum pedals. Navigation has now been lumped into the FX35's optional Premium Package, while a new color -- Malbec Black -- is available on both FX models. Look for the revised range to hit dealers in October.

2011 Infiniti QX
For 2011, the QX nameplate abandons its Armada roots, and moves to a modified form of the Nissan Patrol SUV sold elsewhere around the world. A 5.6-liter direct-injection V-8 delivers both 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to a standard seven-speed automatic transmission. Infiniti offers only two model trims of the QX, allowing it to offer both rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive forms of the big people mover.
