The 2011 New York International Auto Show starts tomorrow, but Infiniti is already looking forward to the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, where it will be unveiling the 2013 Infiniti JX, a larger sibling to its EX and FX crossovers .

Until the concept is unveiled, all we have is the sketch above and a few tidbits teased by the automaker. The large crossover slots in just below the full-size Infiniti QX and will have three rows of seats with room for seven passengers. Externally, the design language that featured prominently on the Infiniti Essence concept car should be stretched to SUV proportions for the JX. Inside, the JX will debut the next generation of Infiniti's telematics and infotainment technology--which we're really looking forward to checking out.

The Infiniti JX concept will debut at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August, with a production model debuting shortly after at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show in November. After that the next step is the launch of the JX with a 2013 model year designation in the spring of 2012.

So, what is Infiniti showing in New York tomorrow? Expect a production version of the IPL G Convertible that we saw in coupe form last year and an Infiniti-sponsored Red Bull Racing Formula One car. Check out our preview gallery for more photos of the IPL G Convertible and stay tuned for our continuing coverage of the 2011 New York auto show.
