Like any luxury SUV worth its salt, the JX features a power opening and closing rear hatch.
Out back is also where you'll find the sensors for the Backup Collision Intervention and Blind Spot Intervention systems. While reversing, the JX can engage its brakes automatically if an obstruction is detected to prevent a collision.
Go with the Premium Package and you'll get Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System with 8-inch touch-screen display, XM NavTraffic, Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming, Infiniti Connection, Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, and front and rear sonar sensors.
The JX series launches with the JX35, which is powered by a 265 horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This is the first Infiniti model to utilize a CVT, but Nissan has proven that it's fairly adept with this technology. Fuel economy is expected to be rated at 23 mpg highway and 17 mpg city with a combined 19 mpg estimate.
