Infiniti JX Unwrapped at Pebble Beach

Infiniti pulled the wraps off its new JX Concept at the recent Pebble Beach Concourse D?Elegance.? The striking crossover is filled with a luxurious seven passenger/three row seating and innovative technologies.

?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 segment.??

The new Infiniti is designed to excel in the three areas luxury crossover buyers have indicated they want most ? interior flexibility and roominess, safety, and innovative hospitality features.

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

The production Infiniti JX will offer class-leading roominess, along with 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, with adult-sized room for all occupants and five-and-a-half inches of 2nd row forward-back adjustability.?

With features like Blind Spot Intervention and the new Backup Collision Intervention, the XJ

Will not only warn the driver about unseen vehicles on the highway, it will also warn the driver of unseen parking lot obstacles and if necessary, automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision.

The Infiniti JX will also offer technologies designed to make owners lives a bit easier 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 with 24-hour access to a live team of professional assistants.
