2012 Infiniti FX Gets Mild Facelift, Base Price Set at $43,450

The upcoming 2012 Infiniti FX is set to receive a few updates when it arrives in the showrooms this October, along with a new limited edition model and revised pricing.

According to Nissan’s luxury arm, the FX will get a new front fascia that draws inspiration from the Infiniti Essence Concept that we first saw at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show. Much like the front view of the stunning concept, a large Infiniti emblem sits in the center of the over-sized grill that sports sharp, angular kinks on its side. The FX will also receive newly-designed, 20” rims and an updated instrument cluster.

Additionally, a Limited Edition FX35 (all-wheel drive version only) will sport an exclusive Iridium Blue paint color, 21-inch graphite rims, darkened headlights, a navigation system, Infiniti’s Around View Monitor  and various graphite and aluminum trim interior finishes.  Priced at $52,445, only 550 copies of Limited Edition FX35 will make it to the States.

Pricing remains the same for the AWD FX35 ($45,795 including the $895 destination fee), but goes up slightly for the base FX35 and the range-topping FX50. The base, rear-drive FX35 is now priced at $44,345 including destination, or $850 higher than the $43,495 price of the 2011 model. Infiniti increased the base price for the 2012 FX50 by just $100, which is now $60,245 including destination.

The powertrain remains unchanged which means the FX35 still gets the 3.5-liter, 303-hp, V-6 engine, while the FX50 is stuffed with the 5.0-liter, V-8 rated at 390 hp.
