Infiniti announces pricing for 2009 FX35 and FX50

Infiniti's cranked up the content levels for the new 2009 FX sport-utility - and accordingly, it's cranked up the pricing. A base rear-drive 2009 FX35 stickers at $40,950 - nearly $2900 more than the outgoing model.

Prices for the other models have also shot upwards; the FX35 AWD now retails for $42,350, a $2800 jump. The new all-wheel drive FX50 - surpassing the outgoing FX45 model with a new 5.0-liter V-8 - starts at a whopping $56,700, nearly $6600 more than the FX45 and just underneath the entry price for a Porsche Cayenne S ($57,900).

Granted, that price does get you a top-end FX with virtually no options. In fact, the only add-ons for the FX50 are a rear-seat DVD package ($1600), a sport package ($3000) (including rear active steering, sports seating and adjustable suspension), and a technology package ($2900), which adds whiz-bang features like intelligent brake assist, lane departure prevention systems, adaptive cruise control and rain-sensing wipers.

FX35 models can also opt for the Technology and Premium packages, but are also open to a premium package ($2350), navigation system ($2850), and a Deluxe Touring package ($2650) - all of which essentially add features found standard on the FX50.

Look for both models to arrive at Infiniti dealers nationwide starting June 24th.
