Yes, that’s faster than the Ford Mustang GT and 0.1 second faster than the BMW 335i. Currently the 2008 Infiniti FX tops out at 320-hp but when the redesigned 2009 model arrives in dealers this summer the FX will be taken to a whole other level.
The 2009 Infiniti FX entry level model will come with a 3.5L V6 that produces 303-hp. The range-topper, FX50, will now be powered by a 5.0L V8 producing 390-hp. The latter comes with some crazy amount of performance for an SUV. In CARandDriver’s road test, drivers were able to accelerate the 2009 FX50S from 0-60 in 5 seconds flat.
To us, that’s highly-impressive – but don’t you think we’re getting a little crazy with these insanely powerful SUVs that mostly moms will be using to haul kids to their games?
