Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

The original Infiniti FX explored the boundaries of sportiness in a crossover, though not without some drawbacks in utility. A 390-horsepower V-8 powers the five-seat FX50, while a 303-hp V-6 powers the FX35, which is covered in a separate report in the Cars.com Research section. A number of luxury crossovers, from the Lexus RX 350 to the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, compete with the FX. All-wheel drive is standard on the FX50.
New for 2012 The FX50 gains a revised front grille, new front-end styling and updated meter illumination. Adaptive headlights have been added to the FX50's Sport Package, too.
Exterior The FX's beady headlights and rakish profile are at least as controversial as those elements on its predecessor, if not more so. Along the side, functional air vents reduce the FX's lift, Infiniti says. Exterior features include:
Standard 20-inch alloy wheels
Available 21-inch alloy wheels
Standard bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
Optional adaptive suspension continuously reacts to changing road conditions
Optional Rear Active Steer angles rear wheels slightly to enhance turning precision
Interior The cabin has a high dashboard. A ledge just below the windshield curls around to the window sills, and air-conditioning and stereo controls sit below an available navigation display. The leather seats can come with quilted center inserts. Power adjustments for the front seats are standard. Interior features include:
Standard reclining rear seat
Standard Bluetooth connectivity
Standard dual-zone climate control
Standard power liftgate
Standard USB input for MP3 players
Standard heated and ventilated front seats
Under the Hood The FX50's 5.0-liter V-8 makes 390 hp and teams with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Mechanical features include:
Standard all-wheel drive
3,500-pound towing capacity
Safety Standard safety features include active front head restraints, side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for both rows. Traction control, an electronic stability system and four-wheel-disc antilock brakes are also standard. The FX50's brakes sport four-piston, aluminum front calipers, hardware that suggests serious stopping performance. Safety features include:
Standard Around View Monitor system uses four cameras to create a bird's-eye view of the immediate surroundings
Optional lane departure prevention system
Optional adaptive cruise control
Optional forward warning system applies brakes in the event of an impending collision
