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 the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The five-seat Infiniti FX is a luxury crossover that emphasizes sportiness over utility. It is sold as the V-6-powered FX37, covered in a separate report in the Cars.com Research section, and as the V-8-powered FX50. It competes with a number of luxury crossovers, from the Lexus RX 350 to the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and BMW X5. All-wheel drive is standard on the FX50, and the FX37 is available with rear- or all-wheel drive. New for 2013 There are no significant changes to the FX50. 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

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.
