Infiniti EX35 - Is Revealed

Infiniti EX35

Infiniti's 2008 EX-a new five-passenger crossover with a "performance coupe soul". Nissan has taken the wraps off the 2008 Infiniti EX — a production car based closely on the concept shown earlier this year. Slotted below the FX crossover, the EX comes with a 290 horsepower V6 and all-wheel drive.

The new crossover vehicle will share a drivetrain with other vehicles from Nissan's "FM" rear-drive architecture. That means a 3.5-liter V-6, in this version with more than 290 horsepower and something Nissan calls the "Infiniti Swell" acceleration feel. The V-6 is mated to a five-speed automatic with sport mode, adaptive shifting and a manual gate.

The EX sports an independent suspension all around, with double control arms up front and a multi-link rear. The control arms are crafted from aluminum alloys, and shock absorbers are tuned for sporty handling. The steering rack is speed-sensitive, and the four-wheel disc brakes have anti-lock control. Standard 17-inch wheels can be subbed out for 18-inch, eight-spoke alloys with 55-series tires.
