    2003 Infiniti FX45

    WOW!! Just take a look at this one!!! I just saw the new FX45 commercial, and I was breathless. It's a sports car but it's also an SUV.

    The 4WD FX45 replaces the QX4. It rides on the 350Z/G35 Coupe chassis and comes equipped with a 5 speed auto. 0-60 as reported by Car&Driver: 6.3 sec and qtr mile: 15sec @ 93 mph! The Caddy STS can't even top that! Maybe it's due in large part to Infiniti's brawny 315hp 4.5L V8, 4500lb curb weight, and beefy dual exhaust. Oh and it rides on 20" tires (which come standard!)

    Inside you'll find an aluminum dash. LCD navigation system optional. One complaint from C&D is the harsh ride/feel every "zit and wrinkle" in the road.

    Starting price for the V8: $42,000, 280hp V6: $37,000.

    The front looks 5x better than the Murano. Glad to see all these cool designs coming from Nissan/Inf, most companies just draw concepts for PR that never see the factory.

    All I can say is is that it is definitely not an SUV.
    There is no way you can take this thing off the road.
    It is just a station wagon, with a powerful engine, and some updated styling.
    I will not be considering buying one....
