Infiniti has shoehorned its more powerful 3.7L V6 between the front fenders of its EX and FX crossovers for the 2013 model year. Both vehicles were previously equipped with Infiniti's smaller 3.5L V6.
Although European versions of the EX and FX have utilized Infiniti's 3.7L V6 for years, American buyers have had to settle for the company's older 3.5L V6. However, that's changing for the 2013 model year as Infiniti has introduced both the EX37 and FX37 to the U.S. Market.
The 2013 EX37 arrives with a 325 horsepower V6, netting a healthy 28 horsepower bump over the outing 3.5L V6. The 2013 EX37's $37,300 price tag is $550 more expensive than the outgoing model, but the more powerful engine should be worth the difference.
Fuel economy for all-wheel drive versions of the EX remain unchanged at 17/24mpg city/highway, but rear-wheel drive models actually get a 1mpg bump to 25mpg on the highway.
Infiniti is also introducing the FX37 for the 2013 model year with the same 325 horsepower 3.7L V6. Prices for the 2013 FX37 start at $45,250 for the entry-level rear-wheel drive model with stickers topping out at $53,700 for the top-level FX37 Limited Edition.
The 2013 FX also arrives with an updated version of Infiniti's Around View Monitor system.
