The Infiniti JX Concept, a preview of the new 7-passenger, 3-row luxury crossover that joins the Infiniti lineup in spring 2012, made its world debut Thursday at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The JX Concept was unveiled by chief creative officer Shiro Nakamura prior to its display throughout the weekend’s activities at the famed Lodge at Pebble Beach.
“The JX Concept advances the Infiniti design language, sharing design cues of the Infiniti Essence concept, yet interprets those elements in ways suitable to the needs of a family luxury crossover,” said Nakamura.
“From the dramatic front grille and headlight design to the crescent-cut D-pillar and greenhouse shape, the JX Concept shines as a fresh, bold alternative to the many flavors of vanilla currently dominating the three-row luxury crossover segment.”[ Also Read: Artistic Rendering of the Jaguar C-X16 ]
The Infiniti JX offers the Blind Spot Intervention and adds a new feature, Backup Collision Intervention. With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, the JX will help the driver detect crossing objects behind the vehicle and, if necessary, the system will automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision.
It will also feature the Infiniti Personal Assistant, Infiniti’s new personal concierge service with 24-hour access to a live team of professional assistants. The Infiniti Personal Assistant benefit is now offered free-of-charge with every 2012 Infiniti vehicle purchase.
In conjunction with the global reveal of the Infiniti JX, Infiniti is launching the JX Concept “Power of 7” Challenge on Facebook.
