( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Infiniti FX50 S is a 390 horsepower all-wheel-drive luxury rocket on 21 inch wheels. So naturally we couldn't help but wonder if it's the ultimate ski car to take up to the top of Colorado's Loveland 12,000 foot Pass? It has everything you would want in the ultimate ski car except perhaps one small thing and that would be a turbo to help the engine breath better at altitude. So how does the 2012 Infiniti FX50 S drive and handle up one of Colorado's highest mountain passes? Check out this first drive video review to find out.
2012 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Fast Look Review & Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD (heavy duty)
with the Duramax turbo diesel engine is
a monster of a pick-up truck. It will easily tow your boat, horse trailer
or house. In this Fast look review we check out how well the 2012 Chevrolet
Silverado 2500 HD does as a daily driver for you, your family and your dog.
2012 Mazda2 versus Infiniti FX50 0-60-0 MPH Performance Mashup Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Mazda 2 and the 2012 Infiniti FX50 have
very little in common except for perhaps interior volume. In fact the two
vehicles are about $50,000 apart when it comes to price. The Mazda 2 in
this video has a sticker price of of around $17K while the Infiniti FX50 is
just about $66K. So the question we wanted to answer was just how much more
performance can do you get for your extra $50,000 USD. To find out we put
the cars to the test to see how fast they go from 0-60 MPH and perhaps more
importantly how far many feet it takes them to run from 0-60-0 MPH. If you
are curious about the results. Check out the video.
2012 Chevy Volt versus Nissan Leaf Mash-up Drag Race
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 plug-in Chevrolet Volt and the new all
electric Nissan Leaf are not what most people would consider performance
cars. In fact they are designed to get people from point A to point B using
the least amount of energy and burning the least amount of oil. If you
think about it...in some ways they are the ultimate economy cars but that
doesn't mean they can't be fun to drive. To determine which of these two
new revolutionary cars is the better performance machine we put them to the
test the good old fashioned way: with an electric car drag race. So which
one is faster? Watch the video to
2012 Infiniti FX35 Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Infiniti FX35 is a sporty
all-wheel-drive crossover that's packed with the latest technology. With
massive 21' inch wheels and an engine that produces just over 300 horsepower the Infiniti FX35
is not only sporty but also fast. So how does this Infiniti compare to cars
like the BMW X5 and and the segment leading Lexus RX350? We recently had
the chance to drive the Infiniti through the beautiful mountains around
Spokane, Washington to find out.
2013 Infiniti FX37 Drive & Review: New 3.7L engine revealed
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 FX37 isn't all new but the big news is
under the hood. Instead of the previous Infiniti's 303-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6
this FX37 now gets a bigger 325-hp, 3.7-liter V-6. That's over 20 more
ponies to really move what was already a fast car.....even faster. For 2013 you also get standard
bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights and standard 18-inch alloy
wheel and even available 20- or 21-inch alloy wheels. All that means is
that the Infiniti FX37 is now up to the task of competing with cars like
the Acura ZDX, the BMW X6 the new Mercdes-Benz M Class and even the Range
At an as tested MSRP of $52,750 the Infiniti FX37 isn't the most expensive
of the sporty crossover bunch.....but it certainly might be the most
striking and controversial. This is a vehicle that you either love or hate
at first sight. There are very few people on the fence when it comes to the
Infiniti's almost reptilian hunkered down big-wheeled stance.

There is no slow FX in the line-up, with huge petrol and diesel engines
being the order of the day. Both petrol models boast 0-62mph times under 7
seconds, with the quickest even dipping under the six second barrier. A
stiff set-up means it corners well too but it's worth taking a test drive
to see if the ride is soft enough to live with on a daily basis.

2012 Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel version
Just six months after the idea first surfaced, the Infiniti FX designed for
reigning Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel is unveiled at the
2011 Frankfurt International Motor Show. What began as a chat between the
Red Bull Racing driver and Infiniti's Chief Creative Officer, Shiro
Nakamura, at the 2011 Geneva Show in March is revealed, in concept form, as
Infiniti's fastest car yet and, probably, the most exclusive crossover ever
With its sophisticated technology, lightweight components and features such
as Rear Active Steering for maximum agility, the V8 FX50S Premium -
Infiniti's flagship as well as its best-selling model in some markets -
provides the ideal starting point for the Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel
version. Changes including increased power, lower weight, derestricted top
speed, longer gearing, increased downforce and lowered and stiffer
suspension turn what is already a sports car among crossovers into a
crossover supercar - the 300km/h reality of the World Champion's vision.
Infiniti's Corporate Vice President Toru Saito said: "The FX Sebastian
Vettel version is unique and very much Sebastian's car. But at the same
time it is a concept car for Infiniti globally."
Sebastian Vettel, 2010 Formula One World Champion and Infiniti Global Brand
"I have been driving an FX all this year and it is a car I love. It fits my
lifestyle perfectly and is great fun to drive. But of course, it could go a
"I drive a lot in Germany on motorways that have no speed limits and have
enjoyed my FX around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Driving at high speed
where safe and legal is part of my life. As well as a higher top speed I
wanted even better stability in my FX, and that meant work on the
aerodynamics. It is a tribute to the excellence of the standard FX that
achieving all my targets required so few changes.
"This is the first road car I have helped develop. Usually I have hundreds
of engineers building one car just for me. So it is fantastic for me to
contribute to the design of a car. The result is an Infiniti I am very
proud to have my name on. It is all I hoped for: 300km/h, plenty of
downforce - and I can still fit my mountain bike in the back. Plus it is
totally exclusive - and as an Infiniti driver, that's important."
Design and aerodynamics
As Sebastian says, the first priority for his ultimate FX was to give it
more performance. However, whether on the racetrack or the road, speed is
just one part of the mix that goes to make a world-beater. All the car's
systems, and in particular the aerodynamics, must be up to the task. In the
Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel version they are.
The car's revised aerodynamics profile is the result of changes made by
Infiniti designers and engineers after meetings involving Sebastian and Red
Bull Racing personnel. A Red Bull Racing RB7 was even shipped to Japan to
provide real life inspiration for the team bringing the World Champion's
road car dream to life.
Riding 20mm lower than standard and featuring a more aerodynamic, as well
as more distinctive, Essence-inspired grille, the most obvious change is
the addition of a carbon rear wing. Tests show that it delivers everything
that its looks promise - and Sebastian sought - in terms of increased
downforce, and stability, at the 300km/h speeds of which the Infiniti FX
Sebastian Vettel version is capable.
As well as a 30 per cent improvement in the coefficient of lift (Cl), the
special FX boasts a 5 percent lower coefficient of drag (Cd). Boosting downforce while simultaneously
cutting drag is one of the concept's major claims to fame. Even the door
mirror housings have been shaped to increase downforce.
Carbon is used for the splitter, sills, front grille, mirror covers and
rear diffuser, trimming the weight of what is already one of the lighter
SUVs in its size class. Design of the splitter and diffuser is inspired by
the F1 car, as is the central rear fog light - just like an F1 car's rain
The wheels are 21-inch black multispoke alloys with silver rims, designed
exclusively for this car; they don't just look the part but also save
weight over the standard 21-inch FX50 wheel. At 2049kg, the Infiniti FX
Sebastian Vettel version weighs 46kg less than a standard FX50S Premium.
With an already potent 5.0 liter V8 under the bonnet, relatively little
needed to be done to enable the world's most special FX to hit Sebastian
Vettel's maximum speed target of 300km/h.
The first job was to free the car of its speed limiter which electronically
restricts all other FXs to 250 km/h. Even in standard form, with the VVEL
V8 producing 390PS at 6500 rpm, the car has plenty of performance beyond
its artificial top speed, but even so more power had to be found to deliver

This month we're plugging a funny video about the Infiniti IPL and the fact
that our salesman was completely misinformed about why it is called the
IPL, discovering only in the end that he has completely embarrassed
himself. Take a peek if you have an extra couple of minutes.
Hi, this is Joe Tunney bringing to you a comprehensive catalogue of
hundreds of great vehicles from throughout the automobile industry.
Although we specialize in Acura, BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, sports cars, SUV's
and of course our beloved Infiniti product line, we also like to carry and
review exotic cars from time to time like Ferrari, Dodge Viper, turbocharged all-wheel-drive cars like Mitsubishi
Evo, Honda S2000 and Subaru WRX, as well as affordable vehicles that fit
into every budget like the 2013 Kia Optima SX. For 2014 we are going to
make a point of reviewing everything we carry, demonstrating for you the
interior and exterior features and condition, the wheels and tires, trunk
space, as well as an overview of power, technology, economy and driving
characteristics to give you factual information as well as information
unique to this particular vehicle so that you can enjoy a more intelligent
shopping experience without ever having to step onto the lot.
A little about me. I have been the manager at Infiniti of Kirkland since
2004 and prior to that I ran a high end car boutique in neighboring
Bellevue, Washington. For my career I have sold over 10,000 cars so I hope
to bring you far more insight than you might ever know to even ask. I show
you in some videos how to see if a car has been in an accident, how to make
a great buy on a car with a bad Carfax, or why I wouldn't personally buy a
car even if it has favorable reviews. Every once in a while I'll even have
a little fun to keep the videos fresh but I want to make certain you know
that you can always email me at email@example.com if you ever
have any questions or feel I have made a mistake or used poor judgment or
I am truly thankful for the hundreds of thousands of views and more
importantly, perhaps much more importantly, I am honored to have been
viewed in over 200 countries around the world. We all are ambassadors for
the things we believe in regardless of where we were born and from my
little corner of the world here outside of Seattle, Washington I want to
express my sincere gratitude for you having invited me into your home, your
place of work, or for simply taking a minute of your valuable time to
listen to what I have to say. Maybe we will never meet face to face, but I
am forever in your debt for giving me the opportunity to share with you the
things I have learned.

2012 Infiniti M37 S HD Video Review
http://drivencarreviews.com/ Infiniti could have copied BMW or Mercedes
like so many have before, but they've clearly taken their own road with the
M37 S. It delivers the stuff needed to play in this market, the only thing
missing are enlightened buyers. Tom Voelk follows a BMW 7 Series in
downtown traffic without touching the brake pedal to see how well Distance
Control Assist works.
2012 Cadillac CTS versus Infiniti M56x All-Wheel-Drive Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Cadillac CTS Sport wagon and the
Infiniti M56 both come with all-wheel-drive. The Cadillac's Borg Warner
system "uses sophisticated controls and algorithms to augment vehicle
handling and traction by optimally using grip at both the front and rear
wheels," according to Cadillac. It can shift up to 100% of available torque
to the front axle if needed.
The 2012 Infiniti's M56x All-Wheel-Drive system is designed "specifically
for a front engine/rear-wheel drive biased setup. 0 to 50 percent of the
power can be sent to the front wheels for better control. The active brake
limited slip differential can shift power side to side. The system uses an
advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes
torque to the wheels (0:100 up to 50:50 front to rear) according to road
and driving conditions." according to Infiniti.
So which is better up Lick Skillet Road (America's steepest country road)
when it's muddy, wet and slick? Watch the video to find out in this
All-wheel-drive mashup review.
