Combining power, performance, and distinctive styling, the Infiniti FX45 Base AWD model received only a few minor upgrades for 2008, including standard XM satellite radio, as well as some updated interior and exterior colors. But the long, wide crossover SUV still had plenty to offer drivers, including its 320-horsepower, 4.5-liter V8 engine, which provided plenty of power under the pedal.
The 2008 FX45 also offered drivers a long list of standard features sure to please even the most discerning occupant, including a sport-tuned suspension, a power sliding glass moonroof, a Bluetooth hand's-free phone system, and Infiniti's Intelligent Key, which communicates with the vehicle as the driver approaches, and enables the driver to unlock the car at the touch of a button.
Of course, the FX45 also comes with Infiniti's Intelligent all-wheel-drive system, which automatically applies optimum torque to the wheels that most need it in any given driving situation.
XM satellite radio was integrated into the FX45's 11-speaker, 300-watt Bose audio system. Other features included a leather-appointed interior with heated power-adjustable front seats, a power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, and dual-stage front airbags.
Front fog lights, heated exterior mirrors, four-wheel antilock brakes, a tire pressure monitoring system, and electronic brake force distribution with brake assist were also part of the package for 2008.
