Infiniti says that the 2013 JX comes with independent suspension and an all-wheel drive is an option, while the vehicle is sitting on 18 inch alloy wheels, with 20 inch being available as an option. The new JX also comes with the Infiniti Connection technology, Bose surround system, Bluetooth, USB port, satellite radio, LED taillights, power tailgate, power moonroof, panoramic glass roof, leather upholstery, powered and heated front seats, three zone climate control, navigation, ventilated front seats, remote start, air purifier, heated second-row outboard seats, heated steering wheel and rear seat DVD entertainment system.
