In short: The first luxury crossover.

This crossover model combines the sleek sportiness of a sedan with the muscle of an SUV. The 275 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque available through the FX35's 3.5-liter V6 provide ample power and quickness, while the comfortable interior and extensive safety features remind passengers that this fun-to-drive crossover is, in fact, a sophisticated luxury vehicle.
