2013 INFINITI EX37 Overview
The 2013 Infiniti EX37 luxury midsize crossover gets an exciting new V-6 engine and still offers one of the most technologically advanced interiors around. Thanks to its larger engine (3.7-liters vs. 3.5-liters last year) the EX37 name replaces the outgoing EX35.
The EX37 competes with other luxury two-row crossovers like the Acura RDX, Audi Q5 and BMW X3. Its style fits right in with the rest of Infiniti’s lineup, with a familiar front grille and headlights that look like they could have been lifted right off the front of a G37 sedan. 18-inch alloy wheels are standard with 19-inch wheels optional. Dual chrome exhaust tips, heated side mirrors, and fog lamps are standard, while a power sunroof, bi-xenon headlights, and adaptive headlights are also available.
Under the hood, the EX37’s new engine adds 28-hp compared to last year’s V-6. The 325-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission, which drives power through the rear-wheels. An all-wheel drive system is optional. The EX37, like other crossovers, rides on a car-based platform and has four-wheel independent suspension. Fuel economy ratings check in at 17/25 mpg city/highway with rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive models get one less mpg on the highway).
Like most Infiniti models, the EX37 is well equipped in any configuration, offering leather upholstery, automatic dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, powered front seats, USB/iPod interface, and push button start as standard features. Also available are maple wood interior trim pieces, heated front seats, a navigation system, and a powered second row.
The 2013 EX37’s emphasis on technology extends to safety as well. A rearview camera is standard, but the exciting set of cameras is the available Around View Monitor, which combines the view from four cameras to provide a top-down view of the vehicle and makes parking in tight spaces a breeze. Also available are adaptive cruise control, brake assist with forward collision warning, and a lane departure warning system.
