There is, however, one Infiniti which sells in relatively large numbers, a vehicle that makes Lexus and Acura look more like... well, Infiniti. In almost every premium category, Lexus has a model that sells more frequently than the equivalent Infiniti. The RX outsells the Infiniti JX, EX, and FX combined, and does so with thousands of units to spare. The ES and GS both make the Infiniti M look supremely weak. Lexus's IS doesn't find as many buyers as the Infiniti G, but Acura sells three different potential G rivals, and together they easily outsell the G.

In October 2012, the QX56 outsold its Lexus rival by a 4-to-1 count. The LX570 starts at $80,930. The QX starts at $60K and tops out around $81,000 with all options and accessories. It helps to be the value-priced machine.
Acura doesn't offer a vehicle in this segment: the MDX starts at $43,280 and doesn't have the African roots of the QX or the Land Cruiser background of the LX.
