Nissan has been building vehicles at its Smyrna, Tennessee facility for the past 30 years. In that time, many of Nissan’s most popular models have rolled off the assembly line. However, the facility has yet to turn out a luxury vehicle, until now. Production of the all-new Infiniti JX crossover has already begun at the plant and it’s officially the first luxury vehicle ever built in the state of Tennessee.

The all-new, seven-passenger 2013 Infiniti JX is slated to reach showrooms nationwide in March. When it arrives it will boast best-in-class fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg and 20 mpg combined for the front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models, respectively. While offering strong MPG, the JX will also boast plenty of power thanks to a 265-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine under the hood. This powerplant is also manufactured in Tennessee at a facility in nearby Decherd.

“We are extremely honored to be building this world-class vehicle, right here in Middle Tennessee,” said Susan Brennan, Vice President Manufacturing Smyrna-Decherd. “We expect the inspired design and quality craftsmanship built into every new Infiniti that rolls off the production line in Smyrna will deliver inspired performance that is second to none.”

The luxury crossover market is the fastest growing luxury segment in America, and Infiniti expects the JX to quickly become its second highest volume model, right behind the popular Infiniti G-line. With a base price of $40,450 for the front-wheel drive JX35, its priced competitively amid compact and midsize luxury crossovers.

“In JX, we have created the next great luxury family vehicle – one with seductive design, sophisticated craftsmanship, a roomy interior, innovations that make life more efficient, and advanced safety features,” added Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore. “I’m proud to say it’s built right here in Tennessee!”
