A special ceremony recently took place at Nissan’s Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant to celebrate the start of production of the Infiniti JX luxury crossover in Emerald Green in Tennessee – the first luxury vehicle built in Tennessee. Infiniti retailers throughout the U.S. will begin to sell the all-new, 7-passenger 2013 Infiniti JX in March.
This vehicle is the latest model added to the Infiniti Inspired Performance lineup. Making an appearance at the ceremony were Smyrna technicians, Nissan Americas Vice Chairman Bill Krueger, Vice President Manufacturing Smyrna – Decherd Susan Brennan, Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore and U.S. Representative Scott DesJarlais of the 4th Congressional District of Tennessee.
Brennan said that the company is very pleased that this “world-class vehicle” is being built in Middle Tennessee. He added that each Infiniti vehicle that’s built at the Smyrna production lines is the result of “inspired design and quality craftsmanship.” The 265hp 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engines are built nearby at Decherd, Tennessee.
The 2013 JX offers best-in-class fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg for the front-wheel drive model and 20 mpg for the intuitive all-wheel drive model. The new Infiniti JX has an MSRP of $40,450 for the JX35 FWD and $41,550 for the JX35 AWD model. For reservations, please visit InfinitiUSA.com/all-new-JX.
