In preparation for the market launch in March , the first batch of 2013 Infiniti JX crossovers are being produced at Nissan’s Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant.
Nissan and Infiniti celebrated production of the first unit of the 7-seater luxury crossover with a small ceremony attended by 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.
The JX is an all-American product, as its 265-horspower 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engines are assembled in nearby Decherd, Tennessee.
Price-wise, the new crossover retails at $40,450 USD for the JX35 FWD and $41,550 USD for the JX35 AWD model. Th car delivers best-in-class fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg and 20 mpg combined for the front-wheel drive and intuitive all-wheel drive models respectively. Its main feature that gives it the edge over the rest of the cars in this segment is the third row of seats and excellent rear legroom.
