2013 Infiniti JX Begins Production in Tennessee
Nissan marked two milestones at its Smyrna, Tennessee plant this week. The all-new, 7-seater Infiniti JX rolled off the assembly line into history, becoming the first Infiniti ever produced at the plant, as well as the first luxury vehicle to be built in the state of Tennessee. A special Job One ceremony was held to mark the occassion.
“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,” said Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore. “I’m proud to say it’s built right here in Tennessee!”
The new JX features the world’s first Backup Collision Intervention system (BCI). Backup Collision Intervention uses sensors in the rear of the JX to detect potential obstacles when backing out of a parking space. If an obstacle is detected, the system gives visual and audible warnings. And, in case the driver doesn’t respond in time, BCI can step in and automatically apply the brakes to help avoid a potential impact.
The new Infiniti JX starts at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $40,450 for the JX35 FWD and $41,550 for the JX35 AWD model. Reservations are being taken now at InfinitiUSA.com/all-new-JX. The JX goes on sale at Infiniti retailers nationwide in March.
