The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced that its luxury brand, Infiniti, has started production on the JX crossover in the United States.
According to the car manufacturer, the Infiniti JX, will go on sale as a 2013 model year and the crossover will be assembled at the Smyrna vehicle assembly plant in Tennessee, United States. The new Infiniti JX is coming with a backup collision intervention system which is using sensors in its rear part to detect potential obstacles when the vehicle is being backed out of a parking space and the brakes are automatically applied in order to avoid a potential impact.
Under the hood, the 2013 Infiniti JX is coming with a 3.5 liter DOHC V6 engine which is developing a total output of 265 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and it has a peak torque of 4,400 rpm. The engine is mated to a sport-tuned CVT (continuously variable transmission) which is helping the crossover to achieve 21 mpg in the front-wheel drive and 20 mph in the all-wheel drive models.
“We expect the inspired design and quality craftsmanship built into every new Infiniti model that rolls off the Smyrna production lines will deliver inspired performance that is second to none”, said the Smyrna manufacturing vice president, Decherd Susan Brennan.
The all-new 2013 Infiniti JX, with its seven seats, will go on sale starting from March this year, and the crossover will have a starting price of $40,450 for the front-wheel drive and $41,550 for the all-wheel drive models.
