The 14m car is a new Rogue

A 2021 Rogue is the 14 millionth vehicle to be built at Nissan's Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant in Tennessee.

The automaker claims Smyrna has been the highest volume vehicle assembly plant in North America annually since 2014.

"Since the first vehicle, a white Nissan pickup truck, rolled off the line in 1983, 14m high quality vehicles have been assembled for customers in America and around the world," said Jeff Younginer, vice president of manufacturing at the plant.

Smyrna employs 7,000 people and currently assembles six models: Rogue, Murano, Pathfinder, Leaf, Maxima and Infiniti QX60. The factory has built the Rogue since 2013 with more than 1.1m assembled to date, supplemented at times by South Korean built units.

The Rogue assembly line ranked in the top five in quality performance among North American manufacturing facilities in the 2020 JD Power Initial Quality Study (IQS).

The redesigned Rogue - X-Trail in other markets - is the first of six new Nissan models for the US which will be offered by the end of 2021.
