Nissan has begun production of the 2016 Maxima mid-size sedan at its Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant in Tennessee.

The eighth-generation Maxina debuted at the New York International Auto Show in early April. The Maxima is one of six models currently built at the Smyrna plant and is assembled on the same line as the Altima mid-size sedan and all-electric Nissan LEAF. Maxima's new 3.5-liter, VQ-series V-6 engine is also assembled in Tennessee at Nissan's Decherd Powertrain Plant.

The first U.S.-assembled Maxima rolled off the assembly line in Smyrna in January 2003. Since then, Nissan has produced nearly 800,000 Maxima sedans at the plant.
