Nissan is expanding its US production wit the addition of new and improved Rogue model. The 2021 Nissan Rogue production began in Nissan Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant in Tennessee.
Nissan not only packed the 2021 Rogue with technology, but the company’s manufacturing and engineering teams use the latest technologies to bring it to life. Nissan is using enhanced applications of advanced manufacturing technology such as virtual reality and collaborative robots to build the vehicle.
Nissan has deployed more collaborative car manufacturing robots with the new Rogue than it has with any other previous model launch. These robots effectively support process factory automation, resulting in improved safety performance and less strain on workers. The technology is being used to assist with a number of jobs to ensure repetitive tasks are done the same way every time. This helps free up workers to perform more skilled tasks and produce higher-quality vehicles.
Working alongside frontline technicians, Nissan manufacturing engineers used virtual reality to troubleshoot issues before moving to the production floor. The technology not only helped to identify manufacturability concerns before the first steel was cut for production tools, but also shaped the design of process equipment through early, virtual feedback from production technicians, helping to prevent production delays.
Building on 13 years of success in the U.S., the 2021 Rogue will lead Nissan’s turnaround as the company’s top-selling U.S. model, with nearly 3 million sold to date.
The new Rogue is the first of six new Nissan models for the U.S. that will be offered by the end of 2021, giving Nissan one of the freshest lineups among key competitors. It follows all-new versions of the Nissan Versa and Sentra.
The all-new Nissan Rogue arrives at dealers throughout the U.S. this fall.
