Nissan North America Inc to build midsize pickup truck for Suzuki Motor Corp

Starting in 2008, Nissan North America Inc. will construct a midsize pickup truck for Suzuki Motor Corp. at Nissan's plant in Smyrna.

The companies said in statements Tuesday that the pickup will be based on Nissan's Frontier midsize pickup and will be solely marketed by Suzuki in North America.

Preparations are under way to ready the Smyrna plant.

In 2006, the Japanese automakers announced an agreement to expand the scope of a deal that also included Suzuki supplying Nissan Alto minicars in Japan.

Nissan's North American headquarters is in Nashville.
