Engine and Transmission
A powerful, performance-minded drivetrain is at the heart of every outstanding automobile. The Maxima and its drivetrain delivers on every dimension. Each trim level is outfitted with a 3.5L DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that produces 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque. The engine is also equipped with some exclusive Nissan technologies, like the Nissan Direct Ignition System, as well as the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission with Drive Mode Selector. You’ll get even more control with the standard electronic drive-by-wire throttle, available paddle shifters, and the available integrated dynamics control module with active ride control, active trace control, and active engine brake.
Suspension and Handling
You can have all of the power in the world, but if you don’t have superior suspension and handling systems in place, your car would deliver a frustrating driving experience. Thankfully, the Maxima has plenty of features to deliver a slick, controlled driving experience. The 4-wheel anti-lock braking system with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist ensure you can stop and slow on a dime. A standard independent strut front and independent multi-link rear suspension—or available sport-tuned suspension with retuned dampers, stiffer springs, and optimized stabilizer bar—will give you the smooth, controlled ride on any road condition that you’re looking for. Hydro-electric power steering and chassis reinforcement complete the total handling package.
Part of the incredible practicality of the Maxima lies in its fuel efficiency. Even though the Maxima delivers incredible performance, it also offers an outstanding EPA-estimated fuel economy of 30 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city due in part to the smart Xtronic CVT technology.
The Maxima’s performance is supported by many design details throughout. The exterior design is inspired by a jet fighter and offers aerodynamic curves, a low, road-hugging stance, and dual mufflers finished with bright chrome. An innovative metal-stamping manufacturing technique enabled deeply scalloped doors and a “floating” look roof. Even the interior offers high-octane features, like zero gravity front seats, optimally positioned controls, an advanced Drive-Assist display, and much more.
