The Maxima makes the most of its niche position to provide the driver with the most luxurious and modern experience without compromising performance.
Under the Maxima's Hood
The Nissan Maxima looks like an upscale sedan but functions much more like a sports car. The Maxima is powered by a 3.5-liter VQ-series V6 engine which can generate 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with a front-wheel drive system and a continuously variable automatic transmission. The Maxima's attention to detail is impeccable; even the smallest nuances have been observed like using sodium filled valves for an impressive specific output of 85.7 horsepower per liter. This V6 engine uses more than 60 percent new parts to make the Maxima as efficient and updated as possible. The engine isn't the only factor when considering the Maxima's impressive performance and handling capabilities. The Xtronic transmission features no fixed ratios and a wide gear ratio range to improve acceleration and ensure that the Maxima is always in the right gear. D-Step shifting logic further improves performance and allows for rapid shifting at high throttle openings and a fluid re-acceleration.
