As one of the most stylish vehicles on the road the Nissan Maxima offers an array of features and a powerful engine that will satisfy just about any consumer.

The Nissan Maxima is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 300-horsepower with 261 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a CVT transmission and produces an EPA rated fuel efficiency of 21/30 mpg. The CVT transmission is equipped with D-step shifting logic that allows the Maxima to shift rapidly during high throttle acceleration. The uniquely powerful engine combines with 4-wheel independent suspension and monotube rear shocks in order to deliver a superior driving experience.nissan
