Maxima: Cutting Edge Tech with a Performance Heritage

The Nissan Maxima is an icon in the history of sport sedans in the US. As one of the first foreign challengers to the German-dominated sport sedan market in the late 1980s, the Maxima quickly gained a reputation for tenacious handling and power at a value price. That reputation still holds today as the Maxima remains a seasoned veteran in the much more competitive sport sedan segment of today.

At the heart of Nissan's flagship sedan is the race-inspired VQ V6 engine. The precision-tuned engine, featuring sodium-filled exhaust valves and anodized pistons, produces 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque with a linear curve all the way to redline. The space age materials and refined tuning present in the VQ engine are rarely seen outside formula one. Nissan pairs its engine masterpiece with an equally innovative and segment-exclusive CVT transmission. The continuously variable transmission provides essentially an infinite number of gearing ratios, allowing for the seamless application of power.
