The legendary 3.5-liter V6 rapidly unleashes its 290 horsepower with a press of the accelerator. The intake valve design, coupled with variable valve timing on both the intake and exhaust ports, helps generate incredible torque for off-the-line acceleration and improved power at higher engine speeds.
With the advanced Continuously Variable Transmission, seamless power is a green light away. This intelligent CVT® optimizes engine performance and maximizes power output. The transmission also features four driver-selectable (DS) modes to meet your driving needs.
Massive (12.60" x 1.10" front and 12.13" x 0.63" rear discs) vented brakes rapidly dissipate heat and give the driver fade-resistant, sure-footed stopping power.
Maxima performs on a set of 18” aluminum-alloy wheels with a fine silver finish and are fitted with P245/45VR18 tires for optimal handling and traction in most conditions.
Adding both ventilation and sunlight to the interior, the tinted moonroof slides, tilts and has a manual sunshade, all controlled by a single button.
Maxima is equipped with 12-LED, L-shaped taillights with side marker bulbs to enhance visibility when driving in lower-visibility situations.
Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition allows you to unlock the doors and start the engine, all without taking the key out of your pocket.
With the standard Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, voice-recognition allows you to make and receive calls through the stereo speaker system. No headset, no reaching—just a nice firm grip on the steering wheel.
Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control lets the driver and front passenger choose their own individual temperature settings.
Integrated into the gauge cluster, the multi-function trip computer records and displays your current and average fuel consumption, your distance/time traveled and the outside temperature.
Comfortable combinations are endless with the 8-way adjustable driver’s seat and 4-way adjustable front-passenger’s seat. And with power controls and manual lumbar support for the driver’s seat, personalizing your journey is easy and efficient.
Settle in, turn up the volume and enjoy the ride. The standard audio system features AM/FM, an in-dash 6-CD changer, MP3/WMA CD playback, eight speakers and an auxiliary input to hook up your iPod®. You can control it all through illuminated steering wheel-mounted audio controls.
Nissan's Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags equipped with seat belt and occupant classification sensors. These dual stage air bags adjust their inflation rate, depending on the severity of impact and seat belt use. If the front passenger seat is empty, a sensor actually deactivates that air bag. In addition, standard side-impact supplemental airbags are built into the front seats, so they move with you as you adjust your seat. Above, standard roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help protect front and rear passengers.
During hard braking, ABS rapidly pumps the brakes to help prevent your wheels from locking, helping you maintain steering control.
LATCH is another way we’re working to keep children safe. The LATCH system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints in the second row without having to use seat belts or a locking chip.
By moving up and forward during certain rear-end collisions, front-seat Active Head Restraints help reduce the chance of whiplash injuries.
