Nissan Maxima Engine Specs
Previous Maxima engines were 2.5 L 4 cylinder engines which churned out up to 300hp. The latest Maxima however is powered by a 3.5L V6 DOHC 24 valve engine that is capable of churning out 325 hp. If that’s not something to write home about then we don’t know what is.
The interior boasts semi-aniline leather seats for maximum comfort and a Bose audio system. In the event that you need help from Nissan’s main desk, the car is fully equipped with NissanConnect and can link you up to the car manufacturers’ concierge services. Now that’s real value for money and customer care right there.
Both front and back seats are pretty spacious and offer great comfort. If you are not fazed by the hint of fake suede and diamond patterned stitching you might actually enjoy the look. The metallic trim also puts a touch of elegance to the interior .
The navigation touch screen stands at 7 inches and is useful for showing data and drawing a map of where you want to go. There is another touch screen found on the center console and this one can be controlled by the touching the knob found on the rear of the shifter. The navigation of the car is pretty basic but there is help from two digital screens to guide and help you. There is also access to a dual zone climate control that is automatic.
Those who have tested this car have said that it is actually more silent than the Mercedes-Benz S550 when it is cruising at 70mph. So you won’t be troubled much by the noise coming from the V6 engine.
Do you want to know what Nissan have done to ensure you won’t be disturbed by the noise while driving? The modifications are as follows. They worked on the engine until more than 61% of the V6’s parts had been redesigned. That’s not all the redesigned engine can do, as it is also very fuel efficient and can lift this 3,545 pound car from 0-60 mph in 5.5seconds. The Maxima’s top speed is credited at 137mph.
