2018 Nissan Maxima is a unique full-size sedan


The Nissan Maxima has been in production for a long time, in fact since 1981! 2018 Nissan Maxima is a full-size family sedan.

In that time, it has become one of America’s most popular full-size sedans, ranking in the top three for many years.

Last updated back in 2015, we don’t think that Nissan will push the boat out when it comes to updates or restyling with the new 2018 model, but there will be some changes, including new tech and a little bit of reengineering.

Nissan haven’t announced anything official about the new 2018 Maxima yet, but there are plenty of sources of information on the internet.

2018 Nissan Maxima Release date

Nissan haven’t released any information regarding the release date of the new 2018 Maxima, but our sources tell us that we should see it in the showrooms toward the last quarter of 2017.

2018 Nissan Maxima release date: late 2017

2018 Nissan Maxima Price

Again, based on informed knowledge rather than fact from Nissan, we think the Maxima will start in the region of $33,000 for the base model, perhaps rising up to just over $40,000 for the flagship.

2018 Nissan Maxima Redesign and changes

It’s thought that thanks to the introduction of the new model in 2015, Nissan won’t be changing much to the exterior of the Maxima; it still looks fresh and modern, although no doubt that there will be a few minor tweaks to the face of the sedan – perhaps grille, bumper and lights.

2018 Nissan Maxima Specs

Under the hood, Nissan will opt to keep the same 3.5 liter V6 motor, but with a few minor tweaks for horsepower and economy, it’s thought that Nissan will extract around 300 BHP from the motor, more than enough for a sedan of this size.

Power will be sent to the road via a new CVT system and the combination will be enough for a 0 to 60 time of 6.1 seconds and gas economy is around 25 MPG combined.
We have also been told that Nissan intend to reengineer the front suspension and geometry for improved road holding, handling and ride quality, this should give the Maxima a slightly more sporty feel also, although Nissan have to be careful not to go too far with the ‘sports’ side of it.

2018 Nissan Maxima Equipment

As for tech, we believe that the infotainment system will be capable of live music streaming (although we aren’t sure how that works), wireless charging, Wi-Fi, push button start and driver assist. Further options are available with the trim levels, including a premium leather (including a wrapped steering wheel) and panoramic roof.
