2018 Nissan Maxima Release Date, Price and Pictures
To beat the powerful car like Charger or BMW 5 Series, Nissan should help the new 2018 Nissan Maxima with high performance. Nissan should work more because in the previous generation, they could not make it true. As you know that Nissan launched the current model in 2015 and it was a front-wheel drive sedan. It is not as sporty as some, but it is still potential with its luxury and features especially in affordable price in its class. Therefore, the coming of this generation is important to prove that they can break the limit with the mid-life facelift and interesting upgrades to offer.
As we mentioned to you already that the Maxima is designed with front wheel drive platform and it shares some parts with the older model. Nissan should make it more responsive while giving a higher level of comfort. However, they would not change the basic design. Everything will be the same. The Pathfinder also uses the platform for 2018 Nissan Maxima. We hope it is going to come with more than just a mild facelift. It should go with some upgrades. For example, they can start with the same front wheel drive chassis as the current model but Nissan still has a chance to install the all-wheel drive system in the Pathfinder and then remove the CVT gearbox. The use of all-wheel drive system is good as long as it is mated to normal automatic.
It has an actual cockpit to give all information that driver needs. There is also a new set of safety features as well as new infotainment system. The sporty model will go with better seats and unique upholstery to make it stands out as the new 2018 Nissan Maxima.
It seems that there will be no new engine to offer. The base model is still designed with 2.5 liters naturally aspirated inline-four while the higher end model will still go with the same V6 engine and 3.5 liters as before. It is possible if Nissan will develop their brand new 3.0 liter twin-turbo VR30DDT V6 engine that is also used by Q50 Infiniti with the impressive result and it can pump out about 300 and 400 hp with tons of torque. 2018 Nissan Maxima by using the latter engine is capable of dealing with its rivals. It is also suggested to have a hybrid model, but Nissan has no suitable performance to apply it.
Most of us are expecting that the company will release the new 2018 Nissan Maxima at the end of 2017 with the price tag that shouldn’t be too far from the current model.
