2018 Nissan Maxima

Tuesday, November 15th 2016. | Nissan

A year ago, we have seen the release of the current Nissan Maxima and it means that it is impossible to see the new 2018 Nissan Maxima with some important novelties and changes. We know that Nissan has this car as one of their most popular models especially for full-size sedan market. Producing this car is just like a very long tradition for the company. It is totally a hard work that they can present this car since the first debut was started about 35 years ago that was in 1981. Up to now, they have released for about eight generation and we can say that this is a great achievement they could do. The previous model was released in 2015 and we think it will be almost identical to the 2018 model but with smaller updates, new features and more visual tweaks or new color options, 2018 model can be better than before.

So, this is a full-size sedan and its presence is very important for Nissan to keep its dominance on the market. Its previous model has good position and this latest generation may go with some novelties. The characteristics will be retained because it is still fresh and there is no urgency for its modifications. But, it is possible to see small novelties for its design as the sign of its development. For example, buyers who want to anticipate its arrival will see the new color options to give wider options in 2018 Maxima.


2018 Nissan Maxima has no drastic changes for the cabin and even it is totally the same as before. The company doesn’t even give any changes inside because the interior has been upgraded and redesigned in 2015. So, it is better to not expect any small tweaks. To make it different from the current model, it will go with some new standard features.


As what you will see inside the cabin, Nissan also has no plan to change the current engine for 2018 Nissan Maxima. They definitely will carry over the same popular 3.5 liter and V6 engine but it is more powerful, thanks for some revisions which also helps the car to have better economy. It will be able to produce about 300 hp and it means that the current output can be increased by 10 hp or more. The engine will be mated to CVT transmission and it is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds. For the fuel economy, it is about 25 mpg in combined that is slightly improved than before.

Release Date and Price

2018 Nissan Maxima wouldn’t get any important changes and we are pretty sure that the cost will be close to the current model which is about $33,500 for the base. Its release can be around the end of 2017.
