WardsAuto has named the 2016 Nissan Maxima's new 3.5-liter VQ-series V6 engine to its annual "Wards 10 Best Engines"list for 2016, a prestigious honor that has been a staple in the automotive industry since it first began in 1994.
A specially wrapped and equipped new 2016 Nissan Maxima will serve as the official Safety Car at Virginia International Raceway, located near Danville, Virginia, during the Oak Tree Grand Prix this weekend, Aug. 21-23.
Nissan is a brand on the move. And on a roll. The past two years have seen the back-to-back introductions of the segment-busting 2014 Rogue and 2015 Murano, which helped drive Nissan to record 2014 calendar year sales of 1,269,565 (+12.2%) in the United States.
There are many ways to celebrate car culture and historic vehicles. One is in museums, the other on the road. For this year's Monterey Motorsports Reunion, Nissan is taking a pair of museum cars – a 1967 Datsun 411 and 1972 Datsun 510 – filling the tires and gas tanks and putting them on the road. Throw in a showroom-fresh 2016 Nissan Maxima and you've got a rolling exhibition called "The Evolution of the Sports Sedan."
Though the all-new 2016 Nissan Maxima only went on sale earlier this month, a new Maxima SR Midnight is already raising the bar for sporty style and sophistication. The new vehicle, which adds a selection of factory and dealer-installed accessories to a black-on-black Maxima SR, debuts this week during the BET Experience in Los Angeles. Nissan is once again the official automotive sponsor of the four-day event, which takes place at LA Live and includes concerts, fashion shows and other events.
The wait is over. After its buzz-generating debut at the recent New York International Auto Show, the 2016 Maxima has arrived at Nissan dealerships nationwide. As Nissan's flagship sedan, the all-new eighth-generation design takes the company's best-known nameplate into new territory with its boldest styling, most powerful engine and highest level of available safety and connected technology features yet.
Nissan promised that the 2016 Nissan Maxima lives up to its "4-Door Sports Car" nickname when it revealed the all-new, eighth-generation sport sedan's design at the recent New York International Auto Show.
