Engine & Transmission
Maxima's Legendary VQ V6 Engine:
The legendary VQ V6 engine is found in many of Nissan's high-performance models. The 2022 Maxima is a model that benefits from having this 3.5-litre V6 engine that puts out healthy output figures of 300 horsepower. Some of this engine's highlights include sodium-filled exhaust valves, anodized pistons, and a high-flow tuned induction system.
Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission):
Tuned to suit enthusiasts' taste, the Xtronic CVT provides dynamic step shifting, wider gear ratio coverage, and an adaptive shift controller. This transmission delivers a well-connected drive without compromising fuel economy.
Drive Mode Selector:
By pressing the Sport mode button, your Maxima will benefit from better throttle response, steering feel, and transmission shifting. It also adapts the available Active Sound Enhancement system to bring a deeper engine tone into the cabin.
Driver-Focused Suspension & Chassis:
The Maxima's independent multi-link rear suspension with monotube shocks provides thrilling performance and comfortable ride quality while lowering the stance for better handling.
Sport Mode Power Meter:
When you engage Sport Mode, the engine's essential information is displayed in real-time through the cluster.
Integrated Dynamics Control Module
Intelligent Engine Brake:
The Intelligent Engine Brake technology helps you achieve secure and smooth braking to avoid a jerky ride. It utilizes the Xtronic CVT to apply engine braking to assist with stopping, which improves braking performance considerably.
Intelligent Trace Control:
With Intelligent Trace Control, your Maxima will constantly monitor the surroundings and wheel speed to determine tight cornering situations. It will assist handling by applying braking pressure to specific wheels to help you steer smoothly through bends.
Active Ride Control:
While commuting on uneven terrain or bumpy roads, your Maxima will use the Active Ride Control to take advantage of the brakes and engine torque to smooth out the ride quality.
Corner with Confidence:
Thanks to its sport-tuned track-inspired suspension, the Maxima SR lets you confidently take on the road. This sporty trim provides enhanced driving characteristics with its stiffer springs and a larger front stabilizer bar.
Mark Your Mark:
You can enhance your Maxima's appearance with 19-inch gloss-black double-spoke aluminum wheels.
The Aero Look:
The Maxima SR gets other styling elements like the rear sport spoiler to enhance its sporty appeal further.
Drive in Style:
You can bring a new feel of sportiness and elegance to your Maxima's interior by opting for the SR trim, which gets dynamic diamond-quilted inserts for the seats made from Italian Alcantara. Usually, you will only find Italian Alcantara in high-end performance vehicles, which heightens the driving experience inside the 2022 Maxima's cabin.
Power at Close Range:
With the column-mounted paddle shifters, you will always be able to shift to the perfect gear ratio to suit your driving needs, even when the steering wheel is turned 90 degrees. With these paddle shifters always being a fingertip away, you will have complete control even mid-way through a corner.
