The Maxima is back! Enjoy the pictures of the all new 2009 Nissan Maxima in the photo gallery.
In its seventh generation, Nissan has continued to build upon the qualities that have made the Maxima a hit while also improving the exterior design, the interior cockpit, and the performance. Nissan’s flagship sedan will be available in two models, the Maxima 3.5 S and the Maxima 3.5 SV.
On sale this summer, the 2009 Maxima comes standard with a 3.5 L V6 engine that produces 290 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 35 horsepower and 9 lb-ft of torque over the 2008 Maxima engine. Both models will also come with a revised Xtronic CVT with manual model and a new “Ds (drive sport) mode”; paddle shifters will be available.
