2022 Nissan Maxima: Performance Features

Powered by the same powertrain, the 2022 Nissan Maxima comes with the 3.5-liter VQ-series V6 engine—also found in the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder. The V6 engine delivers 300 hp at 6,400 rpm and 261 lb.-ft. of torque, which results in a high output of 85.7 hp per liter. The power is transferred to the vehicle’s front wheels via an Xtronic transmission with a manual shift mode, sport tuning, and D-Step shifting logic. Its D-step shifting logic enables smoother acceleration while taking corner exits, while the Sport mode increases the throttle response of the engine and offers more aggressive shifting.

Its drive-focused suspension and chassis balance smoothly, giving optimum stability at higher speeds without affecting the comfort of the passengers. This is because of the multi-link rear suspension with monotube shocks paired with an independent front suspension with stabilizer bars.
