2016 Nissan Maxima Preview - Nissan of Lake Charles

We have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the brand new 2016 Nissan Maxima since we first saw on commercials during the Big Game. In fact, we’ve waited longer for this model than most because it hasn’t been released since the 2014 model year! We’ve got some information about the Maxima from the engine specs to how it came to be this year! Check out all the details below.


The Maxima has been around for a long time in Nissan’s history. In fact, the first vehicle to wear this nameplate was still under the Datsun logo. The first model created with the Maxima name was created in 1981 and is considered Nissan’s longest selling nameplate to date.
The Nissan Maxima continued to do well all the way until the early 2000’s when the Nissan Altima was introduced. Then with a strong competitor within the same company, the Nissan Maxima had little to offer that the Altima didn’t already have. Sales continuously dropped, despite many redesigns and upgrades. Because of this, the 2016 Nissan Maxima almost didn’t happen, but Nissan took a risk and developed what we are anxiously waiting for in the 2016 Nissan Maxima. 

Specs and Features

Have we mentioned that we can’t wait for the new 2016 Nissan Maxima? Well we are very excited for this model because of the some of the features and upgrades that it will have. The newly redesigned Maxima looks more modern with its sleek yet sporty outward appearance.

In addition to the new looks, The 2016 Nissan Maxima has gained more power with a newer 3.5L V6 Engine that gets 300 Horsepower! Add the new luxurious features like the heated steering wheel and suede seats, and you’ve got a sedan that is above its class! In response to competing with its same make rival, the Altima, the Maxima also includes new features not found on the Altima like intelligent cruise control and more.


We hope to see the new Maxima in store soon to see just how beautiful they are in person, but until then, we will have to make do with finding out more information! Be sure to keep an eye out for the full details on the 2016 Nissan Maxima as we will be doing a complete overview of this model once we’ve got it for sale here at Nissan of Lake Charles!
