Is it true that the future 2024 Nissan Maxima would be the last model made into production? It’s highly likely, considering that sedan lineup is struggling hard with the current condition. The latest reports claim that Nissan may likely discontinue the sedan Maxima, which also means that the 2024 model would be the last ever. Although it may be one of the flagship vehicles from Nissan, the sales numbers for sedan is continuously decreasing. That’s why Dodge and Toyota are gradually ‘killing’ their sedan lineups.
About Maxima in General
Maxima is designed as a big sedan, but even size doesn’t really help when it comes to sedan. In Europe, sedan category is still appealing, but with the swamped of crossovers and SUVs, they may not last for long.
It’s possible that the upcoming Maxima gets a redesign work. But the 2023 model hasn’t even been available yet so we can’t really understand what the 2024 has in store. If the company decides not to discontinue it, it’s possible that they are going to redesign it. It’s the only option. The 2022 model, however, came with a new standard feature only and it’s a huge disappointment.
Up until now, there is no official confirmation of what Nissan is going to do with the Maxima. Are they going to discontinue it? Are they going to redesign it? Are they going to upgrade the big sedan or change the platform? All of these questions remain unanswered.
Powertrain and Performance
It seems that the 2024 Nissan Maxima won’t experience any change for their current engine lineup. It runs on V6 gas unit with 3.5 liter capacity, delivering 300 hp and 260 Nm of torque. It also comes as front wheel driving system (for the standard feature) along with auto CVT transmission. Is there any possibility of the hybrid version? For now, it’s unlikely. In terms of mechanical aspect, it seems that the vehicle won’t get any upgrades or change, unless for the auto 9 speed transmission, which is rumored to be available soon.
If everything goes as planned, the Maxima would be available in 2023. The exact date is still unknown, but it’s most likely after the middle of 2023.
Q and A

A: It’s hard to tell. Nissan hasn’t confirmed anything, but it’s what everyone suspects or predicts.

A: It’s difficult to tell. The starting price is around $37,000 which isn’t exactly an affordable tag.
Q: What’s the biggest challenge Nissan has to face?
