2017 Nissan Maxima Gets Standard Apple CarPlay

In-car smartphone connectivity is the way of the future as automakers continue to prove with innovative technology to make driving safer and phone use more hands-free. Nissan is no different and, with the one-year-old redesigned Maxima to work with, there’s a lot to expect. The 2017 Nissan Maxima is on sale now and with five available trims and quite a few new standard features.

Starting at $32,560, the Nissan Maxima S comes with Apple CarPlay as a standard feature. Working with NissanConnect and the Maxima’s eight-inch touchscreen, that increases a driver’s control while on the road without taking their eyes off the wheel.

As you’d expect, all Maxima trims get the technology as a standard feature. At the top of the line is the Maxima Platinum with a starting price just under $40,000. All models come stocked with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque.

Now stocked with Apple CarPlay, the Nissan Maxima, the brand’s flagship sedan, may have gained the upper hand on competitors. Combined with the powerful yet efficient engine, this full-size, four-door sports car could have the edge it needs take down its rivals.

We here at Cronic Nissan are happy to see the Maxima staying at the forefront of connectivity!

2017 Nissan Maxima

New Nissan Maxima is Sportier than Ever for 2016 Model

New Nissan Maxima

The Nissan Maxima has long been touted by its brand as a “four door sports car,” which, as you might imagine, is somewhat of a rare breed. In fact, it sounds mysteriously like a myth—that is, until you actually drive the new Nissan Maxima. The 2016 model is sportier than ever, features a beautiful exterior design, and plenty of interior comfort. So, it’s true—the new Maxima is comfortable both while jetting down the highway and transporting the kids to and from school.

The new Maxima jets out 300 horsepower from a 3.5-liter V6 engine, making it one of the throatier sedans out on the road today. It also gets 261 lb-ft of torque, features an Xtronic CVT, and comes with a Drive Mode Selector that allows you to tweak your driving experience to your exact specifications. You can choose between Normal and Sport modes.

The Nissan Maxima also features an improved body platform, thanks to high-strength steels that both increase the car’s rigidity as well as lowering its weight. It comes with tons of safety technology, from Blind Spot Warning to Intelligent Cruise Control to Forward Emergency Braking, so you can drive with ease and confidence. Come see us at Cronic Nissan to learn more about the Maxima today!

Redesigned Nissan Maxima Ready to Crush Competition as 2016 Model

Redesigned Nissan Maxima

The redesigned Nissan Maxima has a backstory fit for a Hollywood underdog story. Just four years ago, the brand considered axing the nameplate altogether. Now, however, a redesigned version of the sports sedan is hitting the market with an elegant new style, great performance, and huge sales expectations. With all the extra performance features, bells, and whistles added to the Maxima, it’s a safe bet that it will deliver on those expectations as well.

The 2016 Maxima comes in five different trims, all of which are driven by the 3.5-liter V6 engine. That engine gets 300 hp and is matched with a CVT transmission to give it better handling and performance overall. The trims go from the entry S model to the SV, SL, SR, and the top-of-the-line Maxima Platinum model.

The Maxima’s new exterior is also very impressive, showing off a sleeker, low-slung design with a smiling, aggressive front end. There are plenty of fun features inside the cabin, too, including remote-start capability and an 8-inch infotainment screen. “When I look at this car, I’m proudest of the fact that it’s here at all,” said Takeshi Yamaguchi, Nissan North America’s vice president for vehicle engineering and vehicle program management for the new Maxima. “And on top of that, I’m proud of that fact that we took the Maxima beyond where it was, instead of taking it backward.”

Here at Cronic Nissan, we feel the same way. Come see us to learn more about the Maxima, which should be hitting our inventory this June!

New Nissan Maxima Production Starts at Tennessee Plant

New Nissan Maxima

The Nissan brand recently shocked its fans with an all-new design of the flagship Maxima sedan, which was shown off last month at the New York Auto Show. While the reaction was somewhat mixed, most Nissan fans—including us here at Cronic Nissan—love the bold new direction. And we have even more exciting news now—the Maxima recently started production at the Tennessee plant in Smyrna.

Nissan is obviously excited about the new Maxima, and so is the state of Tennessee. The governor was even on hand for a ceremony celebrating the start of production for the new Nissan Maxima.

“With today’s launch, Nissan and Tennessee begin another chapter in their long and successful partnership defined by high-quality vehicles and the innovation of its workforce,” Governor Bill Haslam said at the ceremony. “We want to thank Nissan for continuing to invest here, helping build Tennessee’s reputation as a leading automotive manufacturing state.”

The new Maxima will hit the market this summer. It will come in five different trim levels, all of which feature that sporty and aggressive new design. It also includes Drive Assist Display, optional heated/cooled seats, a Bose audio system, and even a 3.5-liter engine good for 300 horsepower. Come see us here at Cronic Nissan to learn more about the new Maxima and prepare for its arrival this summer!

Sporty 2016 Nissan Maxima Reveal Impressed at NY Auto Show

Nissan Maxima Reveal

Nissan finally revealed the 2016 Maxima model at the New York International Auto Show earlier this month, in the midst of a sea of product launches and major debuts from auto companies all over the world.

The 2016 Maxima has been seriously upgraded on the outside, with a new stylized design that makes the car look sleeker and more aerodynamic. Creased side panels add to a racecar tone that catches the eye.

At the top of the large sedan market, the 2016 Maxima faces some challenges, as U.S. buyers continue to opt for crossovers and smaller SUV’s. However, thanks to the tech upgrades as well as cosmetic changes, Nissan has faith in their new Maxima to turn that around.

Concerning the 2016 Maxima, Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn said “(it) will build on the success that Nissan has achieved in North America. We are expecting it to do great things for us.”
