Default 2019 Nissan Altima Thread

2018 Nissan Altima Price, Engine, Design


The current Altima is a mid-size sedan which has been released back in 2012 and updated quite recently to be more reminiscent of its bigger brother, the Maxima. The car is based on a front wheel drive chassis, and it comes with plenty of features for its class. We have to say that it is one of the very few cars where everything usually works and its only real drawback being the fact that it doesn’t have another badge. Nissan is planning to improve it even further, so the upcoming 2018 Nissan Altima is planned to be an entirely new car.

There are still very few details about it, but it seems that the future Altima is going to use a new modular platform. This will be shared with another medium to large sized cars and at this point, it still is unclear if it will be front or rear wheel drive. Our guess would go on another front wheel drive chassis. However, this time around it would be quite a bit lighter, more rigid and a lot more versatile. This should allow Nissan to make the Altima slightly bigger than before to give it a more aggressive design. The new platform will not mean a new price. We expect the slightly over $23,000 base price to be kept while the V6 version might finally be discontinued in the favor of a new powertrain.



The updated version of the current car looks quite good, but the upcoming 2018 Nissan Altima should get things a bit further. Firstly, we should see an evolution of the current’s design scheme to something a bit more aggressive. Nissan proved that they want to get noticed with the new Maxima and Murano.



Thanks to these two cars, the upcoming Altima is likely going to receive a floating roof effect, blacked out B and C pillars and even a slightly more coupe-like appearance. Surely, it would still have to offer plenty of room for five passengers, but the new platform should allow Nissan to offer more room inside the cabin despite the fact the car will get a sloping roof.

INTERIOR

Just like with the Murano or even the Maxima, the upcoming Nissan Altima should get an all new interior. It should feature a more modern, yet slightly more grown-up, appearance. Also, instead of a rather unappealing gray interior, the new car will feature a more curvaceous look. The dashboard will get nicer air-vents, a more impressive center stack, and no fake chrome inserts. All of these should make the car a much nicer place to be overall.

ENGINE

The current version of the car is being offered with either a 2.5 liter naturally aspirated engine or with a 3.5 liter V6. Both of these are average at best, and none of them is all that great. Instead of these two old powertrains we expect the new 2018 Nissan Altima to get all new turbocharged engines. Most of its competitors already did this move so it would make sense for Nissan to make this step as well. We expect the old 2.5-liter engine to be replaced by a new 1.6 liter turbocharged inline four mills.

This unit has been developed by Nissan, and it is currently being used in quite a few Renault cars. On the Altima, the engine could easily make 195 to 225 horsepower and around 200 lb-ft of torque. For those still wanting for more, one of Renault’s 2 liters turbocharged engines could be installed. These are well known for being capable of close to 300 horsepower while being very reliable, so the Altima would easily become one of the favorites in its class.

The demise of the 6 cylinder engines in the family sedans. Honda Toyota Subaru Nissan. They like it to. Prior each manufacturer had to keep up with each other. But now that the field is leveled they don't have worry. Makes things easy once you transfer over. one tranny for both engines now and other needed parts. Plus, the V6 in the family sedan was a hidden bargain for mature people without egos. So now they push you into their upscale brands Lexus Infinity with bigger profit margins.

maybe we should wait until further details come out as to what the powertrain lineup will be before declaring any number of cylinders or displacements dead

What's gonna happen with the Maxima? I'd think the Altima would get the turbo 4 engines in line with the competition and the Maxima would stick with the NA or a turbo V6.

Not sure about that, several of those companies still have V6's, or are at least planning turbo 4's to replace them.

The only one to outright eliminate the V6/high power option has been Mazda in the current Mazda6.

Nissan has been working on a new variable compression engine - I'd expect to see a version of that in whatever this turns out to be.

Honda Too, Toyota uses their V6 in a lot of other crap so it's hanging on. Soon as Honda dropped the V6 in the Pilot the writing was on the wall.

notice how they phrased the V6 engine how it could be dropped off. Two speed CVT, isn't that a paradox? Also, another article about the Nismo.


2018 Nissan Maxima


One of the most popular sedans nowadays, from Japanese company Nissan, is Maxima. A lot of interest cause every new model, and so it is with upcoming 2018 year car. This one wasn’t confirmed yet, but when spokesmen come out with this announcement, we are sure many buyers will be looking for info about new sedan. The 2018 Nissan Maxima can bring some new things, from revolutionary design, to new engine. Even if it doesn’t go into new generation, new features and equipment will set some standards in the industry. According to what we know now, this sedan is worth of waiting.

2018 Nissan Maxima engine

Under the hood of the 2018 Nissan Maxima will be 3.5-l V6 engine that can deliver 300 horsepower. Engine is mated to a new 2-speed CVT. However, V6 drivetrain can be dropped off. Instead we could get some more economical unit, but with similar performance. Engineers in Nissan are working on it. New Maxima will likely get some sport-tuned parts, like suspension, 19-inch wheels and Dynamics-control module. Higher trims are getting much more, but they also cost over the base model price. Estimated mileage for 2018 Maxima sedan is predicted to be 25 mpg in city and 33 mpg in highway conditions. This is better than other full-size sedans.

2018 Nissan Maxima redesign

The 2018 Nissan Maxima will get modern design, with many stylish details, boosting its appearance. More headroom is predicted for new sedan, with larger truck. Standard features from base S model are upgraded for SL, SR, SV and Platinum vehicles. Among other stuff, we can find Live music streaming, wireless charging and wireless internet in infotainment specifications. Platinum model will be packed with premium Ascot leather interior, including steering wheel and panoramic dual panel moonroof. Driver assist display and push button start are just few or the features that making the drive easier.

2018 Nissan Maxima price

Full-size sedan has great specs, but it has its price. Base models won’t be less than $33,000 when new 2018 Nissan Maxima appears, and experts believe it will be during last quarter of 2017. Finally with more equipment coming with higher trims, price raises, up to $40,000 and over for Platinum edition.

A New Nissan NISMO Vehicle is Debuting Next Month
Is the Nissan Maxima NISMO going to debut at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show?


The Japanese automaker has confirmed that a new NISMO product will enjoy its global debut at the annual auto show in Los Angeles in mid-November, but it won’t share details on what it will be.

Last year, Nissan showed off the Sentra NISMO Concept in L.A., so there’s a possibility the production version will be introduced. Spy photographer Brian Williams also believes it will be the Sentra NISMO, considering that there have been prototypes caught testing on public roads.

There’s also a chance that it will be a new model getting the NISMO treatment, and if we had to guess, we would put our money on the Maxima given all the recent rumors.

SEE ALSO: Nissan’s Maxima NISMO Could Look This Good

Nissan will also be showing off the Nissan Rogue Rogue One: Star Wars Limited Edition in L.A., so another option would be a Rogue NISMO model to also tie into the movie. But knowing Nissan, the automaker won’t have two different Rogues to display at the auto show.

Either way, we will have to wait until early November for more details on the next NISMO product that will hopefully make it to production.

Default Nissan axes Altima In AUS

Nissan axes Altima


Nissan Australia has axed its Altima and Pulsar, leaving it without a sedan and with only three niche passenger cars.

The mid-size Altima sedan, which forms the basis of Nissan’s Supercars motorsport campaign, has been discontinued because it will not be upgraded to meet the stricter new Euro 5 emissions standard now in effect.

However, Nissan says the axing of Altima (sales of which fell from a height of almost 1800 in 2014 to less than 900 last year, with just over 150 sold so far this year), won’t affect its Supercars program, which is locked in until the end of the 2018 season.

“At present, we have stocks of the Nissan Altima but we won’t be importing any more of this model in the future,” said Nissan Australia in a statement today.

“The reason relates to the investment required to update the Australian-market Altima’s engines to meet the new Euro5b emissions standard in Australia.

“Nissan has decided to not make this investment so, for now, the Altima won’t be in our new-vehicle catalogue in the future. As a result, production of the Altima sedan will stop for Australia.”

Meantime, after axing its Micra and Pulsar hatchbacks in April 2016 and its Pulsar sedan earlier this month, Nissan Australia now says the Pulsar won’t return in Euro 5 guise and is yet to confirm a local release for Europe’s new Micra.

Last year Nissan sold almost 5800 Pulsars, making it its fourth best selling model after the X-TRAIL (18,903), Navara (16,755) and QASHQAI (12,259).

The move leaves Nissan Australia with only the GT-R and 370Z sports cars, the slow-selling LEAF electric hatch, the recently upgraded Navara ute and five SUVs.

They are the pint-size JUKE, which now kicks off Nissan range at $23,490, the small QASHQAI (a facelifted version of which arrives late this year), the volume-selling X-TRAIL mid-sizer, an upgrade for which lands in May, the recently updated Pathfinder and the Y62 Patrol.

After the first three months of this year Nissan’s Australian sales are down more than 13 per cent to a little over 15,000, as registrations of the discontinued Micra, Pulsar and Y61 Patrol grind to a halt.

Default 2019 Nissan Altima to debut at 2018 New York auto show

Quote:
There's a new Nissan Altima coming for the 2019 model year, and it debuts on March 28 at the 2018 New York International Auto Show.

The car represents the sixth generation for the Altima nameplate and a core pillar of Nissan's sales strategy here in the United States. The last time the Altima was redesigned was for 2013.

Demand for sedans may be on the wane but they still represent a healthy chunk of sales for many automakers, including Nissan. In the case of the Altima, Nissan sold 254,996 of the mid-size sedans in the U.S. in 2017. That's down from the nameplate's high of 335,644 in 2014, though it's still nothing to sneeze at. It means Nissan will be investing big in its new sedan.

A prototype was spotted testing last summer and Nissan has also previewed the design with the Vmotion 2.0 concept car unveiled at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Unfortunately, there isn't much else to go on though you can count on Nissan not shaking things up too much. Expect a 4-cylinder as the standard option and possibly V-6 and hybrid options for those seeking additional performance. Front-wheel drive with a CVT is expected to be the standard setup, though we've heard the car may benefit from an all-wheel-drive option. We've also heard the car will come with electronic driver aids from Nissan and Infiniti's ProPilot tech basket.

The new Altima won't have an easy job when it arrives. Key rivals like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry were redesigned for 2018. An updated Chevrolet Malibu is also due for 2019.

Hopefully we'll have more details soon. In the meantime, learn about some of the other vehicles appearing at the N.Y. auto show over at our dedicated hub.

Default Confirmed Nissan Altima Will Be All Wheel Drive

March 28 New York Auto Shown New Nissan Altima Debut

Book March 28 on your calendars. It’s the day when the all-new Nissan Altima will make its official debut during the 2018 New York Auto Show. It’s one of the best-kept secrets in the industry at the moment, but a new report indicates the vehicle will gain an all-wheel drive system.

That’s not officially announced yet, but Christopher Reed, vice president of components engineering at Nissan Technical Center North America, has revealed the information during the recording of Autoline After Hours, a weekly web auto industry-focused show.

Earlier this month, Nissan confirmed plans to debut its next-generation Altima sedan at the New York Auto Show in March, but other than verifying the date -- March 28 -- company officials haven't said much about what to expect from the new midsize family car.

At least not intentionally.

During a recording of Autoline After Hours, a weekly auto industry-focused internet show, Nissan's Christopher Reed alluded to the sixth-generation Altima receiving an important new feature in its arsenal: all-wheel drive. Reed, who is vice president of components engineering at Nissan Technical Center North America, was actually on Thursday's show to talk about the 2018 Leaf EV.


A member of Autoline's audience had written in to ask Reed if the Leaf would ever receive AWD, and he responded by saying:

"We know that in the future... especially in the North, people like all-wheel-drive cars, right? And we're talking about coming out with all-wheel drive on the Altima and that kind of stuff, so we're doing some new things there."

Reed's remark corroborates long-held rumors that the sedan will get the grips-at-all-corners technology. When reached by Roadshow, a spokesman would only say, "Nissan will announce full details of the 2019 all-new Altima at the New York International Auto Show, until then, no, we have no further information to share at this time."

Nissan's Vmotion 2.0 concept points towards next Altima

Imbuing the next Altima with all-wheel drive seems to make a lot of sense. After all, more and more buyers are leaving traditional sedans for crossover SUVs, often in part because most models offer the foul weather-friendly technology. Indeed, Nissan's best-selling new vehicle is now the Rogue -- the Altima has relinquished the brand's sales crown.

If the 2019 Altima does gain AWD, it probably won't be standard equipment, and it definitely won't be alone in its segment -- the Subaru Legacy and Ford Fusion already offer it. However, the Altima will be the highest-volume mainstream sedan to offer the technology -- Honda's latest Accord and Toyota's Camry are exclusively front-wheel drive, and the same goes for popular models like the Chevrolet Malibu, Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima.

Along with available AWD and a host of new safety and convenience features, we're expecting for the new Altima to gain markedly more aggressive styling, likely influenced by Nissan's Vmotion 2.0 concept (shown above), a show car that debuted at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show.

We'll know much more on March 28, when the new Altima debuts in New York at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Now that the Geneva Motor Show is mostly behind us, our attention is slowly starting to turn towards the next big show: New York. Nissan will be there to unveil the all-new Altima they’ve been testing out on public roads since at least August 2017 when we shared our first batch of spy shots. Attached at the end of the article is the most recent set of photos painting a more accurate picture of what to expect from the real thing.

The midsize family sedan will be going through some major design changes and will borrow styling cues from its bigger brother, the Maxima. To some extent, Nissan previewed the design of the 2019 Altima back in January last year when they unveiled the Vmotion 2.0 concept (pictured below) with its sharp body, though you shouldn’t be expecting a design as sleek and futuristic as the showcar had.

Featuring a more sculpted body with lots of lines and creases, the revamped Altima is expected to represent a significant departure in terms of design compared to its predecessor. A bigger V-motion grille will dominate the front fascia and will be flanked by slender LED headlights (the prototype below had the cheaper halogen setup).

Beyond the refreshed design, some big changes will occur inside the cabin, with a standalone touchscreen display positioned up high on the center console. The air vents in the middle will be moved lower to make room for the infotainment and overall it looks like the interior will become more upscale for the Altima’s next iteration.

While technical specifications are scarce at the moment, we do know Nissan will sell its overhauled midsize sedan with an optional all-wheel-drive system. A slightly longer wheelbase is expected and that should translate into more space inside the cabin for passengers. Engines are a complete mystery at this point, but we won’t be too surprised if the new Altima will be sold with four- and six-cylinder units hooked up to a CVT.

We will know what’s what on March 28 when the wraps will come off the 2019 Nissan Altima at the New York Auto Show.

Default 2019 Nissan Altima adds AWD, variable-compression engine







Quote:
An 8-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard.

Nissan's sedan lineup offers plenty of sensibility, but when it came to tech, it was never toward the front of the pack. That's due to change with the introduction of the 2019 Nissan Altima, thanks to a few key introductions.

The Altima is much more handsome than before. It borrows some elements -- mostly in the lights and on the sides -- from the Vmotion 2.0 concept that debuted in Detroit in 2017. Nissan's company grille is still here, but it's been massaged to better blend with the rest of the body.

Compared to the outgoing Altima, the 2019 model is 1.1 inches lower, 1 inch longer and 0.9-inch wider. The wheelbase is 1.9 inches longer, too, which means shorter overhangs than before, which adds to the car's improved visual presence. LED headlights and fog lights are available if you like bright, fancy lights.


There is some Vmotion 2.0 concept in there, but much of it was diluted in the move to production. So it goes.



The changes that matter most happen underneath the body panels. All-wheel drive is finally available as an option for any vehicle equipped with the new base engine, a 2.5-liter I4. This new I4 puts out 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, and while the displacement is the same as before, about 80 percent of the engine features new or redesigned parts.

What you can't get with all-wheel drive, though, is the second implementation of Nissan's VC-Turbo engine. Debuting first on the Infiniti QX50, this engine can change its compression ratio on the fly, offering performance or fuel efficiency depending on the driver's needs. It puts out 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, and it's expected to deliver double-digit fuel economy improvements over the 3.5-liter V6 it replaces. Both engines have standard CVTs. The VC-Turbo engine is only available on the SR and Platinum trims.

The interior is no-nonsense, but it looks much more premium than before. You still get a healthy cluster of physical switches for both the infotainment system and the climate control, but the layering is nice and the "floating" screen doesn't get in the way. On first glance, I dig it.

In addition to its new looks, all 2019 Altimas receive the same standard infotainment system, packing an 8.0-inch touchscreen with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can trick it out with NissanConnect's connected services, which includes over-the-air updates and remote vehicle unlocking and starting.

If safety is what you're after, you'll be happy to know that automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning and a driver alertness monitor are all standard. Optional equipment includes a 360-degree camera system and traffic sign recognition. ProPilot Assist, which is capable of holding the vehicle in a single highway lane, is standard on SV, SL and Platinum trims. Those same trims also receive a new rear-facing autobrake as standard.

The 2019 Nissan Altima is available in five trims -- S, SR, SV, SL and Platinum -- and it goes on sale in the fall. Pricing will be announced closer to its release.

I wish they would make another proper Altima SE-R. To this day I still have fond memories of ownership, including a few track days with it where I harassed many BBW 335i and the like owners.

If Nissan would have made AWD available with the turbo powertrain instead of just with the N/A for the new model it may have been possible to make a 290-315 bhp Altima for those willing to test the durability limits of the new engine.
