Performance Features of the 2022 Nissan Maxima 

The 2022 Nissan Maxima is the Nissan brand’s offering in the sporty luxury sedan segment. There are quite a few updates in the 2022 model year for the Nissan Maxima. It amalgamates style, comfort, technology, and performance with ease of driving. At Glendale Nissan in Glendale Heights, IL, we elaborate on the performance features of the 2022 Nissan Maxima. 

What Engine Is Available on the 2022 Nissan Maxima? 

The 2022 Nissan Maxima is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that has an output of 300 hp and a 261 lb.-ft. of torque rating. It is paired with an Xtronic Transmission with manual shift mode, D-Step logic, and sport tuning. This transmission lacks fixed ratios. Thus, it is always in the right gear at the right time. The 2022 Maxima comes with a Drive Mode Selector, including Sport and Normal modes. These adjust throttle response, transmission, and the steering feel. The Normal Mode maximizes fuel economy by reducing fuel consumption. On the other hand, the Sport Mode enhances acceleration.  

Fuel efficiency is further alleviated due to the multi-point fuel injection system, which uses an individual fuel injector for each cylinder. What’s more, this fuel injection system ensures that you don’t need to crank up the 2022 Maxima to make it work if it’s cold weather.
