It’s been 40 years since its introduction and to commemorate the occasion, Nissan is launching a special 40th Anniversary Edition of their flagship sedan.

The 2021 Nissan Maxima 40th Anniversary Edition will be based on the already well-appointed Platinum trim and add the following unique and defining features:
