The 40th-anniversary edition is based on the top-line Platinum trim.
It will be priced from $44,345 in the US, or $2,125 more than the Platinum.
It will feature a number of unique touches including a two-tone paint scheme.
Although the Nissan Maxima has fallen from its pedestal as one of the greatest sport sedans of all, it carries on as a competent and attractive large midsize car. 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:
Unique two-tone Ruby Slate Gray Pearl exterior color with black roof
Exclusive 19-inch gloss black aluminum-alloy wheels
Black exterior finishers and trim badges, including 40th Anniversary badge
Black exhaust finishers
Red semi-aniline, leather-appointed seating with 40th Anniversary embossing
Red contrast interior stitching
Satin Dark Chrome interior faceted finishers
White speedometer and tachometer faces reminiscent of past Maxima models
Heated rear seats
Powering all versions of the 2021 Nissan Maxima is the 300-horsepower 3.5-litre V6 engine mated to an Xtronic continuously variable transmission driving the front wheels.
