The 2023 Nissan Maxima is now available to test-drive, purchase and lease at Empire Lakewood Nissan, which is the local Nissan dealership serving Denver Lakewood Longmont Colorado. The Maxima is a midsize sedan that has long served as the flagship sedan in the Nissan lineup. It boasts a 300-horsepower engine and is available in a sportier configuration with a performance suspension.
The 2023 model continues the eighth Maxima generation. Nissan has not made major changes to the model, but it has made a number of refinements to the standard and optional equipment.
Every 2023 Nissan Maxima near Denver is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. The Maxima is designed as a front-wheel-drive sedan. That is the only drive layout available, and power is sent to the front wheels via a continuously variable transmission.
The Nissan Maxima has been selected as an IIHS Top Safety Pick+. The current-gen Maxima has also been awarded five-star overall safety rating by the NHTSA. Standard equipment includes automatic headlamps, automatic high beams, a rearview camera, driver attention monitoring, adaptive cruise control with a traffic sign reader, front and rear collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic warning and lane departure warning. The SR and Platinum upgrade the camera system with a 360-degree surround-view camera and add lane departure intervention and front and rear parking sensors.
Keyless entry and ignition are standard equipment for the Maxima. The SR is configured as a sports sedan whereas the SV is a traditional sedan and the Platinum is a more upscale version of it. Therefore, the SR has a sports suspension that provides better handling at higher speeds. It also has steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters that give you easier access to the manual shifting mode of the transmission.
The SV is the most affordable Maxima and provides great value at this price point. The Platinum is the Maxima’s luxury version of the traditional sedan. The SR is a sport sedan with a sport-tuned suspension. It has a more upscale cabin than the SV and can be customized in line with the top trim.
The Maxima SV and Platinum trims are available in five exterior colors: Brilliant Silver Metallic, Deep Blue Pearl, Gun Metallic, Scarlet Ember Tintcoat and Super Black. The SR has a sportier aesthetic that is exclusive to it and limited to the Gun Metallic and Super Black paints. A Charcoal interior is standard across the board, and the SV and Platinum trims offer Cashmere as an option.
