Nissan likes to think of the Maxima as its "4-Door Sports Car", so it receives the full aftermarket treatment from well-known Nissan race driver and builder Steve Millen. Modifications include engine airflow management improvements, rear roof and deck lid spoilers, custom wheels and tires and a two-tone black-and-silver paint treatment. Like any good SEMA project, many of these parts can already be purchased for your commuter 2009 Maxima.

Nissan announced that the 2009 Maxima , launched last June, will cost more due to increased raw materials costs. Effective immediately, the price for the Maxima 3.5 S and Maxima 3.5 SV are $30,160 and of $32,860 respectively. Both models are equipped with an advanced 3.5-liter V6 and CVT transmission.

For the extra price, you will also gain extra horsepower. For 2009, the VQ-series V6 engine will deliver 290 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque (estimated), an increase of 35 horsepower and 9 lb-ft of torque over the 2008 Maxima.

Nissan announced pricing on the all-new, flagship 2009 Nissan Maxima , which goes on sale today at Nissan dealers nationwide. The seventh generation Maxima returns to its heritage as "The 4-Door Sports Car(TM)," combining thrilling performance with premium sedan comfort, quality and amenities.

It features all-new sports styling, a driver-oriented interior and an enhanced 290hp 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine - offering 35 more hp than the previous generation Maxima and better fuel economy (EPA estimated 19 mpg City/26 mpg Highway versus 19/25 mpg for the 2008 Maxima).

The 2009 Maxima is offered in two well-equipped models, Maxima 3.5 S and Maxima 3.5 SV, each equipped with standard 3.5-liter V6 and intelligent Xtronic CVT(TM) (Continuously Variable Transmission). Prices start at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $29,290 for the Maxima 3.5 S and $31,990 for the Maxima 3.5 SV.

The first production model of the all-new 2009 Nissan Maxima today rolled off the assembly line at Nissan North America’s Smyrna, Tenn., manufacturing plant, signaling the return of Nissan’s flagship to its roots as a commanding 4-door sports car.

Sporting a bold new look, as well as a more powerful V6 under the hood, the “Job 1″ 2009 Maxima was driven off the assembly line during a midday celebration attended by Nissan employees and executives.

The 2009 Maxima is built on Nissan’s new D platform that provides responsive handling and virtually eliminates the torque steer associated with high horsepower front wheel drive vehicles.

It also boasts a new Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with manual mode, tuned specifically for Maxima’s sporty driving character.

The Maxima’s 3.5 liter DOHC 24-valve VQ series V6 engine is now rated at 290 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque, increases of 35 horsepower and 9 lb-ft of torque over the 2008 Maxima.
