2023 Nissan Maxima Price From $39,235 For Last Year Of Production

Posted on

If you haven’t already poured it in for the Nissan Maxima, now is the time. The flagship sedan gets a slight price hike for 2023, but it will never be more expensive than it is now. That’s because it won’t exist.

Nissan killed the Maxima in late 2023. The final year of production didn’t offer much change, with the automaker swapping out the old Nissan badge for a new minimalist design. The highest Platinum trim is an exception, as it gets semi-aniline leather seats and flared kick plates.

All trims get a higher price tag as well, with the base Maxima SV starting at $39,235 and the midrange Maxima SR starting at $44,395. That’s a $300 increase for both compared to 2022, but the top-of-the-range Nissan Maxima Platinum 2023 is $1,100 more expensive, starting at $45,345. All prices include the mandatory $1,095 destination fee.

So far, it’s a quiet end to a 42-year journey for a sedan that lasts. It came to life in 1981 as the Datsun Maxima, sending power to the rear wheels via an inline-six engine. Front-wheel drive and V6 engines arrived for the second generation in 1985, now sporting the Nissan badge. That formula endured for the rest of the Maxima’s life, with the current model sporting a 300 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine driving the front wheels via a CVT.

“Maxima is one of the most storied nameplates for Nissan in North America,” a Nissan spokesperson said in an email to Motor1.com. On Wednesday, August 3, we announced to our employees, suppliers and dealers that the current generation Maxima will end production by mid-2023. As part of Nissan’s 2030 Ambition plan, the company prioritizes electric vehicles and advanced technology, and by 2030 , 40 percent of Nissan’s vehicle sales will be fully electrified, with much more to be electrified. In addition, earlier this year Nissan announced two all-new all-electric models at its Canton assembly plant in Mississippi.”

The Maxima is the latest in a long line of sedans that were recently discontinued as SUVs and crossovers became mainstays of family transportation. The Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger will come off the screen in 2023. The Chevrolet Malibu is rumored to be out, as is the Hyundai Sonata. Ford stopped selling sedans in the US a few years ago, but the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord are showing no signs of slowing down.
