    I am really curious if my favorite feature of the Altima , the huge unrefuelled range of the 4 cyl version will carry over.

    I hope it does. I hate stopping for gas and now I've been driving sometimes a whole tank of gas in a 24 he period it pays to have a big tank.

    I got a 2016 Altima in March of 2017 as a leftover. 2.5SL. It was a good deal so I got it because they were trying 2 get rid of the 2016 leftovers.

    If anyone heard there seems to be confirmation on a Nissan Altima awd but we will see. It was kind of implies in an interview but we shall see

    So it looks like the 2019 Maxima will be a refresh and the 2019 Murano will get a refresh also. Do you think that they will debut alongside the Altima at the end of this month?. What about sentra?

    The 6th gen Altima will be revealed to the press tomorrow (Wednesday) morning and will be at the show which opens to the public on Friday. It has been confirmed to have an AWD option and semi-autonomous drive like the Q50/60. Nothing much else is known. Power train and chassis are a mystery, though it’s assumed the QR/VQ options will live on with others possibly joining the party.

    I hope that they continue to offer the 3.5 trim as mine (a 3rd gen) has been excellent the past two years. I wish I had bought it new rather than my old Majestic Blue 2.5 which was totaled in New Orleans in 2016. V6 Altimas feel like twice the car of the admittedly nice 4 cylinder ones. If they kill the 3.5 for fleet mpg and/or to make the Maxima more exclusive I will shed a tear.

    The death of the vq!

    That's right the Altima will not have the vq

    Yes, the V6 Altima is gone after a 17 year run. Get those 2018 3.5 SL models while you can! They’ll be a collector’s item some day despite the (mostly deserved) hate for the CVT. Manual 3.5 SEs and SE-Rs from the 4th and 3rd gens will be like unicorns. I knew that the VQ would go eventually, especially with the Maxima remaining FWD and needing differentian— come to think of it, will even the 9th gen Maxima have a VQ? It will more likely get AWD, the VC-turbo, and a top trim with the VR30DDTT from the Q50/60. The VQ was old but still great in non-luxury vehicles. It may live on a few more years in Nissan SUVs but after the early 2020s it’s likely done.

    I just have some of the display model at the NY Auto Show in red. It was the only one there.

    I'll try to get them up here but I have to find the stupid cable for my phone.

    Honestly they aren't much different from what you see here so I'll embed this for viewers.



    I think it looked really nice. Styling is modern but also shows restraint, which is very rare among today's Japanese cars. Even the Maxima, which I think looks great, goes a bit overboard from some angles. This looks Audi-esque from a lot of viewpoints, especially the rear, which is low, wide, and nicely squared/defined.

    Interior materials look great but you couldn't touch them or sit in it. Kinda sad because, to my pleasant surprise, you could sit in the 2019 Toyota Avalons which were pre-production prototypes. That car and an amazing interior for the price (real wood and aluminum, mostly soft-touch, nice seats, roomy) but I digress.

    My initial reaction was kind of lukewarm to the all-new Altima. To me, I felt that they kind of took away from its freshness with the refresh of the current gen. But I think it is very good looking. I really liked the refresh of the current gen, but it showed its age quickly and kinda comes off cheap in the base trims. But yes, I agree with the Audi-esque look. Oddly, I saw a top of the line A4 and somehow grew an appreciation of the new Altimas sharp lines. It looks very good in photos, but I think it's going be awesome in person and look upscale. I do look forward to seeing it in other colors and trims, particularly the SR model.

    Sidenote: This seems to be somewhat of an early reveal for the Altima, hence there only being 1 at the show. I thought it would be on sale this summer debuting in NY, but it's not going to be on sale until the fall.

    2 things I don't like are the turn signals in the lower front bumper(wish they went LED with those) and that the taillights don't look to be LEDs, which is just WEIRD!

    The interior, though VERY on trend with the tablet-style nav, is very nice and a HUGE step up from the current gen, which seems very Buick to me. Think it is about on par with the Accord.

    It'll be interesting to see how it stacks up to the new Camry and Accord. I love the new SE/XSE Camrys. And I don't care what people are saying about the new Accord, in the Touring and Sport trims, that thing looks down-right stately! That long, arching character line and the deceptively long looking hood add a presence to that car when it's paired with the 19s.

    As far as powertrain, I saw the VC-Turbo coming and replacing the VQ, especially when the details of the new QX50 came out. It makes sense. It should still allow the Altima to put down its standard VQ powered 5.9 sec 0-60 (QX50 does it in 6.4). Don't think it'll match the potent Accord 2.0t... that thing is QUICK!

    I think the Maxima may stay V6 only. That'll help create some separation between it and the Altima. I hope that AWD is standard on the next-gen Maxima. But based on the spy pics of the upcoming refresh, it seems they are tackling the little details to make it seem more upmarket, like LED rear turn signals and the stylized LED headlights.

    The current Altima looks surprisingly good IMO, and is perhaps the best refresh it's ever gotten. I still have to look twice when I see one to make sure what it is. And this '19 looks good, too, with a definite Maxima vibe to it.

    I know everyone is tired of hearing it, but I just have to wonder what this new Altima would be like with a torque converter 8-speed transmission instead of the CVT. I think it would completely change the car's character.

    That said, I'm not satisfied that the VC engine is ready for prime time. Surely Nissan has tested it thoroughly, but it seems to have sprung out of the woodwork and into cars in record time. It will be a collosal death blow to Nissan if it fails.

    Make no mistake, if the VC-turbo is not ready for prime time and is a reliability nightmare like DAS, intouch, and the 2013 Altima/Pathfinder CVTs, then it will sink Nissan. Mike is right.

    There is no more margin for error. Toyota is making fun cars, if at times a bit weird-looking, with up-to-date, proper chassis and power trains. Nissan is growing in sales, but not enough to get near them, and more importantly, they've completely surrendered the relaible + fun to drive combo to Mazda and Toyota.

    They can't afford to mess anything up here.

    I'll be sad if the VC-turbo replaces both the VQ AND the VR, which it might. The writing's on the wall. It could be a great engine, but a Nissan without RWD or V6s seems totally neutered.

    Maybe they'll do a VC-turbo V6? The way this company is run, probably not. They don't like to spend much on R&D at all, that's why we still have a 20 year old platform and 10 year old transmissions in the Infiniti sedans and coupes.

    If they did a 6-cylinder VC-Turbo it would probably have to be an inline-6 based off of how I understand it all to works. I think that alone would rule it out. I think it would be easier to get the power/efficiency mix with electrification. It would probably be less R&D costs going the electrified route versus the cost of developing a completely new inline 6.

    I, as well, hope the VC-Turbo turns out to be bullet proof in reliability. Hopefully that is why they took 20 years on it. I hope they learned their lesson from the CVT issues debacle. I am going to be hopeful and believe that they worked out all the kinks. Though I think it would be stupid to not think some kind of issues could crop up in the hands of consumers. It's impossible to find every bug. But they damn sure better have worked out the big ones!

    But I am interested to see how this new platform the Altima is riding on performs. I also wonder if this and the new QX50 are based on the same platform... but I heard somewhere the QX50 is riding on an Infiniti exclusive platform... either way in both cases they have been pretty mum about the platform aspect, so I'm thinking they're most likely related.
