The Nissan Maxima is celebrating a 40 year history in the Nissan lineup of cars as a four-door sports car. For this momentous and history-making anniversary year, Nissan has released a special edition trim level that has drivers practically lining up at their local Nissan dealerships. Drivers are anxious to know what this special edition trim package is and what has to offer buyers that is different from the popular platinum trim level?
What is the 2021 Nissan Maxima Special Edition Trim Level?
The 2021 Nissan Maxima Special Edition will offer more features than the luxurious Platinum trim level and has a different body style, too. Because this is the 40th Anniversary Trim Level, the 2021 Nissan Maxima Special edition will have a unique exterior appearance and some exclusive interior features, too.
2021 Nissan Maxima Special Edition Features
The exterior appearance is a nod to the body style that started it all. This model is heavily based on the Platinum trim level, with some fun differences to make it more exclusive and add value. Specifically, the exterior has a special paint job with a black exterior trim with ruby slate gray pearl paint. This color combination is not available on the other trim levels.
The interior also has some upgrades, as expected, from the other trim levels. The leather seats are red semi-aniline with a smoked chrome trim. There are comfort features such as rear heated seats to compliment the front heated seats as well as sleek features like white gauge faces. All of the other features such as the V-6 3.5-Liter 500 horsepower engine and the 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system are all standard across the line-up.
2021 Nissan Maxima Special Edition Pricing
The 2021 Nissan Maxima Special Edition will be priced at $45,270. As the trim levels go up it is standard that the price point increases as well, but the Nissan Maxima Special Edition is priced to be within reach for buyers interested in the Platinum trim level. The Platinum level is priced starting at $43,145 with the 40th Anniversary trim level a little over $2,000 more. Of course there are option packages that can be added that will increase the price.
With the two trim levels so closely priced, many drivers will be excited to upgrade to the 40th Anniversary Edition, especially since it will only be in the lineup for one year. However, the Platinum edition is a more affordable option that has features and luxury to offer drivers as well. The Platinum remains a popular trim level and a smart choice, even in a year with this special edition.
