Concepts for Nissan's four-door flagship sedan came from designers in Japan, but assembly occurs in the United States at a Nissan manufacturing plant in Tennessee.

Maxima for 2006 packs class-topping V6 power with two trims that vary in suspension tuning. The sport-oriented 3.5 SE uses a performance-tuned suspension for tight handling control, while the comfort-oriented 3.5 SL has cushy settings for a luxurious ride quality. Maxima's sophisticated 3.5-liter V6, with dual cams and a drive-by-wire throttle, scores at 265 hp.

For 3.5 SE trim, the engine connects to a smooth electronic automatic five-speed transmission with manual shift mode or a six-speed close-ratio manual stick. For elegant 3.5 SL, the V6 employs a four-speed automatic with gated shifter. Maxima's cockpit with standard glass-paneled roof supplies front bucket seats and a three-place rear bench, although the Elite Package on 3.5 SE puts buckets in front and back.
