2019 Nissan Altima has a starting MSRP of $23,750 in the United States

Nissan is commencing sales of the 2019 Nissan Altima on October 3, 2018 in the United States. As expected, the Japanese carmaker has already divulged the details and specs of the Altima before its eventual launch. Equally important for customers is how much they should take out from their pockets just to be able to own a new Altima. Good thing is that Nissan has just disclosed the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) for the new 2019 Altima.

The new 2019 Nissan Altima can be availed for at least $23,750. This is applicable to the S trim of the Altima with a 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder direct injection engine and a front-wheel drive system. This engine is standard on all grade levels of the Altima and delivers up to 188 hp of output and up to 180 lb.-ft. of torque – more than what the previous mill found in the midsize sedan. Moreover, the new 2.5-liter engine isn't just more refined and quieter, it also returns better fuel economy figures.

Nissan is also offering the Altima S in all-wheel drive configuration, bringing the MSRP up to $25,100, plus $895 in destination and handling.

The 2018 Nissan Altima has officially been launched in United States dealerships. Some of the latest features it embraces include Nissan’s advanced Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) as well as Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (I-FCW) - both are now standard across the range.

Contents and availability of option packages have also been revised. These are now the 2.5 SR Special Edition, 2.5 SV Technology and 2.5 SL Technology Packages.

2016 Nissan Altima to go on sale November 11 starting at $22,500

Pricing for the redesigned 2016 Nissan Altima has been made available to the public ahead of the vehicle’s release on November 11. According to official information from Nissan, the 2016 edition of its best-selling vehicle in the North American market will hit Nissan dealers across the United States with a starting price of $22,500 USD.

Having been extensively redesigned as part of the company’s mid-cycle product makeover practice, there are plenty of great stuff to look forward to from the 2016 Nissan Altima. For instance, it now has a new exterior design.

The exterior’s design elements have all been conceptualized according to Nissan’s “Energetic Flow” design language. Being introduced in the 2015 Murano and in the 2016 Maxima, it means that the new Altima will feature a look similar to these two entries in Subaru’s lineup.

Nissan begins production of 2016 Altima at Smyrna, Tennessee plant

Nissan fans who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2016 Altima are in for some good news. The company has recently begun production of the new vehicle in its Smyrna, Tennessee plant, and it’s expected to be ready for delivery to dealerships across the United States next month.

The Altima has proven itself to be a major source of revenue for the Japanese car maker. Thus, according to Nissan North America’s senior vice president John Martin, the teams that designed and built the Altima have been meticulous in the new concept for the 2016 Altima.

The new model has been scheduled for a mid-cycle refresh, and Martin said that it is Nissan’s unspoken mission to continually improve on the best-selling Altima with each model year.

Nissan’s new design language is now incorporated into the carmaker’s top-selling vehicle in the United States, the MY2016 Nissan Altima. Borrowing heavily from the MY2016 Nissan Maxima that was derived from the Nissan Sport Sedan Concept and some from the MY2015 Nissan Murano that was inspired by the Nissan Resonance Concept, the MY2016 Altima inherits key elements of the exterior and interior styling themes, like the "Energetic Flow" exterior styling theme and "Gliding Wing" interior layout. These contributed to the Altima’s all-fresh appearance inside and out.

Major changes in the interior styling of the new Altima include the revised C-stack, which is home for the available 5.0-inch and 7.0-inch displays for the NissanConnectSM with Mobile Apps as well as for the optional NissanConnect Navigation with Mobile Apps.

Nissan also reshaped the vehicle’s standard Zero Gravity front seats, and granted its woven cloth seating and door panel materials with a more open weave pattern. Aside from the refined steering wheel, the MY2016 Altima features twin cup-holders on the center console that could now contain mugs with handles.

The top-selling model in the midsize segment for the month of March 2013 was the Nissan Altima, with 37,763 units sold. Coming in at second place is the Toyota Camry with 37,663 units sold. However, Toyota doesn’t need to fret much as the year-to-date total of the Camry is at 100,830, much higher than the Altima’s and Accord’s total of about 80,000.

Ranking third is the Honda Accord with 36,504 units sold. Fourth place went to the Ford Fusion (30,284 sold), which fell down one spot in the rankings compared to February sales. No. 5 is the Chevrolet Malibu with 18,539 units sold while at No. 6, there’s the Hyundai Sonata with 18,031 units sold. The Chrysler 200 reported sales last month of 16,593 units sold, compared to only having sold 11,446 in February.

At No. 8, there’s the Kia Optima (with 14,366 units sold) and at No. 9, there’s the Dodge Avenger (with 12,439 units sold). It’s believed that the Optima’s sales will climb quickly later this year when the refreshed model arrives in showrooms. The three models at the bottom are the Volkswagen Passat (9521), Mazda6 (6102), and Subaru Legacy (4400). The Mazda model got a substantial increase in sales last March after having sold just 2702 units last February.

Nissan has presented a racer with an Altima body that was built just for the V8 Supercar series. U.S. and Australia are the two countries that have shown incredible enthusiasm for the V-8 engine even as this engine can be seen all over the world and has been produced by nearly all major automakers.

The V-8 is quite rare in Europe and Asia and is typically used only in luxury cars and heavy trucks but it’s common in affordable vehicles in Australia and the U.S. In the U.S., they have NASCAR while Australia has the V8 Supercar series. Nissan’s latest entry in the V8 Supercar series shows a lot of potential. The car was subjected to a shakedown run at Calder Park Raceway near Melbourne.

The car was driven by V8 Supercar team owner and driver Todd Kelly, who has yet to fully recover from a shoulder operation but was able to drive the car for a few laps in Calder. However, this model isn’t likely to cross over to NASCAR.

The New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2013 Nissan Altima a five-star rating (from a maximum of five). A four-star rating was given to the last-generation 2012 Nissan Altima on the same test. The interior of the 2013 Altima has driver and front-passenger seat-mounted side-impact air bags, and roof-mounted side-impact curtain air bags.

It also features blind spot monitoring and lane departure warning systems. Of course, the 2013 Nissan Altima isn’t the only midsize sedan to be given five stars on the NCAP test. Other models that earned the rating are the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, 2013 Hyundai Sonata, 2013 Kia Optima, 2013 Toyota Camry, and 2013 Volkswagen Passat.

Vehicles that earned four stars are the 2013 Chrysler 200, and 2013 Dodge Avenger. The NHTSA has not rated the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion and 2013 Honda Accord so far.

After the U.S.’s Curiosity was able to successfully land on Mars, Nissan wanted to take advantage of the hype and has released an infograph to indicate the price of driving to Mars. Nissan has started to use the 2013 Altima to achieve a best-in-class 38-mpg highway. Of course, no one can really drive 352 million miles (the distance to Mars) in this lifetime.

Nissan said that the 2013 Altima is the best among other vehicles by a huge margin. Nissan said that it will cost $33,764,211 to drive to Mars, based on $3.645 per gallon. Even if 35-mpg to 38-mpg might not seem like a huge difference, take note that this is distributed over more than 352 million miles.

The gap is emphasized by Nissan. For instance, the 2012 Toyota Camry, which delivers 35-mpg, would cost $36,658,286 to drive to Mars. Nissan also wants to emphasize Altima’s fuel efficiency and its NASA-inspired “zero-gravity” front seats.

Nissan Motor Co. has launched the national marketing program for the 2013 Altima. It will be attached to a new tag line -- "Innovation that Excites” instead of the "Innovation for All" tag line, which was used by Nissan North America for almost two years. Nissan Europe had started to use the “Innovation that Excites” tag line since April when it launched the sporty Juke crossover in the UK.

Vinay Shahani, director for Nissan marketing communications and media, said that Nissan is making the change so that all of its global ad campaigns would be on the same page. Shahani said that the company wants its global communications to be more consistent and so its brand campaigns in the future for its various markets will be similar.

He didn’t give details on what vehicles will share campaigns. Notably, Nissan Europe had released a TV commercial of the Juke being built in midair by skydivers, underwater and in motion as it participates in a race in going to a dirt-bike ramp. The launch of the U.S. model has been criticized but regardless, Nissan North America will still have its tag line changed.

Nissan was able to quickly increase the production volume of the redesigned 2013 Altima and so dealers will begin to sell the vehicle before its official launch date of June 26. Deliveries to dealers nationwide started last week. Al Castignetti, Nissan Division vice president for sales, said that Nissan has requested its 1,100 retailers to have one new Altima as a demo model.

However, dealers can immediately sell any more Altimas they get. The Altima has been vital to widening Nissan’s market share in the U.S. As a result, the company is more eager to maintain its momentum during the model changeover.

In 2011, the Altima had higher sales than the Honda Accord in the U.S. for the first time to be the second-ranked mid-sized car in the market trailing Toyota Camry, with sales of 268,981 units.

Nissan Motor Co. will start selling its redesigned fifth-generation Altima sedan on June 26, 2012. The 2013 Nissan Altima features better seats and more glamorous trim. It is also blessed with more horsepower yet better fuel economy as well as new safety features, a pinch more horsepower. The Altima is currently considered as having the best fuel economy in the mid-sized sedan segment.

The secret for Nissan’s designs lies on the fact that the Japanese carmaker also looks at the models produced by its non-US rivals, like Honda and Toyota.  For the 2013 Altima, Nissan looked at the Hyundai Sonata, which has been widely praised by the auto industry this year. Nissan’s Altima team even took a moment to take a better look at the awesome newcomer.

With the Sonata as a benchmark, the team worked harder to achieve better design cues, fuel economy, interior comfort and exterior trim, resulting in an Altima that is better than before.

Despite increasing competition in its segment, Nissan North America commenced production of the high-volume Altima last week with the expectation that it will further raise its volume level.  The vehicle, which has been revamped for the 2013 model year, will be available for sale on June 26. However, rivals Honda Accord, Chevrolet Malibu and Ford Fusion also have been redesigned for the same model year.

Moreover, the Toyota Camry and Volkswagen Passat were revamped for this year. These are two other key mid-sized vehicle segment rivals. In addition, a question arose whether Nissan could build sufficient number of Altima units to challenge the market-leading Camry.

For Nissan, this is particularly significant, as the Altima has been increasing in sales for the past year. The automaker hopes to make the most of these gains. The Altima has been tagged as the also-ran among family sedans for a major part of its 20-year life.

Nissan North America has commenced the production for the revamped 2013 Altima sedan, which the automaker hopes, will rival the family-sedan domination of the Toyota Camry. Nissan Americas Vice Chairman Bill Krueger disclosed that they did not put all of the investment into the vehicle and give it all of its excellent features "with an expectation to be No. 2."

The first 2013 model has rolled off the Smyrna assembly line in Tennessee. Krueger added that ultimately, the customer will be voting with their purchase whether or not the company sells more than anyone. For most of its 20-year lifespan, the Altima has lagged as the also-ran among family sedans.

However, in the months after the March earthquake in Japan last year, the vehicle jumped into the No. 2 spot within the segment. It surpassed the Honda Accord and trailing closely at the Camry. With both rivals currently seeking to recoup lost ground, Nissan intends to capitalize on the gains.

Nissan will begin its advertising campaign for the redesigned Altima sedan three months before it could be widely offered. Jon Brancheau, Nissan's vice president of marketing, said that the initial ad campaign is set to start this week. By late June, the 2013 Altima will start to arrive in showrooms but it will be widely available only in July.

Brancheau wouldn’t provide details on the marketing expenses for this volume-leading vehicle. However, he said that this is a major part of Nissan's budget for 2012. The early TV commercials will be displaying the Altima just briefly.

These ads have Robert Downey Jr. saying these lines: "Five all-new models over the next 15 months.” At the same time, five vehicles hidden under silky sheets are being driven through a city.

At last, the waiting is over! The all-new 2013 Nissan Altima was finally revealed today showing a new look as well as several improvements. The first thing you’ll notice at the 2013 Altima is the front end styling featuring projector-type headlights and a new grille. Moreover, the A-pillar angle is now slightly more sloped, while the new body design is capped by large taillights (with LED taillights standard on SL models) that flow from the rear into the bodysides.

The interior of the 2013 Altima will definitely rival upscale luxury vehicles, at least according to Nissan, in ambience and sophistication.

The most interesting feature of the interior are the seats as Nissan says that these are inspired by NASA’s “Zero-Gravity” seats. For those who don’t know, NASA says that the least fatiguing seats are those that come closest to a "neutral posture" – a relaxed position that the human body takes in a weightless environment.

Nissan is hoping that the redesigned Sentra that will come out in two years will sell well in the compact sedan segment and that its sales will be comparable to that of the Altima.

Honda and Toyota sell nearly as many compact cars as their mid-size sedans but Nissan has not had the same luck. Al Castignetti, Nissan Division vice president of sales, said that the Sentra misses "the heart of the market right now."

He explained that those who are considering an Altima and who eventually decide to buy a compact car don't choose a Sentra since the styling is too polarizing.
