NEW YORK – Reflecting the importance of the Altima to the Nissan brand, the company is making its largest investment ever in a new model powertrain development – introducing for the first time, two completely new engines for one model change.

The new 2.0-liter VC-Turbo, which recently launched as a world’s first technology in the all-new INFINITI QX50 crossover, replaces the previous-generation Altima’s 3.5-liter V6, offering similar performance figures while providing 4-cylinder fuel economy. It will be available on the Altima SR and Platinum front-wheel drive grades.

The new 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder, which is standard on all 2019 Altima front-wheel drive and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive grade levels, utilizes more than 80% new or redesigned parts. It offers 9 additional horsepower and a fuel economy improvement versus the previous-generation 2.5-liter design.

Importantly, both engines’ short profile designs and low engine mountings contribute to the all-new Altima’s low and wide exterior design, including the lower hood and cowl – as well as reduced levels of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).
