Nissan Altima milestone – 4 million units sold in the U.S. image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced a milestone in the United States after the company has managed to sell 4 million units of the Altima model.

According to the car manufacturer, 4 million vehicles of the Nissan Altima have found new owners in the United States and the 4 millionth car has been delivered to a customer earlier this month. Nissan says that 25 percent of the 2013 Altima buyers are previous owners of a Toyota or Honda and a significant percentage, 11.6, have traded a premium brand for the model in question.

“Since the first Altima rolled off the line at the Nissan Smyrna Vehicle Assembly plant in 1992, the nameplate’s reputation for quality and reliability has grown stronger with each new model. The 2013 Altima lives up to this standard with its five-star NCAP safety rating, and it adds best-in-class fuel economy as well as class-leading style and content”, said the senior VP of sales and marketing, Brian Carolin.

As a quick reminder, the 2013 Nissan Altima is powered by a 2.5 liter QR25 four-cylinder engine, which is developing a total output of 182 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 180 lb-ft, and by a 3.5 liter V6 VQ35DE unit, which is producing 270 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The new generation of the Nissan Altima has a starting price of $21,500 for the base entry-level version, the Altima 3.5 S costs 25,360 USD, the 3.5 SV costs 27,780 USD while for the top of the line 3.5 SL, future customers of the new Altima will have to pay 30,080 USD.
