Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn will be orchestrating the official world premieres of the 2007 Nissan Maxima and the all-new 2007 Nissan Altima at the New York International Auto Show Wednesday, but to whet your appetite, here are pictures of the new Maxima. No tech info yet, but we'll have the complete story tomorrow from our show team. Lots of pictures after the jump - enjoy!

      i dont know what the hell you people are talking about.
      I saw this car in the 2006 ny car show...this car looks pretty Fu*king good. I personally think it looks A LOT better in the flesh then it does in a picture, the mufflers look neater and more aggresive the front bumper looks alot better and neater that grill was changed (thank god RIP: Ugliest grill i ever saw.) and they re did the interior i know the older maximas had a "different" or shall i say "original" interior but that grey thing that luked like a triangle was uglyyyyyyyy....and well this new Altima looking interior is A LOT better. I cant blaim nissan for making the altima better then the maxima the altima is one of their TOP 2 selling cars. (Altima, Murano).

      Then again thats why i have a 2005 Altima...i had 2 maximas and i loved the car so much i have the 99 SE 5speed with added modz and the 2002 3.5SE , they were great fvkin car(s) (untill someone stole my xenons on my 02 maxima) then i considered gettin the new maxima or the altima....so i luked at both the cars and well i drove both the cars....then i FOUND the altima se-r then i fell in love....

      but back to my original point, they re did what was the BIGGEST mistake on that car.....and it looks 50% better ....i would reconsider getting it...
      but then again i want the 07 altima =)

      I like the maxima but they made it diffcult to do repairs. If you wanted to change the foglight or headlight bulbs you would have to consult with the dealer. Everything is so hard to get to and the oweners manual doesn't say much.

      I have owned four Maximas in the past; the best car on the road for the money;unfortunately I cannot tell if this new design is a Maxima or an Altima. Terrible design flax . I want to buy a new Maxima,but I hoped you would change the design enough for me not to jump ship to the AcuraTL. That instrument panel is the worse thing I have ever seen.Looks more like an Altima now than it did before. Sorry; JUMPING SHIP!!!!!!!!!!!

      Still fugly.

      Know what's funny? When someone says "Maxima," the first car to appear in my head is the old early-90s 4DSC model. Yeah, they've been faster and bigger and all that, but that's still my favorite Maxima by a pretty wide margin.

      What did you change?; Its still a dressed up Altima. Scrap the current design and start all over again. Please I dont want to buy an Acura TL, but for the same money you get a highly designed beautiful car.

      Once again Nissan North America proves that they can take a winning, attractive design from Japan aka as the Teanna and butcher it. I'm actually beginning to believe that Goshen has outsourced all NNA top management functions to GM

      Check out the video at this link. It states taht nissan decreased the horse power to 255. What is nissan thinking, I thought this was supposed to be a "sports" sedan. http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/AutoshowArticles/articleId=110004#1

      What has happened to the Maxima. This has gone from one of the coolest looking cars (circa early 1990s) to one of the ugliest 4-door sport car sedans in the market. I would be interested to see sales numbers of the Maxima over the last couple of years as compared to 5+ years ago. I think the 2008 Maxima will need a whole new rear and front end design makeover. I am a little disappointed in the exterior design team at Nissan.

      I like work on the front end. I believe they need to make the front grill smaller (similar to the G35 grill). It is nice to see the upgrade on the interior materials. I hope nissan considers an AWD platform for the 2008 so the car can handle better. I have owed a 1997 maxima and a 2000 maxima. I prefer the these two past models over the current one.

      Whoa! Look at that nose, can you say "Honda Accord"? I guess Nissan can. Still ugly in my book. I can't even look at that back end with its mis-matched angles of deck lid and tail lamps.
      I do like the Worlds skinniest, non-opening moonroof. I guess the idea is to share a useless extra-cost feature with the folks in the back seat.
