Nissan Maxima® Tops J.D. Power 2019 APEAL Study

2019 Nissan Maxima

The J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout Study named the Nissan Maxima® as the top-ranked vehicle in the Large Car segment. This is the second year in a row that the car is receiving this recognition.


The J.D. Power 2019 APEAL Study surveys new vehicle lessees and purchasers and has them evaluate their new vehicles across 77 different attributes. The combined results create an overall APEAL score for the vehicles.


The Nissan Maxima® also recently earned the top ranking in the 2019 U.S. Initial Quality Study Large Car segment. Only a total of seven vehicles received both awards in 2019.


The Nissan Maxima® wasn’t the only vehicle from the Nissan lineup to receive recognition in the 2019 APEAL study. The Nissan Altima® tied with two other vehicles for best Midsize Car. In each of their categories, the Nissan Murano®, Armada®, and TITAN® also performed above the non-premium APEAL average.


When looking at the vehicles with the fewest overall problems, the TITAN® tied for seventh in the study. Plus, in the “Large Light Duty Pickup” segment, the truck won the title of the best performer.


See for yourself why the Nissan Maxima® and the other Nissan vehicles performed well in the J.D. Power 2019 APEAL Study when you take the vehicles out for test drives at Pischke Motors Nissan.

2019 Nissan Armada Value Proven by 5-Year Cost to Own Award

Nissan Armada

Earlier this year at the Chicago Auto Show, Kelley Blue Book named the winners of its annual 5-Year Cost to Own Awards. The 2019 Nissan Armada claimed a victory in the Best Full-Size SUV Crossover segment.

Why is this important? This award signifies that over the first five years, the 2019 Nissan Armada is the most affordable full-size SUV to own based on upkeep costs, like maintenance and fuel.

“Spacious and versatile, with near-Infiniti levels of luxury, the 2019 Nissan Armada also boasts the lowest predicted 5-Year Cost to Own in its class,” Kelley Blue Book writes. “The Armada rides on a proven, rugged foundation, which contributes to this SUV’s durability. The Nissan Armada offers comfortable eight-passenger seating, can tow up to 8,500 pounds and has legit off-road chops.”

The 2019 Armada is available here at Pischke Nissan across four trims: SV, SL, Platinum, and Platinum Reserve. No matter which option you choose, your new Armada will take its power from a hearty 5.6-liter V8, towing up to 8,500 pounds and cranking out 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.

KBB was very impressed with the power under the hood but also by the roomy interior and advanced technologies, including safety systems like Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking.

The impressive 2019 Nissan Armada value makes it one of the most popular models in Nissan’s current lineup. Check it out at Pischke Nissan.
