New Standard Engine in the 2019 Altima
Debuting in the 2019 production year, all Nissan Altima models will come with a standard 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder direct injection engine that earns 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Both of these ratings are significant improvements over the preceding standard engine (179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque).
