When Nissan entered the US auto market in 1957 with its Bluebird Line, most American consumers were caught in the Detroit car dream machine, which constantly produced innovative car models with exciting names. The Japanese auto makers were getting their feet wet in an industry that had deep roots in the American psyche, and most car buyers wanted to keep it that way.

When Nissan changed it name as well as its image in the US, their business started to gain momentum. The old Stanza model was an enigma in the auto market since its performance was less than stellar. Nissan decided to overhaul the Stanza and the result was the 1993 Stanza Altima. Stanza was in small letters on sales stickers and Altima was in big letters.
Nissan added the KA24DE 14, DOHC 4-cylinder 150 horsepower engine in the early Altima models, and that was a strategic move for Nissan. It out performed all the other 4-cylinder engines with a 0 to 60 speed of 9.4 seconds with a 4-speed automatic and 8.4 seconds with the 5-speed manual.
The Altima was offered in four trim models: XE, SE, GXE, and luxury GLE. Each trim offered different interior amenities as well as stiffer suspension, fog lights, side skirts, rear spoilers, and sport seats. Sunroofs were standard on the 1994-1995 models.
The second generation Altima was the pride of Tennessee since the L30 chassis model was only made in the Smyrna, Tennessee factory. The majority of the Altima updates came in 2000 when engine power increase to 155 horsepower and the gearing and final drive ratios were shorten on the manual and automatic transmissions.
In 2002 the third generation Altima was introduced on the L31 chassis. The new engine was the 3.5 litre SE V6 with 240 horsepower and 246 ft-lbs of torque. In 2005 that engine got a boost to 250 horsepower with 249 ft-lbs of torque. Zero to sixty time was down to 5.9 seconds using a Xtronic 5-speed transmission. The SE-R engine model was also introduced. That engine was a 260 horsepower, 251 ft-lbs of torque V6 with a 6-speed transmission. The third generation was a huge success right through the 2006 model year.
The Fourth generation L32 was equipped with the VQ35DE 3.5 litre, V6 with 270 horsepower, and the QR25DE 2.5 litre straight 4-cylinder with 177 horsepower.
