The Nissan Altima will arrive on American roads this fall, but interested buyers will be able to get put in an order for one on June 15. Reserving one early will come with advantages, too, including the the availability of the limited Edition One and a choice of high-tech goodies.
The Edition One uses the range-topping Platinum trim as the starting point. In addition, the special sedan features a set of 19-inch wheels with a dark gray finish, a trunk lip spoiler, puddle lights, and illuminated door sill plates. The limited model also comes with three years of the Nissan Concierge service that lets owners do things like make dinner reservations or buy tickets to events. Customers reserving one can also select among an extra gift, including a Amazon Echo Show with Amazon Prime Membership; Bose Soundlink Revolve+ Bluetooth speaker and Amazon Echo Dot with Amazon Prime; or a series 3 Apple Watch.
The Platinum model comes with lots of standard equipment by itself, including the latest version of Nissan's Propilot Assist driving aids that can maintain the vehicle in a single lane. Rear automatic braking is an additional option that can detect stationary objects when backing up and automatically stop the sedan. Inside, there's leather upholstery, a Bose stereo, and moonroof.

About the 2019 Nissan Altima
The all-new Altima brings excitement back to the mid-size sedan segment with expressive styling, an uplifting interior, two new powerplants, the first available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive in a Nissan sedan in the U.S. and advanced Nissan Intelligent Mobility features, including available ProPILOT Assist2. It builds on 25 years and more than 5.6 million Altima sales to date.
The new Altima follows the 2018 LEAF in embodying the vision of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, making vehicles more desirable by re-defining how they are driven, powered and integrated into society. A key component is ProPILOT Assist2, a single-lane "hands-on" driving assistance technology that is standard on the 2019 Altima SV, SL, Platinum and Edition ONE grades. Also new for 2019 is available Rear Automatic Braking3, which helps warn the driver of detected stationary objects when backing up, and if necessary can apply the brakes to help avoid a collision.
The addition of Rear Automatic Braking to Nissan Safety Shield creates Safety Shield 360, which provides front, side and rear safety monitoring and intervention technologies – including available Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and High Beam Assist (HBA).
Two new engines are introduced on the 2019 Altima. Replacing the previous-generation Altima's 3.5-liter V6 engine is the company's world's first production-ready variable compression turbo inline 4-cylinder. The engine delivers V6 attitude with 4-cylinder fuel economy4. Standard on all 2019 Altima grade levels is a new 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder direct injection engine. The new Altima also offers available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive for the first time ever on an Altima. The AWD system is available on all trim levels equipped with the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine.
The all-new Altima's expressive design is lower, longer and wider than the previous generation with a highly balanced, aggressive stance that includes available 19-inch wheels and tires. Inside, the all-new premium interior features a wide "gliding wing" instrument panel – which accentuates the exterior's low cowl and hood, helping create an open, airy environment. Key interior comfort and convenience features range from seats with added bolstering for improved holding and support, to standard NissanConnectSM featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and an 8-inch multi-touch color display.
The 2019 Altima is offered in a range of trim levels – S, SR, SV, SL and Platinum. All five come equipped with the standard 2.5-liter engine and are available with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. In addition, the Altima SR and Platinum grades are available with the advanced 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine (front-wheel drive only).
The exclusive Altima Edition ONE, based on the Platinum VC-Turbo, includes unique 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler, illuminated kickplates, external ground lighting, unique badging and floor mats and three years of complimentary Edition ONE Nissan Concierge.
