The 2019 Nissan Altima also offers the brand-new VC-Turbo engine, the first of its kind! With the ability to flex and extend for better power and efficiency, the VC-Turbo offers more torque and a better fuel economy than the 2018 Altima’s 3.5-liter V6, with 267 lb-ft of torque and up to 34 mpg on the highway!
