2024 Nissan Altima Engine Options & Power

The Nissan Altima specs rely on one of two engines. The first is standard on the Altima S, SV, SR, and SL: the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. This engine uses fuel-saving technologies like a Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System to complement the power with exceptional efficiency (see the MPG ratings above). An Xtronic CVT comes standard and puts the power down smoothly at all times.

The 2024 Nissan Altima drivetrain harnesses this power through the front wheels as standard on all models. However, the Nissan Altima SV, SR, and SL can be equipped with Intelligent AWD to enhance your traction capabilities. The Nissan Altima specs do vary with AWD, namely slightly lowering the output to 182 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque for more stability; the same Xtronic CVT will be equipped on AWD Nissan Altima models.

The 2024 Nissan Altima horsepower output varies the most when you choose the Altima SR VC-Turbo. The 2.0-liter variable compression turbo (VC-Turbo) four-cylinder engine replaces the 2.5-liter engine, bringing the force of up to 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque to your daily drive. This output is achieved when using 93-octane gasoline, but you can still use 87-octane gasoline and enjoy 236 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque.

The other way the Nissan Altima specs can vary is in the SR VC-Turbo trim's transmission. It also has an Xtronic CVT but adds a manual shift mode that can be controlled by the sporty integrated paddle shifters.
