2019 Nissan Quest. With over 25 years of experience, the first Nissan Quest being released in 1992. Nissan has had more than enough time to perfect the luxury minivan formula. The 2015 Quest winning the JD Power award for the “highest ranked minivan in initial quality”. Although small changes each year bring forward a new model Quest, this coming model will be the first full redesign of the Nissan Quest since 2010. This gap makes sure the newly released model will bring with it a large number of improvements for safety, power, fuel economy and style. Though most reports are being treated as rumors by Nissan, a number of facts about the car are generally being accepted.
This article will address these features of the release. Hampered perhaps by unorthodox styling, Quest has been the perennial sales backmarker in a segment itself shrinking rapidly as buyers flock to crossover SUVs. The overall minivan market contracted from 15 models and 1.6-million annual sales in the early 2000s to just six entries and 491,000 total sales in 2019. Demand is down 20 percent through early 2018, with Quest sales falling 18.5 percent. Nonetheless, carmakers see a continuing market for these eminently practical family vehicles. Chrysler introduced its all-new Pacifica for model-year 2018, and for 2019, Honda is launching an all-new Odyssey and Toyota is updating its Sienna.
Nissan’s minimal attention to modernizing 2019 Nissan Quest is highlighted by the van’s lack of state-of-the-art safety systems. Of course, expected systems such as antilock brakes are standard, but the only up-to-the-minute driver assist available is blind-spot warning. It’s exclusive to the Platinum model, where it’s standard. But it doesn’t include lane-maintaining automatic steering, and no Quest is available with advanced features such as autonomous emergency braking that can automatically stop it to mitigate a frontal collision, or adaptive cruise control to maintain a set distance from traffic ahead.
On the upside, all models come with Nissan’s Easy Fill Tire Alert, which beeps the horn and triggers the flashers when you’ve reached proper inflation while filling the ties. All but the L come with a backup camera, and standard on the Platinum is an around-view monitor useful during tight maneuvering. All 2019 Nissan Quest come with keyless entry and pushbutton start. To the S model, the SV adds power sliding side doors, tri-zone automatic climate control, a 5-inch central dashboard screen, satellite radio, a USB port with iPod connectivity, Bluetooth hands-free phone linking with steering-wheel controls, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The SL builds on the SV with standard leather upholstery, a power liftgate, 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, HomeLink Universal Transceiver, an auto-dimming inside mirror with compass, roof rails, automatic on/off headlights. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto aren’t available, so you can’t display smart phone apps, such as GPS mapping, on the dash screen. You have to spring for the 2019 Nissan Quest Platinum grade to get an imbedded navigation system, which is standard and comes with an 8-inch dash display. Also included with the Platinum is a rear DVD entertain system with an 11-inch screen, a Bose audio system with 13 speakers, a power front passenger seat, memory for the driver’s seat and outside mirrors, auto tilt-in-reverse outside mirrors, and second- and third row manual side-window blinds.
The 2019 Nissan Quest, boasting a powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine will generate 260 hp. This engine makes sure the Quest is more than capable of handling the tough requirements of a modern minivan. The new model Nissan Quest will have a continuously variable automatic transmission. The engines mileage of 27 mpg on the open road and 20 mpg in the city save the driver money. Reducing carbon emissions due to engine efficiency and places it as the most fuel-efficient minivan of its class. Nissan has stated that the car has a lowered step for convenience as well as improving the cars overall performance.

And as noted earlier, dealers ought to be offering substantial discounts on remaining inventory.
