The 2014 Nissan Quest has entered dealerships and Nissan has announced pricing for the new model year. Prices remain unchanged from 2013, but the Quest has seen some updates that improve its value overall. Starting MSRP is $25,990, plus destination.
The 2014 Quest continues the bold styling introduced last year, inlcuding the signature full surround glass that gives it an open interior and excellent field of view. One-touch power sliding doors, quick release fold-flat second and third row seating, an Advanced Climate Control System and an always-available rear storage well are staples in this minivan from Nissan.
For 2014, two new exterior colors have been added: Titanium and Gun Metallic. The updated Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition makes sense for families on the go while the fold-flat second and third rows are still unrivaled in the segment. Tire Pressure Monitoring and Easy Fill Tire Alert are standard on the Quest.
Nissan has kept the proven and reliable 3.5-liter VQ-series direct overhead cam (DOHC) V6, with its 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, as the standard engine in all trim levels of the 2014 Quest. An advanced Xtronic CVT transmission gives a smooth drive and fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
The 2014 Nissan Quest has four trim levels, from the base S to the SV, SL and LE. The 3.5 S starts at $25,990 while the 3.5 SV upgrades options and begins at $29,740. The well-connected 3.5 SL starts at $33,529 while the luxurious 3.5 LE is tagged at $42,640. Destination and handling not included.
The Quest is a stylish, popular minivan with trim levels and model options that will appease most families looking for a people mover that isn't the norm. It is a top-seller in its segment because of its performance on several fronts, from driveability to value.
