2016 Nissan Quest has a starting price of $26,530

Article by Andrew Christian, on December 15, 2015

Nissan has revealed that it has priced the 2016 Nissan Quest, currently on sale at different Nissan dealers across the U.S. The 2016 Quest has a number of family-friendly features that include the Advanced Climate Control System and the one-touch power sliding doors.

It even has the fold-flat quick release feature for the 2nd and 3rd row seats. It goes without saying that its rear storage is always ready. There are also other enhancements on the 2016 Quest like the roof rails that have been added and are now standard equipment on the SV grade. Fuel economy is also improved and is now 27 mpg highway, 20 mpg city, and combined 23 mpg.

It will also be made available in four different models. 2016 Quest 3.5 S has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $26,530. The Quest 3.5 SV meanwhile comes at $30,490 while the Quest 3.5 SL is at $34,060.

Finally the top-tier is the Quest 3.5 Platinum which has an MSRP of $43,180. Destination and Handling is not included and is estimated at $900.

Powering the 2016 Quest is the 3.5-liter VQ-series DOHC V6 engine capable of delivering 260 horsepower with a maximum torque of 240 lb-ft. Pairing this engine is the advanced and tuned Xtronic transmission resulting in a smooth driving experience. Through its D-step logic, the shift allows for a natural acceleration feeling while not being able to hold the high rpm constant.

Rather, what it does is slowly build the rpm as the speed increases. Completing the superb performance are the 4-wheel independent suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes with the vehicle-speed-sensitive power steering. The exterior manages to combine different sculptural elements with its crafted details and dynamic mass. The front of the 2016 Quest shows the horizontal grill, the headlights, and the bumper smoothly flow towards the boomerang taillights on the rear and the tailgate finisher.

The resulting effect is that it gives it an appearance as if the car itself was carved and sculpted from a solid piece of stone. One of its family-friendly features is that the height of the sliding door step-in is low, making it easy not just for small children to enter the car but even for the older adults. Thus getting to the 2nd or even 3rd rows is simple and it may not even need any assistance. Furthermore, the 2nd row has a standard walk-in device in order to get to the 3rd row that much easier.

For the Quest SL and the Quest Platinum, it comes with the one-touch unlock/open power rear liftgate. The Quest Platinum also has the added bonus of having power return seatbacks on the 3rd row. As expected from any Nissan product, the Quest also follows its Safety Shield Philosophy.

As such, it has various advanced safety systems like the Blind Spot Warning. In addition to the safety systems, there are other technologies available as well. There is for example the Around View Monitor with its Moving Object Detection. Helping the driver is the brand’s own Hard-Drive Navigation System. The 2016 Quest also comes equipped with the DVD entertainment System which can be viewed through the 11-inch WVGA monitor.

The sound can be appreciated through the Bose premium with its 13-speaker audio system. Aside from the DVD Entertainment package and Bose Package, customers can also avail of the Leather Package, Roof Rails, and Dual Opening Glass Moonroof.

Nissan’s operations in North America include a number of services like automotive styling, consumer and corporate financing, engineering, distribution and manufacturing, and sales and marketing. The company is devoted in helping the environment with its Nissan Green Program. The company has in fact been recognized every year since 2010 as the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency.

The 2016 Quest's sophisticated, modern exterior combines fluid sculptural elements with a dynamic mass and crafted details.
