Nissan Quest

After a series of teaser images unveiled this past summer, Nissan has finally brought out the new generation Quest at the Los Angels Auto Show. It will be offered in four well-equipped models: S, SV, SL and LE, with prices starting from $27,750.

The new generation Quest gets a new exterior design with a bold bumper, horizontal grille, and headlights. Take a look at the back of the vehicle and you’ll see rear “boomerang” taillights and tailgate finisher. Other features include full surround privacy glass, black sash molding, and chrome trim accents. The wheels spin round in a standard 16-inch or 18-inch size. The Quest exterior design is also one of the most wind-efficient, with a 0.32 Cd for the Quest S model.

The interior gets a theater-style interior layout with raised 2nd and 3rd rows. The front seating features a special “trilaminar” structure, which uses three types of cushions to distribute body pressure more evenly than traditional padding.

Under the hood there is a 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine with 253 HP and 236 lb-ft of torque. The engine incorporates a twin Nissan Variable Induction Control System (NICS), micro finished camshaft and crankshaft surfaces, DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coated valve lifters, resin intake manifold, forged crankshaft, digital knock control system, high capacity muffler, and lightweight aluminum block and cylinder heads.

Press release after the jump.

Ahead of its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this year, Nissan has finally given fans of the next-generation Quest minivan what they’ve all been waiting for: a full-set of photos of the vehicle in all its uncovered glory.

Surely, the past teaser photos – or photo, since it was only a single image that was released before - of the minivan certainly didn’t do a whole lot to appease the clamoring from all those die-hard soccer moms who have been waiting with baited breath for the Quest to be revealed.

Now, the speculation ceases, at least as far as what the minivan looks like. The technical details? Well, that’s a different matter altogether and Nissan is opting on keeping the figures close to its vest for the time being despite rumors going around that the minivan is supposedly going to come with a 3.7 liter V6 engine. Purely speculation, but it’s something that would be nice to hold on to until it makes its debut later this year – and subsequent production release sometime in the spring of 2011.
