If we can trust latest reports, the new generation of the famous minivan will come completely new for the next year, as 2019 Nissan Quest. This minivan was in production for full 25 years.
It all started in 1992, when the original model came. During all these years, we have seen four generations of it. The last one came in 2010 and it was discontinued last year. Still, the model remained in production for the Japanese market, where it was available for commercial sale.
Still, latest reports this discontinuation is only temporary and that the completely new model will come already by the end of this year. As you may know, the new Altima was presented recently. Considering that these two models were sharing many design characteristics in the past, we are sure that the 2019 Quest will continue in the same way.
2019 Nissan Quest design
So, what to expect from the potentially completely new 2019 Nissan Quest? As we have just mentioned, the new generation the famous sedan came just recently. During all these years, it shared many design characteristics with Altima. We can presume that this practice will continue if the new version of minivan arrives. It should adopt the new architecture, which will provide many benefits in various aspects, including interior spaces, comfort, driving dynamics, efficiency and much more.
When it comes to base design characteristics, the new model should keep similar dimension. Still, it should be lighter, thanks to the use of new lightweight materials. This will also have an effect on the fuel economy and overall efficiency. Also, a better use of space should provide more room for passengers. When it comes to the styling, we expect to see the brand’s newest design language, in a combination with some unique details.
2019 Nissan Quest styling
Speaking of the styling, the new 2019 Nissan Quest should looks far more attractive. Of course, the overall shape shouldn’t be changed a lot. After all, this is a minivan and there isn’t too much space for radical changed. Still, with the new, probably sharper lines, the new model should look sportier and with better aerodynamics. At the front end, we should see the implementation of Nissan’s newest design language, something similar to what we have seen on the new Altima. Still, there will be differences in shapes of headlights, grille etc. Its contour demands a special approach. The rear end will also be full of new details, but it is still early to speculate.
On the inside, we expect to see a completely new layout. The most important will definitely be a new dashboard, which will feature not only better styling, but numerous new technologies as well.
2019 Nissan Quest engines
When it comes to engines, the previous model was relying on a familiar V6 unit. We expect the same from the 2019 Nissan Quest.
It is a 3.5-liter V6, which will for this occasion feature somewhere around 300 horsepower. Of course, significant improvements in terms of efficiency are certain, so better fuel economy is something we expect.
Another possibility is to see a new, highly-efficient 2.0-liter turbo inline-four. It will probably come as an optional choice. Despite much smaller displacement, the new engine is good for about 250 horsepower. It is more than enough power for this minivan, while fuel economy is incomparably better than economy of the V6 unit.
2019 Nissan Quest release date
At the moment, the arrival of new 2019 Nissan Quest is just a speculation. We are still waiting for to official confirmation from Nissan. Still, some reliable sources suggest new model will come pretty soon, maybe even in the late 2018.
