The Nissan Quest is a family-style minivan. It took a year off in 2010, and is back with an extensive redesign for 2011, including a slightly more conservative profile compared to the previous generation. This new model represents the start of the Quest's fourth generation. It shares a platform with the Japanese-market Nissan Elgrand, and its engine with several other Nissan models.

The 2011 Nissan Quest is available in four trim levels. The base trim features 16-inch steel wheels, some power accessories, manual air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, and a 4-speaker sound system. The Quest SV trim steps up to tri-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, 6-speaker sound system, alloy wheels, fog lights, and other bonuses. The Quest SL trim provides 18-inch wheels and leather upholstery as standard, and adds a power liftgate, roof rails, heated front seats, and more power features to the accessories. Even more power features are added to the top-drawer Quest LE trim, along with xenon headlights, rear-seat entertainment system, navigation system, and a 13-speaker Bose sound system. On the top two trim levels, a two-panel sunroof is optional. Maximum cargo space is 108.4 cubic feet, according to Nissan.

The standard power plant in the new 2011 Nissan Quest is a 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine, which works with front-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission. This combination delivers 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Nissan Quest include anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, stability control, traction control, active head restraints, front side air bags, and side curtain air bags. A rearview camera is standard on the upper trims, and a blind-spot warning system is standard on the LE trim. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Quest highest-possible \"Good\" ratings across the board in front-, side-, and rear-impact crash tests.

Starting MSRP for the 2011 Nissan Quest is $27,750; fully loaded, it can exceed $40,000.
