The Nissan Quest is a minivan first introduced by Nissan in 1992. Currently in its fourth generation, the first two generations (1992-2002 model years) were a joint venture with Ford, and the Quest was originally marketed as a rebranded Mercury Villager. The Nissan Quest was brought in to compete with GM and Chrysler vans at the time, and after the Villager’s discontinuation in 2002 the Quest continued on as Nissan’s main minivan option. Starting with the third-generation Quest, the minivan began to be built on the Nissan FF-L alongside the Nissan Altima, Maxima and Murano. Read more about the Nissan Quest here.
The 2014 Nissan Quest (the most current as of this writing) comes in four different trim levels, ranging in price from $26,220 to $42,870. All four models feature a 260 horsepower 3.5L V6 engine that gets 19 city/25 highway miles per gallon. The base model, known as the S, is the cheapest, and features a tire pressure monitoring system, fold-down second-and-third row seats, Nissan’s intelligent key system with push-start, and a permanent rear-storage well. The SV is the second trim level and features 16″ aluminum-alloy wheels, one-touch power-sliding doors, a rearview monitoring system and a Bluetooth hands-free phone system. The SL is the third-highest trim level and features all the SV does including leather-appointed seats, a one-touch powered lift gate, 18″ aluminum-alloy wheels and heated front seats. The highest trim level, the LE, features an around-view monitor, Nissan’s hard-drive navigation system, a premium entertainment system and a blind spot warning system.
Shipping a Nissan Quest is a bit more difficult than a standard car, but not much – it’ll be on the same lines as a small SUV despite the larger size. This is mainly due to the weight – the Nissan Quest clocks in at over 4,300 pounds, depending on features, so shipping one is going to be more expensive than a standard car that only weight 1,500 pounds or so. That doesn’t mean it’s going to cost you an arm and a leg, of course; it just means be prepared for higher prices, and don’t lie about what you’re shipping to try and get a better price. At the end of the day it’s going to cost what it’s going to cost, but luckily the Nissan Quest will fit on any standard open auto transport carrier. And open is all you really need; even though the higher trim levels cost a bit more, the Quest loses value quickly, like most minivans, especially if you have kids you’re hauling around (and why else would you buy a minivan?).
