2020 Nissan Quest Van Preview; Specs, Redesign, Release Date
The Quest lineup is Nissan’s attempt to gain the market share in the minivan segment. Since the Quest lineup is in need of a redesign, we expect the 2020 Nissan Quest to get some kind of redesign. We expect it to get a finer design both for exterior and interior as well as a more powerful engine. After all, Nissan is known to be good at redesigning their vehicles. If you want to know how the 2020 Quest will look like, its performance, safety, release date, and price, just read on. We have it all here.
Before we start, we need to tell you that what you read here may or may not be true. As its name suggests, the 2020 Nissan Quest is a model for 2020. Since the gap between now and 2020 is long, there can be changes that we don’t include, no changes that we do include or maybe even the Quest lineup is stopped being produced altogether.
2020 Nissan Quest Redesign
Yes, a redesign is likely for the 2020 Nissan Quest. While the redesign is incoming, we expect the main idea of the Quest lineup will be carried out to the 2020 model. Both the exterior and the interior of the 2020 Quest will be redesigned.
What kind of exterior redesign that the 2020 Quest will get? Again, the main idea of the Quest lineup will not be replaced. Rather, it will be even more emphasized than in the previous models. For instance, the exterior of the 2020 Quest will be made of materials of better quality such as aluminum, hard steel, and even carbon fiber. We will likely to see some new, refreshing details as well. From what we know, these redesigns for the 2020 Quest make the new Quest to be closer to Nissan’s ideal for the Quest: a luxury minivan.
The 2020 Quest will get finer yet sharper edges. Of course, these finer and sharper edges will improve the appearance of the upcoming Quest. Not only that, these refined edges will also improve the aerodynamics of the minivan as well. It will improve the performance surely, albeit we don’t know to what extent.
Since the 2019 Quest is going to have prominent front fascia, so will the 2020 Quest. At the front end, the front fascia of the 2020 Quest will get a wider grille and larger headlights. Under the grille, you can see a redesigned bumper. Under the front lights, there are larger, circular fog lamps, which will be available on all Quest trim levels. At the rear end, you will see that the 2020 Nissan Quest sports longer taillights. All of these redesigns make the new Quest to get an even better look than its predecessors.
Lastly, since the 2019 Quest is available in various color options, we expect the same for the 2020 Quest. The 2020 Quest will have various color options, hopefully, it comes with more color options than the 2019 Quest. If all these are proven to be true, the 2020 Quest will look prominent, classy, and of course, attractive.
What about the interior? What kind of redesign will the Quest get for its interior? We expect there will be changes inside. The cabin should come with soft details, seats should become more comfortable, the infotainment system should get updated and the climate vents should be bigger than what its predecessors have.
The 2020 Quest’s dashboard should resemble the 2019 Quest’s, at least in terms of design. The 2019’s dashboard is designed to look and function great. It is a great dashboard aesthetically and functionally. The switches are sufficient, and reachable, making the minivan easy to manage. We expect this to be carried out to the 2020 model.
As for features, we expect features such as cruise control, traction control, blind-spot monitors, parking sensors, rear-view camera, overtaking assist, Bluetooth, USB ports, as well as an improved audio system to be included in the new Quest.
The 2019 Quest has a lot of trim levels, from basic trim (which already comes with a lot of features) to most equipped ones. With these options, consumers will be able to pick the features they want from the Quest. The 2020 Quest should have these, too. After all, more options mean that the Quest can attract more people.
2020 Nissan Quest Engine Performance
The engine is a very important part of a vehicle. It is also one of the things that consumers consider when they are buying a vehicle. As such, vehicle manufacturers will likely to use engines that make their vehicle capable and can compete with its competitions.
For the 2020 Nissan Quest, there is a good chance that Nissan will offer a few engine options. Currently, we don’t know what kind of engines that Nissan will use for the 2020 Quest. We expect one of the engine options will be a 3.5L V6 DOHC engine that is capable of delivering up to 253 horsepower with up to 236 lb-ft of torque. This engine is likely to be paired with a 2-speed CVT gearbox. The all-wheel-drive system will be available.
The safety features should be improved. This is expected since Quest is a minivan, which is a segment that is widely used by families. Without good safety features, the new Quest will not be able to compete with its rivals and keep its current buyers, let alone attract new ones.
So, what kinds of safety features will the 2020 Nissan Quest came with? We expect the new Quest to come with safety features such as High Definition assist camera, improved front lighting fixtures, auto dimming features and so on.
Release Date and Price
At the moment, there is no official statement from Nissan about the release date of 2020 Nissan Quest Van. Although we don’t know exactly when the 2020 Quest will be released, we expect the new Quest to enter the market either in late 2019 or in early 2020.
There is no official statement about the price, either. However, we can use the current model to base our expectation on. Since even the base trim has a lot of features in it, we expect the starting price not to be less than $29,500. On the other hand, the most equipped ones will be more than $50,000.
