Looks like a complete redesign:

Box-like rear quarter looks like a Flex from the side!


Front-end looks like a Suzuki to me


Rear from this veiw not so bad

Rich. Dark. Deeply satisfying.

'97 Mercury Grand Marquis SOLD
'08 Mazda CX-7 Touring - my first turbo! - SOLD 04/2016
'13 BMW 328i

THere weren't any looks at the interior aside from the dash - I'll be curious to see the layout / flexibility / etc.

Came close to buying the Quest back in 2004. That would have been a big mistake as those models had all kinds of problems. Hope the New Quest is better. Don't care much for the boxy looking exterior.

I like the look - far more than the original prototypes I saw. Rumours include flip into the floor seating (3rd row a la MPV rear) and possibly 2nd row stow and go.
Only problem I've heard about this van is the only transmission is the CVT. I hope not, as reliability is a huge issue with the CVT. Nissan may have one of the best CVTs on the market, but according to my friends in the tranny business - RUN from any CVT! Unless you can afford to lease and dump the van at the end of the lease.
With any luck, they'll pull the AWD (another rumour) from the G and M Infiniti and drop that drivetrain with an automatic. Then I might consider one.

I heard you don't repair CVT transmissions, you replace them. Lots of money.

Just replace the rubber bands, no?

That's what I thought, but no, you replace the whole thing.

The new Quest is the JDM Elgrand, but widened for North-America. Only one drivetrain : the 253 hp V-6 with CVT and fwd.

The seatbacks just fold forward (and they are not removeable). It makes a flat-ish load platform, but not nearly as big as the competition. There is a shallow well in the back, but no seat flips in there. Prices are out and follow the new Ody's.

I find it stylish, but with the smaller interior and less cargo flexibility, don't think it's for me. I'm still saving for that Honda Odyssey SiR with the MDX engine and a six-speed manual (one can dream, can he ?).

Yeah - surprised that they don't have the tumble back 3rd row. I'll be curious to see one in person.
