Of the updated Japanese large minivans, the Quest is the third to market. Available features include power sliding doors and liftgate.

As expected, the Quest seats seven with second- and third-row seats that fold to a flat loading floor.

The Quest's high snub nose reminds us more than a little of the Toyota Sienna's box-like silhouette. We're sure it's just a coincidence.

The 2011 Quest is built on the same D-platform that is the foundation of the current Nissan Maxima and Altima sedans and Murano crossover SUV, but with a longer 118.1-inch wheelbase (200.8-inches overall).

Passengers interact with the cabin tech package via a 4.3-inch color audio display on SV and SL models or an 8-inch touch-screen display for LE models with navigation. The navigation system is hard-drive-based with 9.3GB dedicated to music storage, XM NavTraffic Real-Time Traffic Information, XM NavWeather, and Zagat Survey Restaurant Guide.

Don't expect any surprises under the hood; Nissan's stalwart VQ-series 3.5-liter DOHC V-6 make yet another appearance here, sending 253 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque through a CVT to the front wheels.

The Quest looks a bit like a brick on wheels, but Nissan claims that the Quest S model's 0.32 Cd makes it more aerodynamic than it appears.

Blind Spot Warning (BSW) system and RearView Monitor technology are both available on the new Quest.
