The readjustment of the packages is Nissan’s way to help better meet customer demand for popular features and equipment. An optional leather package is also now available for the SV model for the first time.
All four models are powered by a 3.5L DOHC V6 engine with 260-hp and 240 lb-ft of torque and Nissan’s advanced Xtronic CVT transmission. Available features on the 2012 Quest include one-touch power sliding doors, fold-flat second and third row seats, Advanced Climate Control System, and standard permanent hidden storage.
