While the Quest by Nissan came out of 1998 relatively unchanged from the previous year, 1998 saw a complete redesign from top to bottom with a new style inside and out and a more powerful engine. Subtle updates to trims earmarked the 2000 body year, with new alloy wheels, new front and rear styling and major shuffling of optional packages taking place for 2001. In lieu of the anticipated dissolution of the Quest, 2002 saw minor changes. Following a two-year hiatus, the 2004 Quest was back by popular demand, offering a completely new body style, a more powerful V6 engine and a host of amenities.
2005 saw the addition of satellite radio and a theft deterrent system made standard across all trim levels. The 2006 Quest as well as the 2007 saw the interior refined, including new gauges and controls, and a new center stack design with optional Bluetooth integration. The Quest would coast through 2008 and 2009 unchanged, taking a hiatus once again for 2010. In 2011, Nissan would release a brand new Quest, complete with a new laundry list of standard features that included plenty of addable options. From 2012-2013, the Quest would only receive subtle equipment updates.
