Nissan has recently announced that the company has decided to reduce the prices of the midrange models of the 2013 Quest so as to give way for the price adjustments that they are trying to implement on some of the vehicles that they are selling on the market at present.
Based on the information revealed by Nissan, the Quest models that was affected by the price cut were the 2013 Nissan Quest 3.5 SV and the Quest 3.5 SL. Due to the price cut, the cost of buying a Quest 3.5 SV was reduced by about $1,310 while that of the Quest 3.5 SL was adjusted by $980.
Given the price cut, the 2013 Nissan Quest 3.5 SV will now be sold at a starting price of $30,565 including the shipping charge of $825 which is $1,310 lower than the starting cost of the 2012 version which was priced at $31,875 including the same charges for shipping. The 2013 Nissan Quest SL on the other hand will now have the starting price of $34,345 including the shipping cost and this is $980 lower than the 2012 model’s price of $35,325.
Now that Nissan has already reduced the prices the Quest’s midrange models, a lot of car experts are now convinced that the company’s minivan lineup will now have a greater chance of competing with its competitors particularly the segment leaders such as the Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Sienna.
Aside from that, these experts view Nissan’s move to reduce the prices of the midrange models as a good strategy in attracting more buyers to purchase the Quest 3.5 SV and 3.5 SL since both of these have only obtained a few significant changes. The two models were basically introduced into the market with no major upgrades except for the availability of the optional DVD entertainment system on both trims at an additional cost of about $2,100.
But despite of the price cut that was implemented on the 3.5 SV and the 3.5 SL, the base model of the 2013 Nissan Quest still remains as the cheapest model in the lineup with the price of $26,415 including the shipping. In addition to this, the base model is also a cheaper option against the 2013 Toyota Sienna which is priced at $27,245 and the 2013 Chrysler Town and Country which is sold at $30,990.
The top-of-the-line Quest 3.5 LE is still the most expensive trim on the lineup given that this model has recently obtained a price increase of $290.
