2012 Nissan Quest: Man Van Motivation

Nothing makes you forget about the Quest's CVT quicker than its burly V6 engine. Actually, to be fair, the CVT in the Quest is pretty damn good as those transmission go. It's not too "rubbery" in its power delivery and it helps keep the mileage in check.

But back to the engine. It's fantastic. Sounds good, feels powerful at nearly any speed and has little trouble launching this sizable van into traffic. Dodge may have its own "man van", but this Quest would hold its own in a minivan stoplight showdown. Not sure such events ever happen, but if they did the Quest would be ready.
