the quest for accurate engine specs completed

In response to our confusion over engine specs for the new 2011 Nissan Quest, Nissan’s product communication team wrote in to let us know that

At our media preview we received the new torque and hp figures during the middle of the event of 240 and 260 respectively but for some reason the rpm figures [in promotional materials] weren’t updated.

Thanks to Nissan’s prompt response, we can now officially report that the confusion is over. Engine power specs for the 2011 Nissan Quest are as follows

Horsepower : 260 hp @ 6000rpm

Torque (lb-ft) : 240 lb-ft @ 4400rpm

    What a great looking dash, too bad the minivan looks so awkward on the outside.

    This overlooks the fact that the numbers were also impossible in the preliminary figures.

    Just tried to correct the numbers in the database, and got a duplicate specs error--because these are the same exact specs as the VQ in the Murano.

    Seems like they went through a lot of effort before figuring out that they're using the same engine as in the Murano.

    It looks gorgeous on the inside.
