Overview Information

Nissan has expanded their capable truck platform in to a closed box cargo and passenger van line. Nissan's approach is unique in that the models retain a traditional truck look in the front. This allows for easier maintenance and lower operating costs. The NV3500 HD Passenger Van is a versatile vehicle with four rows of seating for up to 12 passengers. A large curb-side sliding door provides access to the rear seats. Each of the four rows of seats is comprised of one and two passenger sections, so the seating can be configured in any number of ways to mix passengers and their gear. Power is provided by either a 4.0l V6 or 5.6l V8 depending on the model. The NV offers Class-IV towing when equipped with a V8 engine and tow package. Like other full-sized passenger vans, the NV offers the unmatched capability of hauling lots of passengers while also being able to tow.

What Changed:

The NV is a new van line from Nissan based on Nissans full-size truck chassis. The NV is offered with V6 and V8 engines.
