2019 Nissan Commercial Vans
Nissan’s lineup of commercial vehicles, also known as NVs (Nissan Vans), are tailor-made for businesses with higher needs for cargo space or passenger capacity. Within the lineup, there are three distinct models: The NV200 Compact Cargo, NV Cargo, and NV Passenger. Below is a detailed look at what each NV specializes in and what features are available to accommodate your specific needs.
NV200 Compact Cargo Series
This front-wheel-drive cargo van is made for basic transportation with an emphasis on city driving, as it is easily maneuverable and gets a respectable EPA-estimated 25 combined city/highway mpg. This series offers two trim levels – S and SV. Both come equipped with a 131 horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired to a continuously variable transmission. On the S, you’ll have access to sliding side doors, 40/60-split swing-out rear cargo doors, wide-angle spotter mirrors, a flat-fold passenger seat, Bluetooth connectivity, a two-speaker audio system, and a 5-inch color display that controls audio as well as smartphone functions. Cruise control and rear parking sensors are available for a more convenient driving experience.
The SV adds heated power mirrors, keyless entry, and six cargo area tie-down hooks. Buyers can also choose to include a package that adds navigation and a slightly larger 5.8-inch touchscreen display with voice controls, smartphone app integration, and satellite radio. Optional on both trims are right-side and rear-door windows with privacy glass and wire mesh guards, rear parking sensors, a rear defroster, and an interior rearview mirror.
NV Cargo Series
The next model, the Cargo NV, is larger and more heavy-duty, built with body-on-frame construction. There are three versions available: NV1500 Cargo, NV2500 HD Cargo, and NV3500 HD Cargo. The NV1500 comes in either S or SV trims, both with a 4.0-liter V6 that produces 261 hp and 281 lb.-ft. of torque that is paired to a CVT with rear-wheel drive. The S trim comes with 50/50 split rear cargo doors, a trip computer with maintenance intervals, Bluetooth connectivity, water-repellent seating surfaces, pre-wiring for electrical and telematics upfitting, keyless entry, a 7-inch touch screen display with satellite radio, a two-speaker sound system, 36 integrated reinforced cargo-mounting points for custom shelving, plus eleven for a bulkhead partition and ten for an interior ladder rack installation. There are also six floor-mounted D-rings in the cargo area. The SV adds hardboard interior cargo panels, a rear cargo floor protector, a four-speaker audio system, and a rear sonar camera; a navigation system with voice recognition can be added as an option.
The NV 2500 HD comes in three trims: S, SV, and SL. Both the S and SV can be paired with either the same V6 from the 1500 NV or an upgraded 5.6-liter V8 boasting 375 hp and 387 lb.-ft. of torque. The SL, on the other hand, only comes equipped with the V6. There is also the option to add a High Roof configuration to gain cargo space: it offers 323 cubic feet (the standard roof offers 234 cu. ft.) along with eight roof rack-mounting points. Otherwise, the standard features are the same as the ones available with each respective 1500 trim, except for the SV and SL trims, which get a multi-functional center console with file and laptop storage, along with a built-in clipboard holder. Last, the 3500 comes in the same three trim levels, all with the robust V8 engine as well as what was included with each respective trim from the 2500.
NV Passenger Series
This version is focused solely on passenger transport, as it provides seating for up to twelve passengers. As with the Cargo series, the Passenger series comes in the same S, SV, and SL trims. The S and SV have the V6 engine while the SL gets the V8. Equipment for the S includes three rows of configurable bench seats along with keyless entry, a 7-inch display, Bluetooth capability, and a four-speaker stereo system. The SV adds a security system, rear parking sensors, an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, and an upgraded six-speaker stereo system. With the SL, you’ll get all of this in addition to fog lights, front parking sensors, leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control for the front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, navigation, and satellite radio. On the outside, drivers are provided with heated and extendable mirrors for help with towing, as well as a Class IV receiver hitch, front tow hooks, pre-wiring for a seven-pin connector, and a brake controller.
