Nissan brought its first production commercial vehicle to the US market in 2011. It is available with a choice of 4.0-liter V6 and 5.6-liter V8 engines. The standard transmisiion is a five-speed automatic. From the seats forward the NV looks, acts, and feels like a pickup. Behind the seats the NV is a practical van with a range of storage choices. Both cargo and 12-passenger vans are offered. ESC is standard. Option packages included various window configurations, side and curtain air bags, navigation system, Bluetooth, and rear-view monitor. For 2017, the V8 got more horsepower paired with a new seven-speed automatic.
