KBB Expert Review

Vehicle Details Interior  Dashboard, center console, gear shifter view photo

The 2014 Nissan NV is available for hauling cargo or people, and its interior aesthetics fit the function at hand. In cargo models, the NV seats just a driver and passenger, with the rest of its bay ready for boxes or customization. For those needing the most space, models with the high-roof option expand cargo volume to 323.1 cubic feet, a nearly 90 cubic-foot addition vs. the 234.1 cubic feet in standard-roof models. The NV Passenger models can accommodate up to 12 people with two bucket seats in front followed by a pair of 3-seat benches and a 4-across bench in the back. The rear rows can be removed for owners needing to haul fewer people but more stuff.

Exterior   photo

In profile, the Nissan NV looks like either a rectangle or a high-top sneaker on wheels. The former look comes with the standard roof height and the latter with the high-roof option, only available on NV2500 HD and NV3500 HD cargo models. With the high-roof option, a 6-foot-3 person can stand upright in the cargo area. Both cargo and passenger models of the NV have a sliding door on the passenger side for loading cargo and people, while the back doors have a 243-degree maximum opening range for easier loading.

Notable Standard Equipment

A base version of the NV1500 cargo van includes air conditioning, dozens of cargo mounts, pre-wiring for electrical upfitting, a tilt (but not telescoping) steering wheel, a 2-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with auxiliary input, and electronic traction control. Base passenger models include seating for 12 with a dozen rear heating and cooling vents, eight cup holders/three bottle holders, and four speakers for the audio system. The lowest trims of both passenger and cargo models still use crank windows and manual doorlocks, (for $650 extra, we recommend the Power Basic Package that rectifies this and adds cruise control and keyless entry).

Notable Optional Equipment

Upgrades for the 2014 Nissan NV include a navigation system, Bluetooth wireless communication, front and side-curtain airbags, dual-zone air conditioning (passenger models), a power driver's seat, remote keyless entry, and a rearview monitor. In addition to the high-roof option, cargo models are offered with a rear glass door and side windows. Higher-trim versions include a rear sonar system to aid reversing the big van, while top-line passenger models come with leather-appointed seats that are heated in front. Those who need to tow can add a Class IV tow hitch receiver, which is standard on the highest trim.

Under the Hood

The 2014 Nissan NV comes with a 261-horsepower V6 engine that easily out-powers the V6 offered in the GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express. Optional on other models and standard in top trims is Nissan's 5.6-liter V8 good for 385 horsepower that also out-powers the comparable V8s offered in vans by Ford and GM. Both engines run on regular unleaded gasoline and are connected to 5-speed automatic transmissions. All Nissan NV vans are rear-wheel drive. Maximum towing capacity for the V6 is 7,000 pounds (6,200 for passenger models), while the V8 tops out at 9,500 pounds (8,700 for passenger models). The EPA has yet to supply fuel economy ratings for the NV.

Pricing Notes

The 2014 Nissan NV cargo van has a Manufacturer's Suggest Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $26,665, while passenger versions begin at $33,235. A well-equipped cargo version can reach the high-$30,000 range, while a loaded passenger version can top $40,000. At its base price, the 2014 Nissan NV cargo undercuts the entry prices of the Ford E-Series, GMC Savana, Chevy Express and Ram Promaster, and is several thousand less than a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
