Nissan NV1500 Cargo

Nissan NV1500 Cargo

About Nissan NV1500 Cargo

The 2017 Nissan NV cargo and passenger vans are designed to tackle big projects in the most efficient manner possible. Although lacking the turbodiesel engine offered in the Ford Transit and Ram ProMaster, there is no getting around the pulling power of the NV’s big new V8 engine. Offering a choice of roof heights and a massive interior cargo bay, the NV can be retrofitted to cater to all manner of mobile business needs. As a passenger van, the 2017 Nissan NV van can hold up to 12 people, and while that’s good, it falls three people short of the Ford Transit’s 15-seat capacity. However, the NV’s sturdy body-on-frame platform delivers a 9,400- pound tow rating, significantly more than its Ford and Ram rivals.

"With under 1,000 miles on the odometer the NV is almost everthing promised. Since Nissan doesn't post MPG on commercial vehicles I thought it might be helpful to oters to know that my NV2500 SV with the 4.0 V6 gets between 16- 17 mpg (better than my 5.4 F150 Supercrew) with a mix of local and highway miles. The interior is very nice compared to the E150, although, if you're alergic to plastic you're in trouble. The reason my "Value", "Quality," and "Overall" ratings are 3's and 4's relate to exterior fit and finish. If you are considering buying one of these vans be sure to check the finish on the roof. While watertight, spotwelds are visible on the roof (through the paint), seams in the various sections of roof look a little "forced", and locations where the roof rack brackets attach to the roof (on my van) are down-right sloppy. There are large amounts of what appears to be the sealant "goop" spread throughout the channel containing the roof brackets, and this entire mess is painted over. While functionally the roof does it's job, and because of it's out-of-sight it may not be a big deal to some buyers, but it just seems sloppy for a new vehicle. Hopefully Nissan will address these quality issues. The final issue relates to any new vehicle I suppose, but, be sure that any options that you want on the vehicle are installed at the factory not by the dealer (if possible). In my case, I wanted the rear door glass package and shock-sensors on the van, and was told that they could be added later (they would arrive in "about 2 weeks"). Well, after 3 weeks they are still not available, and it is unclear when they will become available, at what price, and whether they will be as good as the factory installed options (i.e.,whether or not the windows will have defrosters, etc.). All in all I like my NV. Once the options I want are installed it should serve it's purpose for the next 8- 10 years. We'll see..."

"I love my NV3500 SL HD! We bought it right before going to Disneyland with 6 of us and lots of luggage we needed extra room. We are enjoying the extra space when we go on long trips or want to pick up friends and go to dinner or an event. We drive the kids at church to out of town events and they love it too. Decent gas mileage at 16mpg. A little difficult to park, but that is to be expected. My car insurance dropped by $35 when I traded in my Honda Fit. They said it's because it is safer. People ask me about it nearly everytime I go somewhere. It gets a lot of attention! Many people say they wish they could get one. I have recommended it to all my friends with large families. V8 engine has a lot of power! I love it!!!"

Pros: "Comfort, functionality, storage, cargo area"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"So I have driven the NV on a few test drives and would have to say the lack of the engine inside the vehicle like the Chevrolet and Ford makes it by far the most comfortable van I've ever driven. Very comfortable seats and a ton of foot and legroom. I set the cruise control on the 2500 Low Roof V6 and the computer stated 18.6 MPG's which was great as fuel eceonomy is a concern for me. I have driven many Chevrolet and Ford Cargo Vans over the years and the NV is by far a superior product. The walls of the van are straight and with the shelves I saw at the dealer looks like a lot less wasted space. It will be nice to finally have a center console, cup holders and storage for my laptop and the under seat storage drawers are a nice touch. As far as there being too much plastic, I guess there is a lot of it but it seems well put together... I was interested more in the V6 when I heard it had more HP than the Ford V8 engine and still got better fuel economy. All in all a great van, especially for someone in their van ALL day"
