For 2017, the Nissan NV cargo and passenger vans receive an improved 5.6-liter V8 rated at 375 horsepower and 387 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a new 7-speed automatic transmission helping to improve both performance and fuel economy.
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.
