Nissan NV powerful U.S. vans for 2011
Nissan is going to start offering their new range of 2011 Nissan NV work vans in North America. There are three body styles, but more intriguingly, there are V6 and V8 engine choices.
The new NV commercial range includes three variants – the NV1500, the NV2500 HD and the NV3500 HD. The last two models will also be available with a ‘High Roof’ body which allows for more cargo space and allows a person to stand up inside the van while loading. The NV1500 comes only in the ‘Standard Roof’ body.
The cargo area of the NV will be 3060 mm long and 1790 mm wide. The ‘Standard Roof’ variant will have 1400 mm of cargo height while the ‘High Roof’ model will have 1940 mm of cargo height.
All models will be made available with a choice of either a 4.0-litre V6 or a 5.6-litre V8 engines, derived from the Nissan 4×4 range, and mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. Features include a durable floor, wide-opening doors, various rack options and all the safety features expected of a modern vehicle.
The 2011 Nissan NV will be built in the United States. It is unknown if these vans will be offered in the UAE and other GCC countries, where the cheap-and-cheerful Nissan Urvan is already offered.
