The Nissan NV (Nissan Van) is the first full-size van built by the Japanese automaker for the United States and Canada, and sold by Nissan. Until the introduction of the Nissan NV, Mexico was the only country in North America selling a full-size Nissan Van, as the Nissan Urvan is sold there. But with the introduction of the NV, it will replace the Urvan for Mexico. There was also a small pickup truck sold in Thailand as the "Nissan NV", this was based on the AD Wagon (Y10), a relative of the Nissan Sunny.
The NV uses the same F-Alpha platform as does the Nissan Titan full-size pickup, but due to the need for a flat loading floor it is highly modified and they end up sharing mainly powertrain pieces and some appearance aspects. The NV is also only available with rear-wheel drive, coupled to a five-speed automatic transmission. The NV is not targeted directly at the (mainly fleet) buyers of the Ford E-Series and Chevrolet Express, but rather at private users who have hitherto often been buying more comfortable pickup trucks. The 4.0 litre V6 engine outputs 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque, while the 5.6 litre V8 engine outputs 317 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque. The V8-engined versions are also electronically limited to a top speed of 100 mph (161 km/h).
The NV1500 has a load capacity of 2,590 lb (1,175 kg), similar to the GMC/Chevrolet cargo van using the same "1500" designation, and informally known as a "half-ton". It is available with the 4 litre V6. It is available in S or SV trim, with the SV receiving a chrome grille, rear view mirrors, and bumpers.
The NV2500 HD (HD for "heavy duty") is equipped with the 4 litre V6 engine, with the bigger V8 available as an option. The payload is 3,142 lb (1,425 kg), similar to the GMC/Chevrolet cargo van using the same "2500" designation, and informally known as a "three-quarter-ton". As with the lesser 1500 (and the higher-capacity 3500), it comes in S or better-equipped SV trim levels.
The NV3500 HD is the heaviest weight class offered, and is only available with the large 5.6 litre V8 engine with either a low or a high roof. Payload capacity is 3,925 lb (1,780 kg), similar to the GMC/Chevrolet cargo van using the same "3500" designation, and informally known as a "one-ton".
