2016 NISSAN NV: Enhancements to the 2016 Nissan NV Passenger Van are additional standard equipment and two new exterior colors (Pearl White and Cayenne Red) to the seven available colors total. Offered for both personal and fleet use, and with 12-passenger seating capacity, the 2016 Nissan NV Passenger Van is offered with a 261-horsepower DOHC 24-valve 4.0-liter V-6 or a 317-hp DOHC 32-valve V-8. Both engines include Nissan's continuous valve timing control for improved efficiency and are matched with a refined, heavy-duty five-speed automatic transmission. Nissan confirms that the NV Passenger features SUV-like maneuverability and easy access for serviceability with the truck-like front engine and full hood design. Affordable and durable, the NV is offered in well-equipped trim levels, which includes the NV3500 HD S, the NV3500 HD SV, and V-8 only NV3500 HD SL. With pickup truck-style front end design, the NV Passenger Van wears a chrome grille and bumpers; multi-reflector halogen headlights and available fog lights; chrome outside door handles and outside mirrors, extended heated outside tow mirrors, large windows with privacy glass and chrome-clad styled steel 17-inch wheels. Available technology includes NissanConnect with navigation and mobile apps, rear view monitor, SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth hands-free phone system and telematics pre-wiring. Enhancing the experience of owning an NV Passenger van are through features such as its low step-in height, wide door openings for easy in and out, and rear 50/50-split doors for uncomplicated cargo and luggage loading. While you're at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show (Feb. 13-21), ask the Nissan representative to explain how the NV can also offer 324 seating configurations and a total of six independent rear seats. For the record, the 2016 Nissan NV Passenger is assembled in Canton, Mississippi.
