2018 Nissan NV Cargo and Passenger Gain More Tech At A Higher Cost

Nissan has announced pricing details on its 2018 NV Cargo and Passenger vans which now are enhanced with more tech features.

The differences are small but are expected to make everyday life with the 2018 Nissan NV easier: new models now come with features like a standard rearview monitor and a 5.0-inch color display, a Bluetooth hands-free system, streaming audio via Bluetooth, a hands-free text messaging assistant, and a USB connection port for iPods and other compatible devices.

Powertrain options still include the entry-level 261hp 4.0-liter V6 paired to a five-speed automatic transmission and the 375hp 5.6-liter V8 mated to a heavy-duty seven-speed automatic unit. All 2018 NV Cargo and Passenger vans are covered by a bumper-to-bumper warranty of 5 years/100,000 miles.

The Cargo version is offered in three models -NV1500, NV2500 HD and NV3500 HD- and in two roof configurations -standard and high-roof. Prices start at $30,025 (inc. destination and handling fee), which makes it $1,100 more expensive than last year’s model.

As for the 2018 NV3500 HD Passenger van, it still offers four rows of seating for up to 12 passengers, making ideal for both personal and fleet use. There are plenty of seating configurations for every need as well as roof-mounted supplemental airbags in case of a side impact. Pricing for the Passenger model starts at $35,050 for the V6-powered model.

    Nissan is a lot more capable of making a nicer design.

      You have to wonder exactly who at Nissan is making decisions in bringing these vans – and I mean the passenger ones – to the market. The Quest just isn’t going to cut it in the face of competition from Honda (and, oh God, do I hate the Odyssey…), or Dodge or, much less, the Pacifica.

      This NV passenger is the sort of thing that they use to transport inmates from at the Guatemalan insane asylum where they grow the Merciless Pepper of Quetzalacatenango. There’s NO CHANCE IN HELL that a family will buy one of these.

      So, again, I ask: who the hell is allowing this monstrosity to come to market?

        The proportions are just awful and vulgar.

        If you’ve ever seen the inside of one of these or, better, driven one, you’ll likely change your mind. These are really nice. They are literally the only van with headrests, > 8 passenger capacity and decent towing capability. Something like 85% of the passenger models are sold to families (the big problem with them is actually the gas mileage, where the Ford beats the crap out of them).

    They should have just bought the rights from Ford to build and re-badge the Econoline.
