The Nissan NV full-size vans soldier on for the 2020 model year in the United States with no apparent updates other than their higher prices.
For some reason that Nissan did not communicate, the 2020 NV Cargo and 2020 NV Passenger have higher starting MSRPs than 2019 models.
The base 2020 Nissan NV 1500 Cargo Standard Roof S V6 is priced from $29,890, adding $550 over the previous model year. As for the entry-level 2020 NV 2500 Cargo High Roof S V6, it’s $450 more expensive than its 2019 predecessor.
The same goes for the 2020 NV Passenger, which now starts at $36,110 in the 3500 S base configuration whereas the equivalent 2019 model was $450 cheaper. All prices exclude a $1,395 destination and handling fee.
A closer look at the lineup reveals a simplification of the trim levels for the NV Cargo, with Nissan deleting the previously-available NV 2500 SL V6 and NV 2500 S V8 trim levels from the lineup, for both Standard Roof and High Roof models.
The NV Passenger continues to offer a four-row, 12-passenger seating capacity with up to 324 possible seat configurations. The split second- and third-row seats are completely removable and reposition-able. The 50/50-split 4th row seat can be partially or completely removed as needed.
As before, the NV Cargo and NV Passenger are powered by a standard 4.0-liter V6 gasoline engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission and rated at 261 HP and 281 lb-ft (381 Nm) of torque. A 5.6-liter Endurance V8 power plant hooked to a heavy-duty 7-speed automatic transmission is optional, offering best-in-class horsepower and torque levels of 375 HP and 387 lb-ft (525 Nm) of torque.
The 2020 NV Cargo and NV Passenger vans are available now at select Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealers across the United States.
