Nissan Passenger Van Debuts To Fleet Magazines

Posted on May 14, 2014

TORRANCE, Calif. — Tim Gallagher, Nissan’s North American communications manager, and Dan Passe, senior manager for product communications, came by the Bobit Business Media offices Wednesday to hold an informal press meeting on Nissan’s latest passenger and cargo vans. Of note to the limo industry is the NV Passenger 3500 HD Standard Roof Model Van.

Nissan has recently gone through a redesign on the van platform for its newest models, and the company has seen steady growth in passenger van sales during the past three years. The NV Passenger van features a rugged, body-on-frame contstruction with a car-like ride and handling. It can carry up to 12 people including chauffeur, and has a number of safety features.

It has more standard airbags than other vehicle in its class, with curtain airbags for all four rows of seats and an outboard occupant head protection in the event of a rollover. Each seat has a seat belt and the bumper on the vehicle is positioned at regular car height, to help better protect passengers in the event of an accident.

The bench seats can be easily rearranged and removed and the cabin has a high powered HVAC for passenger comfort during transit. The roomy cabin provides good headroom and foot space for the passengers, and the large center console beside the driver is great for storage and reducing clutter around the vehicle. The engine is a 5.6-liter V8 with 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft torque, which is powerful enough to manuever the vehicle up steep inclines.

Look for more coverage on the NV 3500 in LCT Magazine, including a review, photo gallery, and video ride along.
