2016 Nissan NV Passenger Van Adds Advanced Technology Features as Standard Equipment on SL Grade Models
When it comes to carrying passengers, lots of them, the 12-passenger 2016 Nissan NV Passenger van provides innovation by the dozen. Offered for both personal and fleet use, the NV Passenger features eight standard air bags – including roof-mounted, curtain side-impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensor for outboard occupant head protection and standard head restraints and integrated seat belts for all rear seating positions. It also offers 324 seating configurations and a total of six independent rear seats.
Enhancements to the NV Passenger van for 2016 include:
- Previous SL Technology Package content now standard on SL grade – includes NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 5.8-inch color display, Enhanced Voice Recognition for navigation and audio, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant, Streaming audio via Bluetooth®, SiriusXM® satellite radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately) and RearView Monitor
- Two exterior colors: Pearl White (Premium) and Cayenne Red (seven available colors total)
All 2016 Nissan NV Passenger vans come with America’s Best Commercial Van Warranty 5 years/100,000 Miles Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty*, with basic limited warranty coverage of 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The powertrain limited warranty is 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
A Combination of Comfort, Convenience, Safety and Durability
The Nissan NV Passenger Van is built on a foundation of a rugged heavy-duty, fully boxed ladder frame, also used for the Nissan NV Cargo Van. During development, the NV Passenger underwent more than 7,000 quality and durability tests, including corrosion tests simulating 13 years of life in just over 100 days and 700,000 door openings and closings.
The Nissan NV Passenger’s styling is professional and rugged outside and completely passenger-focused inside – offering a balance between functionality and comfort that sets the benchmark in class.
The NV Passenger’s modern style combines a Nissan truck twin strut signature grille, pickup truck-style front end design, large windows with privacy glass and steel 17-inch wheels. Other exterior features include multi-reflector halogen headlights and available fog lights, chrome grille and bumpers, chrome outside door handles and outside mirrors, extended heated outside tow mirrors and chrome-clad styled steel wheels.
Seven exterior colors are offered: new Cayenne Red and Pearl White (Premium), along with Java Metallic, Brilliant Silver, Super Black, Glacier White and Arctic Blue Metallic.
The heart of the NV Passenger design is its outstanding seating flexibility – featuring 12-person seating capacity with up to 324 possible seat configurations. The large comfortable 1st row seats include integrated inboard and outboard wear patches for durability, while the split 2nd and 3rd row seats are completely removable and repositionable.
The 50/50-split 4th row seat then can be partially or completely removed as needed. Leather-appointed seats are available for all four rows, along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 8-way power driver’s seat with manual lumbar support and front driver and passenger’s heated seats.
Mobile office support is provided by an available large center console with storage for laptop computer and charger, business cards, hanging files, pens and paper and available 120V outlet. The space is enhanced by the design’s elimination of engine intrusion into the cabin area – along with the fold-down front passenger seat that provides a flat work surface.
The NV Passenger’s utility is also enhanced through features such as a low step-in height, easy ingress and egress without intrusive seat belts (integrated into rear seats), wide door openings and rear 50/50-split doors for easy cargo and luggage loading.
Comfort and convenience items include standard rear HVAC system with dual rotating vents for each row, available personal map lamps for 2nd, 3rd and 4th rows, standard rear cargo lamp behind 4th row, an available 3rd row 12V outlet, available 120V outlet in cargo area and numerous cupholders and bottle holders throughout the spacious cabin.
Available technology includes NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, RearView Monitor, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System and telematics pre-wiring.
Standard NV Passenger safety features include integrated seat belts for all rear seating positions, head restraints for all seating positions and standard curtain side-impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensor for all four rows of outboard occupant head protection.
The 2016 Nissan NV Passenger Van is offered in a choice of two engines, a 261-horsepower DOHC 24-valve 4.0-liter V6 with 281 lb-ft of torque or a 317-horsepower DOHC 32-valve V8 with 385 lb-ft of torque. Both engines include Nissan’s Continuous Valve Timing Control (C-VTC) for improved efficiency and are matched with a refined, heavy-duty 5-speed automatic transmission.
The NV Passenger also features an independent double wishbone front suspension with twin-tube coil-over shocks, solid rear axle with rigid leaf springs, heavy-duty disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and engine-speed-sensitive power steering. Also standard is a 28-gallon fuel tank.
In addition, the Nissan NV Passenger features SUV-like maneuverability and easy access for serviceability due to its pickup truck-like front engine/full hood design.
Designed to be affordable and to stand up to the abuse that full-size passenger vans face everyday, the 2016 Nissan NV Passenger is offered in three well-equipped models, the NV3500 HD S, the NV3500 HD SV, and NV3500 HD SL (V8 engine only).
In addition to the long list of standard equipment found on the NV3500 S grade, the NV3500 SV adds chrome clad styled steel wheels; chrome grille, bumpers, door handles and mirrors; power door locks and windows, cruise control, center console with siding table and lockable storage; two additional 12-volt outlets; 8-way power driver’s seat with manual lumbar support; Remote Keyless Entry; carpeted floor covering front and rear passenger areas; six rear personal overhead lamps; two additional speakers (six total); rear parking sensor and more.
The top-of-the-line NV3500 SL adds fog lights; leather-wrapped steering wheel; leather-appointed seats for all rows; front Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control; HVAC microfilter; front parking sensor (in addition to the rear parking sensor); and the full content of the previous SL Technology Package.
Also offered are two option packages. The Power Basic Package includes power windows, power door locks with central locking, auto door lock function, Remote Keyless Entry and cruise control with steering wheel-mounted controls (S models only).
The SV Technology Package feature NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 5.8-inch color touch-screen display, Enhanced Voice Recognition for navigation and audio, USB connection for iPod® and other compatible devices, Streaming audio via Bluetooth®, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, SiriusXM® Traffic, SiriusXM® Travel Link™ (fuel prices, weather, movie listings, stock info) (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately) and RearView Monitor.
