NV 1The Nissan NV lineup is a lineup of cargo and full-size vans produced by Nissan. It is the first Nissan full-size van to be sold outside of Mexico (in Mexico, the Urvan was the main cargo van sold). Built on the same F-Platform as the Nissan Titan, the NV lineup features four different variants, the NV Cargo, NV Passenger, NV Taxi and the NV Compact Cargo. Each of these vehicles gives buyers and drivers different options depending on what they’re looking for. The NV is designed mainly for commercial fleets, even the NV Passenger, though individuals can buy one themselves if they want to. You can learn more about Nissan’s NV line via this helpful link.

We’ll start with the NV Compact Cargo, which comes in two models, the S and SV. Both feature the same 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine, antilock brakes, a fold-down passenger’s seat with a tray table (for those of you always on the go), roof rack mounts, 60/40 split-fold rear seats and 15″ steel wheels. The SV features that plus remote keyless entry, extra D rings in the cargo area (to secure more cargo), and additional 12-volt power outlets. The NV Passenger, used mainly for passenger-oriented fleets, features a 317hp, 5.6L V8 engine, 243-degree rear-opening doors, 234.1 cubic feet of cargo space standard, and a host of other options that you can choose from when building them yourself. The NV Taxi is what it sounds like – a taxicab, and is built for taxi purposes. It features a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that is incredibly fuel efficient (23/26 city/highway MPG), lots of cargo space, and seating for five. The NV Cargo, the last on the list, features much that the NV Passenger does, except for more cargo room and the ability to choose between a standard roof and a high roof, depending on what you’re going to be hauling.

Shipping an NV can be a challenge depending on what type of NV you’re actually shipping. They’re full-size vans, so they’re likely going to be on the same level as a minivan when you ship it – at least the smaller versions. A high-top NV Cargo will likely cost more, like the Sprinter van from Dodge, due to its higher top – height can cause problems for auto shippers, and can cost you an arm and a leg depending on how tall your vehicle is. Taller vehicles that can’t fit on the bottom have to go on top, and if they can’t clear most standard overpasses you’re SOL – your vehicle will need to be shipped on a flatbed or other type of low-built hauler. But for the Taxi, Compact Cargo and Passenger NV models, you’ll likely be just fine with a standard carrier – even if it does cost a bit more.
