Nissan Announces New NV Passenger Van with Enhanced Usability, Safety and Comfort; Set to Debut in Spring 2012– NV3500 HD Joins Innovative Nissan NV Commercial Vans in Providing Dependability, Durability and Style, Along With a Low Cost of Ownership –
Just one year after its entry into the commercial vehicle business in North America wîth the §egmènt-changing Nissan NV commercial van series, Nissan is expanding the lineup wîth the debut in spring 2012 of a new NV3500 HD Passenger Van. Offered for both personal and fleet use, the 4-row/12-passenger Nissan NV3500 HD features the most flexible seating configurations in the full-size passenger van §egmènt, along wîth one of the highest standard horsepower and torque ratings.
'Just as we did prior to shaking up the commercial van category wîth the highly innovative Nissan NV, we first did our homework in the full-size van §egmènt by studying the real-world needs, wants and desires of both families and fleet operators,' said Joe Castelli, vice president, Commercial Vehicles and Fleet, Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA). 'As a result, we're delivering a vehicle that offers everything owners are lòòking for – enhanced usability, driver and passenger comfort, flexible storage, dependability, durability and an affordable cost of ownership. Then we've topped it all off wîth signature Nissan style, performance and value.'
The 2012 Nissan NV3500 HD Passenger Van will be offered in a choice of two engines, a 261-horsepower DOHC 24-valve 4.0-liter V6 wîth 281 lb-ft of torque or a 317-horsepower DOHC 32-valve V8 wîth 385 lb-ft of torque. Both engines include Nissan's Continuous Valve Timing Control (C-VTC) for improved efficiency and are matched wîth a refined, heavy-duty 5-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The Nissan NV3500 HD Passenger Van is built on a foundation of a rugged fully boxed ladder frame wîth independent front strut/solid rear axle wîth rigid leaf springs suspension, heavy-duty disc brakes wîth Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and engine-speed-sensitive power §teering. Also standard is a 28-gallon fuel tank.
In addition, the Nissan NV3500 features SÚV-like maneuverability and easy access for serviceability due to its pickup truck-like front engine/full hood design.
'First and foremost, as we've learned through more than 75 years of Nissan global commercial vehicle experience, you have to start wîth a durable, dependable workhorse platform and highest quality components,' explained Castelli. 'These vehicles go through more use and abuse in a year than regular passenger vehicles experience in a lifetime, so that was a priority. Then we turned our team of innovators loose on the usability and comfort aspects.'
As a result, the Nissan NV3500 HD Passenger Van more than delivers on every key area of customer input, including:
• Safety – integrated seat belts for all rear seating positions; standard headrests for all seating positions; and §egmènt-exclusive standard side curtain air bags for all four rows of passengers •Seating flexibility – 12-person seating capacity wîth up to 324 possible seat configurations; large 1st row seats to optimize comfort, completely removable and repositionable 2nd and 3rd row seats; 50/50-split 4th row seat than can be partially or completely removed as needed
•Mobile office support – large center console wîth storage for laptop computer and charger, business cards, hanging files, pens and paper; available 120V outlets; seat wear patch; fold-down front passenger seat wîth underseat storage; no engine intrusion into the cabin area
•Enhanced utility – low step-in height, easy ingress and egress without intrusive seat belts (integrated into rear seats); wide door openings; rear 50/50-split French doors wîth 243? rear opening
•Comfort and convenience – rear HVAC system, available personal lamps for 2nd, 3rd and 4th rows; rear cargo lamp behind 4th row; available 3rd row 12V outlet; numerous cupholders and bottle holders
•Technology – available navigation system, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, telematics pre-wiring, XM® Satellite Radio (XM® subscription required, sold separately); and integrated rear view camera
•Modern style – Nissan truck twin strut signature grille; pickup truck style front end design; large windows wîth privacy glass; styled-steel 17-inch wheels
'The Nissan NV3500 HD's styling is professional and rugged outside, and completely passenger-focused inside,' said Castelli. 'While you want to feel assured that there is room for all your luggage, for example, you don't want to be treated like a piece of cargo inside. We've found a great balance between functionality and comfort that we believe sets the new benchmark in class.'

Designed to be affordable and to stand up to the abuse that full-size passenger vans face everyday, the new Nissan NV3500 HD is available in a range of models and option packages to fit a range of owner needs and uses.
