The NV Passenger is one of the most popular vans from Nissan, so it is not strange why Japanese carmaker is turning so much attention to it. Furthermore, it causes better visibility on the market because of its performance and styling. US market is filled with many models from domestic companies, so Nissan must offer special vehicle to break through. That’s why 2017 Nissan NV Passenger is being prepared as refreshed van. There is information about cooperation with General Motors. However, main rivals of the NV Passenger will remain American models.

Refreshment of the 2017 Nissan NV Passenger could be found all around the vehicle. If we look under the hood, there could be few options. Main power supplier is going to be 4.3-l EcoTec V6 drivetrain with output of 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a brand new transmission with 10 speeds. Nevertheless, bigger unit is being prepared with 5.3-l V8. This EcoTec engine offers more power, around 350 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. Rumors are telling about 6.0-l V8 unit paired with 6-speed gearbox, but this option is less likely for 2017 NV Passenger. Van will rather get diesel drivetrain, and that could be 4.5-l V8 Duramax. Less power than its V8 sibling is provided for last model, but torque level is at magnificent level of over 500 hp.
