If we can rely on the latest reports, this large van will carry on without bigger changes for the next year. As a part of the generation introduced in 2012, the 2020 Nissan NV Passenger will come with familiar design characteristics, which make this model widely popular, even seven years after the launch. The rigid body-on-frame platform, powerful engines, and amazing ride quality are some of the things that help this van to stand out from the ground. Therefore, we expect that the upcoming will retain its good sales numbers, despite the fact that some rivals are about to come with updates. In any case, expect to see 2020 Nissan NV Passenger sometime late in the year.
2020 Nissan NV Passenger Redesign
When it comes to base design characteristics, the 2020 Nissan NV Passenger will definitely remain the same. It will continue to ride on a solid body-on-frame platform, which is a real rarity these days. Such design definitely provides a lot of benefits, especially when it comes to utility. Even fully loaded, this van acts amazing. In terms of the styling, the most notable thing about this van is the famous protuberant hood, which makes this van look more like a truck. The styling is rather conventional and you won’t find any fancy detail on it. As we already mentioned, the next year shouldn’t bring any important change. The 2020 Nissan NV Passenger is about to continue in the same way and the best we could see is a couple of new standard features and color options.
One thing about the 2020 Nissan NV Passenger is sure, it features a spacious and comfortable cabin. In terms of the interior quality, the NV Passengers looks very utilitarian. You definitely won’t find any fancy details on it, but rather durable materials and simplistic design solutions. Still, that doesn’t mean that the interior quality is bad. For example, sound insulation is excellent. Also, there is a long list of tech goodies in the offer, which includes features like 7-inch color display, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a two-speaker stereo with a CD player. In higher trims, you can also get a touchscreen, NissanConnect mobile apps, voice recognition, satellite radio, etc.
On the other side, a big drawback is a fact that there is no high-roof option in the offer. Moreover, you also can’t get a long wheelbase version, which can accommodate 15 passengers. Other than that, the 2020 Nissan NV Passenger is just fine.
When it comes to trim levels, there are three of them in the offer. The base S is pretty simple and sticks to essentials only. Some of the standard features are things like air conditioning, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control, a tilt-only steering wheel, a rearview camera, etc. In terms of tech goodies, things like 7-inch display, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a four-speaker stereo are standard.
The next one is SV. It comes with a couple of interesting upgrades, including things like rear parking sensors, an eight-way power driver’s seat, audio controls on the steering wheel and an upgraded six-speaker stereo, a 12V power outlet, etc.
Finally, there is the top-range, SL trim level. Foglights, front parking sensors, leather upholstery for all rows, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control are some of the notable standard features. Also, you can count on a 5.8-inch touchscreen, navigation, satellite radio, etc..
2020 Nissan NV Passenger Engines
This aspect of the 2020 Nissan NV Passenger definitely won’t change. There will be two familiar gasoline engines in the offer. Base models will come equipped with a familiar 4.0-liter V6, which is good for about 260 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired with a 5-speed automatic gearbox and ensures a pretty convenient ride. If you want something with even more power, there is a well-known 5.6-liter V8 in the offer as well.
This engine is good for about 375 horsepower and 387 pound-feet of torque and comes in a pair with a much more refined 7-speed automatic transmission. The ride quality is absolutely amazing. However, you have to pay the price for such amazing performances. In this case, it is fuel economy, which is some of the worst in the class.
2020 Nissan NV Passenger Release Date and Price
Considering that no bigger changes are expected for the next year, the 2020 Nissan NV Passenger should come in a typical time of a year. In this case, that would mean sometime in late 2019, most likely in December. When it comes to the price, we don’t expect bigger changes. Base models should go around 35.000 dollars, while top-range versions could easily go up to 43.000 dollars. When it comes to the competition, there is a couple of tough rivals. Some of them are models like Ford Transit Passenger Van and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
