2021 Nissan NV Passenger Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

The new 2021 Nissan NV Passenger Van has been tested neither by NHTSA nor IIHS nor J.D Power yet. Neither is any other older version of the van. Although the 2020 version of the NV passenger van has received a score of 3 out of 5 stars for the ‘Rollover’. The 2017 version got 2 out of 5 stars for the same aspect. No rating by IIHS or J.D Power is available for any versions of the van. Well, that can be counted as a problem that can bring the buyer’s confidence down. 

As mentioned earlier, S, SV, and SL versions are expected to have a cost of about $36,760, $39,210, and $43,510 respectively. Let us check out the prices of these versions in different areas according to the different taxes and duties applicable there.

Furthermore, there is an anti-perforation warranty for 5 years or unlimited miles and 24/7 roadside assistance for 5 years or 60,000 miles; whichever comes earlier.

2021 Nissan NV Passenger Buying Advice

As we studied earlier about all the three trim levels of the new 2021 Nissan NV Passenger Van, we would recommend you to go for the highest version, the SL trim level. It offers a stronger engine and higher power and torque. Furthermore, the SL version offers more and better features than the first two versions. 

Additionally, it offers fog lights, chrome grills, and bumpers, and door handles, and two tow hooks (front), and many more on the exterior. Talking about the interior, it offers beige leather-appointed seats, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and many more. 

The other technical details are also interesting and useful. In a nutshell, we would recommend the highest (SL) trim level if you are thinking of buying a Nissan NV Passenger Van. 

Is buying a used Nissan NV Passenger Van a good idea?

There are a few advantages as well as disadvantages of buying a used Nissan NV Passenger Van. The advantages include:

  • Multiple Seating Arrangements: The seats are designed for all day long road trips. The excellent legroom space is impressive. Also, other seat-related features are comfortable and easy to use. 
  • Easy-to-use cabin controls: The infotainment inside and the other technical controls are easy to operate and management remains handy. Moreover, the services provided by the infotainment are beneficial. 
  • Multiple powertrain options: There are several powertrain options for the NV passenger van, which differ on the basis of their potential and payload capacities. These options are helpful when a person needs something specific. 
  • Warranty: The warranty package Nissan provides with its vehicles are long-lasting and reliable. That is one advantage of getting a Nissan. 
  • Two engine options: There are two engine options available and both of them offer different power and torque. One can choose what is more suitable for them. 
  • Three trim choices: The NV Passenger Van comes up in three different trim levels that offer different features and arrangements. Well, that is again an advantage as one can choose what suits the most out of all three. 

The disadvantages include:

  • No 15-seater options: Unlike Nissan, the rivals provide an option of 15 seating capacity too. Well, that can be counted as a disadvantage. 
  • Lack of fuel efficiency: Nissan NV stands to be less fuel-efficient as compared to the other competitors. That is again a con. 
  • The material inside is cheap: The material used inside in the designing of the interior is cheap and not so good quality. That is one another demerit. 

Nissan NV Passenger Van is one of the primary choices of the buyers in the market. Well, we would recommend the van suits your requirements and pocket, you should go for it. Nissan is one trusted brand of the automobile market and can not be doubted for its selfless service to the world. 

2021 Nissan NV Passenger Engine and Performance

As we mentioned earlier, the base versions of the NV Passenger Van comes up with a 4L DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that generates 261 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque.

With the exterior, Nissan provides the highest curb weight but Ford provides the highest length, width, and height. Well, one should choose wisely considering their prices and requirements. 

2021 Nissan NV Passenger Van vs 2021 GMC Savana Passenger Van

Talking about the engine, Nissan is unbeatable and so is its power and torque. The acceleration by GMC stands to be better than Nissan. Most of the aspects in the interior and exterior of both the vans are almost similar.

2021 GMC Savana Passenger Van

Well, again we would recommend buying the one that suits your requirements and pocket too. 

2021 Nissan NV Passenger Final Verdict

In a nutshell, the engine, power, and torque of Nissan are unmatchable. Talking about acceleration and braking, Nissan performs just fine. The interior and exterior features and dimensions are not so bad either. The technical features inside out are impressive and interesting. 

The safety features are good too. The three demerits that we would point out are the lack of mileage details, lack of ratings and reviews, and no 15-seater option. Other than that, the new 2021 Nissan NV Passenger Van is a great choice. We hope that the company will soon announce the lacking details also.
