Ultra-Versatile Workhorse: Nissan's 12-Man Van Hits The Consumer Market

Earlier this month, Nissan showed how one of its NV people movers will help to transform the way that New York taxi passengers commute around the city. More recently, it showed us how its NV series can transform private commutes.

Nissan previewed its NV3500 HD Passenger Van ahead of its commercial launch next year. This big monster can carry up to 12 people or all kinds of equipment, depending upon what you need it for.

Unlike the lesser mini-vans out there, the NV 3500 is an all-out transportation machine, featuring four adjustable benches that can be configured in no less than 324 different ways. Owners can adjust or remove the second and third row benches and remove half or all of the fourth row bench, making room for whatever or whoever they need to haul.

I'd like to just strip all those benches out, throw a mattress in and make a makeshift camper out of this thing.

Power-wise, the NV3500 will offer two options: a 261-hp 4.0-liter V-6 and a 317-hp 5.6-liter V-8. A five-speed automatic serves as the sole gearbox.

In addition to unerring utility, the NV3500 features a few interior conveniences like 120-volt outlets, available lighting for all benches, navigation system and a rear-view camera system.

The NV3500 will start taking up lots of room in your local Nissan dealership beginning next spring.
