The Features And Specifications Of The Nissan NV3500 HD
Comfort for passengers
As much as this is a business vehicle, it will play a family car’s role very well because it can easily fit 12 family members. Each seat comes with its own conveniently placed safety belt and ample legroom for everyone. The rows have enough reading lights, airbags, and air vents. Cup holders are sliding out from under each seat—the extra air vents placed at floor level to keep you hydrated and warm, respectively.
The vehicle is equipped with two 120 volts power outlets capable of charging devices such as laptops. The engine bay has been moved to the front, creating more legroom for the driver and co-driver. To top it all, the seats come with adjustable headrests and heating mechanisms to add to a tripper’s comfort, whether that’s a drive around the block or a trip across the country.
Additional comforts for the driver include a touch screen display that connects to a smartphone, thus enabling hands-free usage while driving. Users can check out the weather, traffic, and even access their favorite phone apps by tapping on the display. There is a camera at the back to assist the driver in reversing the Nissan NV3500 HD. Other features include big practical mirrors and power steering that makes this colossal vehicle easy to maneuver.
Any Nissan NV passenger NV3500 HD for sale comes with a towing capacity of 9,400 pounds and a payload totaling 3,850 pounds. The rear doors open completely wide, and if you get rid of the passenger seats, you are left with a little over 300-cubic feet of cargo space.
The seats’ flexibility provides an opportunity to adapt this van to fit different environments, from a funeral home to a livestock farm. Don’t be surprised when travel enthusiasts convert the vehicle into a mobile home complete with a full bed, sink, and eating area. That’s how cargo friendly the car is, and the sky’s the limit when it comes to modifications.
A standard model comes with a 7-speed auto-manual featuring a rear-wheel drive train. So, for a more powerful model, purchasers need to opt for the one that comes with a V8 engine and produces 375 horsepower on regular gas.
The brake calipers are bigger, which significantly improves braking efficiency in sticky situations that involves a heavy load.
If comfort means airplane seats, then that’s a check. Another check is more legroom, enough headspace, and overall functionality of the vehicle. The doors are practical, the vents, sockets all work optimally, but the most important aspect of comfort is noise. The sound system produces more clarity than other rivals in this category, and the road noise is lower. The drive feels smooth, especially on bumpy surfaces. The only main disadvantage of a Nissan NV Passenger NV3500 HD for sale is the poor fuel economy. For instance, the V8 engine averages about 14 MPG, which is lower than rival models but again, this is purely a commercial van/truck.
