NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Nissan, a relative newcomer to the commercial vehicle market in the U.S., announces a new five-year/100,000-mile basic limited warranty on its light commercial vehicles.

The powertain limited warranty has also been extended from five years/60,000 miles to five years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Nissan’s previous basic limited warranty coverage was three years/36,000 miles.

The models covered by this new bumper-to-bumper warranty include the 2014 Nissan NV Cargo Van, NV Passenger Van and NV200 Compact Cargo.

The improved warranty retroactively covers all 2014 Nissan commercial vehicles.

"We’re in the commercial-vehicle game for the long haul and this warranty will further help our customers to have greater confidence in our vehicles," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president of Nissan sales & marketing and operations, in a statement on Thursday.

The NV200 Compact Cargo is the base for the 2015 Chevrolet City Express. In comparison, the City Express offers a basic three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, according to GM.

The 2014 Ram ProMaster offers a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, according to Chrysler.

The 2015 Ford Transit Cargo Van offers a basic three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty, according to Ford.

Nissan said the 2014 Nissan NV200 Taxi is covered under a separate limited warranty with a different level of coverage.

Edmunds says: Nissan wants to be a serious force in the light commercial vehicle market and this is one way to telegraph that message to consumers.
