If you plan on regularly hauling a van full of people and their luggage, we'd skip the V6 and go straight for the V8. This engine is optional for the S and SV trims and standard for the SL. Nissan doesn't offer nearly as much customization possibility as other automakers do for their full-size vans, but the upside is that it's easy to pick one — just select the trim level that has the type of features you want.

Part of the first NV generation introduced for 2012
The 2019 Nissan NV Passenger van, with its heavy-duty body-on-frame construction and available V8 power, is a bit of a throwback when it comes to full-size vans. Yet it offers a strong mix of rugged practicality, good road manners and modern technology to satisfy a wide variety of needs.
On the downside, the NV lacks a high-roof option, which makes it possible to stand up in the van. Also, there's no extended-wheelbase version capable of carrying up to 15 passengers. For either of these qualities, you'll need to look at a rival van such as the Ford Transit or the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. But the NV's core attributes are still quite solid, and it should absolutely be considered if you're in the market for a large van.
2019 Nissan NV Passenger models
The 2019 Nissan NV Passenger is a full-size van with seating for up to 12 passengers. It is offered in three trim levels — S, SV and SL — with a choice of two engines. The S and the SV use a 4.0-liter V6 (261 horsepower, 281 lb-ft of torque) paired with a five-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. Standard on the SL is a 5.6-liter V8 (375 hp, 387 lb-ft) that is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The base S trim is outfitted with three rows of configurable bench seats, front and rear air conditioning, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control, a tilt-only steering wheel, a rearview camera, a 7-inch display, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a four-speaker stereo with a CD player.
The SV adds some chrome exterior accents, a security system, rear parking sensors, an eight-way power driver's seat, a center console, additional 12-volt power outlets, overhead lighting for the passenger rows, audio controls on the steering wheel, and an upgraded six-speaker stereo.
The top-of-the-line SL trim is only available with the V8 engine. It adds foglights, front parking sensors, leather upholstery for all rows, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control for the front seats, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Oddly, the SL reverts to a smaller 5.8-inch touchscreen, but it does come with a navigation system, NissanConnect mobile apps and satellite radio. The outside mirrors are heated and extendable for towing, and there's the addition of a Class IV receiver hitch, front tow hooks, pre-wiring for a seven-pin connector, and a brake controller.
Just one option is available, the Navigation package, which upgrades the SV with the SL's navigation system, a 5.8-inch display, NissanConnect and satellite radio.
Edmunds has only limited experience with the Nissan NV. The following is our first take on what's significant about it and what you can expect.
There's no confusing the Nissan NV Passenger for anything other than a giant van. The V6 engine produces satisfying enough performance, even with cargo on board. The V8 is even better.
The ride quality on the NV Passenger is decent whether the van is unloaded or full, and noise levels within the cabin are surprisingly low at freeway speeds. The seats were designed with daylong road trips in mind, and there's excellent legroom up front thanks to the forward engine placement.
The Nissan NV's interior is highly functional, with little nooks and crannies to store stuff, including a handy pullout drawer under the driver's seat. The gauges and controls are straightforward and easy to use. Just keep in mind that it's a utilitarian cabin with minimal luxury touches to be found.
There's 28.9 cubic feet of cargo room behind the NV Passenger's fourth row. But if you need to haul a bunch of cargo, you can remove seats to open up 218.9 cubic feet of space. In addition to the sliding side door, access to the cargo area is aided by rear doors that swing open 243 degrees.
Standard equipment for the NV Cargo includes a rearview camera, a 7-inch color display, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a two-speaker stereo with a CD player. And the available Navigation package adds a nav system, a 5.8-inch touchscreen, NissanConnect mobile apps, voice recognition and satellite radio.

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you
that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make
higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand,
can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a
new car every three years or so.
