2020 Nissan NV Passenger vs 2020 Ford Transit

2020 Nissan NV Passenger vs 2020 Ford Transit

When you are looking for a comfortable and versatile large passenger van, there are limited options available on the market today. However, Nissan has answered the demand by creating one of the most innovative vans available. The Nissan NV Passenger van offers its passengers a comfortable and safe form of transportation. And the van comes equipped with several customizable features that allow this van to fit a variety of needs.


While the Nissan NV is an impressive van, there are a few other large passenger vans on the market that try to offer the same convenience and comfort features that the NV offers. To better illustrate our point, here is an in-depth review of the popular Ford Transit and the Nissan NV Passenger.


Exterior Style


The Ford Transit and Nissan NV have two vastly different looks when it comes to their exterior. The Ford Transit has a large, box-shaped body that looks a bit bulky and lacks any semblance of modern style.


The Nissan NV, however, is outlined in sleek curves that help to give it a sportier look while also eliminating the box-like look that many passenger vans have. The NV's is not only stylish, but it is also functional. The low-sitting front bumper improves capability, and the telescoping side mirrors help to ensure the driver is able to clearly see behind the vehicle.


Interior Features


The NV is able to seat up to 12 passengers and Nissan has gone to great lengths to ensure that every occupant is comfortable. This four-row van provides two heater vents in the floor of every row and the rear overhead air condition vents ensure that backseat passengers don't get too warm in the summer months. There is plenty of legroom in all four rows, and for an added level of convenience, every row has several slide-out cup holders that are located under the seat.


The NV also allows you to customize your passenger and cargo space. With six independent rear seats, you can remove as many rear seats as you want to create a total of 324 seating options.


The Ford Transit does allow you to customize your passenger and cargo space, however; it is only able to seat up to 10 passengers.


Advanced Safet Features


The NV offers a wide range of safety features. Some of the safety features that you will find on this impressive vehicle include:


• LATCH child safety system
• Vehicle Dynamic Control with Traction Control system
• Dual-Stage supplemental airbags for the driver and front-seat passengers
• Roof-Mounted Side-Curtain Airbags
• Zone Body Construction with Front and Rear Crumple Zones
• Energy-Absorbing Steering Colum
• Tire Pressure Monitor System


No other van on the market offers a more comprehensive safety system to help keep all passengers safe.


Power and Performance


The Nissan NV allows drivers to choose between two powerful engines. The van comes standard with a 4.0-litre V6 engine that delivers 261 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque. The available and powerful 5.6-litre V8 engine delivers an impressive 375 horsepower and 387 lb-ft of torque and is able to tow up to 8,700 pounds.


The Ford Transit offers one engine which is the 3.5-litre V6 engine that is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and delivers up to 275 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.


There is no denying that the 2020 Nissan NV Passenger is one of the most impressive large vans in its class. If you would like to see for yourself how truly stunning this van is, then feel free to contact us today.
