The new four-row, 12-passenger Nissan NV Passenger Van pricing is now available, with the NVP 3500 S model  starting at $31,690.

The 2012 Nissan NV Passenger Van is available in three model trims (S, SV, and SL) and either a 4.0-liter V6 or 5.6-liter V8 engine. Only the V8-powered model has the top-of-the-line SL trim.

The 4.0L V6 engine has 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque, while the V8 sports 317 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque. Both engines use Nissan’s Continuous Valve Timing Control (C-VTC) to help improve fuel efficiency and are also mated to a heavy-duty five-speed automatic transmission.

Assembled in Canton, Miss., the Nissan NV Passenger Van also offers amenities such as storage for a laptop and charger, business cards, hanging files, pens and paper, 12.0-volt outlets and more. Available technology options include a 5-inch touchscreen navigation display, Bluetooth hands-free, and XM Satellite Radio.
