So here is something right out of from your wildest imagination, as Nissan introduces its one-its-kind off-road cargo van in form of the NV Cargo X. Based on the NV 2500HD cargo vans, the new off-roader has dumped most of its stock components for obvious reasons. So basically, Nissan has only retained the body and frame from the NV 2500HD.
Nissan NV Cargo X off-roader is powered by Cummins 5.0-liter V8 diesel engine which produces 306bhp and 555 lb-ft of torque. The powerful engine comes mated to Titan’s 6-speed automatic and four-wheel-drive system. The suspension system has been reworked as the off-road cargo van now comes with heavy-duty leaf-springs and shocks to the rear, while the front gets a coil-sprung front axle instead of stock independent suspension. The van gets good 22 inches of ground clearance as it sits neatly on 37-inch off-road tyres.
In terms of design, the Nissan NV Cargo gets LED auxiliary lights on the front on the right side of the A-pillar. The tube-frame bumper has been toughened and gets a skid plate on the nose. Additionally, the bumper also gets a 10,000-pound winch which helps clear the debris and get out of tricky spots. The cargo bay has been out to good use with full-size 37-inch spare tyre, recovery equipment, high-lift jack, a welder, tools, and compressed air. The off-road cargo van will be showcased at the upcoming Chicago auto show on February 11.
