Buy Used Nissan Van Models

Nissan vans are built for function, not to be pretty. And it is a good thing they deliver on the former because if this was a beauty pageant, they’d be booed off the stage. Mostly designed for commercial use, they fell out of favor in the face of stiff competition from the likes of Ford, Ram, and Mercedes-Benz. However, you may still find some used models being sold in the US.

Price of Nissan Van Models

This is a list of the Nissan van models that were once sold in the USA, and which may still be available secondhand:

Model Power Engine Base Price
Nissan NV Cargo 261 hp 4.0L V6 Gas $30,640
Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo 131 hp 2.0L Inline-4 Gas $23,630
Nissan Quest 260 hp 3.5L V6 Gas TBC
Nissan NV Passenger 261 hp 4.0L V6 Gas $36,860

What to Consider Before Buying

Vans are built to do work, so they need to meet a lot of expectations and allow buyers to spec them according to their individual needs. Nissan cargo vans suffer from slightly fewer configuration options, but they still have some good points. These are the areas where these vehicles shone or fell short.


  • Powerful engines
  • Affordable prices
  • Great towing capability
  • Passenger variants are comfortable
  • Fuel-efficient when compared to rivals


  • Subpar cabins
  • Smaller van is sluggish
  • Limited options


How many people can fit in a Nissan passenger van?

With 324 possible seating configurations, the NV Passenger could be a 2-seater, an 8-seater, or even a 12-seater, with access to each seat determined by how you wanted the cabin laid out.

How much does a Nissan van cost?

Typically cheaper than many rivals when they were sold new, a secondhand Nissan van could be picked up for a surprisingly small amount of money. The NV Cargo cost around $30,000 new, while the smaller NV200 Compact went for $25k or thereabouts. For those looking to move people instead of stuff, the NV Passenger carried a price tag of around $37,000 when sold new.

Can a Nissan van go off-road?

While these are considered work vans, they are not meant to be off-road cars. Regardless of the model or trim you choose, they come with two-wheel drive only. AWD is not offered, let alone a 4x4 off-roading drivetrain.

Do Nissan vans deliver good mileage?

The smaller NV200 model is the lightest sipper, achieving 24/26/25 mpg city/highway/combined. But it is worth noting that you’d be sacrificing a whole lot of utility and capability in return for the kinder fuel bills. In comparison, the full-size NV Cargo could manage only 14 mpg combined with its most efficient automatic transmission.

Does Nissan make a minivan?

There is no Nissan minivan for sale as new in the USA at present. The Nissan Quest was the last minivan the brand offered, and it was discontinued in 2017. You might still find a used model when shopping in the second-hand car market.
