Nissan NV Cargo X Concept Van Video

Nissan-nv-cargo-x-chicago-2017 II

It's not every day you see a full-size commercial van modified to take on some of the toughest 4x4 trails around, but that's what the truck builders on Spike TV's "Xtreme 4x4" did with this new Nissan full-size concept van based on the NV2500 HD. Called the Cargo X, this van has new front and rear live axles, locking differentials, 37-inch tires and more trail-sourced sheet-metal dents than you can count. Here's our video featuring this unique vehicle.

Pretty cool concept, way beyond the capability of any GM product past or future. As for present on life support.

Trash Motor Company fan boys bash concepts now, because they know the Power Wagon and ZR2 crush their Craptor.

Is the ZR2 available if so where are the tests and or the owners reviews.

The PowerWagon is a Ram product. Where are the GM off road products.

Where are the GM off road products?

@GM crisis

are you old enough to remember the H2 and H3? Have you ever driven one?

The H2 and to a lesser extent the H3 were killer off road SUVs. They didn't do much else very well but they were a solid gold bitch in the rough stuff.

What's your favorite off roader and do you own one?

@GM Crisis, Where are the GM off road products? Did you mean where has PapaJim been? Do we need to go back years to find an off roader offered by Chevy or gmc? One the others are out for awhile they will most likely copy and jump in...

Don't need a test, just look at the numbers, and you'll know it'd b slap a Trash Motors Craptor. Better approach/breakover/departure angles, front/rear lockers, a diesel engine, and its way more narrow plus starts thousands less even with a diesel engine. Trash Motors Craptor don't stand a chance.

@Nitro

Did you look at the 2015-2016 sales numbers for pickups? GM trashed Ford two years running.

Who cares what is off road or not? It's a micro market compared to the bread/butter SUVs and Pickups that GM uses to whip Ford's butt every year.

Do you think the paltry number of Raptors that Ford sells in 2017 will make any difference in the totals?

I don't.

Nissan fiddles while the Frontier takes a back seat after 10yrs to a "off road" VAN!!
Glad I sold my Nissan stock early last month when the company had no plans on a Frontier release for at least several more years.

Interesting idea for a shagin wagon RV..

If it was made by GM Id definitely wanted one,,

lol

A lot of manufacturers make 4 x4 Vans from the factory but ironically enough not Nissan

Solid axle fronts are so 1980's!

Military uses independent suspensions now!

Oxi, You need to go out beyond a gravel covered road. lol

My truck has heavy duty solid axles. Front diff is bigger than most 1/2 ton rear diffs.

This is cool.

In my part of the world there would be a market for 4x4 passenger and cargo vans. Diesel Excursions were very popular among companies with large crews.

@papajim, yes I did see the numbers, and you are correct, GM needs a ton of trucks across the line to as you say"trash" Ford. But since we mostly talk about 1/2 tons, lets look at those half tons shall we? Ford number 1 going on 40 straight.....

Raptor sales compared to what? Gms version, oh wait non existent unless you count the old Hummers

papajim, yes I did see the numbers, and you are correct

@Nitro

Now you understand. Perfect. Anytime you have a question about pickups or SUVs, just call on the old professor---Papajim.

Class dismissed!

The NV was by far the most modern and advanced body on frame van out there. Heads and shoulders better than the competition and built like a tank with a very impressive commercial warranty. Im not sure how it rates against Fiat and Ford's new full size, modern, eurostyle vans but GM lags VERY badly in this segment.

The only really silly thing about this "concept" is there really isn't anything to be gained from it from a manufactuer/manufacturing prospective. For a custom/offroad shop its a display of skill and an offering. I much prefer "concepts" that actually have at least elements of their "concepts" incorporated into production at some point to at least some degree. Since Nissan will never be offering a 4x4 NV this is just advertising for the customizer.

@papa, you really are related to GMS arent you?

HEMI V8, so why is the military buying so many independent suspensions for their heavy tactical trucks again?

Yeah, you know nothing!

papajim h2 was the worst offroad vehicle ever made

Remember he only knows what fiat tells him. The magazines at the dealers service department waiting room, allpar, and what he finds on YouTube. He knows nothing.

Please present data on the total # of F-150 sold in 2016.

Thank you.

H1 was rated the most overrated 4x4 so go figure.

Looks rugged and I 'll wager it can do any trail. This is Way more than I have any use for, it does look neat though.

OK bend over!
