Nissan NV2500 (2011)

BASE PRICE RANGE: $25,000-$36,000*

WHAT'S NEW: While specifics remain TBD, next year Nissan will introduce a production version of the NV2500 to compete with vehicles like the Dodge Sprinter and Chevy Express/GMC Savana. The concept NV2500—dubbed a “rolling idea lab”—is based on a modified Titan chassis and features innovative and flexible approaches to storage, access, and utility.

COOL FACT: The NV2500 will be built in Canton, Mississippi, offer a Nissan-Cummins turbodiesel V-8, and use a new ZF automatic trans.

SUM UP: Rethinks the commercial-van formula. (nOT RATED)
