Nissan NV Cargo X Project
What do you get when you take a regular NV2500 HD van and transform it into a lifted and diesel-powered 4x4 that can go anywhere? A Nissan NV Cargo X project vehicle of course.
Nissan partners with Ian Johnson
When it comes to vans, Nissan has done it all over the years. They have experimented with a fuel-cell vehicle that drank biofuel, one was used to drift and another was used as a mobile office with a pull-out deck and a built-in coffee machine. But these were all restricted to asphalt. Now however, Nissan has partnered with famous off-road builder and Extreme off-Road host Ian Johnson to build a van fit for any terrain. "When I looked at the NV, I saw a hard-working van with a heavy-duty foundation," Johnson said in a press release.
"And I also saw possibilities for a rock crawler that could serve as its own support vehicle."
In with the new
A number of stock parts were swapped for more intense off-road pieces. The standard front control-arm setup was replaced by a custom off-road suspension system, and the standard 5.6-litre petrol V8 was swapped for a Cummins 5.0-litre V8 turbo-diesel from the Nissan Titan XD. The Titans six-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel-drive system was swapped in as well. The exterior was completed with LED lights, a tube bumper with a skid plate, a 10 000 pound winch, and huge 37-inch General Grabber x3 tires. The final product has 22 inches of ground clearance, and stands 92 inches tall.
The interior has been transformed into a full-out off-road support vehicle with an air system, rope, spare tire, recovery tracks, fluid storage, and so much more. Once again, Nissan have outdone themselves.
