Nissan is getting to work launching its NV commercial vehicle in the North American market, and prices have just been announced. The body-on-frame NV will be built in Canton, Mississippi and will start at $24,590 for a V6-powered NV with standard roof. A high-roof SV-trim NV 3500 with a 317-hp, 5.6-liter V8 rings up at $32,190.

Nissan's work van offering joins the ranks of a burgeoning segment populated by vehicles like the Ford Transit Connect, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and even the Dodge Grand Caravan Cargo Van. The only one of those vehicles that approaches the NV's space is the Sprinter, and Nissan's muscular V6 and V8 powertrains are brawnier than everyone else. It's almost enough to make you want to go to work. Almost. Press release posted after the jump.

About the 2012 Nissan NV

Scheduled to launch in spring 2011, the Nissan NV is available in three models, NV1500, NV2500 HD and NV3500 HD, and in two roof configurations – Standard Roof and High Roof. The NV is the first commercial van to offer rugged body-on-frame construction combined with a High Roof, offering most users the ability to walk, stand and work in the cargo area.

The NV's rugged, masculine design combines a full-length hood with access to the engine for service and maintenance, along with signature Nissan styling cues such as large headlights and vertical grille. The broad bodysides project a serious commercial vehicle appearance and provide ample room for company logos and advertising messages. The tall, wide doors offer easy access to the cargo area.

Inside the cab is a roomy comfortable interior with wide, supportive seating and an expansive instrument panel. The passenger seat includes a segment-exclusive fold-down feature, providing a convenient worktable. An available lockable center console offers innovative storage compartments and space to hold binders, hanging file folders and a laptop computer. Other convenient storage spaces include a wide overhead console (available with High Roof models), underseat storage drawers (NV2500 HD and NV3500 HD models) and large door pockets.

The NV also provides exceptional utility, thanks to a long, wide cargo floor, square-top wheelwell housings and nearly vertical sidewalls. Along with maximizing cargo space, the sidewalls accommodate aftermarket storage systems without excessive modification. The cargo area also features a full-length inner panel to prevent cargo from denting the vehicle's outer skin (SV models). There are also multiple integrated reinforced mounting points for durable installation of cargo customization equipment.

Powering the rear-wheel drive Nissan NV is a choice of two powerful yet fuel-efficient engines – a 4.0-liter V6 rated at 261 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque, and a 5.6-liter V8 rated at 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque. Both are mated to a standard 5-speed automatic transmission.

Autoblog loses credibility by not mentioning fullsize van stalwarts Econoline, Express and Savana as competitors for the NV.

*raises eyebrow* Wait... if these aren't out yet, how the hell did one end up in little ol' Brookville? I guess I should've looked for a manufacturer plate...

Saw a black one today, the high roof version...it was driving along with a couple Sprinters. kind of odd looking in profile, like a pickup truck front clip grafted to a van body.

There's been one in white on ol'Route 25 at a used car lot (not for sale just parked there) since Nov. or Dec they look odd with the blanks and the window stampings. At least the HHR was minus the stampings and looked clean.
