Nissan is marking a significant milestone with the 50th Anniversary of the original Caravan light commercial vehicle in Japan. This Nissan Caravan 50th Anniversary Edition brings some special visual touches to the classic design that's been a favorite for many years.
Nissan Caravan, now in its sixth generation and initially named NV350, first hit the scene back in 2011.
This unique vehicle is based on the Grand Premium GX trim, featuring a single body type with a length of 200 inches, a stretched wheelbase, standard roof height, and a low floor. Moreover, the 50th Anniversary Edition stands out with a sleek black finish on the grille, electrically retractable mirrors, door handles, sliding door rails, and tailgate garnish. You'll spot "50th Anniversary" emblems on the tailgate and embroidered on the headrests.
Under the hood, you have a choice between a 2.0-liter petrol engine producing 129 hp and 131 lb-ft of torque or a Mitsubishi-sourced 2.5-liter diesel engine churning out 130 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The power is delivered to either the rear or all four wheels through a 7-speed automatic gearbox.
For those interested in getting their hands on this Nissan Caravan 50th Anniversary Edition, sales in Japan kick off on October 10 and run until March 2024. The pricing starts at ¥3,483,700 ($23,668) for the 2WD version, going up to ¥4,453,900 ($30,260) for the 4WD with the diesel engine. It's an exciting choice for anyone looking for a blend of style and utility in their commercial vehicle.
