Japanese automaker Nissan has revealed something new and innovative for global off-road enthusiasts, in form of the NV Cargo X off-road van. The one-of-its kind vehicle is based on the NV 2500HD cargo vans, but the only component it carries forth from the original is the van’s body and the frame, while the rest of the components have been excluded for obvious reasons.

Under the hood, the Nissan NV Cargo X off-roader is powered by Cummins 5.0-liter V8 diesel engine which produces 306bhp and 555 lb-ft of torque. The powerful engine comes mated to Titan's 6-speed automatic and four-wheel-drive system. The suspension system has been reworked as the off-road cargo van now comes with heavy-duty leaf-springs and shocks to the rear, while the front gets a coil-sprung front axle instead of stock independent suspension. The van gets good 22 inches of ground clearance as it sits neatly on 37-inch off-road tyres.

Speaking in terms of design, the Nissan NV Cargo gets LED auxiliary lights on the front on the right side of the A-pillar. The tube-frame bumper has been toughened and gets a skid plate on the nose. Additionally, the bumper also gets a 10,000-pound winch which helps clear the debris and get out of tricky spots. The cargo bay has been out to good use with full-size 37-inch spare tyre, recovery equipment, high-lift jack, a welder, tools, and compressed air. Nissan will showcase the off-road cargo van at the upcoming Chicago auto show on February 11.
