I think the full size Nissan van is possibly the worst looking van on the planet, I hope GM doesn't go that route.
If they do that definitely will make my decision much easier

VW did the same think with the Chrysler minivan and VW Routan was a humiliating fiasco. I am sure that the program manager was promoted to manage great VW NOx numbers for EPA.

I have no doubts that Transit will own the commercial market in NA but for RV conversions Fiat will repeat its EU success.

I think that Nissan hired the famous Trabant designer to make their van so revolting, at least for me.

well . . "Nissan Van" could still mean they use the Opel Movano B / Renault Master III or it's successor . . (but Nissan as a Brand is more known to the US-Buyer than Renault or Opel . . so talking about a Renault van would pretty much scare everybody :) ) . . since it's a Renault Van . . and guess who is connected to (or some say, "owned by") Renault . . exactly! . . it's Nissan . . say hello to the Nissan NV400 . . or Opel Movano . . or Renault Master . . or the next Chevy Express . .

Interesting... looks I a bit like a cross of all three. Sprinter/Transit/ProMaster

I have to say, I'm not a big fan of the look in standard size . . the front is too bulky . . but LWB and extended it works well . .

before I bought my Sprinter I was looking at a few LWB Opel/Renault/Nissan Vans . . but the Transmission-Problems scared me away . .
