Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Introduced last year, the NV is Nissan's first attempt at gaining a share in the full-size van category. Offered in either normal or high-top body styles, the NV competes with the Ford E-Series and GM's Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans.
The Nissan NV Cargo is available in three versions: 1500, 2500HD and 3500HD. In addition, the NV 3500HD can be ordered as a standard-roof passenger van providing room for up to 12 people. Nissan also offers the new NV200, which is a compact commercial van that's covered separately in the Cars.com Research section. New for 2013 There are no significant changes for 2013. Exterior The NV has the front of a pickup truck and the back of a cargo van. Buyers have the choice of two body styles for the cargo van: a high-top roof or standard roof. The side door, located on the passenger side, slides open to provide more than 40 inches of accessibility to the cargo area. That's wide enough for a forklift to load a pallet into the NV. The low step-entry height makes it easier to load cargo and for passengers to enter the cabin. Toward the rear, two doors swing out to a securable 90 degrees and can swing wider to open to 243 degrees. Nissan integrated mounted door magnets to prevent the cargo doors from shutting due to strong wind gusts or uneven terrain. Exterior features include:
Standard-roof NV models fit in most garages and through most drive-through lanes
Standard 17-inch steel wheels, available chrome and silver painted wheels (NV passenger van)
Available chrome bumper and side mirrors
Available privacy glass
Interior Designers at Nissan took the idea of a "mobile office" to the next level. Standard features include boxed wheel wells, a rear-door storage compartment and a large, versatile center console that features space for hanging files. There are many convenient storage spaces throughout the NV's interior, including ones under the seats, hidden in the driver's seat corner and overhead in vans equipped with the high roof. Nissan also offers a few high-tech options for the NV, including Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and a touch-screen navigation system.
Buyers who opt for the NV passenger van get seating for up to 12. There are various power outlets throughout the cabin. Interior features include:
Standard roof provides up to 234.1 cubic feet of cargo room; high roof offers 323.1 cubic feet
Standard heavy-duty waterproof vinyl seats
Available heated leather seats (passenger van)
Fits up to two 40-by-48-inch pallets (cargo van)
