Hmm, I look at the hood length and wheelbase on that thing and think that they might as well convert Chevy Suburbans or Ford Excursions into Sportsmobiles. It seems to me that Nissan have designed a vehicle that successfully avoids all the benefits of a van: ie. shorter wheelbase, short hood, forward seating position with good visibility etc. I thought they stopped making vans like that back in 1949 with the last of the Suburban 2-door models.
Whatever made them think some of these Nissans wouldn't work in the USA?
Hell, the Nissan Primastar was even designed and built in collaboration with GM and ahem, gets around 30 US mpg in the combined cycle
