2012 Nissan NV High Roof Grilled Cheese Truck Concept Left Side
Nissan’s full-size NV van is offered in both passenger and cargo-hauling forms, but for the Los Angeles Auto Show, however, Nissan has turned two NV models into something more delicious: food trucks. Nissan will march out two concepts, the Coolhaus Truck and Grilled Cheese Truck, at the Los Angeles Auto Show tomorrow. Both are based on the NV2500 High Roof model, which has about 77 inches in vertical space between its load floor and roof. It also features a standard 4.0-liter V-6 engine with 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque, and can be upgraded to a 5.6-liter V-8 that makes 317 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque. Both models feature a five-speed automatic transmission. As the name suggests, the Grilled Cheese Truck is a concept that serves grilled cheese sandwiches. The NV show model is actually a concept made for the already popular Grilled Cheese Truck franchise in the L.A. area, which serves up such crazy creations as a grilled caprese melt and a sandwich that combines macaroni, cheese, and barbecue pork. Predictably, its exterior treatment is reminiscent of cheese: an orange paintjob with what appears to be splashes of cheddar coming off the wheels. Not to be outdone, Nissan’s other concept--dubbed the Coolhaus--explores a different style of sandwich: the ice cream sandwich. But these aren’t humble vanilla-ice-cream filled confection. The Cool Haus truck serves flavors like Root Beer Float, Mango Sticky Rice, and something called Sexy Evil Genius. The truck is decorated with a slick silver and pink paintjob. As with any other food truck, both concepts received modifications inside and out, including fold-out serving windows, storage racks, and work counters. The trucks will be serving both kinds of sandwiches to showgoers at tomorrow’s LA Auto Show.

2012 Nissan NV 2500 V 6 SV Front Left Side View
The Nissan NV is a cargo van, so the normal metrics by which I evaluate a car are irrelevant. Sure, the steering feel is pretty lackluster, but it's light enough to make maneuvering this van a breeze. Yes, the air conditioning takes a long time to cool the cabin, but it does have 420.5 cubic feet of air to chill. The lack of side windows may make for horrific blind spots -- I turned my head when changing lanes, only to see bare metal -- but that's why the mirrors have convex inserts. The metal frames of the rear doors block the view of cars directly behind you -- OK, that's just plain annoying.

Many firms have tried to build a better mousetrap, but few have truly endeavored to develop a better full-size cargo van. Today's two best-selling designs -- The Ford E-Series and Chevrolet Express -- can be dated to the late 1990s, and adhere to a design ethic established in the early 1970s.
