6 terrific cars for a tailgate party
Nissan NV Passenger SV
  • Nissan NV Passenger SV

  • Price: $35,740
  • Cost of options: $950
  • Gas mileage: N/A

Because NV is classified as a large truck, EPA fuel-economy estimates aren't available.

We like it because it can haul up to 12 people and still carry 19 cubic feet of cargo. If you need to carry more stuff for your tailgate party -- up to 121 cubic feet -- and fewer people, just pop out the seats row by row.

According to Nissan, there are 324 seating configurations. Every seating position has a seat belt, and the side curtain airbags protect every row. There are three 12-volt power outlets and two household-like 120-volt outlets.

We've priced it here with the $900 optional, 317-horsepower, 5.6-liter V-8 and five-speed automatic transmission because you'll need the V-8 power when the van is full.

Including iPod interface, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio, a backup camera and navigation system, the $950 technology package was a no-brainer.
