Nissan’s updated Navara has landed in Australia with promotional driveaway pricing, starting from $32,990 for ABN holders.
Nissan unveiled a heavily revised version of the ‘D23’ Navara ute earlier this year with a new, tougher look and equipment tweaks.
Underneath this new Navara is very similar to the D23 released back in 2014. The Navara retains its four-wheel coil suspension as the main point of difference between it and other competitors like the Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger and Isuzu D-Max.
Nissan offers driveaway incentives for ABN holders looking at the new Navara, with the most affordable 4×2 SL single cab chassis from $32,990 driveaway.
Rounding out the range is the new and angry-looking Pro-4X grade which takes the reins from the N-Trek variant, now from $59,790 driveaway.
This new variant is not to be confused with the Australian developed N-Trek Warrior. However, it sounds like Australians won’t have to wait too long for an updated Premcar fettled dual cab.
Outside, the Navara communicates Nissan’s ‘unbreakable’ design language with an all-new fascia pushed furthest by the Pro-4X’s aggressive blacked-out grille. There are new LED signatures, and the Navara looks much more menacing than before with its broad stance.
Engine choices stay the same, including a single-turbo 2.3-litre diesel engine with 120kW/403Nm outputs which exclusively powers 4×2 Navara models.
The flagship 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel will remain the more popular choice, outputs of 140kW and 450Nm are unchanged from before. Buyers can choose either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic.
Previously dubbed the RX, the workhorse SL 4×2 single cab chassis gets 17-inch steel wheels, manual gearbox, automatic headlights, an eight-inch touchscreen and cloth upholstery. Only city-speed AEB and driver-attention warning make it onto the SL for safety tech.
The 4×2 single cab SL starts from $32,990 driveaway, though this grade is available in all manner of permutations to suit buyer’s needs. Single, king and dual cab are offered, with the option of 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrains and either auto or manual gearbox.
Stepping up to the ST is a big jump – the mid-spec ute starts at $49,490 with a manual gearbox, pickup tub and 4×4. All 4×4 Navaras get a rear diff-lock, 17-inch alloys, twin-turbo engine and hill-descent control for greater off-road ability.
Inside, there are leather accents on the shifter and steering wheel, navigation and DAB radio. A 360-degree monitor, rear cross-traffic alert blind-spot monitoring and LED DRLs to bolster safety.
Where the ST is dual cab only, Nissan offers the high-spec ST-X variant in either king or dual cab from $55,790.
For the extra asking price, 18-inch alloy wheels and a polished sports bar adorn the ST-X exterior. Inside are heated, leather-accented seats with lumbar and electric adjustment, while a sunroof and keyless entry round out the upmarket ute.
The halo Pro-4x builds on the ST-X with Pro-4x embossing on the seats, terrain-view monitor, all-terrain tyres and obviously the distinctive exterior styling including the bespoke grille, LED lightbar, fender flares and black 18-inch alloy wheels.
Nissan’s heavily revised Navara line-up is on-sale in Australia now, backed by a generous OEM accessories catalogue.
