The enhanced Nissan Navara pick-up truck has an array of upgraded technologies to ensure that it is top of the class in the pick-up truck sector. The ride will be smoother thanks to the Navara’s all-new six-speed manual transmission, and upgraded suspension improves the ride, handling, and comfort of the vehicle.
“This new generation Navara is developed from Nissan’s 80 years of experience designing robust and practical pick-ups, and represents an exciting new step for this vehicle,” said Paolo D’Ettore, LCV Business Unit Director.
“With its Go Anywhere capabilities and award-winning engineering, the Navara will undoubtedly maintain its status as the hero of Nissan’s LCV range far into the future.” The more efficient engine has fuel economy up to 40.9mpg (NEDC-back translation Combined Cycle) and emissions now starting from 182g CO2 per km.
As the ultimate versatile working tool, the Navara’s twin-turbo engine comes with a choice of two outputs offering 163PS / 120kW and 190PS / 140kW respectively. The entry-level engine also sees a 22Nm boost in torque to 425Nm, thanks to the change from single to twin-turbochargers.
Navara’s all-new six-speed manual transmission delivers a significant improvement in ease of shifting and refinement thanks to cable operation, adoption of a shorter gear lever, enhanced synchronisation, and reduced vibration. There has also been further tuning of the 7-speed automatic transmission, with improvements to comfort, refinement and responsiveness.
The Navara features the second generation of the SUV-like 5-link rear suspension, a radical departure from the leaf springs used on most competitor pick-ups, providing better comfort and control without compromising capability.
Other notable new features for this year’s model include Intelligent Trailer Sway Assist. This new system anticipates trailer sway by detecting yaw in the vehicle and making minute corrections in individual wheel braking and torque reduction to bring the vehicle and trailer back under control. Intelligent Emergency Braking, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control and Intelligent Around View Monitor are again included, cementing the Navara’s status as an all-purpose pick-up that packs the latest technology.
The Navara is sold in 109 countries worldwide and has an industry-leading pan-European five year/100,000-mile warranty as standard. This model is explicitly engineered with European customers in mind.
