New Nissan Navara Revealed, Along With Pro-4X Variant

At an online launch today, Nissan revealed the facelifted Navara pick-up truck. Besides a tough looking fresh design, the new Navara adds loads of new safety and convenience equipment from the Nissan Intelligent Mobility suite of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.

This includes Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Emergency Braking, A carry over feature from the current model is Intelligent Around View Monitor, which stitches together footage from four cameras to give drivers a bird’s eye view while parking or moving through tight spaces. The new Around View Monitor system is of better quality and even features a new ‘off-road monitor’.

Other improvements to the new Nissan Navara include:

  • Strengthened rear axle
  • increased payload capacity
  • additional truck bed volume
  • new integrated step in the rear bumper
  • a new steering rack
  • improved NVH characteristics
BHP diesel

Nissan have also added a new Navara PRO-4X variant. This style package adds a more rugged and athletic look. There are more black and orange accents scattered throughout along with 17” black wheels and all-terrain tyres to complete the look. This reminds us of the Nissan Navara N-Trek Warrior, which was introduced in selected markets very late into the current Navara’s model cycle. Most of the photos presented today are of the Navara PRO-4X model. The interior of this model features new leather upholstery with white and red stitching, black trim pieces, a semi-digital instrument cluster, and Apple Carplay connectivity.

Just like the N-Trek Warrior, it’s likely the PRO-4X will not get an engine or transmission upgrade over the standard Navara. This is in stark contrast to its rivals, the Ford Ranger Raptor and the Toyota Hilux Rogue.

PRESS RELEASE

Nissan today unveiled the new Nissan Navara pickup*, that delivers an enhanced level of safety, comfort and driving pleasure, while continuing to bring durability, reliability and versatility.

The pickup, known as the Nissan Frontier in Mexico and South America, marks another milestone in the company’s Nissan NEXT transformation plan.

Over the many decades since the first Nissan pickup hit the road, the Nissan Navara has continued to accompany and empower customers in many facets of their lives.

Building on more than 80 years of Nissan pickup heritage, it stays true to the company’s belief in bringing advanced technologies to as many customers as possible.

A reliable partner for work or travel, the new Nissan Navara comes with many best-in-class technologies, including an array of Nissan Intelligent Mobility features and safety systems, making it the most advanced Navara yet.

Among the Nissan Intelligent Mobility features that will be available across the global Navara and Frontier lineup is Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, which monitors the second vehicle ahead as well as the vehicle directly in front to reduce the risk of multi-car accidents. Intelligent Emergency Braking activates the brakes to avoid collisions, reducing the stress of driving in traffic or on busy streets.

Intelligent Around View Monitor uses four cameras to help drivers notice people and cars surrounding and approaching the vehicle, making it easier to parallel park or to position the vehicle when hitching to a trailer. New to the system is an off-road monitor, which checks surrounding obstacles at low speeds when in four-wheel drive mode.

The new model features* a strengthened rear axle, increased payload capacity, additional truck bed volume and a new integrated step in the rear bumper for easier access to the truck bed. A new steering rack has been adopted to enhance maneuverability at low speeds and steering response across the speed range.

It offers a quiet and comfortable ride thanks to significant decrease of vibration and improved noise isolation.

These new features make the vehicle the ultimate travel and worksite partner, prepared to take on new challenges while still offering optimal room, comfort, safety and ease of work.

The new model features an “unbreakable” design language. It introduces a new ruggedly bold, stylish exterior made for extreme elements.

For the first time for the Navara and Frontier, Nissan will offer the PRO-4X grade, a style package aimed at adventure lovers and travelers craving an escape from their daily routine. The PRO-4X grade comes with its own athletic look, with a black emblem, orange-accented front bumper, black grille, door handles, roof racks and running boards accented by 17-inch black wheels and all-terrain tires.

The new pickup goes on sale in December in Thailand, with other markets to follow later.
