NISSAN has unveiled the next generation Navara ute, a vehicle that delivers an enhanced level of safety, comfort and driving pleasure, while continuing to bring durability, reliability and versatility.
The new Navara marks another milestone in the company’s Nissan NEXT transformation plan. A reliable partner for work or leisure, it comes with many best-in-class technologies, including an array of Nissan Intelligent Mobility features and safety systems.
The Navara is renowned for its tough looks, robust capabilities, reliability and versatility, making it one of the most respected and anticipated models across the brand’s line-up, in many regions.
The Navara now comes with a more extroverted and athletic design, a quieter and more comfortable interior, as well as an already renowned suspension tune that enhances the Navara’s on and off-road dynamic driving performance.
The pickup also features an increased payload capacity, with the Navara one-ton pickup now delivering payload capacity up to 1.2 tonnes. Further elevating the ute’s rugged character is the introduction of the PRO-4X grade, a first for the Navara nameplate.
PRO-4X offers an even more impressive, eye-catching style to appeal to extreme adventure lovers who crave an escape from the daily routine.
The new Navara utilises Nissan’s frame-vehicles ‘unbreakable’ design language and introduces a new ruggedly bold, stylish exterior made for extreme elements, living up to the promise of durability and versatility the model has long delivered.
The Navara’s front fascia has been renewed to be unique and easily recognizable. It carries the new interlock grille, a unique feature found exclusively on the Nissan ute family and first introduced on the latest Nissan Titan.
New, high-tech C-shaped quad LED projector headlamps feature, increasing brightness and adding a level of sophistication to the rugged design.
At the back, seamless signature LED tail lamps provide an impressive appearance. This increased brightness creates another layer of safety for customers driving at night and low visibility scenarios.
For added convenience, the Navara is equipped with a new rear bumper with integrated step for ease of access and use. New side step finishers also contribute to better aerodynamic performance, decreasing wind noise and improving fuel efficiency.
Inside, there’s significantly improved quietness, thanks to the increased amounts of sound deadening insulation, further reducing the stress for both driver and occupants. Additionally, the ute’s front is now more convenient and driver-oriented.
This includes a new Nissan steering wheel and improved styling of the instrument panel highlighting the 8 inch navigation screen and a 7 inch higher resolution TFT screen.
The rear seats are now even more comfortable for passengers, with upgrades to the seat cushions and back shapes. For added convenience, passengers in the back can also now utilize the new rear armrest with built-in cup holders to store beverages or smartphones.
The newly introduced PRO-4X grade comes with its own distinctive, athletic look with a black Nissan emblem, a black front bumper and black grille, door handles, roof racks and running boards accented by 17-inch black wheels and all terrain tires.
The PRO-4X takes the design up another notch with lively, red accents, a tint inspired by the colour of magma, contrasted with the dark grille, wheels, and mirror caps.
The PRO-4X line also uses a signature red colour for the Nissan wordmark on the black emblem, as well as other red accents inside and outside the car.
The 2021 Nissan Navara will be available in eight exterior colours, with two new colours (Forged Copper and Stealth Grey, developed for the PRO-4X grade) with cloth or leather interior options available.
The new model returns with best-in-class technology through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, making it the most advanced Navara ever.
These technologies create a 360 degree safety shield for the vehicle, helping protect the driver and passengers from potential risks and delivering peace of mind.
Among these systems is intelligent forward collision warning and intelligent emergency braking. For the first time, the system also features an off-road monitor, made to confirm surrounding obstacles at low speeds when in four-wheel drive.
To meet the increasing needs of connected lifestyles, the pickup is now equipped with the new Nissan Connect infotainment system, allowing smartphone integration for features such as Bluetooth streaming audio, voice recognition, and satellite navigation.
Under the hood remains the 2.3-litre intercooled twin turbo-diesel, producing 140kW and 450Nm. Fuel economy is set to be 7.5-litres/100kms in the manual and 8.1 in the auto. Transmissions are a choice of a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic.
The latest Navara will be available in Australia in early 2021, with further details and pricing announced closer to launch.
