Nissan Navara PRO-4X joins refreshed 2021 line-up

The Nissan Navara has been given a major refreshed.

Launching as the 2021 model, the updated Nissan Navara now comes with a more extroverted and athletic design, a quieter and more comfortable interior, as well as an increase in payload capacity, with the Navara one-ton pickup now delivering payload capacity up to 1.2 tonnes.

Building on the pickup’s tough character is a significant upgrade in equipment supported by a suite of new Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies. As part of the update, Nissan is introducing the first-ever PRO-4X grade, offering a ruggedised style designed to appeal to extreme adventurer lovers.

Design

The Navara’s front fascia has been redesigned with the new “interlock” grille – a unique feature found exclusively on the Nissan pickup family and first introduced on the latest Nissan Titan. Thicker and vertical in shape, the interlocking frame grille gives the impression that it is “coming out and grabbing the engine”, enhancing the Navara’s boldness and strength, while underlining its “go anywhere” capabilities.

Further highlighting the pickup’s rugged stance is the model name proudly embossed on top of the front grille and across the full width of the rear tailgate.

New C-shaped quad LED projector headlamps flank the updated grille, while at the rear, seamless LED tail lamps give a more modern look.

For added convenience, the pickup is equipped with a new rear bumper with integrated step for ease of access and use. New side step finishers are also said to contribute to better aerodynamic performance, decreasing wind noise and improving fuel efficiency.

Interior

The new Navara promises a quieter cabin thanks to extra sound deadening insulation. The ute’s dashboard is also more convenient and driver-oriented, with highlights including a new steering wheel and redesigned instrumentation panel.

Seat comfort has been improved for rear passengers, with upgrades to the seat cushions and back shapes. For added convenience, passengers in the back can also now utilise the new rear armrest with built-in cup holders to store beverages or smartphones.

Further enhancing the convenience for both drivers and passengers, the Navara now has multiple USB ports throughout the vehicle. As a response to customer feedback, the new pick up now carries a new generation USB Type C port in the console, which can support fast charging of devices.

Nissan Navara PRO-4X

The newly introduced Nissan Navara 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 tyres. 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.

Powertrain and Chassis

The 2021 Nissan Navara carries over the current 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine that produces 140kW @ 3750 and 450Nm @ 1500-2500 for automatic variants and 120kW and 403Nm for manual models. All variants including the Navara PRO-4X can be had with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission.

The Navara comfort-biased all coil spring suspension is also retained, featuring a double wishbone setup at the front and a 5-point multi-link with shock absorber at the rear. Depending on grade, the Navara payload has been increased to 1.2 tonnes, with the adventure-focused PRO-4X variant capped at 1,095 for the manual model and 1,105 kg for automatic.

Colours

The new Nissan Navara is 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.
