2015 Nissan Navara

Following several teasers, the Japanese carmaker has finally unveiled their upcoming pickup truck, the Nissan Navara. As we expected, the new Navara takes on the same design language we can see on the new Qashqai and X-Trail, which means the overall look is more refined with more fluent lines, a V-motion front grille with chromed elements, LED daytime running lights and side mirrors with turn signals.

The new generation Navara also comes with three new color options, including Savannah Yellow and The Earth Bronze, both available in combination with black pillars and chromed ornaments. The interior also evolved, with superior materials and chrome or aluminum inserts. Also, besides the central display for the multimedia system, the new Navara also features a TFT display located in the instrument cluster, between the main dials. This display offers information about the satellite navigation, compass, several details about the car’s status, such as fuel level, and information about the music played by the sound system.

Engine options for the new Nissan Navara include a 2.5-liter diesel available with two power outputs and 2.5-liter gasoline unit. The entry-level diesel produces 163-hp and 297 lb-ft (403 Nm), while the more powerful one provides 190-hp and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. The Japanese manufacturer didn’t release any other details about the engines, but they did mention fuel economy is improved by 11% and two transmissions will be available, a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic. Also, the new pickup comes with either front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive that can be activated while driving, while the chassis has been revised, the suspension can now take rougher conditions, while the turning circle has been reduced to allow better handling in urban traffic. A set of assist system are also available, such as Vehicle Dynamic Control, Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist and Active Break Limited Slip.
