The Nissan Navara is the first mainstream bakkie with a coil rear suspension similar to large SUVs. The heavy-duty 5-link coil rear suspension versus the traditional rear leaf suspension offers exceptional ride comfort, absorbing the bumps on and off-road. In addition, the high lateral rigidity with springs, stabiliser and dampers tuned for optimum performance improves steering properties for superior handling and cornering ability on gravel and tar.
DEVOURS ROAD, SIPS FUEL
The Nissan Navara shows how power, acceleration and fuel efficiency can not only coexist, but thrive. Powered by an advanced twin-turbo diesel engine with a wide torque curve, the small turbo gets you moving at low engine speeds while the larger one delivers linear, constant power for longer. Class-leading fuel efficiency is further achieved by using low friction components, reduced mass, wide range gear transmissions and enhanced aerodynamics.
TRANSMISSION OF POWER
GEAR UP FOR ANY JOB
With power comes great responsibility – our transmission ensures good balance between acceleration and fuel economy. Whether you prefer the convenience of an automatic or the precision of a traditional manual, the Nissan Navara lets you select gears your way.
ALL THE GEARS YOU NEED
With a 7-speed automatic transmission, give your right foot the power for passing traffic or efficient cruising. Or use the manual shift mode that lets you select and hold the desired gear, for ultimate pulling power or whenever there’s a hill to conquer.
EXPERIENCE THE HIGHS AND LOWS
With this smooth-shifting 6-speed manual transmission, you’ll always be able to find the right gear for the job. It features a low first-gear ratio for maximum low-end torque, while a high final-gear ratio ensures you’ll get great fuel efficiency on the highway, too.
PLENTY OF POWER TO PULL
3.5 TONS BRAKED TOWING CAPACITY. FOR WORK OR PLAY
The boat, trailer or horsebox can definitely come along. Capable towing is engineered right into the Nissan Navara with a braked towing capacity of 3.5T, you can pull some serious weight and get the job done. Add to that heavy duty components, including braking, transmission and cooling systems, plus plenty of power and low-end torque, and you’re ready to pull some serious weight.
TAKE YOUR OWN PATH
Whether it’s the depths of the bush or the concrete jungle, the Nissan Navara is always in its element and geared for any type of adventure. With an exceptional 33 degree approach angle, a 27.9 degree departure angle and all components tucked up under the frame for an increased ground clearance of 226 mm, the Navara easily conquers any terrain.
A MODE FOR EVERY SEASON
Easily select the best driving mode by turning a knob. The shift-on-the-fly 4WD system allows you to shift from 2WD to 4H while driving up to 100km per hour.
4WD High is ideal for light off-road driving, while 4WD Low is for serious off-roading in sand, snow or deep mud. When the highway calls, 2WD keeps things more economical.
READY FOR WHAT’S AHEAD
Whenever it senses a wheel beginning to slip, the Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) system automatically brakes the slipping wheel and sends additional power to the wheels with the most traction.
ULTIMATE OFF-ROAD CAPABILITY
When 4x4 isn’t enough, the electronic locking rear differential delivers equal power to both rear wheels, boosting traction to help keep you moving forward.
FANCY FOOTWORK NOT REQUIRED
When starting on an incline, Hill Start Assist can help keep you from rolling backwards. It simply holds the brakes for a few seconds so you can switch from brake pedal to accelerator with confidence.
SLOW AND STEADY
When driving down hilly terrain, Hill Descent Control automatically maintains a steady speed and brake pressure to help you safely get back down a steep grade.
ROCK SOLID FROM THE GROUND UP
FULLY BOXED, FULLY CAPABLE
With a full-length, fully boxed ladder frame, the Nissan Navara has proven to be one of the toughest bakkies on the road. The full-length, fully boxed ladder frame is built with super-high-tensile-strength steel in strategic areas for enhanced structural rigidity. Stronger than conventional steel for increased torsional stiffness, it helps deliver awe-inspiring performance, on- and off-road.
