It has been 6 years since the global debut of the Nissan Navara NP300 generation. And now the 2021 Nissan Navara facelift is finally being revealed after multiple teasing.
As can be seen in the previous teaser, the headlights are LED units with daytime running lights (DRL). Taillights are also LED units with new signature graphics. It also bears the new face of the V-Motion family.
There’s a new PRO-4X class with a black Nissan badge, black front bumper and grille, door handles, roof racks and running boards accented by black 17-inch wheels and off-road tires. It also adds orange-red accents, a tint inspired by the color magma that contrasts with the dark grill, wheels, and mirror caps.
In the drive train, the 2.3-liter engine with two turbochargers is transmitted together with the 7-speed automatic transmission. It makes 190 hp and 450 Nm of torque.
However, it remains to be seen whether we’ll get the more advanced 2.3L engine compared to the older 2.5L single turbo we’re getting here. The outputs are identical and make 190 hp / 450 Nm.
Like the Navara before the facelift, unlike most other pick-ups with leaf springs, it uses multi-link coil suspension at the rear. This gives it an advantage in passenger comfort, but what is more impressive is that the payload is 1.1 tons.
When it is retracted, it receives the new steering wheel from the Nissan family, as seen in the Nissan X-Trail facelift and in the brand new Nissan Almera. The 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display supports Apple CarPlay / Android Auto and there is also a 360-degree view camera. Navara now has multiple USB ports throughout the vehicle for charging devices, with the USB-C port in the console.
Thanks to the increased sound insulation and the laminated windshield as well as the windshields, the new Navara should have significantly improved smoothness, which further reduces the burden on the driver and front passenger.
The 2021 Nissan Navara Facelift is available with a range of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that bundle the following:
Warning of blind spots
Intelligent blind spot intervention
Intelligent forward collision warning
Intelligent emergency braking (AEB)
Lane Departure Warning
Intelligent lane intervention
