Details And Images Of The New Nissan Navara Generation
|   Saturday, June 21, 2014
After several teaser images and a clip that partially revealed the inside, Nissan has officially unveiled the next generation Navara pick-up, but only the version for right-hand drive markets. The European model, however, will adopt the same design lines, changing only the position of the steering wheel.

As expected, the new Navara adopted the design philosophy of other younger brothers X-Trail and Qashqai. That means much more refined curved lines, a V-motion grid with chrome elements, daytime running LED lights, and turn signals incorporated into side mirrors.
The new generation comes with new colors too, including the Savannah Yellow and the Earth Bronze, both available with black side pillars and chrome elements.

The inside grew in terms of quality too. The materials and finishes are indeed superior and sometimes supplemented with aluminum or chrome inserts. Besides the centrally positioned multimedia system in the middle of the dashboard, Nissan offers a TFT screen behind the steering wheel between the two watches on board. It can provide information about navigation, compass, fuel level, and music playback through the external supports.

The engine range will be ensured by the 2.5 liters diesel unit, able to provide two levels of power. The first guarantees a power of 163 horsepower and a torque of 403 Nm, while the second takes care to provide a power of 190 hp and a torque of 450 Nm. Even so, the new engine versions are 11 percent more economical than the old generation. The Navara model will provide a petrol unit, a 2.5-liter engine, connected to a six speed manual or an automatic box with seven steps.

The four-cylinder unit is mated either to a four-wheel drive, which can be activated even when in motion, or just a front-wheel drive. The chassis has also been revised and is now more rigid. The suspension promises durability in hostile environment, and the turning radius was reduced to ease maneuverability in urban areas. To this is added one substantial package of support elements including Vehicle Dynamic Control, Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist and Active Brake Limited Slip.

Navara's story begins in 1997 when it came to replace an old model with an impressive career: the Nissan Hardbody Truck. The Navara name was inspired by the Navarre region of northern Spain. 
This is not the only connection of the model to the Iberian land because the Japanese production model is provided by Nissan's factory in Barcelona, where the builder wants to assemble the new Pulsar too, the compact intended to beat the Golf, Focus and Megane.

If Europe knows it by name Navara, in markets like the United States, Argentina, Mexico and Brazil the model is named Frontier. In the Middle East it has been named Winner, in Chile it was named Terrano, and in Bolivia, Fiera.

The first facelift came in 2000, and the new generation started in 2004 with a design that is dangerously close to the Nissan Titan, a model sold in the U.S. market. The Nissan Navara was sold in Europe with two diesel engines, rated at 142 horsepower and 172 horsepower. Few know that Suzuki sold a pick-up based on the Navara and called Equator. It was for the U.S. market only.
