Is this the 2021 Nissan Navara? New Toyota HiLux rival snapped with tough, Titan-style front end

International media has captured what appears to be a snap of the new Nissan Navara

The new Nissan Navara appears to have been captures undisguised, revealing a new and tougher Titan-style front end for the updated Toyota HiLux and Isuzu D-Max rival.

Nissan's truck will continue the tsunami of new dual-cabs currently washing over Australia, with the new Toyota HiLux, Isuzu D-Max, Great Wall Cannon and Mazda BT-50 all having either launched, or preparing to launch, in our market.

This image, published in Thailand's Headlight Magazine, reveals a truck with a much bigger, squared-off grille, as well as a new-look front-end styling and bigger, bolder headlights.

In fact, the new Navara - if this is the finished product - is starting to look a lot like a mini Nissan Titan, the brand's US-spec pick-up that has long been on the cards for an Australian launch.

While the look of the new Navara - which is expected to debut in late 2020 or early 2021 - will change, the core mechanics won't, with most versions of the new truck to remain powered by the brand's 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel good for 140kW and 450Nm, with a single-turbo version of that engine also available.
