Nissan Navara 2019 range sees ST Black Edition and SL Silverline added

The new Nissan Navara ST Black Edition builds on the mid-spec ST and adds a lot of extra attitude.

The Nissan Navara 2019 range has seen the addition of two new value-focused variants in the form of the highly accessorised ST Black Edition and the budget-friendly SL Silverline model.

Unlike some rival brands that are focusing on the top end of their respective ranges, the two new limited edition dual cab four-wheel drive Navara models are based on more affordable variants in the range.

The SL Silverline builds on the SL grade, while the ST Black Edition is based on the ST. And in both cases, the added-value versions don’t attract any additional cost - but each is limited to just 900 units.

The ST Black Edition includes a 7.0-inch media screen and leather-trimmed steering wheel. The ST Black Edition includes a 7.0-inch media screen and leather-trimmed steering wheel.

The SL Silverline model is priced at the same point as the SL, with the six-speed manual version coming in at $43,990 and the seven-speed auto at $46,490. The SL model is usually offered in work-friendly trim, with a vinyl floor, fabric seats, a plastic steering wheel and a 5.0-inch media screen without sat nav but with Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

Over the SL, the SL Silverline gains 16-inch alloy wheels (instead of steel wheels), a polished alloy sports bar, Silverline tailgate badge, and the interior sees the addition of a mobile phone holder. Other standard gear shared with the regular SL includes an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, electronic rear differential lock, privacy glass, LED headlights and daytime running lights and cruise control.

The ST Black Edition is priced identically to the two versions of the ST already sold: the manual, at $47,190, and the auto, at $49,690. It builds on the stuff already offered in the ST, which includes a 7.0-inch media screen with sat nav (plus Bluetooth and USB), cloth trim, vinyl flooring and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. 

As you may have deduced from the model name, the ST Black Edition gets a lot of black additions, including: black 18-inch alloy wheels with all-terrain tyres, a black grille, black sports bar, wheelarch flares, black nudge bar, LED light bar, soft tonneau cover, a tubliner for the tray, black mirror caps, black fog light surrounds and a smoked bonnet protector.

Of course there are also some decals (it wouldn’t be a special edition ute without stickers), and there is also a mobile phone holder in the cabin. 

Both models are powered by Nissan’s 2.3-litre four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine, which produces 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque. The company claims towing capability of 750kg for an unbraked trailer and 3500kg braked towing capacity. 

Fuel consumption for the Navara SL Silver and ST Black Edition is identical to the non special-edition versions, at 6.5 litres per 100km for the manual versions, while automatic models claim 7.0L/100km.
