The RX is the cheapest way into a Navara, with the range starting at $25,990 for the single-cab 4x2 with a six-speed manual, and stretching to $42,990 for a dual-cab 4x4 with an automatic.

The RX builds on the basic offering of the four-wheel drive-only DX, adding 16-inch steel wheels, chrome around the front grille, door handles or mirrors, keyless entry and central locking, powered windows and a reversing camera that beams its image onto the rearview mirror (on the king- and dual-cab cars), as there’s no multimedia screen at this level.

The dual-cab RX also gets updated suspension, six speakers and two new ISOFIX attachment points in the second row of seats. 

It’s powered a 2.3-litre diesel engine equipped with a single turbocharger that will generate120kW at 3750rpm and 403Nm at 1500rpm, and is paired exclusively with a six-speed manual driving all four wheels.
