The Nissan Navara has been in Australia since 1986, introduced as a simple two-door workhorse.
Since then, it – and its range – have expanded; the Navara range now encompasses a single and dual cab ute, as well as a so-called ‘King Cab’. The King Cab incorporates extra space – and seats – behind the traditional single cab area. Current prices range from $25,990 to $56,990 for the Navara RX (4x2) and Navara ST-X (4x4) (LT+SR).
Available with a petrol engine, as well as a diesel engine in two different configurations, the Navara also comes with a choice of six-speed manual and seven-speed automatic and two- or four-wheel drive. The Navara uses the same body-on-frame construction as its competition, but is unique in using coil springs in the rear suspension of select models.
This vehicle is also known as Nissan Frontier (North America), Nissan NP300 (Mexico, Europe).
