Nissan has introduced online the next generation of the Navara which as you can see has lost some of its rugged looks as the company went for a more refined styling approach. It will be offered with new paint choices called The Earth Bronze and Savannah Yellow while on the inside it will boast a high-res TFT screen built into the instrument cluster and showing details like radio content, turn-by-turn navigation support, fuel economy indicator and audio track. The cabin benefits from more premium materials and also features faux aluminum accents for a more upscale feel.
From a mechanical point of view, the 2015 Nissan Navara has an updated high-strength chassis as well as a revised leaf suspension. Under the hood there’s a tweaked 2.5-liter four-cylinder DOHC diesel engine with 163 PS and 403 Nm as well as with 190 PS and 450 Nm. Nissan is also offering a 2.5-liter inline-four gasoline motor that has also been updated. These engines are coupled to a standard 6-speed manual gearbox or an optional 7-speed automatic transmission.
Nissan says the Navara’s 4×4 system can be turned on even when the car is in motion while the driver benefits from a wide array of assistance systems such as Active Brake Limited Slip, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control and Vehicle Dynamic Control.
