The Nissan Pathfinder won’t be the only one representing Nissan in the Geneva Motor Show.
Joining the Pathfinder as the second model to be revealed by Nissan at the Geneva Motor Show will be a facelift version for the Navara pick-up.
Similar to the Pathfinder, the Navara will receive exterior changes, improved engines and an enhanced interior quality. Sales will begin this April.
As with the SUV, the 2011 Navara will also come with at least two engine variants including a new 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine with an output of 230 hp and 550 NM of torque and a 2.5 dCi four cylinder engine with an amount of 190 hp and 450 Nm of torque.
As for exterior changes and modifications are concerned, the Navara will now come with a new bonnet, a revised grille and bumper assembly, a new headlamp design with distinctive projector styling and a new set of 16-inch (steel and alloy) and 17-inch (alloy) wheels. The interior modifications include revised door trims, new seat fabric, the addition of chrome highlights, revised dials and, depending on the model, the availability of Nissan Connect Premium with a new high resolution touch screen.
Nissan UK added a new special editions for the Navara pick-up. Called X-Back, the special edition is priced at £23,795.
The X-BACK offers SUV levels of comfort, refinement and performance while still offering ‘go anywhere, do anything’ qualities. There’s ample room for five plus one of the largest load beds in its class.
The potent 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine punches out 171 PS and an awesome 403Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm, yet it remains economical, achieving 28.8mpg on the combined cycle. And with all that torque it doesn’t hang about between gears either. Drive is transmitted to the road by a tried and tested four-wheel drive system.
On 17 December Nissan will launch special versions of both the Navara Pickup and Patrol 4x4 to commemorate its successful tie-up with the high-profile ‘Long Way Down’ expedition, currently being shown on Sunday evenings on BBC2. Travelling from John o’Groat’s to Cape Town earlier this year, actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman completed their epic 15,000 mile journey on motor bikes, supported for the entire trip by a crew traveling in two Nissan Patrols.
Nissan launched a limited edition Navara to celebrate the launch on the new Bruce Willis movie. The new limited edition is called DIE HARD 4.0 and will go on sale on 2 July at a price of £18,995 + VAT (for the manual version) and £20,095 for the automatic version.
