Nissan has revealed the new range-topping Navara N-Trek Warrior ute ahead of a showroom arrival in December.
The Navara N-Trek Warrior gives Nissan a rival to the Toyota HiLux Rugged X, HSV SportsCat and the Ford Ranger Raptor.
Pricing starts from $62,990 drive-away for the six-speed manual, while the seven-speed automatic starts from $65,490 drive-away. Metallic paint is a $550 option.
Developed with Premcar, the Navara N-Trek Warrior builds on the specification of the ‘standard’ N-Trek variant by adding an all-new suspension set-up, unique bodywork and a new wheel and tyre package for enhanced off-road capability.
New springs, dampers and front jounce bumpers have resulted in a 15mm lift, while the move to 17-inch wheels wrapped in 275 /70 (32.2-inch) Coopers AT3 all-terrain tyres add a further 25mm – for a total 40mm lift.
The extra height takes the ground clearance to 268mm, while the approach angle and departure angle has improved by two degrees and one degree respectively. The track has been boosted to 1600mm front and rear
According to Nissan, the brand has opted for a softer primary spring for ride comfort and off-road articulation, with a higher but more progressive secondary rate to maintain composure and performance – both in cornering, heavy-duty off-roading, when laden and when towing.
The dampers have been upgraded to provide added compression damping on top of the piston for quicker response, while the outer tube diameter is larger with greater oil volume to improve cooling and rough road capability.
Both front and rear dampers have a unique internal valve code tuned by Premcar to match the springs and tyres.
In addition to the suspension lift and all-terrain tyre changes, the N-Trek Warrior gets a hoopless steel bullbar, a 3mm stainless steel front bash plate, an integrated 470mm LED light bar, a unique towbar cross member, matching full-size spare wheel and tyre, and extended plastic guards on the wheel arches.
There are also dark orange accented fog lamp bezels, Navara tailgate decal, N-Trek Warrior side decals, N-Trek Warrior embroidered front headrests and dark orange accented floor mats.
The 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel unit producing 140kW and 450Nm is carried over from the wider Navara range, with the aforementioned six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic sending power to all four wheels.
Braked towing capacity is unchanged at 3500kg, however, the suspension changes have reduced the payload to 724kg.
The Navara N-Trek Warrior is on sale now.
