Car reviews - Nissan - Navara - D40 range


Nissan has tweaked its Navara range to add more appeal against a raft of newcomers

17 Feb 2012

THE one-tonne ute market has been boosted with a rush of new models, making life tougher for older models such as the Nissan Navara. Now seven years old, the Navara 4x4 crew cab has been given a boost with an injection of new features, an upgraded four-cylinder engine and more standard safety gear. The big news is that the potent V6 that was previously limited to the fully-loaded ST-X 550 is now available in the more affordable ST-X. That might not sound like big news, but for people who want to tow, the whopping 550Nm of torque is a big deal.
Model release date: 1 February 2012 to 1 April 2015

Previous model

Navara D40 Series 1

Released: December 2005
Ended: February 2012
Family Tree: Navara

NISSAN launched the D40 Navara all the way back in 2005. It was introduced alongside the ageing no-nonsense D22 Navara, which is still on sale today. The D40 was aimed at the booming group of drivers who wanted a ute to use for work but also lug around the family and use it for weekend fun. It is spacious and practical cabin, with wide opening rear doors and fold-up rear row of seats, was a big selling point as was the rugged, muscular design. A 2.5-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder (128kW and 403Nm) was available, along with a 4.0-litre petrol V6 (198KW and 385Nm) that was later dropped.
