Nissan Navara

D24 Navara

1 May 2015

Nissan finally updated its Navara line up in May 2015, ditching the two-model arrangement of selling the D22 and D40 models side-by-side and introducing the brand new, Thai-built NP300.

Available in four variants (DX, RX, ST and ST-X), the all-new Navara saw the debut – on its dual-cab 4x4 variants, at least – of a coil-sprung, five-link rear end arrangement.

A pair of new engines also made their debut the 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel YS23 was available in either in a single turbo version that made 120kW and 403Nm, or a twin sequential turbo version that produced 140kW and 450Nm.

Fuel figures varied from a low of 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres on the manual ST-X 4x4, to a high of 9.9L/100km on the single petrol version – a 4x2 DX running the 2.5-litre four-potter seen in X-Trail and other Nissans of the era.

The Navara was offered with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, or a seven-speed automatic sourced from the Y62 Patrol was available for an additional $2500.

Initially available in 14 variants from launch, 27 variants – including 4x2, 4x4, dual-cab, king-cab and cab-chassis – were on offer by the end of 2015. All of the 4x2 variants retained a leaf-sprung rear end.
