Nissan introduces new Navara pickup with 11% improved fuel economy

Nissan introduces new Navara pickup with 11% improved fuel economy

Nissan has introduced the new NP300 Navara pickup truck for global markets. (The Nissan Frontier has been the comparable vehicle variant for the Americas.)

The all-new model achieves lower overall running costs through a combination of improvements in powertrain performance and a reduction in body mass.

The NP300 Navara’s powertrain delivers improved performance, with reduced fuel consumption and emissions, as well as a dynamic control braking system that makes for a leader in segment performance. Engine options have been developed for best in class fuel efficiency and emissions ratings.

Models come equipped with improved versions of Nissan’s 2.5-liter DOHC in-line 4-cylinder diesel engine or 2.5-liter in-line 4-cylinder gasoline engine. The new 2.5-liter DOHC in-line 4-cylinder Diesel engine features maximum power of 140 kW (188 hp) and 120 kW (161 hp) at 3600 rpm, maximum torque of 450 N·m (332 lb-ft) and 403 N·m (297 lb-ft) at 2000 rpm, and higher boost from a turbocharger with electrical actuator. Fuel economy has been improved by as much as 11% over the previous model.

Shift-on-the-fly 4×4 driving can be engaged while the vehicle is in motion. The VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) system helps improve 4×4 driving performance and safety, along with ABLS (Active Brake Limited Slip), HSA (Hill Start Assist) and HDC (Hill Descent Control).

The NP300 Navara’s transmission options include a seven-speed automatic and six-speed manual transmission. The seven-speed automatic provides for low fuel consumption at slow speeds as well as better acceleration, expanded gear ratio for wider range of speeds, and smooth acceleration and shifting. The six-speed manual features enhanced fuel efficiency from low to high gear.

The Nissan NP300 Navara is represented by a wide range of body types and powertrain options according to individual market demands, through narrow- and wide-body type, king and double cab models, as well as all-wheel drive and two-wheel drive types.

Since we built our first pickup in 1933, over 14 million customers around the globe have come to depend on a Nissan pickup to transport their families, workmates and cargo, sometimes in the toughest of circumstances. Nissan pickups are often the lifeblood of their communities, and they need a broader range of abilities than almost any other vehicle. Engineering a good one isn’t easy, but with the NP300 Navara, we’ve added to our accumulated 80 years of Pickup know-how, more comfort, convenience and SUV-inspired features, in order to build a great one.

The dashboard sports multiple easy-to-read dials, plus a large center console with a full array of intuitive features that combine with steering wheel controls to enable easy and safe use while driving. Included are high-resolution color TFT instrument displays with access to compass and turn-by-turn navigation support, fuel economy indicator and audio track and radio content. Customization features provide driver assistance in a variety of languages, as well as alerts, maintenance reminders and more.
