The Nissan Navara is one of Australia’s best-selling utes, with a name backed by decades of dual-cabs. Nissan’s 2021 update to the Navara sees the brand choosing to focus on a four-variant range comprising the base SL, volume-selling ST and ST-X, and flagship Pro-4X.
A new locally-engineered Warrior is due by the end of the year.
Those familiar with the older Navara will notice the updated car in our Experience Centre has a revised grille, bumper and bonnet; restyled tub and tailgate; new steering wheel and trip computer; stronger rear axle; better brakes; and payload gains
On the safety front, the 2021 Nissan Navara now has active safety features such as autonomous emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. These are two systems we can discuss with you in detail, and even demonstrate in a test drive.
You might have seen this Navara around for a while. The original version of this ute came out in 2014, and this is now the fifth running update.
If you have been driving around in an original D23 series, you will notice that along the way Nissan has also adopted two-stage rear springs to handle loads better, changed the glass for better refinement, added more power steering assistance, and introduced a slicker touchscreen with phone mirroring.
In other words, Nissan has done a lot to make today’s Navara (often its top-selling car in Australia) the most accomplished offering it can be.
Pricing for the Navara changes depending on what deals or stock are available.
At the moment, key deals include $33,890 drive-away for the SL 4×2 cab chassis, $50,990 drive-away for the 4×4 ST dual-cab, $57,290 drive-away for the ST-X 4×4 dual-cab (seen at the Experience Centre), and $61,290 drive-away for the Pro-4X 4×4 dual-cab.
