Rugged Redefined. Locally-Produced 2021 Nissan Navara Delivers as Promised
The new Nissan Navara is the complete package and is available from June 2021
Orders are now open for the new, locally-produced Nissan Navara, set to roll off of the production line at Nissan’s Rosslyn plant in June 2021. With prices starting at R311 000 for the Navara 2.5 Petrol XE SC, and R474 000 for the Navara 2.5D SE MT DC, the modernised line-up is well-positioned to compete in most of the 1ton pickup segments
The Navara is renowned for its Rugged Redefined looks, robust capabilities, reliability, and versatility, making it one of the most respected and anticipated models across the Nissan line-up and around the world.
Nissan has produced an exciting range of models, ensuring there is a Navara to suit everyone’s needs, whether you are buying to empower your business, or taking your family on an off-road adventure. Priced competitively, the Navara’s innovative technical changes, modernised styling, and high-power specs will impress existing customers and appeal to those looking for a new workhorse or adventure vehicle.
The new Navara single cab 2.5l DDTi Diesel mid-output (XE and SE Grades), with its 2.5 litre dual overhead camshafts with direct injection, turbocharged with intercooler diesel engine producing 120kw of power and 403Nm torque, is already proving to have the most powerful engine in the class, and is a popular choice for South African pickup drivers.
Drivers of the all-new Navara will experience significantly enhanced balance, superb handling, and heightened performance, both on-road, and off the beaten track thanks to the successful combination of a new chassis with revised mountings for less vibration; increased rear height; better shock absorber damping; and a new dual-rate 5-link coil suspension that was designed to ensure a comfortable ride across all of South Africa’s spectacular terrains.
Nissan has reaffirmed that severity-testing of South African roads has been accounted for when fine-tuning the suspension grade, which, Haasbroek iterated, is a big focus for the single and double-cab line-up.
Tough 4X4 power for difficult terrain
Choose 2WD for maximum efficiency, or shift to 4WD (4H) at speeds up to 100km/h with the Navara’s shift-on-the-fly 4×4 gearbox. Achieve maximum performance as Nissan’s 4H constantly monitors conditions and adjusts the balance of power between the front and rear axles to maintain traction, while the Active Brake Limited Slip Differential system (ABLS) manages power delivery and wheel braking between the front and rear axles and between the left and right of the vehicle, depending on traction and speed.
Giving you a bigger and more balanced payload
The new Navara’s payload is now 100kg bigger, thanks to an increase of 36mm in the front, and 64mm in the rear of the height of the load-box. An added step to the rear bumper for the SE Plus and LE grades, and an easy-lift tailgate and a torsion bar on all DC derivatives, also makes loading and unloading easier.
Navara’s Trailer Sway Control (TSC) system, with yaw-rate-monitoring can detect the trailer’s self-oscillation, while the Vehicle Dynamic Control system (VDC) enables it to handle the brake pressure of the trailer to reduce self-oscillation.
A vehicle to delight and empower our customers
The Navara line-up also features additional safety technology through Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM), and offers a host of cabin features including an 8” touch screen with NissanConnect, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay
Bold masculine design, the new Nissan Navara offers customers good value-for-money, has low running costs, competitive parts pricing, and competitive fuel efficiency, strong aftersales service, all designed to help your business’s bottom line, while being rugged and tough enough to do the job right, minimising downtime, and maximising uptime.
