Nissan recently unveiled the redesigned Navara pickup that will be exclusively made for the South African market. Unfortunately, Nissan announced that the factory in Barcelona would be shut down, which means the Navara will be retired in Europe. Nevertheless, the new pickup will arrive sometime next year, featuring many changes and upgrades. First images are available, and the upcoming 2023 Nissan Navara looks more attractive than ever.
Interestingly, the current generation still holds up pretty well against the rivals in the same class, despite its age. Generally speaking, this model is one of the most attractive, offering excellent ride quality. On top of that, it uses a superb powertrain that delivers excellent output.
2023 Nissan Navara First Look
Many times award-winning pickup truck, the Nissan Navara, is about to gain more upgrades next year. The new model features a ruggedly bolder design, more reliability, and versatility. Overall, Nissan made one of the most respected pickup trucks across the globe. Like before, the new 2023 Nissan Navara utilizes ‘unbreakable’ design language, and it introduces a more attractive front fascia.
Also, it carries the upgrades interlocking frame grille and the all-new, high-tech C-shaped quad-LED projector headlamps. On top of that, the manufacturer equipped this truck with a new rear bumper and an integrated step for ease of access and use for added convenience. In addition, thanks to the redesign, the latest Navara looks unique, providing an overall impression that is distinctly Nissan. Moreover, the PRO-4X is the most favorite option that comes with a black front bumper, black grille, door handles, roof racks, and 17-inch black wheels with all-terrain tires.
On the inside, the new 2023 Nissan Navara features a significantly improved cabin. Thanks to the increased amounts of technology, the latest pickup can easily beat many competitors. On top of that, the cabin is quiet, featuring sound-deadening insulation, lowering stress for both driver and occupants. Additionally, the new model is more driver-oriented this time. It comes standard with improved styling, highlighted with an 8-inch navigation screen.
However, choosing the PRO-4X grade, you’ll get a more distinctive, athletic look with a black Nissan emblem on the seats, and much more amenities.
2023 Nissan Navara Under the Hood
Under the hood, the new 2023 Nissan Navara won’t change for sure. We think that the manufacturer will use the same potent powertrains. That means we can expect once more a diesel engine under the hood. Renault’s well-known 2.3-liter dCi turbodiesel is used and is offered with two outputs. There is a model with either 160 or 190 horsepower.
This model also comes with a gasoline variant in specific markets, consisting of a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit, which delivers 150 horsepower. In addition, depending on the model, you can get Navara with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission.
Release Date and Price
The new 2023 Nissan Navara will bring contemporary design, refreshed interior, and plenty of standard features. This pickup truck should arrive sometime in the last quarter of the following year. Of course, the price will vary, depending on the chosen trim level.
