Navara is one of the best-selling trucks in the world. The Japanese company is a leader in this segment and this is the flagship model. We can see numerous other pickups based on the same platform. For example, Mitsubishi L200, Renault Alaskan, and Mercedes X-Class. Not only that trucks, but also Nissan Patrol SUV is using the same architecture, making it the tough off-road vehicle. The new 2021 Nissan Navara will introduce a lot of changes and all these models will follow its redesign.
The latest rumors are showing an interesting concept. Truckers in the US already heard about the Warrior concept. However, this was a unique package for the Titan XD model, which is significantly larger than the mid-size Frontier and full-size Titan. Still, we couldn’t see the 2021 Nissan Navara N-Trek coming with signs of the Warrior concept.
Under the hood of the 2021 Navara will be more changes. Still, the company is not unveiling too much about it. Can we see radical changes and possible hybrid engine? We will see. At this point, it seems the new generation of Nissan Frontier will rather see this drivetrain. Navara is more popular with diesel engines. But, it is about to change sooner or later.
When Will 2021 Nissan Navara be Available?
According to our sources, the big redesign and the new generation of the truck are on the way. Still, the release date of the fresh model is still unknown. The 2021 Nissan Navara could be redesigned and the fourth series of the pickup could be here in 2024/2025 season. Depending on a level of changes, we will see the pickup sooner or later. But, do not expect it before the second, or even third quarter of 2020. The sales will start as soon as we enter 2021. Australian models could get special versions since this market is one of the largest after the US.
What is 2021 Nissan Navara N-Trek Warrior?
The 2021 Nissan Navara N-Trek is the first special version we know about. The truck will be tuned specially for Australian outskirts. The ute (as they call trucks in this part of the world), will compete off-road specialists, Ford Ranger Raptor and Toyota Hilux Rugged X. The N-Trek is based on the Warrior concept.
The arrival in other parts of the world is not confirmed yet. Nissan Australia exclusively developed the 2021 Nissan Navara N-Trek Warrior for the needs of its buyer. What’s more, most parts are developed and built in this country. Tests solved all obstacles. Well, Aussie outskirts could be very tough, so drivers in Europe, South America, and South Africa can count on serious performance.
Changes to this model include larger dampers and springs. Extended durability and unique setup will allow better response and handling. Bigger and wider wheels are also lighter than before. Finally, the lift kit keeps the 2021 Navara N-Trek at 268 mm (10.5 in). That is nearly an inch more than the ground clearance of the Toyota Hilux Rugged X.
Well, the redesign is going to bring a lot of significant changes, outside and inside. Nissan presented a lot of new concepts recently, most for the SUV range. However, we could see some of these see on the new truck.
A larger V-Motion grille is going to be the highlight of the new 2021 Nissan Navara. Well, it draws the most attention and makes the pickup bigger. Still, the new truck keeps current dimensions. The overall length is 207 inches, but the new model is going to a diet. Aluminum and carbon fiber are now used for most parts. The weight reduction will also lead to better fuel consumption.
The interior and safety will get more upgrades. Truckers can choose different cab and bed configurations. A big touchscreen display is going to be the center of the infotainment system. All details about advanced features and safety won’t be known before the release of the 2021 Nissan Navara.
A couple of diesel engines are the most favorite choices Navara buyers are making. Still, the future of these units is questionable, but we will talk about that when the new generation arrives. In the near future, diesel will remain favorite fuel for truckers in Australia. Also, a 2.5-liter unit could possibly head to the US. Still, this is speculation. Nissan is turning to cleaner sources of power.
The hybrid unit is also a far-fetched story at this moment. We can hear rumors about the development, but we can find speculations regarding other truckmakers as well. However, if this happens, Frontier is going to get it first. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine will probably serve as the base unit. But, there are a lot of questions about it. The major concern is how to keep towing capacity and off-road capability. On the other hand, the Navara hybrid could be based on a diesel unit. A 2.5-liter mill is a reliable, durable, and excellent performer – everything a modern trucker needs.
