Nissan has announced the facelifted Navara will be unveiled on November 5th.
The company is keeping details under wraps, but they released a teaser video which highlights their history of truck production which began in 1935. The clip goes on to say trucks are part of their DNA before showing a teaser image of the new Navara.
While the teaser image isn’t very revealing, photos have shown it will adopt a bolder and more muscular design. That’s clearly visible up front as the Navara features a larger grille which is flanked by distinctive LED headlights.

The truck also sports a redesigned front bumper, pronounced wheel arches and restyled taillights. Buyers will also find a new tailgate with recessed branding.
While the photos show a Frontier, it’s not the same as the redesigned US-spec model which is due next year. Nissan simply uses the Frontier name in a variety of markets, even though they are different pickups.
Getting back to the Navara, it’s expected to use a familiar 2.3-liter turbodiesel engine. In Europe, it has outputs of 161 hp (120 kW / 163 PS) and 313 lb-ft (425 Nm) of torque as well as 187 hp (140 kW / 190 PS) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. Assuming the engine carries over, it could be paired to a six-speed manual as well as a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
Of course, we’ll find out soon enough as the Navara will be introduced next week.
How do you say over 80 years of strength, reliability and ruggedness in a single word: #Navara.
