Facelifted Nissan Navara Teased, Debuts November 5th

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.
