To keep up with time and competition, current models are more modern and tech-oriented than their predecessors but something other than styling still remains.

The Pro-4X is powered by the same engine that motivates the majority of the Navara line-up; a 2,5-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel that produces 140 kW of power and 450 N.m of torque. This engine can be coupled to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission.

The Pro-4X provides 224 mm of unladen ground clearance and 600 mm of wading depth for those prone to adventuring off of the beaten path.

The new Navara competes with the likes of the Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger and the Isuzu D-Max, but what sets it apart from its peers? A tough design language defines the new Nissan Navara’s market presence, it has an imposing look that sets it apart from the competition.

The PRO-4X provides enhanced styling and a comfortable interior with roomy, wide-bodied cabin space. Nissan has put some nice touches of luxury in the cabin. For example, it features leather-accented seats with unique embroidery, an 8,0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
