Nissan has given its Navara ute range a tweak, introducing changes to the suspension, expanding the availability of automatic variants, and introducing a new mid-spec SL 4x4 variant.

No changes have been made under the bonnet, with the Navara range continuing to offer either a 122kW/238Nm 2.5 litre petrol four cylinder engine in base 4x2 variants, or a pair of 2.3 litre turbo diesel engines, with a 120kW/403Nm single turbo variant, or a 140kW/450Nm twin turbo version for high-grade vehicles.

The newly added SL 4x4 sits between the existing RX and ST specification vehicles, available as a dual cab pick-up with a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission, powered by 140kW/450Nm twin-turbo diesel engine from the ST.

The SL also features the ‘wide-body’ cabin of the ST and comes standard with a reversing camera and NissanConnect smartphone integration, 16-inch steel wheels, and an interior with a durable vinyl floor.

Vinyl flooring has also been specified for RX single cab and dual cab models, taking the place of carpet, while all ST variants have been upgraded with standard satellite navigation and all dual cab models are fitted with a floor-level rear cupholder.

Suspension upgrades include new front and rear shock absorbers, rear coil springs and rear rebound dampers with Nissan claiming that the changes bring improved lateral stability and enhanced handling when loaded, with the changes calibrated as a result of local testing.

High-grade ST-X models also lose the previous standard sunroof, though it can be added as an option, and for the first time the RX 4x4 cab chassis can be ordered with an automatic transmission.
