Nissan has bumped up the spec sheet for its Navara ST dual-cab, ahead of the current generation pickup’s expected retirement by early 2015.
Pricing and mechanical features remain unchanged, but Nissan has added a handful of new creatures comforts in the cabin.
Kicking off at $36,990 for the 4x2 manual and topping out at $49,590 for the 4x4 auto (both exclude on-roads), the Navara ST now gets a seven-inch colour touch-screen display, along with a reversing camera, satellite navigation, DVD player, 9.3gb music storage and six-speaker Bose audio with a subwoofer.
Features already standard with the ST dual-cab include 17-inch alloys, an alloy sports bar, dual-zone climate, powered windows and mirrors, and bluetooth phone connectivity.
Power in the ST models is provided by a 2.5 litre four-cylinder diesel, producing 120kW and 403Nm in 4x2 form and 140kW/450Nm with the 4x4.
The Navara is the third-best selling pickup in Australia’s 4x4 market, with 3625 sales to the end of March - although this is down from 6705 for the same period in 2013.
Nissan is expected to reveal an all-new Navara range in the coming weeks that will replace both the D40 and D22 lines currently offered in Australia.
A local launch for the new model is expected to occur either late in 2014 or early next year.
