Navara and Frontier are flagship trucks. These two share the same platform, but there are also significant changes between them. In 2021 we will see new generations, with fresh styling and an updated engine lineup. The biggest wish is the hybrid truck, but the company is not making such big announcements. The 2021 Nissan Navara will be fresh and interesting, but all the details will be available when the pickup hits the market.
Other sources are claiming the new generation of the pickup is about to happen in 2025. By this time, we will have more electric trucks. On the other hand, that means the 2021 Nissan Navara won’t bring some big changes. The Pro-4X off-road edition is already confirmed. Well, Navara already had a few interesting packages, but this one is going to be the most exciting ever.
2021 Nissan Navara Specs
Changed or not, we expect Nissan to keep the base units for the upcoming Navara. A 2.3-liter turbodiesel is good for 160 hp and 295 lb-ft of twisting power. According to some reports, the company is about to boost both outputs and the truck can gain up to 315 lb-ft. Horsepower rating will reach 200 ponies. The main focus is on the standards that should be in accordance with all the latest requirements. A diesel unit won’t be available for the Frontier, although the mid-size trucks with oil burners are more and more popular.
One of the biggest changes for the new 2021 Nissan Navara might be a fresh power router. A six-speed manual is standard for most markets, while automatic is optional. Engineers will revisit the transmission and make it quicker. A longer ratio is eventually resulting in better mileage.
2021 Nissan Navara Pro-4X
The N-Trek was the off-road truck for the Australian market. Now, it is going to be replaced with the 2021 Nissan Navara Pro-4X. This is big news since the package is making Frontier competitive with the biggest names in the US, such as Chevy Colorado ZR2 and Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. Be sure that Navara Pro-4X is going to steal some fans from Ford Ranger Raptor. Sports bars will increase strength and boost the overall towing capacity. However, most fans think the truck is not going to be a match for the Toyota Hilux Rugged X model. Additional options include a Warrior bundle with a more aggressive appearance and top of the lineup features.
2021 Nissan Navara Release Date
The 2021 Nissan Navara is already announced for some countries, but the company didn’t unveil too many details. Definitely, the ute is the most popular in Australia. However, the release date will also depend of the US sibling, Frontier. Nissan is going to make huge updates in 2021 and 2022, and there is no schedule of arrivals. However, the truck should be among the priorities, since it serves as the base for many other pickups. Renault Alaskan is a new spin-off, while the latest Mitsubishi L200 is also sharing some things with the Navara. Do not forget that the Mercedes X-Class is also a result of cooperation with Nissan. Well, sooner or later the German carmaker will develop its own truck platform.
