The 2022 Nissan Navara will still be one of the best trucks in the world. Slightly modified, you can find it in the US as the Frontier. One of the main differences is that truckers from all around the world prefer a diesel engine instead of the gas mill. Navara’s platform is underpinning many other pickups, including all from the big alliance with Renault and Mitsubishi. Even Mercedes X-Class was based on this model.
There is a couple of news headlines about the 2022 Nissan Navara. First of all, the truck is introducing a new version – Pro-4X Warrior. This is going to be the meanest configuration, as well as the most expensive. The bad news – it might not come to Europe. In a matter of fact, Nissan could end the sales in this market after 2022 season. But, this rumor is yet to be confirmed.
2022 Nissan Navara Pro-4X Warrior
Yes, the Warrior concept is finally in production. Well, it is not the same one we saw a few years ago, designed for the bigger Titan truck. But, the 2022 Nissan Navara will wear the armor proudly and become one of the most durable off-road vehicles. Plus, there are Pro-4X features, with impressive upgrades for the ride in the toughest terrains.
Engineers increased the ground clearance. Of course, the pickup also gets special equipment for a smoother drive. Suspension and shocks fit great with a 4×4 system. Rear coil spring rates are increased. All-terrain tires are wrapping wheels. You will also notice a bulbar made of steel, special dampers, and unique underbody protective features.
Under the bonnet of the 2022 Nissan Navara will lay a 2.3-liter twin-turbo diesel engine with four cylinders. That is the same powertrain that’s been serving truckers over the years. Durability and reliability made the turbo-four and Navara one of the most trusted configurations in the world. Total power output is 187 hp (140 kW) and 330 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. The maximum towing capacity is 7,500 pounds. The standard drive is a 2WD. For the Warrior, 4×4 is providing better traction. Buyers can choose between a six-speed manual and a seven-pace automatic gearbox. In some markets, Nissan is going to offer other engines. Different diesel configurations and petrol units are way less popular than a 2.3-liter twin-turbo.
2022 Nissan Navara Competition and Price
The price of the 2022 Nissan Navara stays put. But, the new model becomes one of the most expensive configurations. We already know the pricing for the Australian market. Over there, the Navara Warrior Pro-4X is going to cost $67,500 with a manual transmission (50,000 USD) and automatic gearbox adds $2,500 (1,850 USD). In this range, you can pick some other 4×4 specialists. Ford Ranger FX4 is slightly more affordable. On the other hand, Raptor is still a model to catch up. Around $70,000 truckers can purchase Jeep Gladiator Night Eagle (not available in the US), Toyota Hilux Rugged, Mazda BT-50 Thunder, while W580 edition of the VW Amarok is exceeding this price mark. The base model is available from $30,000 (22,000 USD).
