Japanese Nissan and their long-term partners from Australia, Premcar, have prepared a special version of the Navara pickup truck. The novelty will replenish the line of “charged” modifications of the Warrior.
This was reported by the press service of the manufacturer. Australian fans of reliable and durable Nissan all-terrain vehicles will have at their disposal the new pickup Navara SL Warrior. Due to the fact that the novelty was created with the participation of the company’s specialists, it will retain a full factory warranty. In the model range, the car will take a place one step below the previously “pumped” pickup Navara Pro-4X Warrior. The novelty is addressed to the conquerors of the harsh Australian Outback.
The car is built on the basis of the SL version with a double full-size 5-seater cab. The Navara SL Warrior differs from its counterparts in an upgraded chassis and design. The main challenge facing the Premcar team from Melbourne was to offer customers a car that would be comfortable in everyday use on ordinary roads, able to adequately withstand off-road, but at the same time be more affordable than the Navara Pro-4X Warrior.
Externally, the Navara SL Warrior is distinguished by the presence of a powerful front bumper with a yoke and an additional LED panel. As an option, you can retrofit it with a winch. The engine and transmission are closed from below by a special protective panel painted black.
At the rear there is a towbar that allows you to tow a trailer weighing up to 3.5 tons. In addition, the car received a set of 17-inch alloy wheels, “shod” in Cooper Discoverer All Terrain AT3 off-road tires with a dimension of 272/70, and so that dirt from under the wheels does not splatter the car, plastic wheel arch extensions were installed on the wings, which also perform a protective function.
But the main innovation lies in the modernization of the suspension. The car was raised above the road by an additional 40 mm, which increased the ground clearance to 260 mm. This also had a positive effect on the approach angle, which increased to 36 degrees (+4). The presence of a towbar slightly reduced the departure angle – from 19.8 to 19. In addition, the Premcar suspension is distinguished by reinforced stiffer springs, new shock absorbers and silent blocks, which reduced noise and vibration.
The interior of the novelty was supplemented with easy-to-clean floor mats. From the “stock” Navara SL, the Warrior version inherited an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen display, a combined digital-analog instrument scale with a 7-inch screen, air conditioning, a 6-speaker stereo system, a rear-view camera and a set of USB ports.
Under the hood of the novelty is a bi-turbo 2.3-liter diesel engine with a capacity of 190 hp. and a torque of 450 Nm. All this power is transmitted to all drive wheels through a 6-speed “mechanics” or a 7-band “automatic”.
The Nissan Navara SL Warrior starts at 58,000 Australian dollars ($40,316) with a manual transmission, while the automatic version costs about 2,000 more. For comparison, the new product is 11400 more expensive than the regular Navara SL, 9490 less than the flagship Navara Pro-4X Warrior. At local dealers, the car is expected in August.
