New 12th generation 2015 Nissan Navara revealed [videos]

Nissan has been building great pickups since 1933 and here is the latest already 12th generation Navara a fully recognisable look, but in a more premium and evolutionary design that is less rugged and more in line with the rest of the Nissan model fleet.

The front end is characterised with the V-motion front grille, plenty of chrome and LED daytime running lights while. Moving to the side we can see turn signals have been incorporated in the new door mirrors and the whole body is more curvaceous.

The biggest update is obviously the interior if you look at the videos and pictures. The materials are in higher quality and everything is more upscale from aluminuim-like touches on the dashboard to a high-resolution TFT display in the instrument cluster, providing turn-by-turn navigation support, radio content, audio track and a fuel economy indicator.

Under the skin updates reveal a new reworked high-strength chassis, updated leaf suspension and changes to the turning circle, which is reduced to make the Navara more maneuverable around city streets.

The engine line-up includes a 4-cylinder, 2.5-litre DOHC diesel engine with two power outputs: 160bhp and 297 lb-ft in the entry level stage and 187bhp and 4332 lb-ft in the more powerful version. Compared to the previous unit, the updated diesel is up to 11 percent more economical than the previous generation.

For petrol fans there is an updated inline-four 2.5-litre engine. No specs were released for this engine, but both can be mated to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic gearbox.

For added safety and better off-road capabilities, the new Navara comes with shift-on-the-fly 4×4 driving, that is backed by assistance systems such as Vehicle Dynamic Control, Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist and Active Brake Limited Slip.

Both the 2-door version and a 4-door models will be offered with UK pricing and final specs to be announced soon.
