Nissan Launches 2017 Navara Pickup In China

Nissan are making their presence felt in China by launching the Navara locally, which targets not only commercial vehicle customers, but also private owners.

Based on the third-generation pickup truck that debuted in the People’s Republic at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show, it is manufactured in partnership with Zhengzhou Nissan and carries a starting price tag of 139,800 yuan (equal to $20,530).

Customers can choose the Nissan Navara in eight variants, with two- or four-wheel drive, and a choice of three transmissions, with five, six, and seven speeds. Powering it is the 2.5-liter engine that makes 181 horses and a peak torque of 251Nm (185lb-ft).

Nissan have yet to detail each and every grade of the Navara aimed at the Chinese market, but some of its characteristics include the V-motion grille, LED headlights, which are said to be unique to the segment, a spacious interior, and automatic air conditioning.

“The Nissan Navara is a proven success in markets around the world and now is poised to set a new standard for pickups in China,” said Nissan’s Light Commercial Vehicles Senior VP, Ashwani Gupta. “The Navara’s high-end features will guarantee a new, elevated driving experience – both for individual owners and commercial users, alike.”

    I’m confused as to what Nissan’s strategy was with the new Navara. This car has dated so badly, it still adorns Nissan’s old family face and yet it’s only reaching China now. This thing is 3 years old already. Heck, we only got it a month ago here in South Africa seeing one on the road the other day made me think it was an import rather than a new vehicle.

    I really like the looks of the European version, but not this one. It’s amazing how the front number plate placement makes otherwise good looking vehicle, very ugly.

    Is there a typo with the peak torque figure???becos if not mistaken it is supposed to be 450Nm
