Nissan Terra Is A 181HP Body-On-Frame SUV That You Can’t Have In Western Markets

Nissan has always known the perfect recipe for a proper SUV, and they have taken their knowledge and put it into the all-new Terra.

Unveiled a couple of months ago, the Nissan Terra is now on sale, but don’t go searching for it on the brand’s European or North American websites, because it’s a China-only affair for now, with other Asian markets to follow soon.

Built on a ladder-frame chassis, the Nissan Terra is essentially the SUV version of the Navara. It comes with all of the cool features that make the truck a capable machine regardless of road surface, including five-link coil spring rear suspension and rigid-rear axle. It also gets four-wheel drive with locking differential, Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist and others.

Nissan claims that the Terra boasts a “best-in-class ground clearance” of 225mm (8.9in). This, combined with the aforementioned features should make it popular among consumers.

Only one engine option

Powering it is the same 2.5-liter petrol engine of the Navara. It delivers an identical output of 184PS (181hp / 135kW) and 251Nm (185lb-ft) of torque, but it’s unknown what type of transmission channels the power to both axles. Nevertheless, the pickup truck can be had with both manual and automatic gearboxes.

Inside, it can sit five adults, who will notice the upgraded infotainment system, with smartphone connectivity. The new Terra also features improved insulation for a quieter drive, and “a best-in-class loading capacity”, according to Nissan.

The full spec sheet hasn’t been released in English at the time of writing, and navigating through the brand’s Chinese website is tricky. Still, we managed to find out that it comes with a choice of six exterior colors and 18-inch alloy wheels.

The Nissan Terra will sit in the Dongfeng Nissan and Zhengzhou Nissan dealerships locally.
