Nissan has released pictures and specification of its new NP300 Navara pick-up truck, ahead of its debut at Frankfurt Motor Show.
The truck has increased specification over the previous model, with new engines and an extended warranty period.
The NP300 is now supplied with a five year or 100,000 mile manufacturer warranty.
Optional technology includes Around View Monitor and Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), with other Cruise Control, Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA), as well as keyless entry, rear-view camera and parking sensors.
The NP300 Navara is now fitted with a new 2.3-litre dCi engine, which Nissan claims is 24% more efficient. Available with two power output options, 160ps and 190ps, although fuel economy and emissions are yet to be confirmed.
The new model will launch with the choice of two or four-wheel drive and the option of a standard six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
Payload ratings are now in excess of one tonne across the range with towing capacity of 3,500kg.
In addition, the double cab’s load bed is 67mm longer than the previous model, with a load bed length of 1,578mm. The King Cab’s load bed measures 1,788mm in length.
The Navara platform is also expected to provide the base for a new pick-up by Mercedes-Benz within the next five years.
