In many parts of the world, the Navara is a household name among pickup trucks. Known for its great reliability and durability, this mid-size truck is often the first choice of drivers in Australia, Europe, South East Asia etc. On the other side, it is not available in the U.S. market, but this could change either. Some reports suggest that the current Frontier is finally to get some novelties, most like to be the same as the 2019 Nissan Navara. When it comes to design characteristics, we don’t expect to see bigger changes.
The upcoming model is about to continue in the same way, featuring the same aesthetics, interior layout, engines etc. Therefore, we are still waiting for it to come. Depending on the country, it will be hitting the market at a different time during December.
2019 Nissan Navara Design
In terms of design characteristics, there is no place for bigger changes in this case. The 2019 Nissan Navara specs are pretty much the same as for the outgoing model. The only upgrade that company did is in terms of steering. New steering provides a little better driving experience. Other than that, things are largely the same. The 2019 Nissan Navara will come with its familiar appearance, which was originally introduced in 2014. Though many expected a mid-cycle refresh for the upcoming year, things will remain the same. Besides aesthetics, the mechanical aspect of the truck is also about to remain unchanged.
The 2019 Nissan Navara interior is also about to continue in the same way. The cabin of this truck is easy to describe. It features a pretty simple layout, with a pretty straightforward approach. You will notice that Nissan didn’t fool around when designing the dash. It is simple and in a real truck manner. It may feature lots of hard plastics, but the overall quality is actually very good. Like other models in the class, it also comes in both single and double cab layouts. In both cases, front seats are very comfortable, with generous legroom. On the other side, rear seats in two-row models could be a little bit tight for taller passengers. Seats are very supportive and surprisingly massive for a truck, definitely a strong point.
2019 Nissan Navara Engines
Considering that the Navara is available in many parts of the world, a wide offer of engines is not surprising. Of course, the focus is on diesel engines, since Europe and Australia are main markets. The offer starts with a familiar 2.3-liter turbodiesel inline-four, which comes directly from Mercedes-Benz. Base versions deliver around 160 horsepower, but you can also get a twin-turbo version with around 190 hp.
If you are for something more rugged, more appropriate for hard driving conditions, you would probably prefer Nissan’s familiar 2.5-liter diesel unit, which is also good for about 190 horses and also delivers 332 pound-feet of torque.
Also, various reports have been suggesting a new V6 diesel engine from Mercedes-Benz. It would be the same one that powers the X-Class. However, we are still waiting for the official confirmation.
Finally, there is something for those drivers who prefer gasoline. There is a 2.5-liter engine that delivers around 150 horses.
Depending on the engine choice, transmission is either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic.
2019 Nissan Navara USA
When we are talking about 2019 Nissan Navara USA version, you are probably aware of the model’s different nameplate. In this part of the world, the Navara is better known as the Frontier. Still, this model hasn’t been redesigned for more than 13 years. After a generation skip, it looks like it is finally about to be renewed. Of course, it will once again come pretty much the same as the Navara, sharing both mechanics and aesthetics. On the other side, expect a different engine lineup. Count on gasoline engines only. Besides familiar 2.5-liter four-cylinder, we expect to see a V6 engine in the offer as well.
2019 Nissan Navara Release Date and Price
The arrival of this truck is pretty much a matter of weeks. It should come to all markets during December. We don’t expect bigger changes in 2019 Nissan Navara price, so base models should go between 25.000 and 30.000 dollars, depending on the market.
Like in previous years, the 2019 Nissan Navara will have plenty of excellent trucks to compete. The list is long and one of the first models that come to our minds in Toyota Hilux. This is definitely the most famous mid-size truck in the world, known for its amazing durability and reliability, spectacular off-road capabilities, and great overall quality. Other Japanese trucks are amazing as well. One of the Navara’s biggest rivals is Mitsubishi L200, which offers amazing fuel economy. Of course, there is the Isuzu D-Max, as well as models like Chevy Colorado, Ford Ranger and others.
