“Building on more than 85 years of Nissan pickup heritage, the new Nissan Navara represents the pinnacle of the company’s experience in building tough and reliable pickups.”
According to him, Nissan is offering the Nigerian market a comprehensive range, starting with double cabin 4×2.
Further elevating the pickups rugged character is the introduction of the range topper PRO-4X grade, a first for the Navara nameplate.

“Purpose built for Africa, boldly styled and technologically advanced, the all-new, all-tough NAVARA PRO-4X is loaded with technology and safety features to keep you and your loved ones connected, safe and comfortable.”
According to the GM, the new Navara is powered by a 2.5L petrol engine that has proven reliable in the Sub-Saharan Africa driving conditions.
