Road Trip Review: 2017 Nissan Navara versus the competitors

After waiting patiently for 14 years for Nissan to release a new Navara, South Africa finally gets to revel in the advancements that such a period of time offers. Nissan claimed that the all-new Navara was a monumental leap in engineering, build quality and refinement over the previous model and most of the press was inclined to agree. We were looking forward to testing the vehicle for ourselves, not on a prepared test route, but rather in a similar set of circumstances that the typical Navara buyer would encounter. Part of our testing was a long-distance journey in the Nissan Navara 2.3D Double Cab 4x4 LE Auto from Johannesburg to the Eastern Cape. Having driven most of the current double cab offerings, we decided to rank them based on a few criteria, comparing the new Navara to the likes of the Ford Ranger, Toyota Hilux, Isuzu KB, Mazda BT-50, Mitsubishi Triton and Fiat Fullback. At the time, we hadn't tested the new Volkswagen Amarok so we excluded it from the comparisons. We were particularly impressed with the low Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) levels and the refinement and power delivery from the twin-turbo 2.3-litre diesel engine that produces an impressive 140kW and 450Nm. The twin-turbo system allows the Navara to develop maximum torque from as low as 1500rpm. The new 5-link rear suspension was another area that suitably impressed us. Utilizing coil springs rather than leaf springs provides the Navara with an SUV-like ride but manages to retain the load bearing demands required for a double cab utility.

Nissan Frontier Sentinel Concept Truck

Nissan today unveiled Frontier Sentinel, a concept pickup truck designed by Nissan Brazil's styling studio, at the 2018 São Paulo Motor Show. The concept is designed for rescue missions in all types of Brazilian terrain. Frontier Sentinel integrates a host of innovative features, including two battery packs from the Nissan LEAF to deliver auxiliary power. The cargo bed has been adjusted to accommodate the battery packs and also features a set of drawers to store gloves, flashlights, helmets, ropes, axes, toolboxes and other equipment. The top part of the cargo bed has a deployable platform from which a drone can take off and land. A strengthened roll bar stretches across the sides of the cargo bed, which features more space to store rescue equipment and two power outlets. The Brazilian hyacinth macaw, a parrot native to central and eastern South America, served as inspiration for the color: Thunder-Blue. Frontier Sentinel also stands out for its snorkel, which lets it navigate deep-water crossings, and a special lighting system on top of the windshield. Inside, the truck has an Electric-Yellow dashboard and central console. Inspired by electric circuits, it's the same shade of yellow as on the seat trim and stitches.

Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept is intergalactic planetary

Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept is intergalactic planetary Nissan has revealed the Navara Dark Sky Concept - a highly modified version of its Navara pick-up designed to transport astronomers to remote locations to observe the night sky. The automaker and the European Space Agency team up to create a cool mobile observatory with an ultra-powerful telescope. When it comes to otherworldly cool and high-tech Nissan products, you'd be forgiven for first thinking of models such as the , or perhaps the company's . Nissan's pickup trucks? They're fine and all, but they'd be a few rungs further down the list. One thing that trucks are really good for, however, is towing whatever cool and high-tech toys you have lying around. In the case of the European Space Agency, they just so happened to have a new mobile astronomy lab that needed toting. And while it undoubtedly took more than a few emails and blank checks, Nissan has come up with what looks to be an ideal solution -- the Navara Dark Sky Concept. Unveiled Wednesday at the , an annual truck-centric expo in Germany, the Dark Sky Concept is based on the production Navara pickup -- a midsize truck sold overseas that's similar North America's long-serving . But this isn't just a simple graphic wrap job on a stock truck with a tow hitch. No, the Navara Dark Sky has been given a surprisingly thoughtful and thorough makeover by Nissan's UK design studio to make sure it's the right rig for dragging a custom trailer housing an ultra-high-power PlaneWave telescope. Since pitch-black surroundings are pivotal for optimal telescope viewing, Nissan reasons that an off-road-minded truck like the Navara is just the thing for going well off the grid, where it can tow this astronomy gear far away from compromising light pollution. Fair enough. But a set of gnarlier tires fitted to custom wheels and details like an integrated winch and light bar are just the beginning of the modifications for star-chasing duty. Nissan's butch-looking Navara is related -- but not identical -- to America's Frontier. Nissan For starters, the Japanese automaker has taken steps to curb the truck's own light pollution. Both the truck and trailer can be operated employing exclusively red lighting, since that color of illumination is said to be least disruptive to night vision. Furthermore, reflective orange trim has been stitched onto the seats to help with cabin visibility without adding any light sources. More interestingly, Nissan Design Europe, the Japanese automaker's London-based studio, has also found a novel way to leverage , the company's adaptive cruise-control and lane-centering tech that is spreading like kudzu throughout the company's passenger-car lineup. For the Dark Sky Concept, Nissan engineers have added new hardware and adapted the truck's existing radar sensors and onboard cameras to perform new tasks. You're looking at a temperature-controlled interstellar observatory in a box. Nissan New functions include a tow-hitch alignment feature, an augmented blind-spot warning system that keeps the trailer's footprint in mind, and a special mode that uses the cameras and radar to scan the surrounding terrain to help seek out proper, stable parking for the trailer. (We wouldn't be surprised to see at least some of those features make their way into a production Navara). A truck like this wouldn't be complete without a unique look, and according to Nissan's official press release announcing the project, the exteriors of the Navara Dark Sky Concept and its trick matching trailer feature "nebula motifs using parametric patterning, and the interior brings together the deep hues of the night sky with the orange shades of a setting sun." A PlanetWave ultra-high-power telescope deploys out of the custom trailer to train its gaze on the stars. Nissan While the truck itself is cool, its double-axle off-road trailer may be even cooler. The custom-made trailer houses the observatory-grade telescope in a "special refrigerated atmosphere" to ensure the sensitive equipment stays thermally stable and properly calibrated. Like the truck itself, the trailer has an Leaf EV battery pack to power it, and the enclosure features a roof that opens to send the PlanetWave telescope's gaze skyward. The battery pack also helps power a special laptop station, UHF transmitter for data relaying and a Wi-Fi hotspot. According to Nissan, the PlanetWave features a 40-centimeter primary mirror, large enough to seek out distant galaxies and get up close and personal with the detailing on Saturn's rings.

NEW 2019 Nissan Navara - Exterior & Interior

We’re still waiting for a replacement for the aging Nissan Frontier. In the meantime, Nissan continues to taunt us from abroad with the similarly sized Navara pickup truck. Now, the automaker has given us even more to drool over with the Navara EnGuard rescue concept that debuted at the Hanover Motor Show.

The specially outfitted pickup boasts a number of unique upgrades, including a portable battery pack to power first responder equipment, drone launch pad, 360-degree lighting rig, winch, and more. The concept is based on the Double Cab Tekna version of the Navara, and was designed to showcase the truck’s potential as a rescue vehicle platform.

The Navara EnGuard utilizes prototype battery packs developed from the Nissan Leaf EV’s battery technology. Each one houses seven Leaf battery modules in a weather-proof aluminum housing, and is rated at 2 kilowatt-hours. The packs are constantly being charged when docked in the truck’s bed and are ready to supply power to specialty cutting tools, heavy-lifting equipment, or other rescue gear. Two input sockets and five output sockets are included on each battery pack. Nissan says the packs are efficient alternatives to a conventional gas-powered generator.

The bed also features two pull-out trays made of fiberglass. The top tray can be used for storing lighter items like radios, ropes, and axes, while the deeper bottom tray can be used for larger things like an oxygen tank or life preservers. A pop-up screen displays the video feed from the EnGuard’s onboard quadrotor drone, a DJI Phantom 4. The drone can be used to scout ahead to allow rescuers to better evaluate a given situation.

On the roof of the cab is a 360-degree LED lighting system with blue emergency strobe lights. At the front of the truck is a high-powered winch. The Navara EnGuard is powered by a 2.3-liter twin-turbo diesel I-4 engine, and uses the same ladder frame chassis as the standard Navara. Additionally, the concept truck is raised by nearly 2 inches and features a fully adjustable suspension with nylon bushings.
