NISSAN NAVARA REVIEW: http://ow.ly/6JpR309ofke Nissan’s push to return to the top of the pick-up sector begins here with the UK arrival of the new Navara, a much-needed and much-improved entrant into this increasingly competitive segment. The company is rather bullish about its new model, and for good reason, with styling, engineering, efficiency and technology all key reasons why Nissan thinks it can get back to the sector top-spot. Backed by the What Van? Award-winning five-year/100,000-mile warranty, the new pick-up has been designed to combine the durable and reliable requirement of pick-ups with the style and more SUV-orientated driving characteristics in ride and refinement terms that many pick-up buyers look for in a vehicle that needs to perform both weekday work and weekend leisure roles.

Suzuki Philippines finally launches the all-new 2018 Suzuki Swift. Here's everything you need to know.
Nissan Navara EnGuard Concept is ultimate rescue truck Nissan reveals Navara-based emergency rescue concept car at Hannover Motor Show, with portable EV battery power Pick-ups are all about versatility, but Nissan is looking to save lives rather than lug loads with a new Nissan Navara concept. The' EnGuard' emergency rescue concept is has debuted at this year's Hannover Motor Show. Based on a standard double-cab Navara, the EnGuard concept is designed to showcase both the pick-up's all-terrain ability and a new life-saving vehicle platform. With a ride height boosted by 50mm, wider tracks front and rear, adjustable suspension, bespoke bodywork and 285-profile off-road tyres, it's designed to drive across the harshest terrain. An air intake snorkel even lets it wade through deep rivers. But it's not just about mud plugging, as the Navara EnGuard also features a kitted-out loadbay to make it an all-purpose rescue machine. Two pull-out fibreglass trays carry items such as a resuscitation kit, oxygen tanks, life jackets and even a axe. There's a state-of-the-art DJI Phantom rescue drone fitted in as well, which can fly about and relay images to a rescue team. Dominating the load bed are a pair of heavy duty battery packs. The 2kW units feature seven battery modules (straight out of the Nissan Leaf EV) inside a weather-proof aluminium housing. They're designed to act as more efficient generators, operating heavy lifting or specialist cutting equipment, or powering search lights and heat sources. The roof is 136mm higher than a standard Navara, accomodating a 360-degree lighting rig with emergency strobe lights. While the concept is designed purely to showcase new technology, Nissan LCV Vice President Phillippe Guerin-Boutard claims it could have real-world uses in future. "The Navara EnGuard Concept opens a new chapter in the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision, featuring our commitment to zero fatalities and zero emissions. Our prototype EV portable battery pack reveals how Nissan will integrate its world-renowned EV battery technology and expertise into new sectors in the future.” Read More http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/nissan/navara/97148/nissan-navara-enguard-concept-is-ultimate-rescue-truck "interior New 2016 2017 Test Drive Review" "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

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.
