After four years of production, it looks like Japanese manufacturer is going to update this popular truck, which will come as 2019 Nissan Navara. The current generation is present since 2014. Considering Nissan’s usual production cycle, next year seems like a perfect time to make some changes. After all, this is a highly competitive segment which requires constant updates.
For this occasion, Nissan will introduce plenty of novelties, if we can trust those reports that circle around on the internet. Of course, the focus will be on the facelift. Expect various new styling details, mostly at the front. Also, 2019 Navara will come with plenty of new things inside. Finally, there is a new engine option to come. According to latest reports, there is a new version to come, which will use a new V6 diesel engine from Mercedes. Expect its arrival by the end of the year.
2019 Nissan Navara redesign
Speaking of base design characteristics, 2019 Nissan Navara will probably remain untouched. Still, there is a big facelift to come, according to our reliable source. The new version will come with numerous styling updates. Naturally, most of them will come at the front, where we could see tweaks on areas like front fascia, grille, headlights, bumper etc. Other parts of the truck should come with changes too. Expect few tweaks at the rear end, as well as things like new exterior colors, wheels design etc.
On the insider, the base layout will probably remain the same, although some smaller tweaks on the dahs are quite possible. However, we should see things like new interior schemes, new materials etc. As we mentioned, chassis tweaks are not expected. When it comes to standard equipment, we will see some nice upgrades.
2019 Nissan Navara equipment
It is pretty legal to say that the current year model is already a well-equipped truck. The base Navara comes with numerous standard feature like cruise control, rearview camera, Bluetooth, USB jacks and much more. For the next year, base version will finally get a touchscreen interface, which was probably the biggest shortage of this excellent truck. Higher trims will get new standard features as well. Expect gradual improvement which each version. Besides more equipment, the company will also offer a performance, off-road versions of the truck, which will include various chassis tweaks, such as new suspension, off-road tires, brakes and much more, all in order to improve off-road capabilities. When it comes to engines, we could see some nice addition for the next year.
2019 Nissan Navara engines
As we have just mentioned, the 2019 Nissan Navara will probably come with one nice addition for the next year. It looks like the company will introduce new engine in the lineup. It is a 3.0-liter diesel engine from Mercedes. This six-cylinder unit seems pretty capable. It has a max output of 255 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
The rest of the engine lineup should remain unchanged. There is a familiar 2.5-liter gasoline engine with around 150 horsepower. Still, this truck is offered outside North America, so the focus is on diesel engines. Base models usually come with a four-cylinder unit that is good for about 150 horsepower.
However, an optional 3.0-liter V6 from Renault seems like a better deal. This engine delivers around 227 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque, but it is also very efficient, so you can count on great fuel economy as well.
2019 Nissan Navara release date and price
The 2019 Nissan Navara will come somewhere in the last quarter of the year. We don’t expect changes in price, so base models should go around 25.000 dollars.
