There are a lot of rumors regarding the 2023 Nissan Terrano. This model is not available in the United States, but it is a popular variant in Asia. Reportedly, the 2023 model year could be the last Terrano ever produced. Some reports are suggesting the end of the production, and Nissan India already removed the Terrano model from the official website.
Maybe Terrano won’t reach the Indian dealerships anymore, but it should continue to live in Japan and Russia. Terrano is closely related to Nissan Pathfinder. In Russia, this model is available as Dacia Duster, while in some European counties you can find it as the Mistral model. Without further ado, here’s everything we know about this model.
Nissan Terrano Facelift
The new 2023 Nissan Terrano will provide minor updates, per source. This modern SUV comes with a recognizable design. The front fascia sports a familiar radiator grille and headlights. The Terrano model will reportedly get additional chrome accents on the upper trim levels. The base model will not change dramatically, although new exterior colors are always a possibility.
This SUV will also wear more aluminum materials, so the new model should be lighter than the outgoing one. Again, higher trim levels will gain a power-operated tailgate. Nissan will work on a sporty appearance package, so we expect to see the best Terrano yet.
As for the interior design, the new 2023 Nissan Terrano will continue to offer a modern cabin with plenty of features. Nissan Pathfinder will have a great impact on this model. Thanks to that, we expect to see the same 8-inch touchscreen with updated infotainment.
The comfort should improve as well, but the interior layout will remain unchanged. The manufacturer plans to deliver additional driver-assistance aids and more standard features in general. Still, the upgrades are far from significant. We hope the range-topping trim level will gain even more luxury.
Specs and Transmission
The next 2023 Nissan Terrano could offer the same lineup as the outgoing model. This means the Terrano SUV will ride on a familiar 1.6-liter engine with 130 horsepower. However, Terrano is marketed in different parts of the world. Because of that, some countries will get Terrano SUV with a 1.5-liter diesel engine. This powertrain option provides 110 hp, but the level of torque is significantly higher than with the gasoline variant.
A front-wheel-drive system is standard once again, and both units will come with the same six-speed manual transmission. Nissan will provide an optional automatic gearbox and we also anticipate an optional AWD system. Thanks to optional packages, the Terrano model can be had with a sportier appearance and even an off-road model is rumored.
2023 Nissan Terrano Price and Release Date
The price of the forthcoming 2023 Nissan Terrano is not available yet. The sales should begin later in 2022. However, we heard rumors about the last Terrano ever made. Reportedly, the Japanese carmaker plans to ax this SUV, and this model is already removed from markets in India. This is not official yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
