The new Nissan Navara PRO-4X has been unveiled by Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd in the run-up to its official launch on 16 April 2021 (you’ll have to wait for the official price to be announced). This “Mother Trucker” carries with it Nissan’s 80-year heritage of pick-up trucks that provide durability, reliability and versatility.
The PRO-4X is a first for the Navara range, and presents a more rugged and stylish appearance, and with smarter features, including Nissan Intelligent Mobility driver assistance features. “The new Nissan Navara PRO-4X is where the best of both worlds intertwined – unbeatable strength and superior intelligence that caters to adventurous Malaysians wanting the next level of design, technology and style,” said Christopher Tan, ETCM Sales and Marketing Director.
The Nissan Navara PRO-4X presents a bolder, more distinct look with its large black ‘Interlock’ front grille, black fender arches, door handles, side mirrors, roof rails and side steps. These are complemented by 17″ wheels, also in black, wrapped in all-terrain tyres. Little bits of magma coloured trim on the fender flares and front bumper give it a pop of colour especially if you had picked the darker exterior paint. Additionally, the Nissan wordmark on the grille, tailgate and wheel caps are also in contrasting red on black.
The Navara PRO-4X is equipped in quad LED projector headlamps, a first for the segment, surrounded by C-shaped daytime running lights. The C-shape is matched at the rear by the LED signature in the tail lamps. Further, the tailgate is integrated with a spoiler and features a torsion bar to assist in easier opening and closing. The rear bumper also incorporates a step in its design for an easier climb to access the flatbed.
To match its rugged go-anywhere, do-anything appearance, this pick-up has a strengthened rear axle and increased truck bed volume to take on the challenge as a workhorse and adventure partner. The Navara PRO-4X’s payload capacity has also been increased to 1.1 tonnes, and the bed comes with a Utili-Track two-channel track system that has four heavy-duty forged aluminium cleats as anchor points for securing loads or cargo.
To pull load, the Navara PRO-4X relies on the 2.5L YD25 turbodiesel engine which provides an output of 190 PS @ 3,600 rpm and 450 Nm @ 2,000 rpm. This power is sent to the wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode. The rated fuel economy is 8.4 litres per 100 km based on the UNECE R101 test cycle. This gives the Navara PRO-4X a theoretical driving range of 950 km from its 80-litre fuel tank. Its physical attributes include a ground clearance of 225 mm and a water wading capability of 600 mm.
The Navara PRO-4X is also fitted with a new electronic locking Rear Differential system that locks both wheels so that they rotate at the same speed and makes it easier to free the truck from loose sand or mud, or when one wheel is off the ground. A new Trailer Sway Assist system also helps to maintain the vehicle driving direction by controlling braking force when the vehicle detects swaying while pulling a trailer. Furthermore, the new Rear Multi-link Suspension with dual-rate coil springs helps reduce body toss regardless of load. In effect, this enhances driving stability and ride comfort. For improved driving feel, the power steering system has been altered to reduce the steering input angle for easier turning and lane changing, as well as reduce effort at low speeds for easier parking.
Assisting the driver is the Nissan Intelligent Mobility suite of safety technology which includes Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist, Intelligent Driver Alertness, Intelligent Predictive Forward Collision Warning & Forward Emergency Braking, Intelligent Around View Monitor with Intelligent Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Moreover, the Around View Monitor is intelligent enough to activate when you switch to 4Lo mode to help you with manouevring around obstacles.
Other features from the Nissan Safety Shield 360 include Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Traction Control, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Active Brake Limited Slip Differential, Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist. It also comes with six SRS airbags.
For the interior, the Navara PRO-4X is fitted with leather upholstery for its Zero-Gravity inspired front seats and rear seats. The rear seats have been improved with new cushion to provide better thigh support and a curved backrest for optimal support. There is also a new rear armrest with built-in cup holders for added convenience. Additionally, there is a total of four USB ports, with one of them a USB-C. Cabin comfort is also helped by the noise isolating acoustic laminated glass of the front windows and windscreen.
For the driver, there is a full colour 7″ high resolution Advanced Drive Assist Display (ADAD) flanked by the tachometer and speedmeter, new sport 3-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel, and an 8″ infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-ready connectivity, and voice recognition.
Four exterior colour choices are available for the Nissan Navara PRO-4X i.e. Stealth Grey (new), Burning Red (new), Pearl White and Black Star.
