Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has release the Black Edition enhancements for 2 variants of the Nissan Navara pickup truck i.e. the Navara VL and Navara V.
The Navara Black Edition styling enhancements and premium accessories include a new front grille cladding, door mirror covers and over fenders finished in gloss black. The V variant gets gloss black 17″ alloy wheels while the VL variant retains its black and polished 18″ alloy wheels.
The blacked-out grille, previously exclusive to the flagship PRO-4X, gives the VL and V variants a more sophisticated yet rugged appeal. It is flanked by a set of quad LED projector headlamps with the signature C-shaped LED daytime running lights. The stealthy black theme continues on the sides of the pickup with gloss black door mirror covers paired with 2-tone over fenders and alloy wheels with matching finish.
Further, the VL variant now comes fitted with accessories under the Protection Package. The extra kit includes a fuel tank guard, oil sump guard, kick plate, driving video recorder, door visor and V-KOOL security film tinting. The V variant meanwhile, get the goodies from the Premium Package which includes leather combination seats and V-KOOL security film tinting.
“Ever since the PRO-4X was introduced as part of the Nissan Narava mid-life makeover, the bold yet sophisticated styling of the flagship ‘Mother Trucker’ has been greatly coveted by fans of the Navara. At ETCM, we go the extra mile to delight customers, hence it is my pleasure to launch the new Nissan Navara Black Edition which incorporates the visual cues of the PRO-4X flagship to the popular VL and V variants, complemented by premium accessories for an unbeatable value proposition in the pick-up segment,” said Christopher Tan, the Director of Sales and Marketing at Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd.
The Nissan Navara VL and V variants are powered by the YD25 2.5L 4-cylinder Common Rail Turbo-Diesel engine with output of 190 PS and 450 Nm, and mated to a smooth-shifting 7-speed automatic transmission with manual selection option. To maximise traction in slippery or off-road conditions, the electronically controlled 4WD system with Active Brake Limited Slip Differential manages the torque to all 4 wheels.
In normal driving conditions such as in the city, the Navara easily switches to a more fuel-efficient 2WD mode via the Shift-On-The-Fly control dial. Moreover, the Navara uses multi-link coil springs in the rear suspension, unlike many pickup trucks which use leaf springs, to offer a more comfortable ride for the rear passengers. This however, does not sacrifice on its load-carrying capabilities, and provides an ideal balance of comfort, practicality and off-road performance.
To further recap, the Navara uses the principles of Nissan Intelligent Mobility and is one of the safest trucks in its class. Both VL and V variants are equipped with 6 airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist as standard.
Additionally, the VL and V variants also come with Intelligent Predictive Forward Collision Warning that senses 2 vehicles ahead, Emergency Braking as well as Intelligent Driver Alertness, with the former adding on Intelligent Around View Monitor (360° camera) with Off-Road Mode and Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and High Beam Assist.
The Nissan Navara V is priced at RM134,800 while Navara VL is RM146,900. ETCM is specially offering the Black Edition Accessories free of charge, with an RM800 fuel card and high trade-in offers to customers who purchase and register a new Nissan Navara this month.
