Nissan’s newest Australian Navara Warrior will be based on the rugged Navara PRO-4X and is a joint design team with Premcar, one of Australia’s leading automotive engineering and manufacturing companies.
Premcar is Nissan’s core partner for its broader Warrior program, with vehicles re-engineered in Victoria to create new flagship models tailor-made for Australia.
Interestingly the new model will be called the Navara PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar.
“Nissan chose Premcar as its core partner to produce the first Navara N-TREK Warrior in 2019, a vehicle we believe set a new benchmark for locally developed dual-cab utes in Australia, and the first of what will soon be several exciting new Warrior models in our line-up,” says Nissan Australian Managing Director, Stephen Lester.
“Australia’s unique landscape is both rugged and exhilarating, and the Warrior program is designed to deliver vehicles that share those attributes, without sacrificing safety, technology or on-road comfort.
“The Navara PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar will continue to build on that legacy, and we can’t wait for our customers to experience it for themselves.”
The Navara Warrior program now has 35 of Premcar’s engineers, manufacturing experts and executives, all of whom approached the new PRO-4X with a single goal: to develop a dual-cab ute perfectly suited to Australian conditions both on- and off-road, without sacrificing comfort or practicality.
“We’re taking all the key improvements made by Nissan on the Navara PRO-4X, like its impressive NVH levels, steering quality, extensive safety equipment and core dual-cab functionality, and we’re overlaying those updates with our own in-house engineering expertise to create the toughest and most capable Navara in the world,” says Premcar Engineering Director, Bernie Quinn.
“We’ve taken everything we learned on the first Warrior, and the feedback we’ve received from customers and the media, to create a tough, capable, and refined vehicle that we think will be unrivalled in the dual-cab ute market in this country.
“Australia is a vast and truly unique place, and so the Warrior’s extensive engineering and testing program was designed to make sure it hits every requirement the Aussie ute owner has.
“That testing is now nearly complete, and that means a new Warrior is coming soon.”
New Navara PRO-4X has a new 7.0-inch Advanced Drive-Assist instrument cluster display, a high-contrast 8.0-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and a leather-accented interior.
We will provide further information on the new Australian Navara Warrior as it comes to hand. Then follow that up with test drives with our thoughts and impressions. Certainly looking forward to this…
