Nissan has unveiled the Navara SL Warrior by Premcar. It’s based on the popular SL 4WD
dual-cab and priced at MSRP $58,000 (manual) or MSRP $60,500 (automatic) and has
increased off-road capability and suspension tuned in Australia for Australian conditions.

Nissan Navara SL Warrior by Premcar enhancements include a new winch-compatible
hooped bullbar with integrated LED lightbar; Cooper Discoverer All Terrain AT3 tyres;
increased suspension lift raising ground clearance from 220m to 260mm; 100kg GVM
upgrade with 3500kg braked towing capacity; new springs, dampers and jounce bumpers;
revised front and rear damping; improved approach angle, from 32 degrees to 36 degrees,
and a departure angle of 19 degrees with tow bar fitted.

Navara SL is powered by a 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine with 140kW at 3750rpm and
450Nm from 1500 to 2500 rpm. It drives through a six-speed manual or seven-speed
automatic transmission.

Developed with Nissan’s local engineering partner Premcar in the firm’s Victorian facility,
the Navara SL Warrior has benefitted from the same exhaustive testing, tuning and
localisation program as the PRO-4X Warrior.

A hallmark of the Warrior program is to broaden the Navara’s capability, rather than simply
shift it to off-road applications. Which is why every change or addition made to the SL
Warrior has been tuned and tested in all driving scenarios to ensure capability doesn’t
come at the expense of on-road comfort.

The Nissan Navara SL Warrior by Premcar has a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty
covering all Nissan and Premcar parts.

The Navara SL Warrior is expected to arrive in Nissan showrooms in August 2022.
