The capable mid-size truck has been one of the most popular models in the segment for years and it should continue in the same way, especially because the current generation is going to receive some updates for the 2019 Nissan Navara model.
The current generation of the truck has been around for some time. It is present on the markets around the world since 2014. The next year should bring several changes, according to the latest reports. It seems there is a complete facelift to come, which will include numerous visual changes, but novelties in other aspects as well.
One of the most important things about 2019 Navara should be a new diesel engine, borrowed from Mercedes. Finally, some tweaks on the inside are possible as well, but the core of interior changes will be in terms of standard equipment. We expect its arrival late in the year.
2019 Nissan Navara changes
This update is about to bring many changes, according to latest reports. It looks like 2019 Nissan Navara is about to get a classic facelift, which usually includes numerous visual changes. This truck shouldn’t be an exception. Of course, the core of the changes will be the front end. In this area, we should see various modifications of the current design language. Some of the parts that could be tweaked are headlights, front fascia, and bumper, grille, hood etc. Other parts of the truck could suffer as well. For example, some reworks of taillights and rear bumper are also possible. Finally, expect some new exterior colors in the offer, as well as some new rims.
Changes on the inside are also possible. Expect to see new color schemes and similar things. Still, the dashboard design should remain basically the same. On the other side, expect a lot of new equipment.
2019 Nissan Navara new features
As we’ve already mentioned, the overall design of the 2019 Nissan Navara’s cabin shouldn’t be changed a lot. The core of the changes will be in terms of equipment. It is expected that each trim level will get something of new standard equipment. In the current 2018-year model, the base version includes things like cruise control, rearview camera, Bluetooth, USB jacks and many other things. However, there is no such thing as a touchscreen in base models, so this should be one of the novelties. Each trim should come with new standard equipment. The company will be gradually adding more and more feature to every higher trim level.
2019 Nissan Navara engines
When it comes to powertrain, there is a big chance to see 2019 Nissan Navara with one big novelty.
According to some reports, the new truck will borrow a diesel engine from Mercedes-Benz. This unit has a displacement of 3.0 liters and delivers around 255 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
Besides this new engine, the rest of the lineup should remain unchanged. There is a familiar 2.5-liter gasoline engine with around 150 horses.
A diesel engine with same displacement and a similar amount of power is also in the offer.
Still, the best deal so far was Renault’s V6 diesel engine. This unit has a displacement of 3.0 liters and delivers around 227 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque.
2019 Nissan Navara release date and price
Considering that there are numerous changes to come, the updated 2019 Nissan Navara should come a little bit earlier than usual, probably in the fall. When it comes to the price, we don’t expect bigger changes, at least when it comes to base models, which go around 25.000 dollars.
This segment is highly competitive and 2019 Nissan Navara will have a lot of rivals. Some of them are Isuzu D-Max, Toyota Hilux, Chevy Colorado etc.
