You’ve probably heard for famous Nissan Frontier pickup truck. It is a model that is sold across the U.S. markets. Well, the 2020 Nissan Navara is coming to the markets and it is a European and Asian version of Frontier pickup.
Navara is an extremely popular truck, especially in Asia. Unlike the Frontier, Navara model comes with both diesel and petrol engines. The 2020 model will suffer the latest upgrades, but those upgrades are far from significant changes. There are numerous trim levels in the offer, along with different off-road packages.
2020 Nissan Navara will get the most of the updates outside
The forthcoming 2020 Nissan Navara will host some upgrades and most of them will happen from the outside. This pickup truck now comes with a trapezoidal grille that sports horizontal bars. More chrome trims are visible and LED headlights are intact. The front bumper looks bolder and the hood is very stylish. Even the fog lights will get some more chrome work. The side profile reveals 16-inch wheels that are standard.
As before, the 18-inch wheels will be optional. The overall weight is reduced but the dimensions are the same as on the current model. The rear end will remain literally the same.
Desert Runner and PRO-4X models
If you want better off-road performance, try opting for a Desert Runner or even PRO-4X variants. Both models are offering more off-road gear as standard, which includes new tires, skid plates, and roof racks.
2020 Nissan Navara interior changes and safety
The interior will get minor upgrades only. That includes slight design changes and there is more safety equipment in the offer. The interior already looks good and the comfort is guaranteed. The 2020 Nissan Navara offers a driver-oriented cabin with plenty of modern technology systems. The infotainment system is up to date and new infotainment touchscreen is available. The dash will remain, but it already looks stylish. More chrome trims are present, just like from the outside.

The new safety amenities are blind spot monitoring, collision mitigation, and pedestrian detection.
2020 Nissan Navara engine performance
The all-new 2020 Nissan Navara comes with two engine choices. As we already said, the Frontier model will hit the U.S. markets without the diesel powertrain, for now. On the other hand, Navara will benefit from both petrol and diesel engines.
The 2.3-liter diesel engine comes as standard and it delivers 210 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. A 2.5-liter petrol engine will be re-tuned and will generate more power than before. However, the engine specs are not available at the moment.

According to the latest speculations, Nissan plans to utilize a 3.0-liter gasoline engine with the electric motor. The speculated output will generate around 290 horses and over 300 lb-ft of twists. Remember, it is still a speculation, but if it happens, expect astonishing fuel economy figures.
