While North America is patiently waiting for the new Frontier, Europe is getting an updated version of the 2022 Nissan Navara. Besides some small exterior changes, Nissan should introduce a more modern and comfortable cabin. Also, expect more technology through all trim levels and one of the best packages on the market, PRO-4X.
However, unlike US-spec Frontier PRO-4X that comes with plenty of off-roading features, the European model Navara is essentially a styling package. Interestingly, it only does bring off-road tires, but the rest of the changes are purely cosmetically.
2022 Nissan Navara Facelift
The latest 2022 Nissan Navara comes with a more modern appearance. Basically, the manufacturer updated its front fascia with a wider grille and the same attractive C-shaped daytime running lights. Besides, there are some changes underneath the skin, and Navara has beefed up the rear axle, resulting in increased the truck’s payload capacity. Not only that, Navara finally offers greater bed volume as well as a new step built into the rear bumper for easy access.
Generally, one of the most exciting news is a swanky PRO-4X version. This version includes off-road tires, plenty of blacked-out accents, and some orange touches here and there.
Interior Host a New Steering Wheel
The cabin of the 2022 Nissan Navara looks quite familiar. Generally, like the Frontier pickup, the Navara will feature the same layout and technology. Overall, the design inside is modern, and this pickup truck now hosts a new steering wheel and updated instrument panel styling.
Comfort is guaranteed even on the back, and the manufacturer updated seat cushions and backrests for greater passenger comfort. In terms of technology, the new Navara includes the standard 8-inch infotainment system and a 7-inch digital driver’s display with a much higher resolution than before. Also, standard connectivity features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, as well as several USB-C ports.
Like the Frontier pickup truck, the Nissan Navara comes with an extended array of safety features. This model includes forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, trailer-sway control, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring.
2022 Nissan Navara Engine Specs
Under the bonnet, the forthcoming 2022 Nissan Navara offers one engine with two different states of tune. This pickup draws power from a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder diesel mill that generates 158 horses and 297 pound-feet of torque.
However, the next one is much stronger, with an output of 187 ponies and 332 pound-feet of torque. Both models are using the same six-speed automatic transmission and rear- or four-wheel drive.
Release Date and Price
According to Nissan’s officials, the forthcoming 2022 Navara will arrive later this year. Perhaps the most exciting news is that the PRO-4X is available as well, featuring better exterior styling and a much modern cabin than the regular one.
The next-gen Navara is expected to have a starting price of $26,000, which is over $2,000 more than the price of the current Frontier. However, PRO-4X would cost a few thousand dollars more. Hopefully, Nissan will reveal more details in the coming months.
