2 Mins read

Nissan’s new dual-cab ute is muscling up. The Japanese brand has confirmed a follow-up act to the brutal Warrior version of its Navara workhorse is just around the corner.

Nissan enlisted the help of Aussie outfit Premcar to help improve the top-spec Navara Pro-4X and turn it into a rugged off-road weapon to take on famous rivals such as the Ford Ranger Raptor and Toyota HiLux Rugged X.

Nissan Australia boss, Stephan Lester, says Premcar helped set a new benchmark in 2019 when it developed the previous-generation Navara N-Trek Warrior.

“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 Mr. 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 Warrior isn’t likely to have any engine upgrades and will make do with the same 2.3-liter twin-turbocharged diesel unit making 140kW and 450Nm and paired to a seven-speed auto driving all four wheels. Most of the upgrades will be focused on turning the Navara into an adventure machine.

Details haven’t been finalized, but pictures show we upgraded suspension and underbody protection for increased off-road capability combined with chunky off-road tires.

The street appeal increased with blocky Pro-4X Warrior decals, a black sports bar, and plenty of black exterior highlights. Premcar head engineer, Bernie Quinn, says the company took what it learned from the first Navara Warrior and applied its homegrown engineering expertise to give the Pro-4X Warrior an Aussie focus.

“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 unrivaled in the dual-cab ute market in this country,” says Quinn.

“It doesn’t just look the part, and the Warrior is the real deal. “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. Nissan and Premcar are in the final stages of testing the Navara Pro-4X Warrior, with full details to be revealed soon.
