Nissan’s latest one-tonne NP300 Navara Pickup Truck The flatbed in the new Navara will carry up to one tonne of cargo. While towing another 3.5 tonnes behind it. It will also drive up a near-30-degree slope over just about any terrain you can aim it at and it has bolted in multi-link rear suspension. The idea is to make the Navara drive less like a truck and more like one of Nissan’s wildly successful crossovers. The modern suspension on the four-door double-cab version, with the coach door-equipped ‘King cab’ (only a sales footnote in Europe, but popular in Asia) sticking with leaf springs. There’s a more serious business case to consider, too. Nissan sold 750,000 vehicles across Europe last year, but just 50,000 of those were ‘commercial vehicles’ – i.e. pick-ups and vans. If Nissan can make the idea of an open-boot SUV more palatable to buyers who don’t have their own building firms, it’d be a massive boost for the company bank balance.
You can have either 158bhp or 187bhp from the grunty 2.3-litre four-pot diesel (the brawnier one has 332lb ft, thanks to two turbos instead of one), but whether you have the six-speed manual or Infiniti-sourced seven-speed automatic, progress is noisy and slow compared to a car, but par for the course for trucks. Inside has much chrome-garnished switchgear, silvery plasti-metal trim and many screens and readouts.
According to Nissan’s data, you’ll go further on a gallon, lugging more cargo, with a Navara than a Mitsubishi L200 or VW Amarok. But the crucial number is price, and the cheapest double-cab model is £23,995 (before you knock off the deductible VAT if bought as a commercial vehicle, not a family runaround). So actually it’s a £20,043 car. For one with an automatic gearbox and some leathery bits around the toys, it’s £28,145.

The Nissan Titan Warrior Concept sports a widened body, six inches in total for the Warrior and the kind of internal bypass reservoir custom-designed shocks that allow for long travel but a plush ride on the road. Other than the custom suspension work required to take advantage of all that travel, like longer prototype front axles, hydraulic bump stops, and full custom upper and lower control arms, the truck is mechanically similar to the Titan XD you can already buy. That means it retains the 5.0-liter Cummins V8 turbo-diesel and the Aisin six-speed automatic transmission.
