The updated 2020 Nissan Navara Off-Roader AT32 has been revealed in the UK boasting some tasty bits including 31.6-inch rubber and tweaked Bilstein suspension.
Nissan in Europe has worked with Icealand’s Arctic Truck before and the latest version of the Navara Off-Roader AT32 is probably the best yet – it goes on-sale in February and pricing hasn’t been announced. Did we get dudded on the N-Trek Warrior?
Building on the previous model Navara AT32, the new vehicle gets upgraded underbody shielding (lightweight aluminium), pumped guards, bigger 31.6-inch Nokian tyres fitted with bespoke satin black alloy wheels running dual valves… the idea being that as you’ve got a deflator on one valve you can be pumping nitrogen into the other as it’s less reactive to heat and so the pressures are less likely to change dramatically when you’re running low pressures. But is that really a thing? Should you really be using nitrogen in your 4X4 tyres? We’ll answer that one another day.
Beyond the tyres, the Navara Off-Roader AT32 boasts “optimised Bilstein performance suspension”. The model is also finished off with special badging on the front wings, arch extensions, side steps, wheel centres, tailgate and mud guards, continued from the last updates, Nissan UK said. Extra cost options include a snorkel that raises the wading depth to 800mm (so it’s more than just a raised air intake) and a front electronic diff lock.
The Navara Off-Roader AT32 maintains its active and passive safety features from the N-Guard model it’s based on (Europe’s version of the N-Trek), including Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Intelligent Emergency Braking and Intelligent Around View Monitor.
“The Nissan Navara OFF-ROADER AT32 was a sell-out success and proved incredibly popular with adventurers seeking elegance and toughness,” said Manuel BURDIEL, General Manager Europe, LCV Sales and Business Development.
“We have upgraded the OFF-ROADER AT32 so it can maintain its position as the ultimate Navara while bringing new efficiency and becoming fully WLTP compliant. It’s the perfect blend of in-car technology, comfort and extreme off-road performance.”
Question: Is this a better factory option than the Navara N-Trek Warrior?
