Nissan’s new and improved Navara PRO-4X Warrior now comes with all the bells and whistles. But is it worth it?
It’s well-known Australians love utes, but what’s becoming more apparent, is that a fair percentage of Aussies love buying high-end dual cab 4x4 diesel utes, and accessorising them.
It’s commonly estimated that plenty of dual-cab buyers will spend up to $20,000 fitting their new pride and joy with items like bullbars, suspension lift kits, aftermarket wheels, and so on.
This brings us to the Nissan Navara PRO-4X Warrior By Premcar – yes that is its full name. Essentially it takes the trip to the accessory shop out of the equation by fitting all that stuff to the car before it goes on sale in the Nissan dealership.
Mind you, Nissan Australia has had to be a bit clever here. There’s no Navara in the global model line-up that can do this job, so it has contracted local auto design and engineering consultancy Premcar to help out.
Premcar has taken the flagship Navara PRO-4X and added off-road suspension capability and tough truck cosmetics to arrive at the Warrior. It has not touched the engine or part-time dual-range 4x4 system.
While the base truck is built in Thailand, the final Warrior assembly is completed at Premcar’s facility in Northern Melbourne.
