2023 Nissan Navara SL Warrior Is a Seriuos Rough Truck For Australians

Author: |

With the addition of the new Navara SL Warrior, which is covered by a complete factory warranty, Nissan and Premcar are expanding the Warrior line of products in Australia. The Melbourne-based development team aimed to produce it at a more affordable price range while maintaining the same level of on-road comfort and off-road capability as the Pro-4X Warrior.

Based on the SL dual-cab trim of the AU-spec Nissan Navara, the 2023 Nissan Navara SL Warrior has a number of cosmetic and chassis improvements.

The metal bullbar that protects the front end of the Navara SL Warrior is distinctive since it has integrated LEDs and is compatible with a winch.

Additionally, the profile has Warrior stickers and black underbody armor with the Navara logo. Greater off-road traction is provided by a new set of 17-inch alloy wheels fitted with Cooper Discoverer All Terrain AT3 tires measuring 272/70/R17, with plastic bolt-on fender add-ons covering the extra width and bringing.

A 40 mm elevation in the locally tuned suspension produces 260 mm of ground clearance. The approach angle benefits from this and rises to 36 degrees, but the departure angle remains the same at 19 degrees despite the tow bar's installation.

Premcar put washable all-weather floor mats inside, but the rest of the furniture in the cabin was stock. The Warrior receives the same 8-inch infotainment touchscreen as the Navara SL, a 7-inch analog instrument cluster screen, manual climate control, a six-speaker radio system, a rearview camera, and USB charging connections.

All of the Navaras built to Australian specifications are powered by the factory-installed twin-turbo 2.3-liter diesel engine, which generates 188 HP and 450 Nm of torque. One of two gearboxes—a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic—transmits power to all four wheels. The pickup's towing capability is 3,500 kg.

With a manual transmission, the Nissan Navara SL Warrior costs $58,000 AUD; an automatic transmission costs $60,500 AUD. In August, the truck is anticipated to arrive in Australian dealerships.
