Nissan developing new SUV based on 2015 Navara NP300

Article by Andrew Christian, on July 30, 2014

According to the latest reports, Nissan is currently working on a new SUV based on the 2015 Navara NP300. The new model was confirmed by Nissan Navara Chief Engineer Takashi Fukui and will arrive next year.

Although he didn’t offer too many details, we expect the new SUV to use the new 2.5-liter DOHC in-line 4-cylinder diesel engine that generates 163 hp (120 kW) and 403 Nm (297 lb-ft) of torque, or 190 hp (140 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

A 2.5-liter in-line 4-cylinder petrol engine will also be offered. Both engines come as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, while the seven-speed automatic transmission will be offered as an option.

Regarding the design, we expect the front end to be identical to the Navara NP300, while the rear end will be completely new. More details to be revealed!
