The forthcoming 2023 Nissan Navara should go on sale later this year. The Japanese manufacturer will introduce various changes and updates for sure. While Frontier is mostly sold in the U.S., Navara is a global model. For that reason, some parts of the pickup are different, depending on the market. According to the latest rumors, Nissan will build new Navara in South Africa.
Whatsoever, the brand plans to double the sales of the famous Navara pickup truck. In order to do so, Nissan will have to introduce a lot of refreshments. Hopefully, we will see more significant changes for 2023. That includes improved performance and various styling changes.
2023 Navara Exterior Facelift
While the complete redesign is not on the cards, a new 2023 Nissan Navara will surely introduce plenty of upgrades. There will be three body styles in the offer and Navara will feature the same styling as Nissan Titan. Thanks to that, Navarra will look more modern and upright. The front fascia will host the same trapezoidal grille as before. However, the same grille will feature more chrome accents. LED headlights are a carryover and front bumper will look slightly more aggressive.
The hood won’t be changed and to the sides, Navara will offer new 18-inch wheels. The Japanese automaker will also deliver more aluminum materials so the Navara’s weight should be additionally reduced. Dimensionally, this pickup won’t change and the platform will also remain. Again, the customers can choose between two-door and four-door versions.
The interior of the new 2023 Nissan Navara will continue with a stylish look and a high level of comfort. However, Nissan will try to improve every aspect of the vehicle. Still, the changes are not that significant. The improvements are minor and that includes even better comfort and new tech. The seating layout won’t change and the interior will be practical as before.
If you want a luxurious cabin, entry-level models won’t provide a lot of premium amenities. However, the range-topping trim level is what you need and it offers standard leather upholstery. Nissan will also work on delivering higher safety ratings so you should expect new driver-assistance aids.
New Engine On The Way?
The latest rumors are writing about the new engine for the 2023 Nissan Navara. However, this information is yet to be confirmed. On the other hand, different speculations are suggesting improvements for the existing engine lineup. Both outcomes are very possible to happen in our opinion. This pickup will continue to offer its 2.3-liter diesel and 2.5-liter gasoline engines.
Diesel is producing 210 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque while the diesel could be replaced for a new 3.0-liter with 300 hp. A hybrid variant is unlikely to happen for 2023. Whatsoever, we don’t believe that the Navara pickup will ever feature this sort of powertrain. After all, Navara has been sold globally.
2023 Nissan Navara Price and Release Date
In terms of price, the new 2023 Nissan Navara will cost closer to $30,000. Still, its price should start at around $28,000. Navara will go on sale later this year and its production is currently on the way, in South Africa. If you want Navara in the United States, Nissan offers a famous Frontier model.
