Engine updates for Navara

New Euro-6 compliant diesel engine across the range


The Nissan Navara range has been equipped with a new 2.3-litre turbo diesel engine range, just ahead of the September Euro-6 emissions deadline for new LCVs.

The updates to the Navara’s engine not only reduce CO2 output, but improve fuel economy as well. Nissan claims the CO2 emissions outputs, which can be as low as 159g/km depending on specification, are best in class. A significant amount of this improvement has likely come from the standard fitment of a stop-start system.

Like most manufacturers, Nissan has employed a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system to help reduce NOx emissions for Euro-6 compliance, and has added a 17-litre AdBlue tank. Thoughtfully, Nissan has fitted the AdBlue tank filler pipe on the opposite side of the vehicle to the diesel tank filler to avoid confusion and misfuelling. The 17-litre AdBlue capacity should be good for over 7,000 miles before refilling.

Along with the engine enhancements, Nissan has made a few specification upgrades to the Navara range. All models now get cruise control with a speed limiter, Bluetooth audio with steering wheel controls, and a colour information screen in the main instrument panel.

Depending on specification, kerb weight and gross vehicle weight (GVW) have increased by up to 38kg. The one-tonne payload capacity and 3.5-tonne towing capacity remain unchanged with the updates.

The Navara has a four-star rating from Euro NCAP, which is equal to the current Mitsubishi L200. They are the only two pick-ups to be tested under the latest 2015 rating scheme.

All Navara models come with a five-year/100,000-mile warranty.
