Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has unveiled the new Nissan Navara Black Edition which features styling enhancements and extra accessories to the VL and V variants.
The core styling elements of the Navara Black Edition encompass a new front grille cladding, door mirror covers and over fenders finished in gloss black, with the V variant getting gloss black 17-inch alloy wheels while the VL variant retains its black and polished 18-inch alloy wheels.
The blacked-out grille that was previously exclusive to the flagship PRO-4X variant is also offered here, flanked by the Quad-LED Projector Headlamps with C-shaped LED Signature Daytime Running Lights. The black theme continues on the sides with gloss black door mirror covers paired with two-tone over fenders and alloy wheels with matching finish.
On top of that, the VL variant now comes fitted with accessories under the Protection Package which includes a fuel tank guard, oil sump guard, kicking plate, driving video recorder, door visor and V-KOOL security film tinting. The V variant on the other hand receives leather combination seats and V-KOOL security film tinting.
Both the VL and V variants are powered by the YD25 four-cylinder Common Rail Turbo-Diesel engine with an output of 190PS and 450Nm, mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode gear selection option. All that torque is channeled to the four wheels via an electronically controlled 4WD system with Active Brake Limited Slip Differential.
The Navara can also switch to the 2WD mode with just a flick on the handy Shift-On-The-Fly control dial. Unlike many pick-up trucks with leaf spring rear suspension, the Navara utilises a sophisticated Multi-link Coil Springs set up at the rear axle.
Both the VL and V variants are equipped with six airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist as standard.
On top of that, VL and V also come with Intelligent Predictive Forward Collision Warning that senses two vehicles ahead and Emergency Braking as well as Intelligent Driver Alertness, with the former adding on Intelligent Around View Monitor (360° Camera) with Off-Road Mode and Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and High Beam Assist.
The Nissan Navara is priced at RM134,800 (V variant) and RM146,900 (VL variant). Available for viewing and test drive at all Nissan Showrooms nationwide. ETCM is offering the Black Edition Accessories free of charge, RM800 fuel card and high trade-in offers to customers who purchase and register a new Nissan Navara this month!
While the list of Black Edition accessories on the Navara VL is worth RM14,700, the goodies on the V variant is worth RM13,500, in case you’re wondering.
