It looks like the Nissan Navara N-TREK Warrior isn’t exclusive to the Australian market anymore. The badass version of the Japanese carmaker’s popular pickup offering has just made its debut in Thailand, bringing with it many of the rugged upgrades that made truck lovers ooh and ahh when it first hit the scene late last year.
Just like in Australia, the Thai N-Trek Warrior gets a 40mm increase in ground clearance, new 17-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires, and a more macho look courtesy of chunky new bumpers, a roll bar with brake light, and blacked-out components such as the side steps, side mirrors, and roof rails. A few splashes of orange and some decals also help lend the vehicle a slightly sporty demeanor. Inside, though, the looks is similar to stock units save for some orange fabric on the seats.
The N-Trek Warrior is available as both a 4x4 and a 4x2. Both pack 2.5-liter turbodiesels with different outputs paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. The former does 190hp and 450Nm of torque, while the latter is capable of up to 163hp and 403Nm. If those figures look familiar, it’s because they’re exactly the same as standard Navara units, including those sold in the Philippine market.
Other features worth noting? It comes with a Nissan Connect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay compatibility, as well as a convenient four-camera around-view monitor.
No word on whether or not this beast will ever become available locally. If, however, you want your Navara with a slightly more rugged look over the stock version, perhaps the Navara Black Edition might be worth looking into.
So, what do you think of the N-Trek Warrior? Is this something you’d buy if Nissan Philippines decides to sell it?
