WARRIOR built for all terrains

Nissan has elevated it’s top-of-the-range Navara PRO-4X even further, with the WARRIOR forged in formidable Aussie conditions through vehicle enhancement company Premcar.

Using the popular Narava platform, Premcar has designed, engineered and tested a host of upgrades and enhancements to the PRO-4X utility in Australia, taking the 4×4’s off-road capability to the next level designed specifically for the harshest Aussie conditions.

While at the heart of the beast is the same 2.3-litre twin turbocharged intercooled turbo diesel engine punching out 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque through a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission, the WARRIOR takes care of a suite of other upgrades that most offroad enthusiasts like to perform when purchasing a new 4×4.

But what makes the Nissan Navara PRO-4X WARRIOR truly special, is the fact all of these goodies are covered by the manufacturer’s factory five year warranty! This means that straight off the showroom floor you can rest assured the increased ground clearance of 40mm through a premium suspension upgrade, widened track of 1600mm, increased GVM by 100kg and the retained 3500kg braked towing capacity are completely road legal and tuned for Australian conditions.

While we have touched on the suspension – which includes new front and rear springs, dampers and jounce bumpers, you are also treated to a number of visual additions including WARRIOR specific black cast alloy wheels wrapped in chunky 275/70/17 Cooper Discovery AT3 all-terrain tyres, a redesigned towbar to accommodate a full size spare wheel and tyre, 3mm steel second stage under body protection with NAVARA branding and a very good-looking integrated, hoopless and body-coloured bulbar with a built in lightbar.

On the topic of body colours – the PRO-4X WARRIOR is available in three distinct colourways – Black Star as pictured, a personal favourite – Stealth Grey and the ever popular White Pearl.

No matter what option you choose, all three are paired with striking WARRIOR-specific graphics.

Inside the factory Navara PRO-4X interior has also received a bit of love, with an eight-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support and heated front seating, as well as premium hard-wearing leather seats with WARRIOR embroidered headrests.

You are also well connected inside the cabin, with an 8-inch touchscreen display featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity for seamless smartphone integration, while you can also stream all your favourite audio via Bluetooth with full use of the steering wheel controls.

All your favourite mod-cons are also packed into the utility for ultimate driving convenience, with the Navara PRO-4X WARRIOR utilising Intelligent Key remote keyless entry, high beam assist and cruise control to simplify everyday driving – and while you cannot control the weather outside, the WARRIOR helps you adapt thanks to automatic rain-sensing wipers, a UV and heat-rejecting windscreen and dual zone climate control with rear air vents.

The Navara PRO-4X WARRIOR by Premcar also features a full suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) technologies with off-road innovation to create a 360° safety shield that detects, warns, and intervenes against potential risks, in every driving environment.

So with all these enhancements packed into Nissan’s Navara PRO-4X package, the question is just how does the upgraded WARRIOR perform? And the answer is simple – unreal!

At highway speeds quite often vehicles with upgraded lift kits and big chunky tyres are floaty and noisy – but not the PRO-4X WARRIOR! The Navara is firmly planted on the road and resembles the ride quality of a larger SUV.

The amount of noise – or lack thereof – from the beefier tyres is also impressive, especially given the larger size over the standard PRO-4X.

The wider track width definitely helps keep the utility stick to the road surface, while the steering response is also to be commended.

When launching off highway into the pines the Navara PRO-4X WARRIOR gets even better – and even the newest of off-roaders will feel confident behind the wheel thanks to the increased ground clearance and steel underbody protection keeping everything underneath the utility safely tucked away behind the bashplates.

If you’re in the market for a new utility with all the bells and whistles straight out of the box covered by a factory warranty – look no further than the Navara PRO-4X WARRIOR now on show at OGR Nissan.

So pop down to the dealership at 33-41 Penola Road, Mount Gambier or give Rob Mann a call on 8724 1177 to find out how you can get yourself into the off-road beast for yourself.
