Nissan's Ultimate Go-Anywhere Navara Gets Upgrades for Better Efficiency, Drivability

When Nissan launched a limited-edition, factory-beefed up Navara called the Navara Off-Roader AT32, it was quickly snapped up by European buyers. Well, no worries because building on the success of the previous model, here’s the newest go anywhere Navara: the 2020 Navara Off-Roader AT32.

Once again, Nissan collaborated with Icelandic company Artic Trucks to transform the refreshed Navara into the ultimate off-roader. With that, the Navara Off-Roader AT32 continues to offer full underbody shielding which has been upgraded to a lightweight aluminum material. The improved shape also ensures of a more comprehensive protection of underbody components.

Already a capable off-roader, Artic Trucks concentrated in improving the Navara Off-Roader AT32’s efficiency and on-road dynamics. With that, it gains new 31.6-inch Nokian tires which is said to improve fuel efficiency, emissions, and on-road handling. Meanwhile, the special satin black alloy wheels are fitted with dual valves to allow the fast and accurate adjustment of tire pressure when moving between different terrains.

Other key features carried over from the previous Navara Off-Roader AT32 include all-terrain wheel arch extensions and all-terrain optimized Bilstein performance suspension. The model is also finished off with special badging.

For those who need to venture further, the Navara Off-Roader AT32 can be optioned with an electronic lock for the front differential to boost traction in extreme conditions, while an air intake snorkel increases the Navara’s maximum wading depth to a 800 millimeters.

Despite its off-road prowess, the Navara Off-Roader AT32 keeps the advanced on-board technologies such as Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Intelligent Emergency Braking, and Intelligent Around View Monitor.

Like the previous Navara Off-Roader AT32, sadly, this model is slated for sale only in Europe. Having said that, perhaps this should serve as inspiration for those who are looking to upgrade their Nissan pickup into a true go-anywhere off-roader.
