Nissan is preparing a couple of surprises for its Navara pickup truck. The upcoming 2022 Nissan Navara PRO-4X will be the best one yet. It is an off-road variant that is a very popular model in Australia. You can get the same variant in the U.S. where Navara is available as the Frontier model. New PRO-4X Warrior is reportedly in the works. This plan is to sell this model globally and to rival the famous Ford Raptor.
The 2022 Navara will possibly introduce some sort of electrification as well. However, this is just a rumor at the moment. Besides Raptor, Navara PRO-4X will rival the Toyota HiLux Rugged X variant as well. The sales will begin in the first quarter of 2022 and here’s everything we know about this model.
2022 Navara PRO-4X Facelift
The all-new 2022 Nissan Navara PRO-4X will soon enter production. We expect the same rugged design once again, with some exciting improvements. For a start, regular Navara pickup will arrive with the same trapezoidal front grille. However, the grille will wear more chrome accents and the bumpers are wider than before.
Exterior features such as headlights and taillights will slightly grow in size. Generally, a new model will look sleeker and more modern. As for the PRO-4X variant, we expect the same updates. However, this version will benefit from a more aggressive styling and new off-road tires. Lastly, Nissan will provide new blacked-out features with beautiful orange treatment.
Interior Will Get More Features
The interior of the 2022 Nissan Navara PRO-4X won’t largely depart from the regular model. This means the PRO-4X will get the same updates as the base version. Again, this off-road package will wear sportier cues and more upright materials. The same 8-inch infotainment touchscreen is available once again, along with the 7-inch digital driver’s display.
We think the build quality is great and most of the interior stuff looks very upright. A new steering wheel is a possibility, along with a new interior color scheme. As we said, Navara could gain a hybrid or all-electric powertrain for 2022MY. If this truly happens, Navara will have to change its underpinnings. That means the interior of the 2022 Navara PRO-4X could provide even more space.
Navara PRO-4X Specs
From what we know, the 2022 Nissan Navara PRO-4X will once again offer the same 2.3-liter diesel engine. This powertrain is capable of producing 210 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Nissan also offers a 2.5-liter gasoline unit as well, and this engine could gain more power. You can find a lot of rumors regarding a new 3.0-liter engine with 300 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque.
Lastly, Nissan is reportedly working on some sort of hybrid and all-electric variants. However, this is another speculation. If this turns to be true, we believe electrified Navara will be more suited for the North American markets where this truck is available as the Frontier model. As before, the PRO-4X version offers a standard four-wheel-drive system, beefier suspension, and smoother electronic rear differential.
2022 Nissan Navara PRO-4X Price, Release Date
Interestingly, Navara costs more than its Frontier sibling. The 2022 Nissan Navara PRO-4X is available for about $10,000 above the base price. This means you can get this impressive off-road version for about $37,000. There are plenty of rumors about the new Navara and we are waiting for Nissan to reveal official details. This pickup truck will hit the dealerships in the first quarter of 2022.
