The 2015 Nissan Navara range will feature 27 unique variants when the new-generation ute hits Australian showrooms from next month.

Nissan Australia today announced full specifications for the ‘NP300’ Navara line-up that replaces the D22 and D40 models, as well as pricing for the dual-cab variants, which will be the first to arrive.

Pricing for the single-cab, king-cab and dual-cab chassis body styles will be announced closer to their introduction in the third quarter of the year.


The 2015 Nissan Navara dual-cab starts at $26,490 plus on-road costs for the entry-level DX 4×2 petrol manual variant and tops out at $54,490 for the ST-X 4WD diesel automatic.

The DX is available exclusively with a 122kW/238Nm 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and with rear-wheel drive. As with all grades, a six-speed manual is the standard transmission, while a seven-speed automatic is a $2500 option.

The other three specification levels (RX, ST and ST-X) are powered by Nissan’s new 2.3-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. The RX gets a single-turbo version with 120kW and 403Nm, while the ST and ST-X get a 140kW/450Nm twin-turbo version. All three are available in 4×2 and 4×4 layouts, the latter coming at a $7000 premium.


All diesel-powered models have a braked towing capacity of 3500kg, while the petrol variants are limited to 1588kg. The Navara’s maximum payload ranges between 880-1112kg depending on the variant.

Standard features across the 2015 Nissan Navara range include auto headlights, cruise control and Bluetooth phone connectivity, along with seven airbags and electronic stability control.

Highlights of the flagship ST-X grade include push-button start, leather-accented seats, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, 7.0-inch touchscreen display with satellite navigation, Bluetooth audio streaming, tilt and slide electric sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels and rear parking sensors, along with active brake limited slip, hill descent control and hill start assist for 4×4 models.
