The Nissan Navara Warrior has sold out and there will be a showroom blackout on the flagship model until the updated version arrives later this year.
“We’re concluded (with the Nissan Navara Warrior) and as far as we’re concerned it’s already been sold out. So any that you might see … in dealers is the last of the inventory,” said Nissan Australia boss Stephen Lester.
Nissan said 1400 examples of the original Navara Warrior utes were built from late 2019.
The vehicles were based on the Nissan Navara N-Trek and fitted locally with hardcore off-road accessories such as wheels, tyres, suspension, lighting, and a hoopless bullbar.
The 2021 Nissan Navara Warrior will be based on the new flagship, renamed Pro-4X.
However, that model will also have a delayed introduction.
The Nissan Navara range will arrive gradually in the coming months, starting with the more affordable models before the most popular ST-X and Pro-4X grades arrive.
The ST-X and Pro-4X versions of the Navara should start arriving in local showrooms in numbers by the middle of this year.
However, the first batch of Pro-4X models – on which Warrior editions will be based – are not due to arrive until July, August or September.
Given this timeline – and the final assembly process in Melbourne where the hardcore offroad accessories are fitted – the 2021 Nissan Navara Warrior will likely be in local showrooms towards the end of the year.
Exact timing, pricing, and specifications for the 2021 Nissan Navara Warrior are yet to be announced. The vehicle itself is also yet to be revealed.
However, it is understood it will share many of the same ingredients that went into the current Nissan Navara Warrior with the Pro-4X upgrades.
Meanwhile, Nissan dealers have been given preliminary prices and specifications for the updated Navara range, the biggest change to the model since 2015. You can read the details we've unearthed so far here.
Drive impressions and other details will be published on Friday once an embargo on further information is lifted.
