Nissan has announced plans to introduce a limited edition variant of its ever popular Navara D40 4×4 dual cab ute, dubbed the Navara Outlaw.
The limited edition is powered by the same YD25 turbo-diesel engine found in the rest of the D40 Navara range. The 2.5-litre puts out 126kW and 403Nm of torque.
Although there is no gain in performance, the limited edition Outlaw improves on features already found in the ST-X.
“The Navara Outlaw Limited Edition enhances D40’s rugged good looks and provides ute buyers with added value, an even more compelling reason to jump aboard.” said Gavin Corcoran, Nissan’s product marketing manager for SUV and commercial vehicles
It gets 17-inch alloy wheels, upgraded stereo with MP3 compatibility and an auxiliary audio jack, Bluetooth mobile connectivity, Outlaw decal, chrome side steps and bonnet protector as well as an alloy nudge bar and fog lights.
The Outlaw will set you back an additional $2,000 over the ST-X diesel, with prices starting from $47,990 for the six-speed manual and $49,990 for the five-speed automatic.
Nissan has not confirmed how many of the Outlaws will be built, but given that 2007 saw Navara 4×4 sales grow by 27 percent, if you’re after a value packed Navara, now is the time.
Nissan currently holds 22 percent of the total 4×4 ute market.
