Everybody thinks that tradies that buy utes fall into one of two categories — those that buy a ute for work or those that buy one for lifestyle reasons. There's now a middleground of buyer that wants the look and ruggedness of an entry level work ute, but the ability of a lifestyle weekender that can be bought without spending mega dollars.
Nissan thought that it would capitalise on this emerging trend by introducing the all-new 2017 Nissan Navara SL. It offers the look and ability of a worksite warrior, but counters that with the bells and whistles of a more expensive ute and comes with the ability to go off-road on the weekend.
Priced from $43,990, the Nissan Navara SL is available only as a dual-cab four-wheel drive and sits above the entry-level RX and below the sub-premium ST.
