If you’re in the market for a Nissan Navara, you’re obviously not someone who craves exclusivity. The mid-size pick-up truck is quite popular and hence ubiquitous in most of the markets it is sold. But now, you can buy a Navara and still brag about its exclusivity to your buddies. The Japanese automaker has launched a special version of Nissan Navara that made its world debut at Brussels Motor Show this week.
Called the Trek-1°, referring to the geographical location of the Navarre desert in northern Spain, which is at -1° of longitude, the special edition truck features black styling bars, LED spot lights, 18in black alloy wheels and load bed divider with cover as standard to keep valuable cargo safe, secure and hidden from view. Optional extras on the Trek-1° include leather seats, which are heated in the front, and with eight-way adjustment on the driver’s side, an electric sunroof, tow bar, differential lock and a full-sized spare wheel.
Two exterior colour options are available, Pearlescent White and Black Metallic. A six-speed manual gearbox comes standard in both the 160bhp and 190bhp versions of the 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, but buyers can spec a seven-speed automatic transmission in the more powerful variant. All three versions come with ‘on-demand’ four-wheel drive as standard.
Since it’s based on the Double Cab trim, the special edition gets a multi-link rear suspension and several safety technologies including Forward Emergency Braking, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist. It also comes equipped with the Nissan Connect infotainment system with satellite navigation and DAB digital radio, 360-degree Around View Monitor, rear parking sensors and LED headlights.
Only 1,500 units will be built, all in Double Cab body style based on the flagship Tekna trim. But before you get all excited, let us tell you that all 1,500 will be sold in Europe. So, at least for the time being the Middle Eastern pick-up buyer will have to look elsewhere for exclusivity.
