2017 Nissan Navara
Known pick-up truck in most markets and perhaps not so famous in USA, will go through small facelift for this model year. 2017 Nissan Navara belongs to D23 Series which started back in 2014, as a 2015 model and 12th generation. In the USA Navara goes by Frontier, but the two are not exactly the same models. Both are adjusted to market’s demand, and Frontier will be covered via separate review. Robust exterior and great towing rates are some of main characteristics of the Navara model, and this trend continues with new 2017 model. However, few new things are expected.
2017 Nissan Navara NEWS and CHANGES
2017 Nissan Navara, like its predecessors come in four trim levels. These include base RX, ST, Titanium, and ST-X. Nissan also offers two cab configurations for Navara’s buyers, including smaller King Cab and the full-size Double cab. Changes which may happen for this model year will be minimal. On the outside, new 2017 Navara will probably come with some new paint options, and new wheel design. Other than this, changes may also include exterior features added, and some equipment package which may influence the exterior design of the new Navara.
On the inside, we could see new interior trim. New color scheme will refresh the interior of the Navara pick-up truck without high costs. Besides that features will, for sure, be upgraded, while some shuffling between the trims will also be part of this minor facelift. Nissan could also decide to add some optional packages or to replace some of the existing ones.
