New 2020 Nissan Navara Off-Roader AT32 unveiled

Nissan Navara Off-Roader AT-32 revealed as a tougher, more off-road-focussed version of the Navara

Nissan has released a tougher, off-road-focused variant of the Navara pick-up truck. Like the old model, it features a handful of chassis and cosmetic upgrades, which Nissan says makes it the most capable version of the Navara to date. It will go on sale during February this year, with prices to be announced closer to the vehicle’s launch.

The Nissan Navara Off-Roader AT32 was developed in tandem with off-road conversion experts Arctic Trucks. Upgrades over the standard Navara pick-up include beefier Bilstein suspension, knobbly off-road tyres, a full aluminium underbody protection panel and an optional electronically locking front differential.

The AT32 retains the same level of off-road technology as the standard Navara pick-up, with hill-start assist, hill descent control, intelligent emergency braking and a 360-degree camera. Buyers in need of further off-road-ability can also spec a wing-mounted intake snorkel as an optional extra, which increases the Navara’s wading depth to 800mm.

Cosmetic revisions for the AT32 include a set of flared wheel arches, fresh side decals and new matte-black twin-valve alloy wheels, which Nissan says allows for more accurate tyre pressure adjustment. Like the old model, it retains the same unique badging for the front wings, side-steps, tailgate and mud-guards.

With a ground clearance of 243mm, the Navara’s maximum approach angle has increased to 35 degrees. The AT32’s new alloy wheels are also shod with 32-inch tyres, which are large enough to run with reduced pressure for improved sand and ice driving. Overall, the vehicle is now 40mm taller.
