Nissan UK reveals Navara Off-Roader AT32
Nissan and Arctic Trucks have teamed up to produce the “most capable Navara ever”, it’s called the Navara Off-Roader AT32 and it’s on-sale in Europe now.
THE NAVARA OFF-ROADER AT32 was revealed overnight at the UK’s The Commercial Vehicle Show and according to Nissan is the “most capable Navara ever”. It’s the first-time Nissan has worked with a partner brand to produce vehicles for European markets – Australia isn’t on the list of destinations.
Standard features include bespoke suspension that increases ride height by 20mm, protection of key underbody components and larger off-road tyres. For the ultimate performance, cost-optional extras include a snorkel to improve wading depth and a front differential locker.
Visually, the biggest change is to the Navara’s suspension, which has been raised to improve off-road performance and create additional ground clearance (up to 243mm from 223mm) throw in bigger tyres and the overall height of the Navara is up by 40mm. Maximum approach angle has been increased to 35° (up from 30.4°), while breakover angle is now 24° (up from 22.2°). Other tweaks include the wheel arch extensions, intended to amplify the new taller stance and offer greater protection of the bodywork during extreme off-roading. Hidden from view are underbody protection plates covering the engine, transmission, propeller and fuel tank.
Fitting a cost-optional snorkel increases the official wading depth from 600mm to 800mm while a front differential lock can also be optioned to work in with the standard rear differential lock.
Alex Smith, Managing Director, Nissan GB, said: “The Nissan Navara OFF-ROADER AT32 is the most capable Navara we’ve ever sold, and the CV Show is the perfect location for its debut. We believe the mix of enhanced off-road ability and upgraded exterior features will appeal to a new audience of both professional and recreational pickup customers.”
