Been away for few days, come back and see there is a major refresh in the wings ahead of the VW launch later this year...

Big news on the engine front is the new 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel developed in cooperation with partner Renault. It makes 170kW (231PS / 228 hp) and peak torque of 550Nm (406 lb-ft) from 1700rpm up to 2500rpm. Nissan says 500Nm (369 lb-ft) is already on tap from 1500rpm.

The 2.5-litre dCi also went to engineering for some extra beef. Power has been upped to 140kW (190 PS / 188 hp) and torque is now 450Nm (332 lb-ft). It delivers an average of 8.5l/100km while C02 emissions are rated at 224 g/km.

Nissan unveils the facelift Navara and Pathfinder at Geneva 2010 and European sales start in April. Sales of models fitted with the V6 diesel only start around June.

V6 Diesel, very tempting.
About time they put a decent sized diesel engine in a duel cab. The old Nav will be 5 years old next year and it might be time to trade it in.

Interesting that 2.5L uses a litre less per 100km, despite more power. Highly optimistic in my view!

Also it would appear that Navara has the Pathfinder 4WD system. The advantage being the ability to have full time 4wd on the tar. So it looks like the VW ute will have some competition...and matches this important feature that the Triton already has.

Will be interesting to see how nissan price the revision.

I really hope I'm wrong with what I'm about to say, but I didn't read anywhere about the Navara getting full time 4WD and I doubt that it will. The option (via the Pathfinder) has always been there but has been ignored, so unless its in print somewhere I won't get my hopes up. I was hoping since Triton have it the next Nav (or facelifted Nav in this case) would follow. If it were the case I'd put my order in today. Its getting to that time for me to upgrade, I was pretty sure I was going to go the Triton path due to mainly of their super select 4WD system, but also because they are starting to address the problem of dual cab owners being treated like second class citizens with better equipment and safety levels than their competitors, and all at a reasonable price. But I have always loved my Nav and would love another so I will wait and see exactly what the new (facelifted) Nav has to offer before making my decision.

Check the modification to the 4WD selector switch on the navara. Would appear to offer full time 4wd. Which stability control as well, would make offroad progress better as well...up to a point!
