However, the Japanese carmaker could launch few special trim levels for European buyers. Besides that, the new Nissan Navara can expect facelift and minor changes inside and outside the vehicle.

Since the release of the third generation, Nissan made no big updates on the Navara. The truck had a special version in 2016. At the car show in Frankfurt, we could see EnGuard concept. Nevertheless, this was a one-time appearance.
