Nissan Navara Np300

The Navara NP300 is the latest in a long line of Nissan Navara branded pick up trucks. It also forms the DNA of many other vehicles which take its architecture and build variations upon it. These include the Nissan Pathfinder (SUV variant), Renault Alaskan and the Mercedes X.
This latest incarnation of the Navara varies most substantially from its predecessors by having a coil-sprung rear end and a twin-turbo Renault master engine.
Negatives thrown at this vehicle have included a droopy rear end when loaded to the max, and the lack of a centre diff making dry tarmac 4x4 driving mechanically undesirable. Ironically the lack of a centre diff gives it an edge in extreme off-road situations compared to other vehicles with a centre diff which can not be locked. In the UK it is a well regarded truck, for its ability to swallow miles and act as a decent compromise between a weekday hauler and weekend lifestyle choice.
