King Cab Introduced To Navara Range

After an absence of 9 years Nissan is bringing back the King Cab to its range of top selling Navaras.

The demand for King Cabs has been increasing as customers gradually move away from the traditional Single Cab ute in order to have additional storage inside the cab or for short trips with extra people.

The new King Cab is available in 2WD, with the option of cab/chassis or wellside configuration. Both are powered by the highly regarded 2.7 litre diesel engine found in other 2WD Navaras.

The Nissan King Cab was a strong seller in the ute range previously and many are still in their original ownership, a testament to their reliability and dependability.

“We have not been able to source King Cabs since a change of model in 1992,” said John Manley, Nissan New Zealand’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “But when it again became available from Japan, we did not hesitate in adding it to our line-up.”

The new King Cab comes with power windows, central locking, and velour seat trim. In the rear there are two ‘jump’ seats, which fold back into the side panels for additional storage space.

The introduction of the King Cab models coincides with a facelift for the whole Navara range.

All models get a new bolder front grille, flanked by new CSR (Complex Surface Reflector) headlamps as found on Nissan’s passenger cars. These new lights provide up to 50% more lighting by having a more controlled beam direction, created by a multi-surfaced reflector directing light through a clear lens. The rear tail lights are also changed for a cleaner appearance and more efficient lighting.

The new King Cab Navaras go on sale in March and are priced at $32,895 for the cab/chassis and $34,595 for the wellside model.
