KUALA LUMPUR, 7th September 2023 – Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has unveiled the new Nissan Navara Black Edition which introduces styling enhancements and premium accessories to the popular VL and V variants of the Navara pick-up model range.
“Ever since the PRO-4X was introduced as part of the Nissan Narava mid-life makeover, the bold yet sophisticated styling of the flagship ‘Mother Trucker’ has been greatly coveted by fans of the Navara. At ETCM, we go the extra mile to delight customers, hence it is my pleasure to launch the new Nissan Navara Black Edition which incorporates the visual cues of the PRO-4X flagship to the popular VL and V variants, complemented by premium accessories for an unbeatable value proposition in the pick-up segment,” said Christopher Tan, the Director of Sales and Marketing at Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd.
The core styling elements of the Navara Black Edition encompass a new front grille cladding, door mirror covers and over fenders finished in gloss black, with the V variant getting gloss black 17-inch alloy wheels while the VL variant retains its black and polished 18-inch alloy wheels.
The eye-catching blacked-out grille previously exclusive to the flagship PRO-4X raises the appeal of the VL and V variants with a sophisticated yet rugged presence, particularly when it’s flanked by the striking Quad-LED Projector Headlamps with C-shaped LED Signature Daytime Running Lights. The stealthy black theme continues on the sides with gloss black door mirror covers paired with two-tone over fenders and alloy wheels with matching finish.
On top of that, the VL variant now comes fitted with accessories under the Protection Package; the extras include fuel tank guard, oil sump guard, kicking plate, driving video recorder, door visor and V-KOOL security film tinting. The V variant on the other hand receives the goodies of the Premium Package, namely the leather combination seats and V-KOOL security film tinting.
Capable in the wild, accomplished in the city
Both the VL and V variants are powered by the YD25 four-cylinder Common Rail Turbo-Diesel engine with a formidable output of 190PS and 450Nm, this thoroughly-proven engine is mated to a smooth-shifting 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode gear selection option. To maximise traction in slippery or off-road conditions, torque is channelled to all four wheels via an electronically controlled 4WD system with Active Brake Limited Slip Differential.
When navigating city streets, the Navara can easily switch to the more fuel-efficient 2WD mode with just a flick on the handy Shift-On-The-Fly control dial. Unlike many pick-up trucks with leaf spring rear suspension, the Navara utilises a sophisticated Multi-link Coil Springs set up at the rear axle to improve passenger ride comfort without sacrificing load-carrying capabilities, striking that ideal balance between comfortable on- and formidable off-road performance.
Nissan Intelligent Mobility on the Nissan Navara
The high-tech safety features found on the Navara is testament to the principles of Nissan Intelligent Mobility being applied to everyday vehicles, pick-up trucks included. The Nissan Navara is one of the safest trucks in its class; both the VL and V variants are equipped with six airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist as standard.
On top of that, VL and V also come with Intelligent Predictive Forward Collision Warning that senses two vehicles ahead and Emergency Braking as well as Intelligent Driver Alertness, with the former adding on Intelligent Around View Monitor (360° Camera) with Off-Road Mode and Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and High Beam Assist.
The Nissan Navara is priced at RM134,800 (V variant) and RM146,900 (VL variant). Available for viewing and test drive at all Nissan Showrooms nationwide. Adding to the excitement, ETCM is offering the Black Edition Accessories free of charge, RM800 fuel card and high trade-in offers to customers who purchase and register a new Nissan Navara this month!
