Navara has always been a good 4WD Ute and with the move towards premium models in the segment the pro 4x looks to capitalise on this with enhanced styling.

2021 Nissan Navara PRO 4X profile

PRO 4X exclusive features include

  • Yokohama Geolander all-terrain tyres
  • Black Sports Bar
  • Black Fender flares
  • Black Roof rails – black
  • PRO-4X black alloy wheels
  • Black-painted door mirrors, side steps, grille and door handles and
  • Leather accented PR0 4X seats


Bizarrely the lower spec ST-X has the option of electric heated seats which isn’t available on the top model.

Powered by a 2.3L twin-turbo diesel engine that produces 140kW and 450Nm from as low as 1500rpm driving all four wheels through a part time 4WD system and an optional seven speed AT. It will tow 3500kg and has a payload of a bit over a tonne.

Navara PRO 4X is priced from $60,630 plus the usual costs it’s a little pricey without some of the premium features like heated seats. Navara comes with a 5 year unlimited km warranty.
