Nissan Navara Pro 4X Warrior 2022 Motoring Minute Review  

We drive the Nissan Warrior on a road test review

 ANDNissan pro 4X Warrior – With Utes becoming more popular, modifying them is also popular. One such vehicle is the Nissan Pro 4X Warrior which is locally modified by Premcar in Melbourne. It recently won an award in the OzRoamer COTY awards.

Nissan Navara Pro 4X Warrior drivingNissan Warriors integrated design provides greatly improved all terrain performance while also enhancing on road ride and handling. Normally those two things are almost mutually exclusive.

The Warrior is also equipped with the Navara’s 2.3-litre four-cylinder twin-turbo-diesel, producing 140kW and 450Nm from as low as 1500rpm. Towing capacity is rated at 3.5 tonnes braked.

The main Warrior features include: Nissan approved front bar with integrated lights, redesigned tow bar, raised suspension and revised damper rates, front bash plate, Cooper AT tyres, improved approach and rampover angle and a bunch of decals to show it’s a warrior.

Having driven many Utes over rough 4WD tracks, I have to say the Warrior is one of the most composed Utes available.

It also comes with a factory backed Nissan warranty and roadside assistance.
