Nissan Navara PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar launching September 1

Australia is set to welcome a new Warrior, with the Navara PRO-4X Warrior to arrive in Nissan dealerships nationally from September 1. Development and testing is now complete on the locally developed Navara flagship, and the countdown is now on to the official launch of the Navara PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar.

Nissan Navara Pro 4X Warrior front off road 2Premcar has been Nissan’s core engineering partner since the launch of the lauded Warrior program, with vehicles re-engineered in Victoria to create tough flagship models that are tailor-made for Australian conditions.

That legacy began with the Navara N-TREK Warrior in 2019, and will continue with the launch of the Navara PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar in September — a vehicle that improves on the Warrior formula in every key area, from safety to technology, capability to payload.

Starting at just MSRP $67,4901 for a manual-equipped variant, and $69,9901 for the automatic-equipped variant, the PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar presents incredible value, pairing the safety, technology and comfort enhancements already found in the Navara PRO-4X with a host of engineering upgrades designed specifically for Australia’s unique and rugged landscape.

The result is a vehicle engineered for Australian conditions, whether on the road or off it, and a dual-cab ute designed from the outset to be the toughest Navara in the world.

“The PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar is a true Warrior 2.0, delivering more technology, more capability and more go-anywhere toughness than any Navara before it,” says Premcar Engineering Director, Bernie Quinn.

“We set out to create the most capable Navara ever, and this new Warrior is exactly that.  It’s been engineered from the ground up to tackle the toughest terrain Australia can deliver, all without sacrificing comfort.

“Any new model should be a true evolution, and that’s exactly what we’ve achieved with this Warrior. It benefits from all of our learnings, our customer feedback, and from the improvements made to the Navara PRO-4X, creating a new dual-cab ute that is tailor-made for Australian conditions.

“Now all that’s left is to get people behind the wheel, and that time is almost here.”
