Back in 2016, the Nissan manufacturer was testing its all-new SUV which has just, precisely this April, been presented at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show. It is the newest model which is based on the Navara pickup truck called the Terra and it is set to go on sale this spring as the 2018 model year. At first, it will be sold only in China, and after that, we expect sales all over the globe. However, the brand-new Terra hasn’t still joined the market, but the carmaker is announcing the newest version and it is the 2019 Nissan Terra-Navara SUV. However, since it is the all-new model, we sincerely doubt that it should get any major changes except just some upgrades in technology.
The upcoming Nissan Terra is a body-on-frame SUV which shares many similarities with the Navara such as the platform and styling. They will feature the same V-Motion grille and front fascia. The inside of the Terra is also borrowed from the Navara, especially the dashboard. As well, it will have a standard three-row seating which makes it perfect for families and trips. Under the hood, it will very likely use the same engines as the Navara.
Engine and performance of the 2019 Nissan Terra-Navara SUV
Like expected, the 2019 Nissan Terra-Navara SUV will be powered by the same engines found in Navara model and there are several engine options. The one is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine. The second could be a 2.2-liter 4-cylinder DuraTorq diesel and a 2.3-liter turbo diesel unit. Furthermore, the next option could be a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder naturally aspirated engine which will be able to develop 183 horsepower. There will be a choice between a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission. As well, the rear-wheel drive system is standard while the all-wheel drive system with Ford’s Terrain Management will be optional.
Design of exterior and interior
The 2019 Nissan Terra-Navara SUV will be based on the same platform and body-on-frame construction. As well, they will share very similar external appearance. The front end is dominated by the brand’s familiar V-Motion grille with chrome details and massive headlamps with LED daytime running lights. As well, we will notice more chrome accents on the bumper, side mirrors, door handles and on the wheels.
The interior of the 2019 Nissan Terra-Navara SUV will also be similar to the cabin of the Navara model. They also share the similar design of the dashboard with a 7.0-inch touchscreen with infotainment system. It has three rows of seats and it is able to accommodate up to seven passengers. Some of the equipment includes several USB ports, push-button starting, cloth seats, audio system, dual-zone climate control and so on. The higher trims will add leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, and many other more.
Release date and price
The current model should go on sale in following months. However, we still don’t have the information when exactly the 2019 Nissan Terra-Navara SUV should appear on the market. We assume that it should happen sometime during next year. The pricing should remain close to the current which is rumored to be around $35,000.
