The upcoming 2020 Nissan Navara will arrive with some significant changes and upgrades. The Navara model is basically the more popular Nissan Frontier. Navara is a modified pickup for Asian markets, while Frontier is sold all over the world. However, there are a couple of specs that separates those two models.
The main difference is Navara’s diesel engine, and there is even a petrol drivetrain as an option. The exterior design slightly changes, the interior is additionally upgraded while the overall vehicle’s dimensions are the same.
2020 Nissan Navara exterior is modern and stylish
The 2020 Nissan Navara comes with a very modern and eye-pleasing exterior design. The overall weight is slightly reduced, however, the dimensions are the same as before. The front part is refined a lot and new rhomboidal grille is perhaps the biggest change. The headlights are refined and are using LED technology while the fog lights are trapezoidal and boosted with some chrome accents.
The rear is same as on current model and this truck will ride on 16-inch wheels, while 18-inch wheels are standard only on higher trim levels. The overall design is simple but it offers some muscular styling cues.
However, the PRO-4X and Desert Runner models are including off-road equipment such as skid plates and chunky tires, moreover, the crossbars and roof racks are in the offer as well.

The interior of an all-new 2020 Nissan Navara is practical and appealing. The front seats are 10-way power adjustable and the memory setting is there as well. On top of that, the front seats are available with heating and cooling options. The dashboard looks wider with some nice chrome finishes and the dash adds a new 7-inch touchscreen.
The controls layout is very simple and easy to use, and everything inside the 2020 Navara is practical. The rear seats are offering generous legroom and the Crew Cab model is available with a 3-passenger bench that can fit adults with no problem at all. The seats come with cloth materials while higher trim levels are offering leather seats. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, power windows, Bluetooth and AM/FM/CD stereo.
2020 Nissan Navara engine variants
As mentioned, the main difference between the Frontier and Navara models is that the Navara pickup offers a diesel drivetrain. This 2.3-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder engine can produce up to 208 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque. A 2.5-liter petrol engine is also available but is less potent than the diesel option.
There is also a possibility of a gasoline and hybrid engines. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo gasoline unit could make a production and this mill returns 300 HP and 330 lb-ft of torque. All engines are available with a 6-speed manual and 7-speed automatic transmission. When it comes to a hybrid drivetrain, this is still a speculation. It is perhaps too early for such a move, on the other hand, Nissan is a well-known plug-in deployer.
