Just 900 of each. Have you got yours yet?
Nissan Australia has decided to liven up its Navara offerings in the country, with limited-run Silverline and Black Edition models up for grabs starting today. With just 900 of each ute up for grabs, the Navara Silverline and Black Edition offerings are aimed at two ends of the dual-cab market: The Silverline’s sharp $39,490 drive-away price will be those in it for maximum value, while the Black Edition and its $48,690 drive-away price will appeal more to those in it for a posher, but more versatile ute.
We’ll start with the Black Edition. Built off the ST 4x4 grade model, the Black Edition takes choice accessories like an LED light bar, black bullbar, black wheel arch flares, and a black nudge bar and lobs them on as standard. There’s also a soft tonneau cover thrown in for good measure, and 18-inch alloy wheels finished in, you guessed it, black.
Wait, there’s more. There’s also a black front grille, gloss-black mirror caps, black fog-light garnishes, a smoked bonnet protector (might as well be black, really), and black body decals. And inside they’ve really gone to town with… a phone holder.
As it stood, the Navara ST 4x4 was pretty well equipped, so as standard you get LED headlights and LED daytime running lights, a backup camera, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a leather-accented steering wheel. Available in 5-colours, the Black Edition will come as standard with either red of white, while silver, grey, and black (yes, even black) will attract a $550 premium.
*This is still the Black Edition, unfortunately.
The Nissan Navara Silverline at $39,490 drive-away might be a little easier to swallow as a proposition, and throws on goodies to the base SL-grade car. You get 16-inch alloys in place of the standard steelies, you get an alloy sports bar, you get that same phone holder as in the Black Edition, but you get a raft of ‘Silverline’ badges throughout.
This is of course in addition to the Navara SL’s LED headlights and daytime running lights, 5.0-inch infotainment system (non-touchscreen here), reversing camera, and cruise control. The Silverline will be available in red & white (no cost), as well as silver & black ($550 premium).
There are no changes to the running gear though, so both the Navara Silverline and Black Edition will utilise the same 2.3-litre biturbo diesel mill, with 140kW and 450Nm, sent to all-four wheels through either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed auto (which we recommend). Towing capacity remains a pretty usable 3,500kg.
