2019 Nissan Trucks & SUVs – Video
The Terra, essentially a Navara-based SUV, is positioned between the X-Trail/Rogue compact crossover and Patrol/Armada full-size SUV on the Chinese market, and is competing against the Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Ford Everest, Chevrolet Trailblazer, and Isuzu MU-X. It is offered with three engines with the base option being a 2.5-liter gasoline motor with 180 horsepower (134 kilowatts).
Interestingly, two diesels with an equal power output are also available – a 2.3-liter twin-turbo and a 2.5-liter single-turbo engines, both generating 188 hp (140 kW). A six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic are the only transmissions sold.
Another interesting fact is that, in China, the vehicle is offered in a strictly five-seat configuration, while a slightly longer seven-seat version was launched in the Philippines in late May this year. The Indonesian market also received a seven-seat variant of the SUV in August and, just two weeks later, the model was launched in the same configuration in Thailand as well.
When it comes to half-ton pickups, the action always used to be in front – as in power and torque found under the hood – or in the rear, as in bed size and cargo hauling capability. In recent years, however, equal importance has been focused on the middle. Full-size pickup cabins are often now as fully equipped and indulgent as most luxury vehicle interiors. The Nissan TITAN half-ton pickup is no exception.
Now, for the 2019 model year, TITAN Crew Cab and King Cab models add the “emotion of a live performance” created by the new, segment-exclusive Fender Premium Audio System. The system is standard on TITAN Crew Cab SL, SL Midnight Edition and Platinum Reserve models and optional on Crew Cab and King Cab PRO-4X models.
Every 2019 TITAN is equipped with the advanced 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine, rated at 390 horsepower @ 5,800 rpm and 394 lb-ft of torque. The engine utilizes Nissan’s (Variable Valve Event & Lift) technology, which combines hydraulic-controlled variable valve timing and electronically controlled variable valve lift on the intake side to provide high performance and crisp response. Throttle response is enhanced by directly controlling the intake valve, rather than using the traditional method of controlling intake with a throttle valve, and valve timing and opening with non-variable camshafts.
The upcoming 2019 Nissan Patrol comes with only one engine option. The choice comes down to the 5.6-liter engine that comes with a 7-speed automatic gearbox.
The rear-wheel-drive setup is standard, but you can optionally buy an all-wheel-drive configuration. This V8 unit generates 390 HP and 395 lb-ft of torque.
The Navara Off-Roader AT32 features bespoke suspension that increases ride height by 20mm, full protection of key underbody components and larger off-road tires. For extreme off-road performance, optional extras include a snorkel to improve wading depth and a front differential locker.
Nissan partnered with Arctic Trucks, the highly respected Icelandic company that specializes in building 4WD vehicles to take on the world’s harshest terrains. AT stands for Arctic Trucks and 32 represents the diameter of each off-road tire in inches.
