The new V6 Amarok has raised the bar for pickup drivers targeting maximum kerb appeal. So perhaps it’s not surprising that Nissan has decided to launch a new high-spec pickup, the Navara Trek-1°.
The new model apparently takes its name from the geographical location of the Navarre desert in northern Spain, situated at -1° of longitude – from which the Nissan Navara takes inspiration for its name.
The Trek-1° will be fully loaded with gear, as the specification is based on the range-topping Navara Tekna model, with extra bits added. These include black sport styling bars, with two powerful forward-facing LED spot lamps attached to the top section.
The Navara Trek-1° will also comes with black side styling bars, black 18-inch six-spoke alloy wheels and a smart new load bed cover. Made from high-grade durable plastic and finished in black or white, it’s hinged at the end closest to the cab and lifts easily using a single gas strut at either side.
The Trek-1° is available in two striking exterior colours – Pearlescent White and Black Metallic. Customers who want a six-speed manual gearbox can opt for the 160 PS or 190 PS versions of the 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, while those wanting a seven-speed automatic transmission will get 190 PS. All models will be double cab vehicles.
Only 1,500 Trek-1° pickups will be built. So if you’re keen, it might be time to beat a path to your nearest Nissan dealer and put down your name.
