I’m looking out the window today and I see the rain teeming down in bucketloads. The wind is incredibly strong from the south, and the big eucalypts are hanging over – buffeted and thrown about by the wind squalls. There’s mud everywhere, and the cows are huddled together – their bums towards the wind. This is the sort of weather that the outdoor person loves to engage with confrontationally. The best of them drive a machine designed to cope with the rigours of work and play in the toughest environmental conditions.
Traction in this sort of weather is not always gifted to the driver. That’s why the Nissan Navara D22 hunts the grip down, seizes its footing and forces the ground beneath to work in the driver’s favour. The tenacious hold that the D22 has on the globe is via one of the finest limited slip differentials on the market. The rear axle locks the two wheels accordingly, to work together and access any available traction. A dual-range gearbox ensures that the incredible torque available from the 2.5 litre turbo diesel engine is held at the most advantageous level for the task at hand. Rough terrain requires solid 4×4 performance and this is why the Nissan Navara D22 boasts a class leading 304 Nm of twist. Underneath the body of the D22 are heavy duty steel plates to protect the vehicle’s chassis and all important drive gear from the toughest topography.
Feeding out to stock, loading the deck up with builder’s materials or hauling a load of aggregate on the tray, the tough nature of the Nissan Navara D22 allows hard-working people to get the job done. Solid design at Nissan has ensured that the truck-like D22 ute is as sturdy as they come for carrying heavy loads. A separate ladder-style chassis delivers great strength and rigidity. The interior walls of the side member frames have been reinforced for greater strength and durability.
Inside the Nissan D22 are creature comforts to pamper all occupants, and we reviewed plenty of safety features to protect you in emergencies. Air-conditioning, a CD player, MP3 compatibility, and comfortable and stylish seating are all part of a comprehensive travelling package designed and built by Nissan. The five-seating arrangement in the dual-cab models is spacious, while the three-seater bench seat in the single-cab models have plenty of all-important shoulder room. The ST-R dual-cab Navara D22 boasts bucket seats that give premium comfort and support required by those who have had a hard day’s work or play. The stylish centre console, the classy dash, the roomy glove box and the suave door pockets all provide beauty storage space. A modern interior design and pleasant trimmings look classy and provide a great cabin space to take clients, workmates or family on a trip. For many of you the D22 interior will be your office and it seems, at Nissan, they have cottoned on to this fact, making sure that the Nissan Navara D22’s cabin is the place to be.
Demanding conditions require the best in safety features, and it is obvious that the Nissan Navara D22 leads its class in this area. ABS, dual front airbags, an energy absorbing steering column, a fuel tank roll-over valve, a load sensing valve that allows greater braking force to the back wheels when heavier loads are carried, side intrusion beams and one of the best balanced handling packages found in a ute make the Nissan Navara D22 a superb buy.
So when the weather turns a little nasty, make sure that you have the impressive Nissan Navara D22 parked up your driveway.
