Our onslaught of ute reviews continues with the third version of the D23 Nissan Navara, designed to deal with a few gripes that the buyers had in this otherwise pretty capable UTE.

In this video, Jenny checks out the 2018 Nissan Navara ST-X Dual Cab 4×4 and susses out how it measures up against some of Australia’s most popular selling vehicles.

The engine in this Navara truck is a diesel with 2.3 l of displacement and two turbochargers that gives 140 kW of power and 450 Nm of torque.

There is also a single-turbo option which produces 120 kW and 403 Nm of torque.

The biggest changes to the Navara for 2018 include ride quality and comfort. This is in an attempt to allow it to remain competitive against the HiLux and Ranger.
