While its double-cab version was built mainly for pleasure, the Navara King Cab featured some details that transformed it into a much stronger, hard-worker, pickup.
Nissan had over 80 years in building pickup vehicles and that experience can be bought from a shelf. It came with a serious understanding of what people need and want to buy. This is why their engineers didn’t cut corners when they built the NP300 Navara King Cab.
At a glance, some would say that King Cab is a Double Cab with shorter, rear-hinged, small doors. It was just a part of the equation. The Nissan knew that even if the car is used by a team of two, they will need some accessible storage room. Unlike some of their previous pickups, the 2015 Navara showed a better outside design. The market shifted and more European buyers were looking for this kind of vehicle for recreational use.
Inside the cabin, Nissan installed an SUV-like interior with features that could be found on their top sellers’ models such as the Qashqai and X-Trail. The big infotainment unit was offered as an option but it featured a touch-screen display, navigation unit, and premium sound system.
For the technical department, there was one engine fitted with one or two turbochargers and two transmissions available: a 6-speed manual fitted as standard and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission from Mercedes-Benz. For the suspension, the King Cab featured leaf-springs in the back, unlike the Double Cab that was equipped with coil-springs for better comfort.
