Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has launched the new 2023 Nissan Navara Black Edition which introduces a range of Navara Pro4X-inspired styling enhancements and accessories to the popular V and VL variants of the Navara pick-up model range.
The core styling elements of the Navara Black Edition encompass a new front grille cladding (previously only on the PRO-4X), door mirror covers and overfenders finished in gloss black. Elsewhere, the stealthy black theme continues along the flanks with gloss black door mirror covers paired with two-tone over fenders and alloy wheels with matching finish.
