Last week, we witnessed the launch of the 2021 Nissan Navara facelift. It's been 6 years since the model first launched, and the facelift is very much a welcome one among pickup truck aficionados.

Exterior - easy on the eyes

Nissan offers 14 (7 single- and 7 double-cab) variants of the Navara in the Land of Smiles, but you're looking at the range-topping Pro-4X 4WD here.

It looks very modern - not too much plastic cladding to give off a 'I'm very tough!' vibe, but just smooth enough to be a truck that you can take on a night out (but please do it post-CMCO).

All variants get these LED head lamps with LED daytime running lights (DRLs) that flank the V-Motion family face the Navara wears. The black front bumper and grille is exclusive to the Pro-4X variant.

The rear has been redesigned a touch as well and now features LED tail lights with a signature pattern.

The Pro-4X variant also gets these 17-inch wheels wrapped in 255/65R17 Yokohoma Geolandar all-terrain tyres. Pretty good tyres, and the SUV-specific one is in our recommended tyres list.

Interior - more creature comforts

The cabin gets the new Nissan family steering wheel, as seen in the the all-new Nissan Almera. There's an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment screen that supports Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and also displays whatever's seen by the 360-degree cameras.

The new Navara is expected to be launched here sometime in 2021 and judging by the stuff it has, expect prices to see a slight increase.
