Premier program set to expand for Nissan

The Nissan Warrior by Premcar program is set to expand local manufacturing.

Nissan said the success of the Nissan Navara PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar has prompted a new, locally developed model that is tailor-made for Australia and Australian conditions.

The Nissan Navara PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar was the second model released through the Warrior program — a successor to the Navara N-Trek Warrior — and it has proved a major success, with the Premcar team having now built more than 1000 examples of what it describes as the world’s toughest Navara in Victoria.

The popularity of the Nissan Navara PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar will now see the Warrior program expand, with the Navara SL Warrior to introduce a new entry point to the family. A Nissan Patrol Warrior concept is also under study.

The program expansion was confirmed last week to Nissan’s dealer network, along with the new Qashqai, X-Trail, Pathfinder, and flagship Z performance coupe, as Nissan prepares for one of its biggest six-month periods in its history.

“I’m thrilled to announce the expansion of the Warrior program, developed in collaboration with Premcar, which has proven immensely popular in Australia,” said Adam Paterson, Nissan Australia Managing Director.

“With the Navara SL Warrior by Premcar, a new and more accessible entry point will join the Warrior family, ensuring even more customers can experience the world’s toughest Navara for themselves,” he said.

“The Nissan Patrol is also currently under study by Premcar to further broaden its capability, both on and off the road.

“Our collaboration with Premcar is guided by the development of vehicles that are perfectly suited to Australian customers and conditions.”

Having undergone the same exhaustive local testing, tuning and validation program as the PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar, the SL Warrior — which is based on the SL Navara — will arrive with a more aggressive exterior and the enhanced capability required to earn the Warrior name.

Nissan had promised more details will be revealed closer to the vehicle’s launch.
