The Nissan Warrior by Premcar program is set to expand, with the success of Nissan Navara PRO-4X Warrior by Premcar to inspire a new, locally developed model tailor-made for Australian conditions.
PRO-4X Warrior was the second model released through the Warrior program, a successor to the Navara N-Trek Warrior. It proved an instant success, with Premcar building more than 1000 examples in Victoria.
As a result, Navara SL Warrior (pictured below) will be added to the offering while a Nissan Patrol Warrior concept (pictured above) is under study.
The program expansion was confirmed yesterday to Nissan’s dealer network, along with 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 Nissan Australia Managing Director, Adam Paterson.
“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.
“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.”
Acting as a new entry point to the Warrior family, the Navara SL Warrior by Premcar delivers the broad range of on- and off-road capability at a more accessible price point.
Having undergone the same local testing, tuning and validation program as PRO-4X Warrior, SL Warrior will arrive with a more aggressive exterior and enhanced capability. More details will be revealed closer to the vehicle’s launch.
The Patrol Warrior concept vehicle is in development with a series of enhancements being evaluated.
