Sounds good (although we’ve already seen the suspension changes in the Australian Series III)!

This would be the midlife update I alluded to in a different topic, suggesting somewhere around 3-5 years to run for this model.

Yep talking to Mitsubishi man yesterday expect new model with their 4wd and Hybrid power plant in 22/23 . Must admit the Barbarian I tried did impress.

Been to see and try the 2020My update today . Actually can live with the new tekna wheels they are not as in your face as the press pics suggest. It certainly stands up more ,so much so Nissan have had to add a strange bar under the backend to bring it within the C&U regulations. The Brakes are certainly a step forward, very noticeable stopping power however never found the present one lacking. The manual is certainly more positive in the changes and the lengthened ratios a godsend. The infotainment system is certainly a step forward .Larger screen with all the options on it . The camera views are crisper and sharper with the rear one having a larger field of view that really helps your confidence that your missing things. All in all I think the whole system is showing longer views. The only thing that seems to have been lost is the rear parking sensors ,not that I will miss the annoying bleeps when reversing trailers. Talking of trailers they all now have trailer sway control which I have advocated for years. The new headlight styling certainly improves the overall impression from the front. Just a quick note the new rear suspension is not the same as the Aussie upgrade however another step forward and certainly drove much the same as my present one over the same surfaces. Hopefully mine will arrive in 2-3 weeks as the only delay is factory diff locking. A bit of a climb down as I said I would never buy another, the problem was the Ford it was up against was 5k dearer although slightly different spec wise (auto) however I keep driving past the local ford dealership with two trannies outside with blown head gaskets which need new heads with that same 2l lump in them.
Just as a heads up Nissan dealers were told yesterday at a private launch for the 2020my that this will be the last change and to expect a completely new truck late 2021/2022 with a CVT transmission in development to match to a hybrid power unit as well as normal engined ones. . Which means the NP 300 is having a relatively short model cycle than the norm.

Good info thanks...

CVT though?! Wow. A huge step backwards there! I won’t be buying any CVT vehicle..... even the Nissan salesman mentioned that it was a godsend that Nissan didn’t put their woeful CVT in the Navara and thankfully it was a “proper” torque converter gearbox.... why on earth are they going backwards. Why not use DCT/DSG or equivalent and go dual clutch or put a proper ZF in it.


Those new wheels are better than the current models laser cut bling. I have mine tucked in my workshop as I bought the black trek alloys as I hated them so much.

I really want the new connect system though, having used it last week.......it’s a huge improvement.

2017 auto Tekna Cayman Blue.. many mods to come!
