Both are cosmetic upgrades offered as a 4x4 dual cab, but each one is based on a different Navara model grade. The Silverline is based on the SL, while the Black Edition is added to the higher-spec ST. “The market has spoken and it wants more accessory options on their favourite Nissan,” said Nissan Australia managing director, Stephen Lester.
“The Navara ST-X N-Sport model was popular, and the recent X-Trail, Pathfinder and 370Z Black Editions have helped build our brand presence and increase vehicle enquiry.” In a similar move to that offered by Toyota with their HiLux special editions Nissan are offering a subtle upgrade option and one that’s more extreme. In this instance, the Silverline is the subtle choice.
To the SL 4x4 dual cab base, the Silverline adds a polished alloy sports bar, ‘Silverline’ tailgate badging and a mobile phone holder inside, while also updating the SL’s standard steel wheels to 16-inch alloys.
Driveline remains unchanged with a 2.3lt twin-turbo diesel engine delivering 140kW and 450Nm, but like the standard Navara SL, the Silverline can be had with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed auto transmission.
Offered in Polar White, Brilliant Silver, Cosmic Black and Burning Red colours, the Navara Silverline is limited to 900 units and is priced from $39,490 drive away ($42,090 w/auto) for private buyers and less for ABN holders.
On the Navara Black Edition, the additions to the ST 4x4 dual cab are more extensive, starting with a black nudge bar, sports bar, wheelarch flares, grille insert, fog lamp surrounds and mirror caps. Complementing all these black add-ons is a set of 18-inch black alloy wheels, while identifying ‘Black Edition’ decals grace each side of the body.
Also included is an LED light bar, smoked bonnet lip protector, soft tonneau cover and protective tubliner, as well as the mobile phone holder added to the Silverline. Offered in the same range of colours as the Silverline, the Black Edition adds a fifth colour choice; Slate Grey.
Like the Silverline, the Navara ST Black Edition is limited to 900 units and will be offered with the same 2.3 twin-turbo engine and choice of auto or manual transmissions, but the ST base means pricing starts from $48,690 drive away ($51,190 w/auto), with the same ABN discounts available.
