The Nissan Navara is one of the best-known utes on sale in Australia, having been around since the 1980s.
The Japanese brand was offering both a D22 and a slightly larger D40 model for some years before a new-generation Navara was introduced in 2015.
Dubbed NP300 publicly and D23 internally, the new Navara is notable for featuring car-like coil springs on its rear suspension rather than the load-carrying-focused leaf springs traditionally found in workhorse utes.
