NISSAN has released a special edition of the D23 Navara ST dual-cab called the N-SPORT. Outside, the N-SPORT is treated to 18-inch alloy wheels, black honeycomb grille with ‘smoky chrome’ accent, a sports front skirt just waiting to be ripped off on the first rut, ‘smoky chrome’ fog lamp finishers, gun metallic side steps, gun metallic rear bumper and black sports bar.

The interior gets some improvements over standard ST spec, too, with black-grey contrasting leather seats and sat-nav.

The Navara ST N-SPORT special edition with the six-speed manual transmission is $47,990 drive-away, while the seven-speed auto is $50,490 drive-away. When is Nissan going to get real sporty and fit the VK56 V8 engine?
