The Nissan Navara 2018 Variant Leaked in China?
The Nissan Terra is a brand new SUV that is based on the new Nissan Navara ute. It was scheduled for a release for the Chinese market later in 2018 and has been photographed well ahead of its planned debut. The photos are quite detailed and give us some interesting insights into the Terra and the kind of role it will play. Let’s take a closer look at what we’ve learned about this interesting vehicles.
A Chinese Market Ute?
The Nissan Terra is a vehicle purely marketed towards the Chinese market, and this seems to be borne out in the photos. We’re not sure where the Terra was photographed, but it certainly had characters from the Chinese language on the tailgate. The photos first surfaced online around two months ago on Russian and Ukrainian image boards and car site Auto Centre. In the images, we can see what appears to be a Navara style SUV with a different rear end design. The Chinese writing seems to confirm the rumoured vehicle name, and they spell out the word Terra when translated into English.
The Rumoured Details
The physical dimensions are reported as 4,882mm long, 1,850mm wide and 1,835mm tall. The vehicle will ride on a 2,850mm wheelbase, and this makes the vehicle smaller than the Nissan Navara. In fact, the Nissan Terra would be comparable in size to a number of other vehicles, such as the: Toyota Fortuner, Holden Trailblazer, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Ford Everest. It’s believed that the Terra will be available with a 2.5L petrol engine that can generate 137 kW of power and there are no details of any other engine options. There will also be both two and four wheel drive variants available, but there are no details on the transmission types that will be used.
The Terra Name
The name Terra was last used by Nissan in 2012 for a crossover concept car that used a hydrogen fuel cell. It was a wordplay on the Terrano and Xterra SUVs that were popular in the US up until 2015. The Nissan Xterra is still on sale in China where it’s known as the Paladin. Much like the Terra, the Xterra was a variant of the Navara Ute.
