We all love that manufacturers do bet on sports cars, which are unmarked what each brand has accustomed us to offer. So we like the Nismo Nissan Navara division gaining strength and will encourage them to launch more sporty versions of the models they sell. But while many dream of seeing the dealers to Nismo Nissan Pulsar seems others think to apply this name to a pick-up.
In an interview CarAdvice the head of global sales and marketing of Nissan, Darren Cox, has come to light the Nismo Nissan Navara, at least as an idea that haunts the minds of some executives of the brand. There seems sensible to apply a name like the Nismo Nissan Navara, which can claim to be a robust and effective vehicle off-road, but it represents the antithesis of sportsmanship.
The Nismo Nissan Navara might not be far-fetched
The truth is launching a Nismo Nissan Navara could be interesting for the image pick-up and marketing, but could also be a double-edged sword to distort the essence of the Nismo name. Something already about the Nissan Micra Nismo, who missed the honor of his name with a simple aerodynamic kit that gave him a funny look. In Nissan are at least aware of this issue and know that not suffice a larger tires and an aerodynamic kit, there must be consistency.
Cox has said it carried out a project of this type, it would be something different from what we are accustomed Nismo. See a pick-up oriented competition asphalt would be somewhat complicated, but to SsangYong not seem like it, so his would create a halo prototype as it was at the time the Nissan Juke R or bet so more logical has a pick-up designed for high performance off-road, something like the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, which would be the only way not to distort or reputation of Nismo Nissan Navara.
