Nissan has revealed an updated version of its rugged Navara AT32 pick-up truck, claiming enhanced efficiency and driveability over the previous model. 
The AT32 – so-called because it’s been fitted with 32in Nokian tyres and modified by Icelandic off-road specialist Arctic Trucks – follows in the footsteps of its predecessor with bespoke wheel arch extensions, Bilstein performance suspension components and model-specific badging all around.
Revisions include the addition of a new lightweight aluminum protective undertray, plus dual valves to the 17in alloy wheels to allow faster tire pressure adjustment when off-roading.
The tyres themselves are of a new design that's said to improve fuel economy, emissions, and on-road handling. 
Optional extras include an electronically locking front differential, which boosts traction on slippery terrain, and an air intake snorkel that gives the truck a claimed wading depth of 800mm - and increase of 200mm over the standard Navara. 
The twin-turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder diesel engine is carried over from the standard Navara
The AT32 keeps the equipment of the N-Guard specification that's available on that model, including hill start assistance, hill descent control, automatic emergency braking, and a 360deg parking camera. 
The Ford Ranger Raptor rival will go on sale in the UK in February, with prices and performance details to be announced nearer the time. It's likely to command a slight premium over the current model, which starts at £39,640.
