Third time Trucky?

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

Changes to the Navara Series III in­clude Aussiespe­cific mods to the double wish­bone front and – Ben­za­side – seg­ment-unique five-link rear end’s newly ac­quired dual-rate coil springs (lower rate when un­laden; adding weight trig­gers a sec­ond, higher stage for heav­ier loads). As part of promised im­proved dy­nam­ics and com­fort, there’s also a quicker steer­ing ra­tio (at 19.0:1, it’s 14 per­cent higher than be­fore), with fewer turns lock-to-lock (from 4.1 to 3.4). Ad­di­tion­ally, two rear Isofix child-seat mounts and bet­ter-lo­cated tub load­ing points have been fit­ted.
