AROUND THE INDUSTRY
Considering the concept vehicle Nissan recently released based on the Navara, we like what could potentially be coming our way. The EnGuard Rescue Concept was revealed at the Hanover Motor Show and shows a modern Navara with some very attractive modifications to make it more off-road ready. The usual suspects in improved off-road performance include larger, aggressive mud-terrains, fender flares, a 2-in lift, winch, under armour and a ton of LED lights, which provide 360-degree illumination. Designed as a SAR (search and rescue) vehicle, the addition of cargo drawers, electronics charging and portable power packs also mean this would make a great Overland vehicle. Of course, this is just a concept, but hopefully the future Frontier will take some cues.
