Nissan is apparently considering expanding its model range with a tuned version of its new Nissan Navara pickup truck. The news comes from Nismo's global boss of sales and marketing Darren Cox, who was speaking with CarAdvice at the Nismo Festival in Japan.
Darren Cox said, "In terms of product we need to be credible, pickup would be a massive seller for Nissan all around the world as it’s very much a global product. Nismo has to be a credible production car from Nissan that’s sporty and therefore we study the implications of that, a pickup could be an interesting product because of its global nature when we go into other markets."
So it looks like Nissan is adding some very exciting engines to its pickup trucks. This is a good strategy to bring more attention to Nissan trucks, which they could use since the American brands have a pretty big lock on the pickup market.
