The Nissan Navara AT32 is Artic Trucks latest creation
Artic Trucks is a company based in Iceland who create some of the most hardcore off roaders this side of America. They are well known for their modified Toyota's which were famously used on Top Gear to send Clarkson and May to the North Pole and to allow May to drive up the side of an active volcano.
In the past 30 years, they've become experts in building off road vehicles to tackle any situation and the Nissan Navara is the latest in the line of their heavily modified trucks.
For the Navara AT32, they've taken a top of the range Navara Tenka and given it the full off road treatment. This includes a safari snorkel, fatter tires, raised the suspension by 20mm and slightly altered body work.
Thanks to the snorkel and raised suspension, the Navara AT32 has a wading depth of 800mm and an impressive 243mm ground clearance. This allows the Navara to go deeper, for longer. The tires are 32 inch Nokian 275/70 that give the truck it's name. The wheels are 17 inch in size and are of Artic Trucks own design.
The Navara has various modifications in the areas you don't normally look at. There is a lot of underbody cladding to protect the engine, gearbox, propshaft and fuel tank from any incidents that may occur. There is also an Artic Trucks branded skid plate.
Despite all of the visual and under body modifications, the Navara's engine remains untouched. This means you still get the 2.3 litre twin-turbodiesel engine which is mated to a six speed gearbox. This means you get 187bhp, 332lb ft of torque, a 0-62mph time of 10.8 seconds and a top speed of 114mph. You also get an average fuel economy of 44.9mpg. Not bad considering that this truck weighs 2018kg.
What makes this even better is that you can by this truck directly through a Nissan sales channel. This means you can go to your local Nissan dealership and by the most capable Navara ever offered officially by Nissan.
So how much does this cost? Well, it's not cheap as it'll set you back £45,000 for the AT32 version. Artic Trucks will also offer you AT35 and AT38 versions of the Navara.
