Remember when Nissan launched the Navara Black Edition II in Thailand? Well for those that have been waiting to get one, now is your chance.

Nissan Philippines Inc. (NPI) has officially launched the Navara Black Edition for the local market. With it, the pickup truck gets a cool new look and is available in both 4x2 and 4x4 variants.

Unlike the standard Navara, the Black Edition gets some cool extras. For starters the front grill, alloy wheels and side mirror caps get a gloss black finish that give the Navara a meaner look. Other portions of the Navara like the door handles, and the running boards are also painted in gloss black.

It is then accompanied by orange accents which can be seen throughout the exterior and provides a constrasting look against the pre-dominantly blacked-out exterior. And to further distinguish the Black Edition from the rest, it gets black decals on the lower section of the doors along with smoked LED headlights.

Beside switching up the exterior, Nissan was also busy inside the Navara. All variants come with an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and leather-fabric upholstery complete with orange contrast stitching. This makes for a more inviting and cool-looking cabin than the standard Navara. To top it all off, Nissan's Around View Monitor System is standard equipment on all Black Edition models.

Powering the Black Edition Navara is the 2.5-liter turbo-diesel engine that can be mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmissions. In 4x2 models, the engine puts out 163 PS with 403 Nm of torque. Meanwhile 4x4 variants produce more at 190 PS and 450 Nm of torque.

"The new Nissan Navara Black Edition creates a safer and smarter drive, with the timeless design of the best-selling pick up enhanced by new design elements for those who want to standout. With Nissan Intelligent Mobility features, owners of the Nissan Navara Black Edition are empowered to have exhilarating driving experiences, giving them the freedom to really ‘Go Anywhere’, because of the vehicle’s robust design and advanced technology," said Atsushi Najima, president and managing director of NPI.
