Who doesn't want a lifted pick-up truck? With an increased ride height, bigger wheels and tires, and better ground clearance, flash floods, and uneven terrain will not be a problem for such a vehicle.

Take for example the Nissan Navara N-Trek Warrior? First revealed in Australia late last year, the pick-up truck gets more than just an aggressive exterior. It gets uprated springs and dampers which lift the vehicle by 40mm, larger wheels and tires, and more rugged bumpers.

Now, the Navara N-Trek Warrior has officially made its way to Southeast Asia, with pick-up crazy Thailand being the first to get it. Like its Australian counterpart, the special edition Navara gets all-terrain tires that measure 275/70 that are shod in unique 17-inch N-Trek Warrior alloy wheels. It also gets new springs and dampers that lift the vehicle by the same 40mm.

As for the exterior, the pick-up truck gets a more rugged front bumper with a hoopless body-colored steel bullbar, blacked-out wheel arches, an all-black front grille, orange accents throughout the body, black roof rails, black side steps with orange highlights, and a different rear bumper. To keep the chassis safe from all types of debris, Nissan also installed a front skid plate and a shockproof pad under the truck.

Inside, the pick-up pretty much remains the same. Both variants get leather upholstery, a Nissan Connect infotainment touchscreen system, Bluetooth connectivity, USB/Aux ports, a navigation system (4WD only), a power-adjustable driver's seat, and a six-speaker audio system.

Under the hood, the N-Trek Warrior is available with the familiar 2.5-liter YD25DDTi, four-cylinder turbo-diesel. In 4x2 guise, the engine makes 163 PS along with 403 Nm of torque. The 4x4 version, meanwhile, makes a meatier 190 PS and 450 Nm of torque. Both models are connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission as standard.

Will the N-Trek Warrior be actually offered in the Philippines soon? There's no word yet from Nissan Philippines, Inc, about its release. But should interest continue to rise in the pick-up truck segment, Nissan may have to bring it sooner rather than later. We're keeping our hopes up that Nissan does bring it here.
