WE LOVE BEING able to feature some of the best and most interesting modified 4x4 vehicles from around Australia and the world each month in 4X4 Australia. These vehicles show there’s no end to the ingenuity and imagination of 4x4 owners and drivers. All sorts of vehicles are covered, from vintage Jeeps to diminutive Suzukis and the latest LandCruisers and Patrols, and nothing is off limits when it comes to the modifications performed. Whether you’re simply adding a set of all-terrain tyres, a long range tank and a bullbar for long-distance touring with the family, or going all-out with 44-inch tyres, a V8 conversion, competition suspension and a roll cage for a rock crawler, the way you kit your fourby is a reflection of you and what you do. Everyone is…

nissan’s raptor-fighting navara warrior

NISSAN Australia has pulled the wraps off its Navara N-Trek Warrior, the vehicle it hopes will take the battle up to other tricked-up 4x4 utes such as the Ford Ranger Raptor, Toyota Hilux Rugged-X and HSV SportsCat. The N-Trek Warrior will be based on the recently released Navara N-Trek model, but it adds beefed-up suspension, bigger wheels and tyres, a steel front bumper and other tack-ons. The regular Navara N-Trek retails for $56,450 in six-speed manual form, but pricing for the Warrior won’t be available until closer to its December launch date. We’re tipping the Warrior will come in between the $62,000 to $67,000 mark, to place it in between the likes of the Rugged-X and Raptor, and in-line with the SportsCat. The list of equipment fitted to the Warrior includes a…
