Getting much slyting cues from the Nissan Navara, the Nissan Terra 2018's strong design is supported by the ladder-frame chassis and the 5-link coil-spring rear suspension used in the Navara. There will be equipment of the 4-wheel drive powerplant in some models, which foretells the coming of a rugged, authentic, and tough drive every time getting off the road.

Pedro Deanda, Terra’s Chief Product Specialist of Nissan, said in a statement that they are doing their utmost to bring all the history and knowledge of the Patrol to this project in order to build a truly capable car.

It won’t be long till the day the Nissan Terra 2018 is showcased to the public. The world premiere of this 7-seater is set to take place at this year's Beijing Auto Show just in a few weeks from now. It is announced by Nissan that a QR25 gasoline will come equipped in the Chinese-spec Terra, cranking out 252 Nm of torque and 180 PS. The bad news is that it is only a five-seater vehicle while other markets may be offered with 7-seaters as well.

The brand also disclosed the Nissan Terra will come available in other Asian countries later this year and chances are these models will all come standard with turbodiesels we have seen in the Navara.
