D40 (2005 - 2013)
Navara D40 (2005-2013)
Ute Models RX, ST, ST-X, ST-X 550
With a ladder-frame chassis, independent front suspension utilising double wishbones and coil springs and a rear live axle supporting an ever trusty and reliable leaf spring set up, the D40 was designed as a workhorse for the masses. Engine choices ranged from a 2.5L or 3L turbo diesel four cylinder, 4L V6 petrol monster or, in the top spec ST-X 550, a 170kw 3L V6 turbo diesel.
A part time 4WD system is standard which is controlled via a rotary switch on the centre console. Rear wheel drive on the road and 50/50 locked power split once the dial is rotated to 4H or 4L.
