Tested in the most unforgiving conditions Africa has to offer, the Nissan NP300 HARDBODY has proven over the years that it’s made to last. Specifically engineered for harsh environments, all NP300 HARDBODY models incorporate a heavy duty axle with reinforced chassis and suspension to absorb the impact of the toughest terrain.
ON THE ROAD
AFRICAN BUILT, AFRICAN TOUGH
The Nissan NP300 HARDBODY is the unmistakable king of African pickups, having earned an enviable reputation over the years for reliability and ruggedness. In virtually any situation and on just about any type of terrain, you can depend on it to get the job done every time – no matter what you ask of it.
A Vehicle for every need
NP300 comes in a variety of models that will cater for all your daily needs: 2WD Single Cab Base Grade; 4WD Single Cab Mid Grade; 4WD Double Cab Mid Grade and the 4WD Double Cab High Grade.
Nissan diesel engines have built an enviable reputation for clean firing, smoother acceleration and drivability, resulting in impressive fuel efficiency with reduced emissions. The result is a quieter ride with less vibration, wear and tear and an overall decrease in maintenance costs.
VENTILATED FRONT DISC BRAKES
Adverse conditions are bound in Africa, which is why we gave the NP300 HARDBODY the added stopping power of ventilated front disc brakes. Providing greater fade resistance than non-ventilated discs, these brakes will help ensure your cargo – and passengers – arrive safely.
CLOSED-SECTION LADDER-TYPE FRAME
With a name like the NP300 HARDBODY, you know it’s built tough. Nowhere is this more evident than in its sturdy, closed-section ladder-type frame. Incorporating five strength-enhancing crossmembers, it delivers the kind of durability that makes this pickup Africa’s first choice for toughness.
Limited Slip Differential
4WD models come standard with a Limited Slip Differential which automatically transfers torque to the non-slipping drive wheel, allowing you to power out of virtually any situation. And unlike diff lock, it won’t lead to expensive breakages due to negligence and can work at speed.
STRONG LOAD BOX
Strong load-box inner panels are grooved to enable the convenient insertion of a board for separate front and rear loading sections, while a horizontal board can also be inserted to divide upper and lower loading decks.
CUSTOMISE YOUR NP300
A variety of accessories are available to customise your NP300 HARDBODY ranging from Tonneau Cover, Towing Kit, Canopy, Loadbox rubberising, Spare wheel locks, Sports Bars, Side Steps, Bonnet and Headlamp guards, Carpet sets, Wraparound bushbar and Nudgebar.
