The all-new Nissan NP300 Navara recently made its launch debut here in Malaysia, with a total of six variants being offered, priced from RM79,000 up to RM120,800. Following its launch, Edaran Tan Chong Motor has now released a video commercial starring the pick-up in its top-spec VL configuration.

The video starts with our protagonist running away from the “baddies” that are chasing him with a couple of quad bikes and an old D22 Frontier. Our “hero,” who closely resembles a very famous archaeologist/historian/college professor by the name of Indiana Jones, soon gets into his getaway vehicle, the NP300 Navara.

Firing up the 2.5 litre YD25DDTi four-cylinder turbodiesel engine with the keyless start system, our hero sets off across the rough terrain, with the Navara’s multi-link rear suspension providing a more supple ride as compared to its predecessor’s leaf spring setup.

The pick-up’s seven-speed automatic gearbox (with manual override) also gets featured in the ad, allowing our hero to dictate which gear is most suitable given his current predicament. Even on slippery surfaces, the NP300 Navara’s Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) system ensures the truck keep on going, while Hill Descent Control ensures going down steep slopes is an effortless affair.

By this point, the “baddies’” vehicles are already struggling to keep up with the truck, which now wraps a chain around a boulder, before unleashing the 2.5 litre turbodiesel’s 190 PS and more importantly, the 450 Nm of torque used to pull the boulder along to cover up the Navara, and our hero’s exit path.

What do you think of the new Nissan NP300 Navara’s advertisement? It certainly does have a certain amount of charm to it, don’t you think?
