Nissan has launched a powerful new larger-capacity diesel engine for its flagship X-Trail crossover. The 2.0-litre unit is available to order now, and first deliveries are due to arrive with customers early in the new year.
The new engine has an output of 177-HP, with 380Nm of torque providing excellent pulling power throughout the rev range. It’s a significant step up in power from the existing 1.6-litre 130PS diesel, and clearly meets the needs of consumers who require a higher-output powertrain.
New to the range is the choice of Nissan’s Xtronic CVT automatic gearbox, linked to a four-wheel drive transmission. Added to the options of a six-speed manual and two-wheel drive, this will further broaden Nissan’s presence in the large SUV sector, and enhance the appeal of the much-loved X-Trail.
With the new 2.0-litre engine, the X-Trail is the perfect partner for families seeking even bigger adventures. There are five or seven seats, excellent luggage space, clever storage solutions and enough towing capacity to meet customers’ needs.
