cars, utes

Chris Reid Jul 10, 2023

It’s been a little while since we last put a car depreciation profile together so we thought we’d give it a revisit, this time with the Nissan Navara. We went through the ins and outs of what car depreciation is in our Mazda CX-5 depreciation article so if you need a bit of a refresher, have a read of that to get back up to speed.

Okay, now back to the vehicle in question!

The 2021 Nissan Navara has effectively had the biggest overhaul since the truck was introduced to the market back in 2015. It really does look awesomely tough, especially the top-of-the-line PRO-4X which comes stock with fender flares, all-terrain tyres and a black-on-red styling theme that looks seriously good.

Unfortunately, though, there’s been no power improvements from the previous model-year; all models in the range come with a 2.3-litre twin turbo engine, with the 4WD models pushing out 450nM of torque. Conversely, price HAS gone up across the range - perhaps due to the advanced tech available in the MY21 Navara range.

If you’re considering buying a Nissan Navara, whether for personal or business use, it’s a good idea to get a gauge on its prospective resale value by sussing out its anticipated rate of depreciation - we’ve gone ahead and done that for you, so read on!


How the Navara compares to industry standard depreciation


Using this Canstar article as a reference, the average depreciation rates for cars for each year of ownership within the first three years are as follows:

  • 19% after the first year
  • Another 15% after the second year
  • Yet another 15% after the third year

Righto, so now we know that we can compare the Nissan Navara against the industry average and see how she fares.

Using the base model 2020 Navara Manual 4X2 SL Single Cab Chassis as the basis for our comparison, we tapped into the database over at to find out how it measures up.


As you can see, according to redbook, its purchase price new is the previously stated $32,300 and the trade-in price ranges between $23,100 and $25,800 which equates to a first-year depreciation rate of around 20% to 28%.
