First, take a close look at the first picture on this thread.

Then, take a look at the following image:

The two look like one of those "spot-the-differences" image pairs because:-

Alaskan : Navara : : Terrano : Duster

(Nissan's Navara is also known as the NP300 in some markets.)

Renault & Nissan may have declared that there would be no more badge-engineered vehicles from their stables, but that is applicable for India only.

Think you've had enough of badge-engineering from the Renault-Nissan Alliance? Wait until the Mercedes-Benz X-Class is revealed. It may well turn out into something like this:

This is the pickup on which the upcoming Mercedes truck is going to be based on.

Nissan is currently developing the SUV based on the Navara. Hope they bring it to India ASAP.
