In October 1979, Nissan introduced the Datsun 720 as the successor to the 620. A four-door, crew cab version of the 720 was available in most markets (though not North America). Additionally, some overseas models continued the early style beds in the later model years, as well as the lower-cost round headlights, and included various combinations of Datsun and Nissan badges while retaining the Datsun name throughout the years. of the model. In Japan, round headlights were standard, but high-end models like the GL received square headlights. In Japan, the standard engine was originally the J16, but in 1982 it was changed to the more modern derivative of the Z16.
In 1983, the front end was transformed with a larger grill, bumper, and corner lights. There was also a revised board with round gauges instead of square ones. At the same time, the regular cab was slightly lengthened and the vents behind the cab doors changed from a tall “flag” look to long, narrow ones that matched the height of the window opening. The cabins of the King Cab versions were not modified.
In 1980, American models were powered by Datsun’s 2.0L carbureted L20B I4 engine, but shortly thereafter they switched to the 1981 Nissan NAPS-Z engine line (Z22S). “NAPS” was the terminology that Nissan used to describe its pollution control technology as a result of the emission regulation laws that were enacted in Japan beginning in 1975. In the Middle East, it was powered by the L18 carbureted engine from 1.8 L of Datsun. The 1981-1982 models used the 2.2L carbureted Z22 engine and an optional SD22 diesel of the same displacement. In mid-1983, Nissan introduced the 2.4-liter two-spark four-cylinder Z24 engine, producing 103 hp (77 kW), 2.3 L SD23 OHV four-way diesel and the SD25 diesel.

The diesel engines were sourced from the Nissan Diesel division, which Nissan Motors acquired in 1960. This dominated 720 sales in many markets and was also available in combination with 4WD. In the US market, the diesel engine was only available on the 2WD 720 (from 1982 to 1985). The Z24 was upgraded to a single point fuel injection Z24i for some 1986 ST models. The rest of the world had versions with smaller 1.5 L J15, 1.6 L J16 or 1.8 L L18 carbureted engines. The 720 Series was never available with any of the Z22E or Z20E multi-port fuel injection engines.
In the US, the 720 came in Regular Cab and “King Cab” models, with regular and long bed options with Standard (GL), Deluxe (DX) and “Sport Truck” (ST) trim packages. , all of which had two doors. Also, from 1984 to 1986, a company called the Matrix3 called Bushmaster offered a covered utility body style like that of the first generation 4Runner as an aftermarket conversion. The Datsun 720 was available in 2WD and 4WD configurations, the latter with a divorced transfer case. Long wheelbase 2WD trucks (King Cab, Short Bed and Regular Cab, Long Bed) had a two-piece driveshaft with a center support bearing. The ceiling light could be folded back to illuminate the bed.
The 720 was assembled at the newly built Smyrna, Tennessee plant from model year 1983.5 through 1986. However, Nissan of Mexico continued to build the truck until 1991, with 1992 being its last official model year. They were exported to all of Latin America.
Models from 1980 to 1983 were called “Datsun 720”. They had single-walled beds with rolled outer edges and rope loops, two faux hood vents (some had actual vents), and taillights on the lower rear valance (similar to the 620). These vehicles were identified by a small Datsun logo on the driver’s side of the grille, a raised plastic Datsun badge on the front fenders, a large Datsun embossed on the tailgate, as well as Datsun decals on the underside. tailgate left, and model designation on the right. The owner’s manual and service manuals retained the Datsun name.
