All new Nissan Patrol revealed in the Middle East

All new Nissan Patrol revealed in the Middle East

Nissan has just pulled the covers off its all-new, upsized Patrol SUV today in Abu Dhabi, and the rugged old favourite has gone all upmarket. Like its Toyota Land Cruiser competitor the Patrol has lost the utilitarian look and in its place, Nissan has delivered a decidedly more rounded, leather-lined, TV-screened luxury hauler.

Power comes from a direct-injected 5.6-litre V8 that produces 400 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. That engine is mated to a seven-speed automatic and a new electronic four-wheel-drive system with four driver-selectable modes (pavement, sand, rock, and snow). The truck rides on a new four-wheel independent suspension, and  features the latest tech including a hydraulic body roll counter system, hill start assist, and hill descent control.

Inside, there’s a spacious cabin with premium features and better overall material quality. A unique new feature is what Nissan calls a “curtain vent” – openings above each window that direct cool air straight down to form a layer of air-conditioned insulation between each passenger and the glass on hot days.

Check back as we bring you more info on the new Nissan Patrol and its pricing and availability in NZ.
