The new Nissan Patrol has just hit the streets in Australia, and has caused much excitement. So much so, that we are eagerly awaiting its arrival here in South Africa. While the release date has not yet been set, there is plenty to look forward to.
The newly imagined Patrol is the final word in the luxury SUV category, while maintaining its rugged, hard working demeanour. Traditionally the Nissan Patrol was renowned for its ability to perform under the toughest conditions. When pushed to the limits the Patrol has always passed the test. The reinvented version not only lives up to the reputation of its predecessors, but brings the Patrol speeding into the limelight with its polished design, cutting edge technology and supremely styled comfort.
With features that include a 5.6 litre V8 engine that provides 298 kW of power and 560 Nm of torque and a 3,500 kg towing capacity you are guaranteed to be first across the finish line, every time, no matter what your load is. There is quite literally nothing the Nissan Patrol can’t tow. With a seven speed automatic gearbox that can be shifted into manual mode and all mode 4×4 that comes with multi surface selection, there is no terrain that it too tough either.
The Nissan mantra is “Innovation that excites” and the Nissan Patrol is no exception to this rule! In its entirety it is dynamic, versatile and innovative. It reinvents the mould for the traditional large SUV with its startlingly, bold redesign and extreme ability to perform, but there is more. The technology implemented in this model is astounding, and proves that this is so much more than just a car. There are all the bells and whistles that you’d expect such as the satellite navigation system, bluetooth, push button start, climate control and Intelligent Key® with remote keyless entry to name a few. But there is more: front DVD player, front 8” screen, music hard drive and in some models there are 7” multi format screens in the second row too.
The new Nissan Patrol has to be seen to be believed, and we are hoping to see it in showrooms and on our streets very soon. In the meantime, imagine a car that could fulfill all your needs: tough, luxurious, stylish, sophisticated, fit for the open road or city streets and fitted with all the mod cons and more. This is no longer a figment of your imagination, it’s very real and it’s heading our way soon.
