I helped facilitate the purchase of a 2017 Nissan Patrol to a customer a few months ago. I was a bit surprised that someone from Chinchilla didn’t want a Toyota 200 Landcruiser, but in his wife’s words – I wanted something different – everyone has a Cruiser out our way.

And when I saw it, I realized that the Nissan Patrol is a big vehicle with a big V8 engine – just perfect for the country around Chinchilla. There had been rumours from some of the dealers that Nissan may drop the Patrol from the range, but given its popularity and that it was pretty difficult to get, there’s certainly a market for the big Nissan. We ended up sourcing it from Huston Nissan at Kingaroy – I was satisfied with the deal and my customers were pleased with the way they were looked after. So hereunder is the press release from Nissan outlining the enhancements for the Patrol.

Nissan confirms Patrol updates

“Melbourne, Australia (6 October, 2017) – The updates to Nissan’s range continue with Nissan Patrol getting a new look and a variety of enhancements to make it even more attractive to large SUV buyers.

The Patrol’s redesigned front end is both modern and aggressive thanks to a bumper that includes an updated grille with horizontal metallic bars, and new fog lamp housings. A fresh set of 18 inch alloy wheels give a more premium look.

Inside, the Patrol range gets an updated infotainment system with a multi-touch panel making it effortless to use and more intuitive, there are now two USB charging points at the rear of the centre console, while twice the number of front and rear sensors ensure parking is even easier.

Also, long road trips for second row passengers in the range-topping Patrol Ti-L are now even more enjoyable thanks to the larger 8-inch screens that are built into the back of the front seat head rests.

“The changes to Nissan Patrol are sure to attract Patrol devotees and be appealing to new large SUV buyers,” said Nissan Australian managing director Stephen Lester.

“Rear view cameras and 360 all-round views are important on larger SUVs, but doubling the parking sensors to four at the front and four at the rear will make parking, and the manoeuvring of the vehicle in tight spaces, significantly easier.”

The Nissan Patrol boasts a 5.6 litre V8 petrol engine that is the most powerful in its class¹, thanks to its 298kW of power at 5,800rpms and 560Nm of torque at 4,000rpm, helping it perform in the most extreme of conditions.

A 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode complements the All-Mode 4WD shift switch (Auto, 4-high and 4-low capabilities) and the Hydraulic Body Motion Control (HBMC) suspension system, providing the driver and occupants with a comfortable ride and handling experience on all surfaces.

As standard equipment across the range, Patrol includes Satellite Navigation with 3D mapping and an 8-inch integrated colour display with touch screen, a Bluetooth® hands free phone system with steering wheel controls, push button start, climate control and a full size alloy spare wheel.

The Patrol has driver and passenger front and side-impact SRS airbags, and curtain airbags that extend to all three rows, while the Patrol Ti-L also gets a range of active safety technologies including; Blind Spot Warning and Intervention (BSW & BSI), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Distance Control Assist (DCA) and Lane Departure Warning and Prevention (LDW & LDP), to name a few.

Available in seven contemporary exterior colours, prices start at $71,990* plus on-roads.”
