The Patrol is Nissan’s premium flagship model aimed at people with a distinctly affluent taste. It’s for the sophisticated buyer who requires an SUV that’s big on features, big on opulence, big on style and big on exclusivity.
Designed for full-sized family adventures, the Nissan Patrol maintains its 7-passenger utility and has an impressive array of high-tech standard features.

As a flagship model, the Patrol’s power, premium comfort specification and sophisticated Nissan Intelligent Mobility features are far superior than its direct competitors.

Its general appearence is identical to the previous model but some new toutches, in and out, as well as confort elements, technology items are added.
The Patrol is powered by a robust, high-tech 5.6-litre V8 petrol engine that develops 298kW of power and 560Nm of torque, mated to a silky smooth 7-speed automatic gearbox that uses variable valve technology to deliver seamless performance whenever it’s needed.
It can trundle along quite happily in gridlocked traffic and when the opportunity presents itself, the Patrol will produce a prodigious amount of energy to power its 3.5 tons in a short amount of time.
The All-Mode 4-wheel drive system features Auto/4H/4LO modes and an electronically controlled part-time transfer case. Under normal driving conditions, the system operates in two-wheel drive mode, but it can distribute torque to all four wheels when road conditions warrant it (up to 50 percent of torque can go to the front wheels on demand).

Responsive braking is provided by a 4-wheel disc brake system with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist. Also standard is ABLS (Active Brake Limited Slip) and a Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system. Steering is provided by an engine-speed-sensitive power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system.
The Patrol’s formidable independent double-wishbone front and rear suspension provides smooth ride comfort and responsive handling for both on-road and off-road driving.

A Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is also included with a warning lamp in the gauge cluster or a warning display in the navigation system.
The new Nissan Patrol Premium costs R1,299,000. The Patrol is backed up by Nissan Assured and has a class-leading 6-year/150,000km warranty, and a comprehensive 3-year/90,000km service plan.
