All New Nissan Patrol

Just as the guys over at 4th Ring Road have already posted the new Nissan Patrol is out and a substantial difference of what the machine used to look like. The machine was fittingly unveiled in Emirates as being the state known for off roading and the love of SUVs, its befitting the rival of the Landcruiser to be release here first. Looks like they have made quite a different machine then what they once had, a more upscale look to the machine with a more luxurious interior. Benefitting from a 400 bhp engine a lot of comparisons will be made between the Landcruiser and the Patrol and I’m assuming it will be cheaper as well. Looks like they took to Toyotas formula to change from rugged looks to upscale SUV which is more capable then its predecessor. I’m a huge fan of Nissan and looking forward to seeing this machine on the road, looks like Nissan are going for the same badged nose as all their vehicle lines.

Power comes from a direct-injected 5.6-liter V8 that’s good for 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 incorporates features such as a hydraulic body roll mitigation system, hill start assist, and hill descent control.
