Machine-cut 18” alloy wheels add a formidable presence, with the all-new Organic C-Signature LED lights making this sleek design standout.
Attention to detail and luxury means a truly first-class travel experience for all. Inside, the class-leading interior space sports a 13-speaker Bose premium sound system, a multi-screen DVD entertainment system, 8” rear seat entertainment, independent wireless headphones and remote-enabled passenger vehicle infotainment.

The new Nissan Patrol puts control at your fingertips with an 8” colour touch information screen, Bluetooth® hands free and audio streaming, climate control, Intelligent Key® with push button start and remote keyless entry – all helping you to get to your destination in a way that’s connected and effortless.
Significant reductions in noise and vibration result in a quieter, more pleasant cabin. Improved cooling and air flow distribution systems lead to quicker cooling.
The latest in tech
The Nissan Patrol leads with Nissan Intelligent Mobility, equipped with driver assistance technology that helps you see and sense more, with a dynamic range of safety technologies. It’s a more connected, confident way to drive in all conditions.
The new Patrol comes with Intelligent Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection and the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning system that warns the driver of risks that lie beyond the driver’s forward field of vision. The advanced radar system does not only sense the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, but also that of a vehicle travelling in front of the preceding one. Also included is standard Intelligent Cruise Control and Intelligent Driver Alert, which analyses the driver steering behaviour to signal and alert if signs of drowsiness, or inattention are detected.
Responsive braking is provided by a four-wheel disc brake system with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist. Also standard is 4-wheel limited-slip diff (LSD) and a Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system, which automatically prevents the vehicle from sliding sideways on slippery road surfaces when changing lanes or negotiating a curve. Steering is provided by an engine-speed-sensitive power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system.
Pure power and advanced capabilities
There is no substitute for power and torque, and the Nissan Patrol’s 5.6L V8 engine allows you to go where others don’t dare. With this class-leading engine boasting 298 kW of power, and an exceptionally strong 560 Nm of torque, this powerful engine allows you to take command in – any terrain – the tougher, the better!
Power and technology meet with Intelligent 4×4, ensuring that no matter how demanding the driving conditions, the Nissan Patrol will have maximum grip at all times, seamlessly transferring drive between wheels and axles. Simply switch between four drive modes with just a press of a button.
Even with more power, passengers can enjoy a more comfortable ride thanks to improved suspension and vibration reduction.
