Nissan Australia has increased the pricing of the Patrol just months out from the launch of its direct rival, the new-generation Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series.
The entry fee to Nissan’s upper-large SUV has risen by $2250, with the base grade Ti now listing for $81,160 (plus on-road costs). The only other grade in the range is the Ti-L, and its price jump is just $750, so it now lists for $94,115.
Despite the price hikes, there has been no additions to the Patrol’s equipment list.

The standard features list for the Ti remains the same and includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, sat-nav, a six-speaker stereo, three-zone climate control, power-adjustable front seats with leather upholstery, proximity key and safety tech such as AEB, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
The Ti-L’s features list also remains the same and includes all of the Ti’s features plus a 13-speaker Bose sound system, two 8.0-inch seat-back screens for the second-row passengers, a power tailgate, roof rails, an electric sunroof, heated and cooled front seats and puddle lights.
The Ti comes standard with eight seats, while the Ti-L has seven seats.
There has been no increase in the output of the Patrol’s 5.6-litre petrol V8, which still produces 298kW and 560Nm. A seven-speed automatic is standard, so too is four-wheel drive with a low-range gear.
By comparison, the current LandCruiser 200 Series has a 4.5-litre diesel V8 making 200kW and 650Nm.
The Nissan V8 is about to become special indeed, with Toyota dumping its V8 in favour of a 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 for the new LandCruiser, and while it makes colossal torque at 700Nm, the Patrol will still outpower the LC300’s 227kW.
