Nissan Patrol

The Nissan Patrol is one of the cars that helped open up Australia, spawning a long-running but mostly good natured feud between Patrol owners and Toyota LandCruiser fans that crosses generations.

The large seven seat, four-door SUV is a shadow of its former rugged self, though, with the long-awaited sixth-generation Patrol launching in 2010 in petrol form only. With the US and the Middle East not interested in diesel, Australian sales wouldn't justify the development costs of adding a new diesel. It's still a tough, ladder-frame off-roader with real ability, but a lack of driving range plays against it.

Current prices range from $76,990 to $92,790 for the Patrol Ti (4x4) and Patrol Ti-L (4x4).

Nissan Patrol Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Patrol here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Nissan Patrol 2006: How much is it worth?

    That’s an awful lot of money for a 2006 Nissan Patrol, Heather, but there are a couple of mitigating factors. The first is the incredibly low mileage and if there’s a GU Patrol out there with fewer kilometres showing, then I’d be a bit surprised.

    The second thing in the car’s favour is that it has the mighty 4.8-litre petrol six-cylinder engine which is one of the best towing engines ever made for a passenger vehicle. A Patrol with that engine will always find a buyer even if, at $18,000, it’s right at the top of the price ladder. Then again, given that it represents more or less a brand-new 2006 Patrol (and this model was a cool $80,000 on the road back in the day) maybe $18,000 is a steal. Depends on how you look at it.

    The only caveat is that it will use lots and lots of fuel and double that amount if you tow a caravan with it.

  • Nissan Patrol: Resale value

    Wow, that’s a rare beast, Tom. It’s also a bit of a unicorn and, since no two converted Patrol tippers were the same (more or less) there are no hard and fast rules on what they’re worth second-hand.

    From the sound of things, yours is in very nice condition and has low kilometres, so they’re both good selling points. But from a buyer’s point of view, I’d want to know that the vehicle has been properly engineered (as these were converted to tippers by third party modifiers, rather than Nissan itself) and that it has all the paperwork necessary to obtain a roadworthy certificate and be legally registered. What your insurance provider will make of such a vehicle is up to them, but it’s another consideration for would-be buyers.

    As for a price guide, the only similar vehicle I could find for sale at the moment was around the $20,000 mark. But this is a classic case of a vehicle being worth precisely what somebody else will pay for it.

  • What is the best tow vehicle to buy?

    The GQ Patrol was a tough old bird, but it’s old and buying one now is a gamble. You could consider a Toyota Landcruiser, but again your budget will limit you to an older vehicle and that is always a risk. You could perhaps consider fitting power steering to the XF ute.

  • Nissan Patrol 2004: Losing power

    It sounds like a problem with the turbo or the fuel pump. Get it to a diesel mechanic and have it checked.
