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 $52,290 to $86,990 for the Patrol DX (4x4) and Patrol Ti-L (4x4).

Nissan Patrol Ti 2013 review

The challenge was how to shoehorn it into a shopping centre parking bay. Nissan's new Patrol V8 is a big machine, more than 5.1m in length and close on 2m wide and tall.Read more

Nissan Patrol V8 Ti 2013 review

Never has so much occupied one suburban driveway. In an ocean of SUVs, the Nissan Patrol V8 is the volcanic island. Even the Land Cruiser 200-Series is dwarfed by 150mm in length, 25mm in width, 35mm in height and down 100kg. Do we need a 4WD this size?...Read more
