NISSAN has unveiled what might best be described as the more of everything 2020 Nissan Patrol, with enhancements that offer customers even higher levels of sophistication, comfort, safety and connectivity.
The Patrol features a striking new design, enhanced luxury features and the latest advanced Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies. At the same time, the new Nissan Patrol retains its exceptional on and off-road capabilities and class leading power.
An icon of Nissan’s SUV heritage, the Patrol has long been recognised for its durability, reliability, premium design, safety, comfort features and unmatched all-terrain performance, and remains the flagship of Nissan’s extensive 4×4 lineup.
Design changes include include Nissan’s V-motion grille, new boomerang shaped LED headlights and taillights, a new large chrome nameplate and sequential rear turn indicators.
Inside, a new centre console incorporates dual displays, with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while diamond stitch quilted leather seats with added padding provide a luxurious feel, as does the new hand stitched steering wheel.
Climate control and powered lumbar support are optionally available for the front seats, while significant reductions in noise and vibration result in a quieter, more pleasant cabin. Improved cooling and air flow distribution systems also offer quicker cooling.
The 2020 Nissan Patrol also stands out for its extensive suite of advanced safety and security technologies, including intelligent emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and the intelligent forward collision warning system.
All-terrain Patrol power is provided by the strongest V6 and V8 engines in the segment, with confirmation still to come on whether the V6 will come to Australia. It’s a 4-litre power plant producing 205kW of power and 394 Nm of torque.
The 5.6-litre V8, producing 298kW and 560Nm, remains unchanged from the current Patrol, and both models remain petrol variants. An All-Mode 4×4 system lets the driver switch modes to handle different on and off-road conditions.
Hydraulic body motion control, available on V8 models, ensures a more comfortable ride thanks to improved suspension and vibration reduction.
Pricing and launch dates for the 2020 Nissan Patrol’s launch onto the Australian market are yet to be announced.
