2013 Nissan Patrol

The all-new sixth-generation Nissan Patrol will arrive in Australia in January 2013 – a full three years after its release in the Middle East.

Trim levels begin with the eight passenger entry level ST-L and feature an eight way power seat on the drivers side, seven inch display, 18 inch wheels, front and rear parking sensors, rear view camera, Bluetooth connectivity, a stereo system with a 2GB music server and six speakers and side steps. The eight passenger mid-level Ti trim level adds an adjustable passenger seat, leather trim, rain sensing wipers, power sunroof, Hydraulic Body Motion Control Suspension (HBMC) to keep body roll under control and power steering that senses the speed of the car and adjusts. The top-of-the-line, seven passenger Ti-L includes technology and luxury items like memory settings for the seat, satellite navigation capability, premium sound system with 13 speakers, two DVD screens in the back to entertain the kids, monitor for four external cameras that see all around the car and blind spot warning system.

Nissan invested in safety for Patrol owners with six airbags, full length side curtain airbags, brake assist, anti-lock brakes with brake force distribution and vehicle dynamic control.

The Patrol likes dirt as well as pavement what makes the . It will wade through 700mm of water, inch its way over large boulders and provide traction for mud and snow. More importantly, drivers of the Patrol will do it in comfort because of Nissan’s proprietary HBMC. Nissan developed it for its world rallying effort. HBMC uses two networks of cross linked pipes to change the fluid pressure in each shock absorber. The HBMC comes in the Ti and Ti-L trim levels. Off-road the HBMC replaces anti-roll bars and gives greater suspension travel. The Patrol comes with all-wheel drive which can send power to all four wheels, fifty percent to the front wheels or all power to the rear wheels. A rear differential lock can be engaged when needed. The Patrol can be driven in high or low range and with four driving modes: on-road, sand, rocks and snow. It also comes standard with hill start assist and hill decent control.

The engine for all levels is a 5.6 liter, DOHC, aluminum alloy V8 producing 298kW (400 horsepower) and 560N (413 lb-ft.) of torque and sending it to the wheels with a seven speed automatic transmission. Nissan included Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) and direct injection in the engine and claims a top speed of 210 km/h and a combined fuel consumption of 14.5 L/100km. The Patrol will tow 3500 kg.

Prices for the 2013 Nissan Patrol range from A$82,200 for the entry level ST-L, A$92,580 for the Ti and A$113,900 for the Ti-L.
