THE NEW Nissan Patrol is officially on sale in Australia, with the iconic off-roader retailing for $75,990 (Ti) and $91,990 (Ti-L). The major changes to the new-look Patrol pertain to the suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety technologies that are now standard, as well as a revised suspension tune courtesy of improved dampers. Both the Ti and Ti-L models feature Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert as standard, while the Ti has been upgraded with Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention (features already standard on the Ti-L).
Nissan’s design team implemented a sleeker style, which includes tweaks to the bonnet, fender panels, grille and front bumper on both models; boomerang-shaped taillights and a larger chrome nameplate headline the changes to the rear. To differentiate the two, Nissan says the Ti has a “unique sporty front-end design”, while the Ti-L front bumper has a “more premium look”.
