Nissan has revealed the updated Patrol ahead of a local arrival later this year, the brand promises increased comfort, connectivity and safety.
For 2020 the Patrol gets a revised V-motion grille, along with new boomerang-shaped LED headlights and tail-lights.
Internally a new centre console contains dual displays featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There are also new diamond-stitch quilted leather seats with added padding and a hand-stitched leather steering wheel.
Importantly, safety tech has been beefed up with autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection and the intelligent forward-collision warning system included as standard.
Nissan claims they have made significant reduction to noise and vibration levels as well as improving the cooling and airflow distribution systems for greater refinement.
In global markets, there is the option of a 4.0-litre V6 engine developing 205kW/394Nm and a 5.6-litre V8 petrol engine developing 298kW/560Nm available, though it is likely only the V8 will be available Down Under in Ti and Ti-L grades.
With Toyota discontinuing the petrol LandCruiser, the Patrol will be competing directly with Toyota’s 4.5-litre turbo-diesel flagship.
The updated Nissan Patrol will be available locally before the end of 2019 with specifications and pricing to be announced closer to the launch date.
