Expected Launch Date: DEC 2016 – JAN 2017Alert me when launched
Nissan Patrol PreviewThis beast of a SUV comes from the stable of the renowned Japanese automaker, Nissan. The SUV going by the nomenclature of Nissan Patrol when released will come in two trims of Ti and Ti-L, and shall compete with worthies like Land Rover Range Rover Sport and Toyota Land Cruiser in particular, besides with well entrenched SUVs from the German behemoths. The vehicle scores heavily in terms of expanded dimensions of 5.1 metres in length, 2 metres wide and almost similarly tall, and most importantly, 3 metres of wheelbase. This wheelbase apart from housing three rows of cushy seats can accommodate 550 litres of luggage space and a humungous 3100 litres of space when the rear seats are folded.
In a view to reinforce its off-roading demeanour, the vehicle in seven colour options has been endowed with 283mm of ground clearance and around 3.5 tonne of towing capability. The exterior flaunts imposing looks on account of a broad snout (read radiator grille) with lots of chrome treatment. A body coloured bumper with fog lamps on either side sits pretty at the bottom below two wraparound headlamps with barrel lamps and daytime running lights. The well chiselled body with character lines on the bonnet extending up to the rear embodies sportiness. The sides exude stunning looks with 18 inches multi spoke alloy wheels, body coloured ORVMs, chrome door handles and window sills delineated with chrome.
The modish cabin has advanced infotainment and drivetronics that render driving a pleasure. These features include a satellite navigation system, a Bluetooth based connectivity, a rear parking camera, a 4 spoke leather wrapped steering with mounted controls, front and rear centre arm rests, an electrically operated power glass sunroof, an 8 inches screen at the front, 7 inches screens in the second row for passenger’s entertainment – integrated with DVD player, a climate control system and many more.
As the SUV is expected to travel in rugged terrains, it has been provided with a robust suspension system in the form of a Hydraulic Body Motion Control system, which is suitably geared to absorb shocks encountered on the way. The presence of four driving modes by the name of Multi Surface Selection Technology enables the SUV (at the touch of a button) to traverse on diverse terrains like snow, desert, jungle and normal metalled roads.
Nissan Patrol Engine and Transmission
Both the trims of Nissan Patrol carry inside their hoods a 5.6 litre V8 petrol powertrain garnering 399.62bhp of maximum power and 560Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated with three types of trim based transmission systems – a 7 speed automatic transmission with manual mode, a 5 speed automatic transmission with manual mode, and a 6 speed manual transmission. The transmission system transmits engine torque to all the four wheels.
Nissan Patrol Expected Mileage
As the SUV is primarily meant to generate power, its fuel economy seems to have taken a back seat. Nissan Patrol garners a not-so-great fuel economy of 6.9 Kmpl in standard conditions, which might fall back to around 4 – 5 Kmpl in normal conditions.
Nissan Patrol Expected Price
Nissan Patrol is expected to be made available at a command price range of Rs. 80 lakhs to Rs. 1 Crore.
Nissan Patrol Expected Launch Date
Nissan Patrol is expected to be made available in Indian showrooms between Dec 2016.
