A comprehensive review of the Nissan Patrol SUV

Nissan Patrol SUV pricing

Refreshingly for a model range, there are just two Patrols to choose from. They are the entry-level Ti (it feels unfair calling it entry-grade when the Ti has such a high spec to start with) and the Ti-L.

Nissan Patrol Ti

Unlike its arch rival, the all-purpose LandCruiser 200, Nissan no longer offers a workhorse spec, off-road SUV. This is most evident when you find out Nissan lavishes the Patrol with a colossus 5.6-litre petrol V8 (the only engine on offer) and leather-accented seat, steering wheel and shift lever trimmings. The interior also possesses remote keyless entry, push-button start, seats for eight, 8-way power adjustable driver and front passenger seats, a manual tilt steering wheel, tri-zone climate control with second-row controls, cruise control, sat nav and an 8" touch display, traffic monitoring, off-road monitoring, Bluetooth audio streaming, six speakers, parking sensors (front and rear), around view with moving object detection, hill descent control and a terrain mode selector. It's fair to say that Nissan has tricked out the Patrol.

You're probably thinking, "So the Patrol is more expensive than a LandCruiser GX?". Surprisingly, the Ti Patrol carries an $80,153 driveaway price. Even the off-road spec GX LandCruiser 200, which is the cheapest in the range, sells for $85,082. That means you'll have almost 5 grand left for off-road mods if you buy a Nissan Patrol and still have the benefit of all the neat extras and passenger comforts.

Nissan Patrol Ti-L

If you're after even more trimmings and don't mind losing the eighth seat, Nissan gives you the option to purchase the Ti-L Patrol for $98,003. This model is very high-end, adding driver's seat position memory, an electronically adjusting steering column, tri-zone climate control with intelligent key memory (a way of remembering the last used settings by an occupant), and Nissan also integrates two 8" entertainment screens with headphones and a remote control, plus the sound system gets overhauled to a 13-speaker premium set-up from Bose. In between the driver and front passenger seats, there's a cool box, an alarm system that monitors the bonnet, a powerlifting tailgate, automatic headlamp levelling, xenon headlights with washers and a puddle illumination light.

If that wasn't enough, Ti-L models also feature a suite of advanced safety assists, including:

  • Intelligent Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Intelligent Distance Control
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Intelligent Lane Intervention
  • Intelligent Brake Assist

Overview

There are just a few common gripes that the press spout, mainly the lack of a diesel donk and poor fuel economy. Also, a number of reviewers took a dislike to the woodgrain and chrome-accented interior. But a Patrol offers excellent value for money, even when you factor in your increased fuel bill thanks to the burly petrol V8. If the Patrol was still available as a diesel, Toyota would be looking over the shoulders with a worried expression.

"The sheer size and accommodation on offer instantly wins you over. If you really do need interior space (or simply enjoy space) the Patrol is a vehicle you should consider. And with that awesome V8 motor it is surprisingly enjoyable to take for a spin on a Sunday morning."

Engine and performance

The engine Nissan bolts into a Patrol is an absolute beast. It's a V8 with a 5.6-litre displacement. Maximum power thumps in at 5,800 rpm, measuring 298kW. Max torque is an impressive 560Nm@4,000 revs. Nissan used a relative of this engine to propel its Altima V8 Supercars. It's rare (or utterly unheard of) that a chunky 4x4 SUV shares an engine with a racing car.

Translating the engine's energy to the road is a seven-speed automatic transmission, with a manual override mode. The Patrol still has the obligatory high-low transfer case for tackling rough terrain.

Car reviewers' impressions of the Nissan Patrol engine and gearbox combo

Broadly, journalists were bamboozled by the lack of diesel option for this mammoth 4x4. This is one area that most of the reviewers we referenced found the Patrol to be lacking. That's not to say the big V8 is bad, it's just nowadays consumers lean towards lower consumption, higher torque turbo diesel engines.

The power plant did win over experts though. It seems a good number were blown away by the performance of the Patrol, which tips the scale over 2,700kg unladen. Despite its bloaty mass, one reviewer said they sped from 0-100km/h in around seven seconds. That's brisk!

The spirited V8 is also lovely and smooth. Journalists remarked how noise-free it is too, although some found it resembled the noise of a V8 Supercar. Needless to say, with all that power, overtakes aren't particularly pressing. Another journo said it was their favourite thing about the Patrol.

An awesome motor can be totally ruined if it's paired with a middle-of-the-road gearbox. Reviewers described the seven-speed auto as holding gears nicely and making logical shifts.

It transpires Nissan's V8 is well-rated, but we have to address the elephant in the room: fuel economy. Scroll down to see the full figures.

Fuel Efficiency

We must, of course, talk about fuel economy. This was really the only criticism that testers had with the V8.
According to the Green Vehicle Guide, the 5.6-litre V8 will use:

  • Combined: 14.4L/100km
  • Urban: 20.2L/100km
  • Extra-urban: 11L/100km

Based on those numbers, the Green Vehicle Guide calculates the yearly petrol bill for a Patrol covering 14,000km per year (66% urban conditions) to be a not inconsiderable $3,704.

The true extent of the Patrol's fuel use is revealed when you consider that the factory figures are produced from an ADR 81/02 test. This evaluation is great for quantifying fuel use and allowing an even comparison between different models and car brands, but due to the strictly controlled conditions of the test, it doesn't reflect real-world fuel economy. On public roads, you have traffic, weather, vehicle maintenance and wear and load conditions to throw into the mix.

What kind of fuel consumption did the reviewers report? Unusually, some automotive experts managed to better the brochure figures, something that rarely happens. Still, because the Patrol has a 140-litre fuel tank (the average bath has a 180-litre capacity) and a minimum 95 RON requirement, you'll be easily spending $200 per tank at today's national averages.

Handling

Once again, it seems that Nissan has managed to pleasantly surprise discerning motoring journalists. One reviewer said the Patrol defied logic considering how good it is on the road. Even when really pushing the Patrol in corners, the press were stunned by its well-controlled body roll. Like the LandCruiser, Nissan engineers use a hydraulic body control system which is shown in the video below.

Combine this automated suspension set-up with all-around double wishbones and it seems the Patrol is unexpectedly supple, considering its gargantuan proportions and weight. The flexible dampers do a good job of ironing out road imperfections and undulations. Apparently, even the steering delivers a pleasant surprise, with only a little effort required to change direction.

Something that will not shock you though, is the Patrol can be a handful in towns and confined car parks. It sounds like the journos felt more like they were at the helm of an oil tanker than a car when negotiating cramped spaces. Obviously, this is something you'll need to take into consideration if you're looking into buying a Patrol, but these are common sacrifices that have to be made to have a luxurious, spacious 4x4 with seats for at least seven.

Fortunately, Nissan pre-empted parking difficulties, giving both Ti and Ti-L models forward and rearward parking sensors in addition to an intelligent around view monitor. It no doubt helps that the front end of the Patrol is shaped like a slab, meaning the bumper protrudes minimally beyond the profile of the bonnet.

Interior and features

The interior of the Nissan Patrol, like the LandCruiser, is probably bigger than many people's bathrooms. It's huge. Journalists were struck by the sheer size. However, the Patrol has a very comfortable cabin, thanks to large front seats that one tester likened to captain's chairs. Base model Ti Patrols have eight seats, though most commenters thought that things would be a little cramped with eight passengers. Thanks to the generous internal dimensions, it was noted you'll have plenty of head/shoulder/elbow/leg and foot room. As per usual, the third-row seats don't offer an abundance of room, making them best suited for people of a shorter stature.

As you'd imagine for a high-end 4x4, road noise and vibrations are kept to a minimum. All Patrols come with a leather accented interior and a massive 8-inch touchscreen system. Unfortunately, most of the reviews we examined indicated the interior styling was a bit outdated. This may not bother you. One journo likened it to a 1990s American boardroom, with hints of wood and chrome spread around the cabin.

Ti

Ti models sell for $80,153 driveaway. Although the cheapest Patrol Nissan builds, they certainly aren't lacking in features. For a start, you get keyless entry, seating for eight, leather upholstery, power adjustable driver and passenger seats, tri-zone climate control with second-row vents, cruise control, sat nav, an 8" touchscreen display, off-road monitor, an audio system with six speakers and support for CD/DVDs, AM/FM radio, MP3 compatibility, USB/iPod input and Bluetooth audio streaming. The steering wheel has audio controls and the Patrol also has a Bluetooth hands-free phone system, again with buttons on the wheel.

Ti-L

Nissan's PR team gave car reviewers the top-spec Ti-L to test. While this model does carry a higher price, around $98,628 driveaway, it also improves on and adds to the Ti base trim.

For example, Ti-L models boast a two-setting driver's seat memory (including the door mirrors and steering column), a power adjusting (for tilt and reach) steering column, the tri-zone climate control has a memory, rear passengers can watch one of two 8" rear entertainment screens and the audio system is upgraded to a 13-speaker package from Bose. You'll also get a first-row centre console cool box fitted in your Ti-L Patrol and a very clever screen built into the rearview mirror, allowing you to "see through" a fully loaded boot. Speaking of the rear tailgate, Nissan adds a mechanism to power open and close the boot lid. The standard halogen headlamps are switched for high-power xenon units, complete with washers. To stop you accidentally exiting and standing in a puddle, the Ti-L has courtesy lights built into the doors.

Finally, the Ti-L has a suite of smart driver assists including intelligent cruise control, a forward collision warning, intelligent distance control, lane departure alerts, lane intervention, blind spot warning, blind spot intervention and braking assist.

Off-road

On the outside, the Nissan Patrol appears to be a mild-mannered, premium SUV. But, you should never judge anything on looks. Nissan has engineered the Patrol to be nigh-on unstoppable. And flicking through the specs, it actually betters its arch-enemy the LandCruiser in many areas. For example, a LandCruiser 200 has a highly usable 8.8-inches of ground clearance. Nissan lists the Y62 Patrol as having a ridiculous 10.7-inches. On rough terrain, this can mean the difference between getting stranded on a hump or easily straddling a rocky outcrop.

Having all four corners work independently helps keep the Patrol steady and stable, even on heavily undulating ground and journalists noticed this. On paper, it has everything a good 4x4 should have, a decent wading depth, rear locking diff, high ground clearance, low-range transmission, hill-descent and a terrain response traction control module. On loose, rocky and muddy surfaces, it seems that testers thought the Patrol was nearly unstoppable.

It's a little different to the LandCruiser 200 (the LC200 uses a more traditional configuration, with a mechanical centre diff and solid rear axle) but it certainly gets the job done and takes you where you need to go.

Verdict

The sales figures don't really do the Y62 Patrol justice. It's far better equipped than its longtime sparring partner, the LC200, while it also represents drastically better value for money. Even factoring in the increased fuel use, it still makes a lot of sense.

Buyers probably take a look at the spec sheet, see you can only get the whopping 5.6-litre V8 petrol and then immediately head to buy a diesel LandCruiser. If you're looking to drop $80,000-$100,000 on a 4x4 SUV with seven or eight seats, at least look at the Patrol. It'll give you a good point of reference and you may find you actually prefer its offerings.
