Over more than six decades, the Nissan PATROL has built and consolidated its reputation for being “King of the Off-Road” throughout Africa’s unforgiving landscape. Pair this with superior handling on-road, now the Nissan PATROL elevates that coveted reputation even further. The Nissan PATROL takes proven performance, versatility and reliability and ups the ante with superbly sophisticated styling and superior comfort and a host of advanced technologies and safety features.





By combining functionality, versatility and powerful performance with an attractive design, superior styling and refinement, the Nissan PATROL takes sophistication and capability to a whole new level. Nissan PATROL offers the discerning motorist modern bold styling, innovative safety features, highly advanced intelligent technologies, supreme comfort and more.

EXTERIOR DESIGN: A fresh and modern design approach inspired the creation of the impressive exterior. The bold window graphic of the blackened A-pillar, alloy-wheels, as well as the dynamic chrome grille all contribute to Patrol’s undeniable on and off-road presence. The impressive exterior of the Nissan PATROL shields an interior that offers nothing short of first class comfort and style. The designers of the Nissan PATROL have paid significant attention to every detail, large panelled wooden areas, chrome finishes and soft touch leather gives this vehicle a status of sophistication

INTERIOR DESIGN: Nissan Patrol’s mission is to deliver more comfort and more room, the Patrol offers versatile luxury leather seats dimensions that you will be forgiven in thinking that you are inside a private jet instead of inside the  Nissan Patrol. For the driver, and all seven passengers, Nissan Patrol offers immeasurable comfort and space from any seat you choose. Air conditioning system features curtain vents mounted in the ceiling above each side window and upper vents mounted above the windshield. For the ultimate in quiet interior cabin space. The laminated windshield and front windows reduce noise by 35% in the Nissan Patrol.


The Nissan Patrol is no ordinary SUV. Enjoy the home quality feel when you sink into plush leather, climate controlled interior.

SMART REAR VIEW MIRROR: Allows you to see the front of your vehicle without leaving the comfort of your seat.

ADVANCED DRIVER ASSIST DISPLAY: Colour monitor which displays front and rear power ratios, the trip computer and fuel economy and exterior temperatures.

INTELLIGENT KEY: Press the button on the door handle or trunk to unlock them, while the key remains in your pocket.

LEATHER SEATS WITH DRIVER SEAT MEMORY: Two seat settings can be stored including side mirrors and steering column.

COOLER BOX: Built-in cooler box with double hinged design to enable access from first and second row seat and has capacity for six 500ml drinking bottles.

AUTO DUAL ZONE AIR CONDITIONING: Allowing front and rear passengers to personally set the air conditioning to different levels.

THE HYDRAULIC BODY MOTION CONTROL (HBMC): The Suspension system has been implemented to ensure remarkably low body roll when powering through corners and provides better traction through rough terrain. HBMC plays both the role of shock absorbers and stabiliser bars, allowing for full wheel travel, meaning your wheels will stay firmly on the ground even when you’re off the beaten track.

HELICAL LIMITED SLIP AND REAR DIFFERENTIAL LOCK: Allowing the driver to maintain momentum, even on slippery slopes or roads when a wheel is spinning.

INTELLIGENT RIDE CONTROL: Offers 4-wheel independent suspension. Working with the chassis and the body frame the system maximises the suspension stroke on off-road running and prevents roll angle, to maintain flat riding with high damping force at cornering.



From the beginning the Nissan Patrol has been synonymous with power. The 5.6 litre V8 engine offers the ultimate power trip. The DIG technologies improve efficiency, power and torque with lower emissions.

Ready To Take On Any Terrain: Mountains, rivers, storms – there’s really nothing the Nissan Patrol can’t handle. All that’s needed is a confident driver with an adventurous spirit behind the wheel. And a map? Get rid of it. With its Independent Double Wishbone Coil Spring Front and Rear Suspension, Hydraulic Body Motion Control Suspension, and its 34,3 Degrees Approach Angle you won’t need to find a road to get you to your destination. And even if you do by some chance get lost, there is a Satellite Navigation with 3D mapping and 8″ integrated colour display touch screen to help get you back on track.

POWER: With a 5.6-litre V8 petrol engine powering what is to date our biggest SUV, the New Patrol is both willing and able to take you anywhere. No matter if you are cruising the city or turning down the road less travelled, Nissan reliability and raw power lie at the very heart of this Ultra-luxurious SUV. From the moment you engage the push-button engine start, you’ll hear an engine that sounds refined enough for a family SUV, but yet still excels at serious towing and tough off-roading.

TRANSMISSION: The 7-speed VVEL Automatic transmission with manual mode delivers seamless acceleration with 298kW of power and 569Nm of torque.

OFF ROAD CAPABILITY: Conquering the off-roads means roughing through a diverse range of challenging landscapes. Fortunately, The Nissan Patrol is well equipped to tackle any terrain thanks to its advanced technologies, thoughtful design and incredible forethought. The Intelligent 4×4 system ensures the Nissan Patrol will be able to grip the road at all times by transferring power between the wheels and axles. Variable 4X4 Mode allows you to effortlessly switch between four drive modes – sand, on-road, snow and rock – with just the twist of a switch.

STABILITY FOR A SMOOTH RIDE: Hydraulic Body Motion Control maximizes the suspension stroke on off-road running and prevents roll angle to maintain flat riding with high damping force at cornering. This system gives Patrol superb stability on rugged and sandy terrain, while delivering a smooth ride on city streets.



Nissan’s Intelligent Driving is foremost about performance, comfort and safety, removing the stress from a daily commute or minimising the risk of unsafe conditions like Nissan Intelligent Driver Alertness that detects driving behaviour consistent with a drowsy driver and send a warning. Nissan is leading with its Safety Shield technologies like Lane Departure Warning and Forward Emergency Braking, and will advance this leadership into autonomous drive technologies.

INTELLIGENT AROUND VIEW MONITOR: Leaving nothing to chance, the Nissan Patrol comes with Intelligent Around-View Monitor (AVM) allowing drivers to get in and out of tight spots with ease by providing a simulated bird’s eye view directly on screen. Intelligent AVM gives you a virtual 360° bird’s eye view of your vehicle to bring your parking space and manoeuvring capabilities into full perspective.

INTELLIGENT BLIND SPOT WARNING AND BLIND SPOT INTERVENTION: Smart technology like the innovative Intelligent Blind Spot Warning and Blind Spot Intervention system detects vehicles in your blind spot and alerts you via an audible alarm. If you continue to change lanes and the vehicle in your blind spot also continues to proceed, the system will initiate, gently braking one side of the vehicle, bringing your vehicle back to your original lane position, well out of harm’s way.

CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT: Back out of a space more safely. Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns you of a vehicle sneaking up on you when you’re reversing.

INTELLIGENT LANE DEPARTURE WARNING AND LANE DEPARTURE PREVENTION: Intelligent Lane Departure Warning sounds an audible warning when the driver starts to drift out of its lane. With Intelligent Lane Departure Prevention the vehicle gently applies the brake to help ease the vehicle back between the lines.

INTELLIGENT HILL START ASSIST AND HILL DESCENT CONTROL: Intelligent Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control will create a safe and smooth drive to conquer not only the city but any off road terrain too.
