Manufactured since 1951, the is a Full-Size SUV that is currently in its sixth generation and looks more majestic than ever before. Rivalry between the Patrol and Toyota Land Cruiser is an ongoing one, for the title ‘King of the dunes’.

Looks

When the sixth generation Patrol surfaced back in 2010, there was a bit of a frenzy in the motoring world. Hailed as one of the best off-road vehicles in the region, the Patrol had bid farewell to its rugged exterior and opted for a more elegant and chic facade, making people almost instantly question if it held onto its off-road capability.

Feels

An abundance of leather and a generous amount of wood trim along the dashboard, centre console and door panels, contribute greatly to making the Patrol feel like a premium SUV. With three rows of seating, the Patrol is able to comfortably seat up to 8 individuals with decent legroom even in the last row.

Engineering

A neat feature in the 2015 Nissan Patrol is the reversible open-type cool box that is placed beneath the armrest located between the front seats. With the capacity to store up to six 600ml bottles and the flexibility to open it from the front seats and the back, it’s quite handy.

What’s on offer?

A 5.6 litre V8 is what Nissan has used across the line, but have tuned it specifically to match the needs of the Patrol’s three different variants. The basic XE and SE put out 317 horsepower and 527 Nm of torque through a 6 speed manual transmission and 5 speed automatic respectively. On the other hand, a tweaked version of the same engine belts out 400 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque through a 7 speed transmission in LE guise.

Summing it…

The 2015 Nissan Patrol is not a bad car at all, it looks good from the outside and the inside as well, and is just as capable an off-roader as its predecessors. So what’s wrong with it you ask? Well, firstly it costs between AED 187,000 and AED 332,500 to own one, which is significantly more than the Toyota Land Cruiser, and secondly, with no option of a V6 engine, running costs are higher as well.
