The debut of the Nissan Patrol 2025 marks the first appearance of the vehicle.

Nissan Teases First New Patrol Since 2010, Expected to Debut Overseas Before Australia

The highly anticipated unveiling of the next generation Nissan Patrol 2025 was teased recently, giving car enthusiasts a glimpse of what to expect from the popular SUV. With a new twin-turbo V6 engine promising more power and better fuel efficiency, the new Patrol is set to make a significant impact in the market. However, Australian fans may have to wait a bit longer, as the release date for the country has not yet been confirmed.

According to reports, the new Nissan Patrol is expected to hit overseas showrooms within the next 12 months, showcasing a sleek and modern design with upgraded features and technologies. The Japanese automaker has confirmed that the 4WD will be introduced in select markets during the Japanese fiscal year 2024, which spans from April 2024 to March 2025.

One of the key highlights of the new Patrol is the switch from a 5.6-liter V8 engine to a twin-turbo V6, providing a power boost of 336kW, as seen in the recently revealed Infiniti QX80 luxury twin. The shift towards a more efficient engine is in line with the industry’s focus on sustainability and reducing emissions.

A preview of Nissan’s upcoming models gave a sneak peek at the new Patrol, featuring tall LED headlights, taillights, and a full-width rear light bar. The design is expected to be more contemporary, drawing inspiration from the Infiniti QX80 but with distinctive features that set it apart.

Spy photos have revealed unique elements of the new Patrol, such as different front wheel arches with vertical vents and traditional pull-type door handles. These design choices contribute to the SUV’s overall aesthetic appeal and set it apart from its predecessors.

The interior of the new Patrol is also expected to receive a modern upgrade, featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for right-hand drive markets. The inclusion of these connectivity options reflects Nissan’s commitment to providing a seamless driving experience for users.

While there have been no official announcements regarding hybrid or plug-in hybrid powertrains for the new Patrol, it is speculated that these options may be explored in future iterations. Nissan executives have indicated that an all-electric version may not be feasible until advancements in solid-state battery technology are made around 2028.

The Nissan Patrol ‘Y63’ will utilize a version of the 3.5-liter twin-turbo petrol V6 from the Infiniti QX80, with potential adjustments to suit the SUV’s performance requirements. More details on the 2025 Nissan Patrol are expected to be revealed closer to its unveiling in late March 2025.

While the anticipation for the new Patrol continues to build, Australian fans may have to exercise patience as the SUV makes its way to international markets before reaching local showrooms. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting new release from Nissan.
