Although Patrol is a built with luxurious interiors it is a true 4×4 at heart. The monstrous 5.6L V8 DOHC gasoline engine distributes significant power onto Patrol’s 20” wheels enabling it to gracefully dominate any terrain. This engine pumps a stunning 400HP and is mated with a 7-speed automatic or optional 6-speed manual transmission. The swift reaction of Patrol comes form its Direct Fuel Injection System (DIG). For the suspension, Nissan’s HBMC (Hydraulic Body Motion Control) System provides a firm grip on the ground with a high ground clearance which helps in off-roading. With the help of Locking Rear Differential, torque is evenly distributed on the rear wheels easily pulling the SUV out of loose sand or mud. Without a doubt, Patrol 2012 rightfully carries forward its legacy of a dominant off-roader.
