The Nissan Patrol (also known as the Armada) is the parent brand’s global flagship large SUV line. This car was first launched in 1951 and has now gone through 6 generations. However, the last generation of the car was launched 13 years ago in 2010. Despite being facelifted twice in 2014 and 2019, the car has clearly “worn out” and needs an extensive upgrade to compete with Toyota. Land Cruiser 300 Series.
According to Ivan Espinosa, Nissan’s director of global product planning and strategy, who shared with the international press attending the Japan Mobility Show 2023, the new generation of Nissan Patrol will launch in 2024.
With significant improvements in performance and technology, leaders consider the Nissan Patrol 2025 to be significantly superior to its direct rival, the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series.
The transmission array of the Nissan Patrol 2025 is clearly upgraded compared to before, switching from a V8 engine to a more fuel-efficient but equally powerful twin-turbo V6. The new version promises power, torque, acceleration… all better than its predecessor launched in 2010 (at that time it had 400 horsepower, 560Nm of torque).
However, at the time of launch, there will be no diesel or electrified version of the Nissan Patrol 2025. The Nissan leader left open the possibility of adding a hybrid configuration to the Nissan Patrol 2025 in the future, saying the company needs to consider the market.
However, he also confirmed that a fully electric version will definitely not be coming. He explained the reason for this is that the Nissan Patrol 2025 segment is aimed at multi-terrain/heavy SUVs. Current electric vehicles are not capable of effective long distance travel and they also have inadequate towing/loading parameters to meet the requirements.
The Nissan Patrol 2025 chassis is still a separate body frame to optimize performance to meet the above requirements. However, this platform will be upgraded to bring an impressive driving experience from feedback, agility to steering precision.
The interior of the car has committed to a comprehensive upgrade in terms of comfort, equipment and technology. The only area mentioned by the Nissan leader was the exterior, although this area was revealed by a Nissan dealer who previewed the concept as “looking like a Range Rover”.
