New 2018 Nissan Patrol

Special

Nissan’s flagship four-wheel-drive, a 2.75 tonne totem to “bigger is better” thinking that touches just about every element of the Patrol.  New 2018 Nissan Patrol

How much does it cost and what do you get? New 2018 Nissan Patrol

We’re pedalling the top-end Patrol Ti-L, which sits at the top of a two-tier range. Priced from $88,900 as part of range restructure in 2017, the model is $25,590 cheaper than what it cost in 2015, thanks to the addition of a mechanically similar Infiniti QX80 atop the luxury brand’s range.

You get plenty of gear for the money, including heated and cooled leather front seats with a driver’s memory function, an 80inch front touchscreen with sat nav and twin headrest-mounted 8-inch rear displays, smart keys, a powered tailgate, 360 degree camera and more. New 2018 Nissan Patrol

The dash and stereo lack modern touches such as a digital speedo or Apple CarPlay, though its 13-speaker Bose stereo packs a fair amount of wallop. Niceties include an electric sunroof, 18-inch alloys with multi-purpose tyres, a variable-mode all-wheel-drive system and a digital “intelligent rear view” monitor mounted in the driver’s mirror. Operated by the sort of mechanical lever you might normally use to use a dipped mirror for night driving, the digital screen offers a clear view of the road behind unimpeded by passengers or cargo in the back.

 

Nissan supports the car with a three-year, 100,000 kilometre warranty and servicing is due every six months or 10,000 kilometres. Capped price servicing for the first 60,000 kilometres of ownership runs to $3220, averaging out at $608 per service across six years or 120,000 kilometres. New 2018 Nissan Patrol

What’s under the bonnet? New 2018 Nissan Patrol

Arguably the best and worst element of this car, the Patrol is powered by a petrol-fuelled 5.6-litre V8 that sends 298kW and 560Nm to all four wheel through a seven-speed automatic transmission with a proper low range mode.

The motor is magnificent, offering immense pulling power from low in the rev range all the way to the top of the tacho. Sweet and sonorous, the engine feels as though it should be in a sports sedan or muscle car as opposed to a seven-seat SUV, rumbling away with a pleasing bellow under load.

Low gearing helps the Patrol leap away from the lights with spritely initial acceleration you wouldn’t expect from such a big car, aided by an absence of lag from the engine or its smooth transmission. Over-driven sixth and seventh gears keep it quiet on the highway, and a rotary controller for the drive system makes it easy to pop the Patrol into off-road modes. New 2018 Nissan Patrol

The catch is that it is a seriously thirsty engine, drinking a claimed 14.4L/100km of premium unleaded that worked out closer to 18.5L/100km in our time with the car. Slurping through its 140-litre fuel tank with the sort of enthusiasm normally reserved for the footy sheds on Mad Monday, the Patrol will have you well acquainted with your local service station. And the one on the way to work, as well as the servo around the corner from the kids’ school and sporting venues.

Filling an empty tank costs more than $200, and you’ll be doing it more frequently than turbo diesel rivals such as the Toyota LandCruiser that offer an additional 500 kilometres of range. New 2018 Nissan Patrol
