The 2025 Nissan Patrol, known as the Armada in the US, is set to arrive in US showrooms by the end of the year.

An Australian release is expected within 12-18 months.

Nissan Americas Chairperson Jeremie Papin confirmed the US availability by the end of 2024, following a teaser image in March 2024.

This aligns with the Japanese financial year, which runs from 1 April 2024 to 31 March 2025.

The Australian release date is not yet confirmed but is anticipated by mid-2027, possibly earlier based on past launch patterns.

The current Patrol model is Nissan Australia’s third-best selling vehicle and ranks second in the large three-row 4x4 segment behind the Toyota LandCruiser.

The new Patrol is expected to share design elements with the Infiniti QX80, which was previewed in April 2024 and features a more upright design and repositioned details like door handles and grilles.

The QX80 has replaced its 5.6-litre V8 engine with a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6, producing 336kW and 698Nm of torque, paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The Patrol is expected to adopt this V6 engine, offering both rear-wheel and four-wheel drive, and maintaining the same 3500kg braked tow rating.

Initial tests of the QX80 show no significant change in fuel economy compared to the current Patrol’s 14.4L/100km combined rating.

The QX80 also features a stiffer ladder-on-chassis frame and a larger 14.3-inch curved display, along with increased Driver Assistance Technology (DAT) features.

These updates are likely to appear in the new Patrol as well.

In June 2024, Nissan announced a pause in its electric vehicle development, focusing instead on revised marketing strategies and new vehicle launches in North America.

The company aims for a 7.5% increase in global sales by 31 March 2025, following missed targets set under the 'Nissan Next' plan.
