The forthcoming Patrol seems poised to showcase a twin-turbo petrol V6, replacing the previous 5.6-litre petrol V8. The revamped V6 is likely to provide enhanced power output, while potentially maintaining or improving upon the current model's fuel efficiency.
From the revealed photos, the Patrol's front-end design appears to have retained a grille reminiscent of its predecessor. However, a distinct change could be the potential division of the LED headlights. This design seems to allocate the main beam towards the bumper's bottom, while positioning the daytime-running lights higher.
This split-headlight design aligns with the aesthetics of the Patrol’s luxury counterpart, the Infiniti QX80. Infiniti has earlier previewed this design in a concept version, with the production model set to be introduced either later this year or in the early part of next year, as per sources from the US.
The North American variant of the Patrol, known as the Armada, might have slight design variations compared to the version available in Australia and other markets.
Upon closer inspection of the new images, the forthcoming Patrol portrays a more defined and boxy structure than its predecessor, emphasizing linear and angular lines.
The interior of the new Patrol is projected to embody the newest design and technological advancements from Nissan, possibly integrating features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the Australian market for the first time.
With respect to performance, the previous 5.6-litre petrol V8 could be replaced by a 3.5-litre twin-turbo petrol V6, potentially generating 318kW, a step up from the current 298kW.
While the launch date for the 2025 Nissan Patrol remains under wraps, the recent influx of images suggests that an official reveal might be scheduled for next year.
