Nissan hasn’t made any changes to its Patrol for 2023, though later in the year it will bolster its full-sized SUV range with a more rugged Warrior variant.
UPDATE, 13/08/2023 – Nissan Australia has upped pricing of the Patrol by up to $2740.
“Many challenges facing the industry globally, including the rising costs of raw materials and shipping have had a knock-on effect on vehicle pricing, however Nissan is working hard to ensure that we continue to offer the best value proposition for our customers,” said a Nissan Australia spokesperson.
Development started in September last year and is expected to last 12 months according to Nissan Australia’s managing director Adam Paterson.
The Warrior will be locally tuned and receive wheel, tyre, and suspension upgrades but the 298kW/560Nm 5.6-litre V8 engine will remain the same.
The Nissan Patrol range currently opens with the Ti at $84,900 before on-road costs, with the flagship Ti-L priced at $97,600 before on-road costs.
Nissan offer customers six capped-priced services, however the pricing has increased since last year by between $59 to $125 per service.
The current Y62 generation was launched in Australia in 2013 and had a major refresh in 2020 which saw a fresh new look, more safety technology and revised suspension tuning.
But the right-hand drive model continues to miss out on an updated interior introduced on the left-hand drive Patrol/Armada, which includes a 12.3-inch tablet-style infotainment touchscreen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Nissan Australia says there are no plans to give the local model the updated interior, which persists with a smaller 8.0-inch screen and no smartphone mirroring.
The carmaker sold 5724 examples of its Patrol in Australia last year, though again it was outsold by the Toyota Landcruiser wagon range, of which 13,152 units were delivered over the year.
