2022 Nissan Patrol Ever So Slightly Updated In Australia After Sales Jump Last Year

The Y62-generation Nissan Patrol has been subtlety updated for the 2022 model year in Australia on the back of growing sales.

Two versions of the 2022 Patrol are available for local buyers: the Ti and Ti-L. Alterations are subtle and for the Ti, the new model year brings with it a black grille, Nissan’s updated brand emblem, and revised front fender vents. Nissan has then equipped the flagship Ti-L model with the same updated front fender vents and brand emblem while it retains a chrome-stalled grille.

Both variants of the Patrol come standard with the same 5.6-liter naturally aspirated petrol V8 offering up 400 hp (298 kW) and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm) of torque. This engine is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and an intelligent 4×4 system to ensure the Patrol has traction in even the toughest conditions.

Local pricing for the Nissan Patrol Ti starts at AU$82,160 ($58,608) while the Ti-L is available from AU$95,115 ($67,850). A number of additional features help to justify the price discrepancy between the two.

For example, the Patrol Ti-L is a seven-seater and includes a driver’s seat with a memory function. It also adds a first-row center console cool box, a 13-speaker Bose audio system, two second-row 8-inch entertainment screens with headphones and remote control, an Intelligent Rear View Monitor, a puddle illumination light, a power-operated tailgate, roof rails, a sunroof, heated and cooled front seats, and a tilt and telescopic electronically adjustable steering column.

Last year proved to be the best in terms of sales for the Patrol in Australia since 2008. September was the best month ever recorded for the Patrol with 612 units being sold.

“The Nissan Patrol has always been a legendary vehicle in Australia, and that legendary status only increased in 2021,” Nissan Australia managing director Adam Paterson said in a statement. “It’s a testament to the Y62 Patrol that its strongest year on record in Australia coincided with the model’s 70th anniversary, which proves the Patrol is only getting better and more popular with each new variant. The MY22 Patrol furthers the story in Australia, as the fan base for this legendary vehicle continues to grow.”
