Japanese car producer Nissan Motor Corporation introduced full-size SUV called Nissan Patrol in 1951. This is legendary car with long history and can be compared to only Nissan Pickup. Nissan Patrol has always been unique with excellent maneuverability, impressive size and of course, power.
At the end of 1979, Nissan released a completely new all-wheel-drive SUV Nissan Patrol, which has become the most popular among all existing generations. It was called Nissan Patrol 160 series. In 1980, this car was introduced in Europe, specifically, at the Paris Auto Show in France. Body design and power units were modernized: instead of old square compartment appeared the same form, but it is quite modern frame with square lens in three and five-door versions. In Japan, Nissan Patrol was powered by 2.8, 3.0, and 2.8-litre petrol engines. In 1981, new Nissan Petrol was started its sale with shortened wheelbase, equipped with 3.3 liter 6-cylinder diesel motor rated at 95 HP.
Today, you can see the latest generation of Nissan Patrol on market, it is the seventh and is called Nissan Petrol Y62. This model's power unit is only 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine with an output of 400 HP and it is based on 7-speed automatic gearbox, all-wheel-drive system. Maximum speed is 210 km/h and in order to accelerate to 100 km/h, it takes 6.6 seconds. We should not forget that Nissan Patrol is still full-size all-wheel drive SUV with mass of 2745 kg, so it is neither hatchback nor sedan. Therefore, 6.6 seconds for such giant car is pretty good result. By purchasing , you will get sport utility vehicle that can overcome any, even the most impossible ways. It is extremely fast, powerful and fully-equipped model.
