All the major agencies are sure that changes on the 2021 Nissan Patrol will be pasted to its US sibling. The full-size body-on-frame SUV is an important factor in the Asian market, especially in the Pacific area. Buyers in Thailand, Australia, and a few other countries are happy to see this model refreshed for the upcoming season.
Changes are everywhere – at the front fascia, at the back, and inside the vehicle. The only unchanged thing is the engine room, where we find the same options. Of course, the V-Motion grille is the highlight of the exterior styling and the new Patrol is ready to cement its place as one of the best off-road rigs in the Far East.
Designers spent a lot of time on the exterior modifications. The result is the new fascia with a fresh look, more suitable for an SUV. Headlights fit better with the grille, but the split with the C-shaped lamps are something you cannot miss. We already saw this solution on the new Titan truck. Intakes are larger than before, while the fog lights get a new position. The rear end also gets C-shaped lights. There is also the new bumper with a shield plate at the center of the bumper.
2021 Nissan Patrol Interior Changes
Not only outside, but also inside, the 2021 Nissan Patrol suffers some significant updates. For example, we see the new console with more buttons. The carmaker also replaced the touchscreen display. Upper trim levels are using some features we can find on the premium Infiniti brand, also owned by Nissan. Diamond stitches, leather upholstery, multi-zone air conditioning, and advanced safety system are also available.
2021 Nissan Patrol Specs
Under the hood of the base 2021 Nissan Patrol is a 4.0-liter V6 engine. It is capable of producing 275 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. But, you can maximize outputs if you pick a V8 mill. In this case, a 5.6-liter displacement is delivering 400 hp and 415 lb-ft. A seven-speed automatic transmission is paired with both engines. You can also choose between two- and four-wheel drive.
