The 2013 Nissan Patrol will go on sale in February next year with a starting price of $82,200.

The humongous new-generation Y62 Nissan Patrol, which we first drove back in 2010, has been on sale in numerous markets for a number of years but had been unavailable locally due to limited right-hand drive demand.

It took Nissan Australia to almost single-handedly pay the entire bill for the Patrol’s right-hand drive conversion program to bring the iconic model to our market.

Available with a petrol engine only, the new Y62 Nissan Patrol will not replace the current Y61, but rather be sold alongside the previous model – which has been on sale for almost 15 years – due to its popularity and availability of diesel power.

Although more than capable, the new Nissan Patrol is not exactly the sort of SUV buyers would choose just for off-roading purposes. It’s more of a luxury super-SUV than a rugged off-roader. It gains Nissan’s powerful 5.6-litre V8 engine – the basis for Nissan’s 2013 V8 supercars entry – with 298kW of power and 560Nm of torque, coupled to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Together the powertrain uses roughtly 14.5 litres of fuel per 100km.

Nissan Australia will bring in three grades of the Patrol, with prices ranging from $82,200 to $113,900. Although many Patrol fanatics placed preorders for the car long ago, the company expects the new vehicle to attract mostly male buyers ranging in age from 35-64 years-old but predominantly 45-years and over.

The Nissan Patrol will be on display at the Sydney motor show. Check out the photo gallery for more images.
