Nissan dealers not mad at curtain-call for Patrol, Micra and Pulsar

It’s a fair question to ask the boss of Nissan in Australia, whether the dealer and service network around the country is a little upset at the prospect of letting go of so many important volume vehicles over the past few years. Those vehicles include the ancient diesel Patrol, the light Micra, and the returned but relatively short-lived Pulsar hatch...

Nissan Patrol Y62 demand outstripping supply

Massive price cuts to the slow-selling Y62 Nissan Patrol in July last year have completely turned around the big car’s fortunes, with demand now outstripping supply despite the continued lack of a diesel engine. As you can read here, Nissan responded to flagging demand for its range-topper last year by re-aligning it with actual transaction prices or, in plain English, slashing up to $27,500 from the RRP because it was discounting them to that price already...

Nissan Pulsar hatch and Micra axed, Patrol diesel in runout

Nissan Australia has axed three of its best-known models — the Micra, Y61 Patrol and Pulsar hatch (not sedan) — in one fell swoop, with stocks to be cleared by the end of 2016.  The trio of former core models are being phased out for different reasons — the Micra business case doesn't stack up financially, the aged Y61/UY61 Patrol is being retired, and the Pulsar hatch’s flagging sales and middling reputation aren’t helping Nissan’s wider cause...

Nissan Patrol: decision looms for Y61 in Australia with tightening emissions laws

Nissan says the future of the iconic Y61 Patrol in Australia is in serious doubt due to tighter emissions regulations coming into effect from November this year. From November 1 this year, all new vehicles sold in Australia will be required to meet stricter Euro 5 emissions requirements...

Nissan Patrol Nismo unveiled in the Middle East

The Nissan Patrol Nismo is the newest – and definitely the most unlikely – model to join the Japanese performance division’s ranks. Nissan took the wraps off the biggest-ever Nismo-enhanced vehicle at a special launch event in Dubai. The unveiling marks the introduction of the Nismo performance division to the Middle East, where the “race-inspired” Patrol will be sold alongside the GT-R Nismo and 370Z Nismo...

Nissan Patrol price slashed, now starts at $69,990

The price of entry into the 2015 Nissan Patrol V8 range has today been slashed by a massive $23,400 as the company pulls out all the stops to shake up slow sales of its flagship SUV. Nissan has been talking about the need to reduce Patrol pricing for some time now, potentially in order to better align the behemoth with actual transaction prices (broadly, what people who buy them have actually been paying)...

Nissan Patrol price cuts due within months

The Nissan Patrol will get a much-needed, sizeable, price cut around the middle of the year at the same time as its luxury arm Infiniti launches its sister model, the QX80. Infiniti’s Patrol-based range flagship will compete in the upper echelons of the large SUV market against the Toyota LandCruiser-based Lexus LX570, which retails for $134,700 plus on-road costs...
