2020 Nissan Patrol Ti review

The Nissan Patrol might be petrol only, but it's not quite as thirsty as you might think, and it offers a level of luxury and value that not even the 200 Series can compete with.

2019 Nissan Patrol Ti-L review

It doesn't sell nearly as well as the LandCruiser, but the Patrol still makes a strong case.

2019 Nissan Patrol Ti-L review

The Y62 Patrol's sales may pale in comparison to the Toyota LandCruiser 200, but all that tells us is how underrated and supply-constrained the big Nissan is. It's a bloody capable luxury 4x4 at a very reasonable price.

Surfing safari in the 2017 Nissan Patrol Ti

When I conjure up images of Nissan Patrols, I imagine them alongside Toyota LandCruisers of old, expanding the boundaries of our great island nation every which way. As I was growing up, they were almost mentioned in the same sentence and were the only options for serious off-roaders. The Patrol's appearance was boxy, functional and unashamedly agricultural...

2019 Nissan Patrol Ti-L v Toyota LandCruiser GXL comparison

Do you dream of weekends away at campsites, but still need to move seven humans in relative comfort? Then, it's these two big SUVs that are likely to be atop your list. But, which is better? Paul Maric finds out.

Family 4x4 SUV Comparison: Ford Everest v Isuzu MU-X v Mitsubishi Pajero Sport v Toyota Fortuner v Nissan Patrol

The current-day SUV boom isn’t all about softer, more car-like high-riding options designed with little more than a school run in mind. For many buyers out there, a family 4x4 still needs to be a proper off-roader, a tough-as-nails workhorse that blends a modicum of urban comfort with proper skills off the beaten path and has the ability to confidently and consistently tow loads...

Nissan Patrol v Toyota LandCruiser Comparison

The traditional off-road battleground in the 'Large SUV' segment (which has now morphed into 'Upper Large SUV', believe it or not) has, for decades now, boiled down to a two-way stoush between the Toyota LandCruiser and Nissan Patrol. It's been quite some time though since Nissan fans have been able to enter the battle on even terms...

2013 Nissan Patrol Ti-L (4x4) Review

My y62 is my 4th Patrol and best yet! 15L/100 average. This is the first question asked by anyone is how I like it, yes it is large and not carpark friendly, I would not recommend it for weekly shopping trips around town, but put it in the country where it belongs and you have a very comfortable and capable vehicle...

2001 Nissan Patrol Ti (4x4) Review

I am a 18 year old boy living in Melbourne and the very proud owner of a 2001 Patrol. I brought this 2 years ago with 50,000kms on the clock. I decided I was going to try beef it up to be the ultimate off roader. With a huge 4.8L V8 diesel, it not shy with the performance. It gets me out of most tricky situations with ease...

2014 Nissan Patrol ST-L (4x4) Review

Having compared the new ST-L Y62 to the 200 series equivalent GXL (The VX model cruiser is closer spec'd to the Y62 Ti, and Sahara to the Ti-L. This to give you a more accurate price comparison. Unlike the official review that compares a GXL to a Ti). 1st. Everyone bangs on about fuel economy. Well the cruiser is probably the only vehicle you would compare to a Y62...

2005 Nissan Patrol Review

Ok so let's get the bad points out of the way straight up. The Y61 Nissan Patrol neither feels like a car or four wheel drive to drive. This thing is a truck - and I can tell you from experience that as far as trucks go I would much prefer to spend twelve hours behind the wheel of a T950 Kenworth pulling 24 tonnes than negotiate a peak hour drive across town in the GU...
