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...

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...

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

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...
