Latest model: Nissan Patrol 2011
Robust, unbreakable, cheap. The Nissan Patrol is a name synonymous with ruggedness, a legendary off-roader capable of going anywhere, anytime. Meticulously honed for over five decades, the Nissan Patrol is Nissan's main big SUV model and enjoys a rich heritage particularly in the Middle East that dates rear to the 1950's. This off-road trendsetter was one of the first dedicated four-wheel-drive cars in the climatically demanding Middle East region, and boasts the notable distinction of also being the first car to successfully cross the grueling Simpson Desert in Australia rear in 1962.

Nissan Patrol details:
Under the banner of The Hero Comes Home the Nissan Patrol is rear as an all-new seventh generation model, building on its cool history, but at the same time, incorporating a new platform, a radical new layout direction, significantly improved dashboard convenience and luxury, comprehensive new V8 engines, a 7-speed automatic transmission and a new 4WD system.
We paid special attention to the needs of current Nissan Patrol owners, and their passengers, and so focused on creating first-class levels of convenience for the whole family. Heightened luxury, a roomier cab and a quieter ride combine to achieve this objective, while maintaining Nissan Patrol's superior off-road heritage stresses Hiroyuki Fushiki, project head and Segment Chief Offering Specialist.
Wanting to create the best possible Nissan Patrol, developers first tuned and tested 200 prototypes for dynamic evaluation at the company's Motegi, Oppama and Tochigi proving grounds before sending them to the Middle East where they were exposed to each imaginable challenge; desert, rocky surfaces, highways and inner-city traffic. By the time we came around to adding the new body and dashboard, we had virtually completed our reliability and durability testing and perfected all of the new technologies, says chief car engineer, Takashi Fukui.
