Nissan Finally Teases 2022 Patrol

UPDATE: The refreshed Nissan Patrol is launching on December 10.

It took three years, but Nissan Philippines is almost ready to launch the updated Patrol. Likely to arrive before the year closes, the 2022 Patrol brings much needed updates to keep it competitive in the lucrative luxury SUV segment.

Signature design changes for the 2022 Patrol include Nissan’s V-motion grille, interpreted in a new way for SUVs. Along with the new multi-piece boomerang-shaped LED headlights, the redesigned grille highlights the Patrol’s strong, angular front. It also happens to integrate the new Nissan logo.

At the rear, the Patrol’s new taillights also sport the boomerang shape. They are seamlessly integrated along with a large chrome nameplate and sequential rear turn indicators, which have been added for the first time on a Nissan vehicle.

Nissan has kept mechanical details under wraps, but on the teaser website, a V8 badge can be easily made out on the front fenders. With that, expect the 2022 Patrol to carry over the 5.6-liter V8 that produces a stout 400 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque. An All All-Mode 4x4 system along with its innovative Hydraulic Body Motion Control gives it excellent on- and off-road handling and comfort.

Inside, 2022 Patrol incorporates a new center console. The large center screen supports dual displays as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other obvious features found in the teaser site include dual zone climate control, heated/ventilated seats, and a 7-inch LCD screen nestled between the analog speedometer and tachometer. Although the seats weren’t shown, the Patrol is expected to gain diamond-stitch quilted leather seats (ala the Terra).

The new Nissan Patrol is also expected to carry an extensive suite of advanced safety and security technologies. In addition to the Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies already available, the new Patrol comes with Intelligent Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection and the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning system.

The wait will not be long because the refreshed luxury SUV is finally dropping in on December 10. Are you excited for the new Nissan Patrol?
