Nissan Details All-New 2025 Patrol's* Engine, Chassis Tech

After teasing its imminent arrival on March 20, Nissan has now revealed more details surrounding the all-new 2025 Patrol / Infiniti QX80’s powertrain.

Nissan (and Infiniti’s) full-sized SUV will offer a powertrain that truly empowers the driver. Dropping its normally-aspirated 5.6-liter V8, Nissan has opted to shoehorn in a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 in its place. The VR35DDT is rated at 450 horsepower and 712 Nm of torque—an increase of around 50 horsepower and 138 Nm from before. The new engine is complemented by a 9-speed automatic with a 40 percent wider gear range, allowing for both responsive acceleration and efficient highway cruising. And, at highway speeds, the 2025 Patrol / Infiniti QX80 shuts its active grille shutters to reduce aerodynamic drag and aid fuel consumption.

All in all, the new powertrain is projected to deliver improved acceleration and greater fuel economy than the outgoing V8.

In terms of the body, the Patrol / QX80 features greater torsional rigidity that contributes to a significantly quieter cabin. On higher-end models (and likely an Infiniti exclusive), it also has electronic air suspension and “Dynamic Digital Suspension” that adapts the SUV to every driving situation. For example, the air suspension automatically lowers when the vehicle is parked to make it easier to enter, load, or unload luggage. Meanwhile, Dynamic Digital Suspension constantly evaluates the vehicle's motions to reduce body motion, enhancing driver confidence and ensuring passenger comfort over long journeys.

The all-new 2025 Infiniti QX80 makes its debut this March 20 first with the all-new Nissan Patrol expected to follow soon thereafter.
