If we can trust the latest reports, it looks like the 2019 Nissan Patrol is about to get a mild update. The iconic SUV has been around for many many years. Since 1951, we have seen numerous version of this SUV, which established itself as one of the most capable off-road vehicles around. We have no doubt that its rivalry will continue their upcoming years.
For the next year, the company will probably introduce a few visual novelties. The current generation is present since 2010, so every update is more than welcome. Besides new visual details, it has also been rumored that 2019 Patrol can get a diesel engine, finally. In other aspects, this SUV should continue without bigger changes, featuring same chassis and overall construction, as well as a similar list of standard equipment. Expect new model to arrive by the end of the year.
2019 Nissan Patrol Changes
When it comes to 2019 Nissan Patrol changes, we are about to see a mild facelift, according to several reports. This sounds very possible, especially if we consider that the current generation is present since 2010. These tweaks will make the SUV a little bit fresher and should prolong the redesign for a year or two. So, what kind of changes we could expect. Most likely, these modifications will be minimal. We doubt that there will be some serious headlight reshaping or something like that. On the other side, the 2019 Nissan Patrol could get a new front fascia and maybe few novelties on the bumper. Rest of the vehicle should continue in the same way.
On the inside, the 2019 Nissan Patrol will continue in the same way. We probably won’t see any change in terms of interior design, but few novelties in terms of standard features seem possible.
Which safety features Nissan Patrol offers?
This SUV has a lot of safety and driver-assist features in the offer. One of the highlights would be Hydraulic Body Motion Control. This system minimizes body roll when cornering, which is highly beneficial not just in terms of safety but also provides much better comfort. There is also a variable 4×4 mode, which allows choosing four drive modes. Those are sand, on-road, rock and snow. Also, there are things like electronic-locking rear differential, hill start and hill descent control, lane departure warning, computer-assisted braking and stability control etc.
2019 Nissan Patrol Could Get a Diesel Engine
One of the most important novelties could be a diesel engine. The current generation of this SUV is not available with oil-burner, unlike the previous version. According to rumors, the 2019 Nissan Patrol diesel will come with a large and capable V8 engine from Cummins. This engine has a displacement of 5.0 liters and delivers around 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque. With such numbers, we can expect better towing capability compared to gasoline engines, as well as the better economy.
On the other side, gasoline units will remain the same. Base models come with a familiar 4.0-liter V6, which is good for about 275 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque.
An optional 5.6-liter V8 engine is well-known for its capabilities. In this SUV, it comes in a version that delivers 400 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is 2019 Nissan Patrol Nismo. This model features the same 5.6-liter V8 unit, but gets an additional 28 horses, so a max output goes up to 428 horsepower.
2019 Nissan Patrol Release Date
When it comes to 2019 Nissan Patrol release date, we don’t expect any arrival earlier than usual. It should come somewhere late in the year.
How much will 2019 Nissan Patrol cost?
The 2019 Nissan Patrol should keep the same price, which varies from market to market. Usually, it goes around 70.000 dollars.
