We took the 2018 Nissan Patrol Platinum edition from Bustami & Saheb Trading Co. the official and only distributor for Nissan Cars in Jordan www.nissan.com.jo for a weekend in the streets of Jordan, to discover the main rival for the Toyota Land Cruiser.
The Nissan Patrol Platinum edition is one of the most luxurious and powerful models in its class, powered by a 5.6 liter V8 engine with a 400 hp and 560 N.m of torque to all four wheel through a 7-speed automatic transmission with different driving modes, which can to take you through any road easily.
What’s new for the exterior for the 2018 is a new bumper, fog lights and grill.
The Patrol offers a very comfort ride and if you love driving like us you will love the patrol even more, as the V8 engine sounds like a sport car while accelerating, taking in consideration that the Patrol is not made to be a sport SUV but overtaking is easy and it is very quick and it has a strong performance thanks to the 400 hp.
Steering wheel is light and very smooth and you feel you connected to the road well it offers a good feeling and sharp ride, on tarmac roads the Patrol is very grip and the 5.1 meters SUV is balanced and feels confidence at high speed.
