How much does the Nissan Patrol Warrior cost in Australia?


The Patrol’s ultimate form has now been given a hefty price tag which a long list of customers are expected to happily pay

Nissan has finally revealed the full pricing and specification of its Premcar-developed Patrol Warrior, which offers an enhanced level of off-road capability at the tune of $101,160 before on-road costs.

As was initially the case with the Navara Pro-4X Warrior, the Patrol isn’t based on the top-spec Ti-L grade ($97,600) but, instead, it’s based on the entry-level Ti ($84,900).

The Patrol Warrior has been developed by Australian engineering firm Premcar.

As was discovered in Chasing Cars’ first drive of the Patrol Warrior in prototype form, the decision to base the Warrior on the lower grade was made to keep it under two metres in height, a feat not possible with the roof rails equipped on the Ti-L

The Premcar team says it focused on four key factors when engineering the new variant: enhanced capability, visual road presence, the V8 soundtrack and general refinement.

The Warrior is based on the lower of two Patrol grades – the Ti.

In terms of competitors, the Patrol Warrior will compete against a wide set of off-road-focussed vehicles.

Key rivals will include the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series GR Sport ($142,101 before on-road costs), the Land Rover Defender 110 (from $84,350) and perhaps even utes such as the Ford Ranger Raptor ($87,990).

What does the Patrol Warrior include?

Key upgrades include the new body kit, enhanced underbody protection, bi-modal side-exit exhaust, a new suspension setup and a new Alcantara-clad interior trim, which replaces the somewhat polarising fake wood-grain look found elsewhere in the lineup.

In terms of raw numbers, the Warrior sees a 50mm lift thanks to a 29mm increase in suspension height combined with an extra 21mm from the 18-inch alloys and chunky 295/70 Yokohama all-terrain tyres. A GVM upgrade of 120kg has also been applied to the chassis.

Changes to the Warrior strengthen off-roading capability and touring comfort.

The latter will be helpful when making use of the Patrol’s 3.5-tonne towing capacity, which was retained despite the suspension modifications, which include changes to the model’s Hydraulic Body Motion Control system and the addition to front/rear springs and progressive rear bump stops.

With the towbar in place, the Patrol Warrior has a departure angle of 23.3 degrees, while the approach measures a more respectable 40 degrees.

What does the Patrol include in each grade?

The Patrol is perhaps best known for its naturally aspirated 5.6-litre V8 petrol engine which thankfully is fitted as standard across the lineup, making 298kW of power at 5800rpm and 560Nm of torque at 4000rpm.

It’s mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and a full-time four-wheel-drive system with a helical limited-slip differential at the rear.
