Nissan Patrol 2022: Ti and Ti-L variants get small updates, $1000 price increase

John Law

2021 saw strong sales in Australia for the Nissan Patrol – and buyers of the new 2022 update will notice a few subtle changes

The 2022 Nissan Patrol large 4WD has been lightly refreshed with several small tweaks and a uniform $1000 price increase across the range, with the base Ti variant now priced at $82,160 before on-road costs.

The Y62 Patrol has been on-sale in Australia since February 2013 and was treated to a comprehensive mid-life update in 2020 that saw updated design and retuned suspension.

The update improves upon the previous facelift in 2020

These latest exterior changes are minor, but lift the Patrol’s appearance to help it compete with the all-new Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series and Land Rover Defender – but you won’t find the revised interior that has been fitted to left-hand drive Patrols overseas for more than 14 months.  

September 2021 was the strongest sales month ever for the Nissan Patrol (700 sales), and in total Australians bought most 3,333 new Patrol wagons in 2021 (according to the FCAI).

The strong sales of 2021 coincided with the Patrol’s 70th birthday, and Nissan Australia managing director Adam Paterson said: “it’s a testament to the Y62 Patrol that its strongest year on record in Australia coincided with the model’s 70th anniversary.”

In the Middle East, the Nissan Patrol is available with a 205kW/394Nm 4.0-litre petrol V6, though in Australia a 298kW/560Nm 5.6-litre petrol V8 and seven-speed automatic transmission is the only option.

Patrols sold in left-hand-drive markets also benefit from a redesigned centre console that features a touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, though Australian right-hand drive cars don’t get the new infotainment system.

How well specified is the Nissan Patrol?

The range begins with the Ti which gets a black-pack for 2022 that features on the front grille and centre part of the fender garnish, while the Nissan logo is now smoked. 

Aside from the exterior treatment, inside the Patrol is unchanged with the carry-over eight-inch touchscreen and navigation, leather-accented eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat (six-way passenger) and keyless entry.

Safety equipment includes a 360-degree camera, forward AEB, adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring. 

The range-topping Ti-L can be identified by its chrome grille up front, though it also gets the new logo and fender trim. 

Inside there are 13-way power adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation, cooled centre bin, sunroof, 13-speaker Bose stereo and a brace of 8.0-inch rear entertainment screens with infra-red headphones.
