The new 2023 Nissan Patrol will be on the market later this year. This SUV is very popular in the Middle East, while its sibling, Nissan Armada is available in the U.S. From what we know, the new model will introduce a couple of exciting upgrades. However, Nissan will not deliver dramatic change this time.
So, the new Patrol SUV will arrive with a more attractive appearance. Even the cabin will be better, but nothing will change under the hood. New Nismo version is also available and it looks astonishing.
Nissan Patrol Exterior Facelift
The next 2023 Nissan Patrol will look a lot better than it did before. This also means that the Armada SUV in the United States will make the same changes, too. A lot more chrome will be added to the Patrol model, so that’s the first thing. As you know, the 2022MY already arrived with the new headlights and new grille. Because of that, Nissan will now focus on some other exterior parts.
Now, Nissan is going to work on the back of the SUV, so we can expect new LED taillights. This model comes with standard 18-inch alloy wheels. The 20-inch and 22-inch rims will be optional once again. We like the Midnight Edition package as it provides an astonishing appearance with blacked-out features and a sportier vibe.
The upcoming 2023 Nissan Patrol will get a few new things inside the cabin. We think there will be a few changes in technology, but that’s all we need to see. This isn’t a bad thing, because the Patrol SUV will be even safer with the latest driver-assistance features.
We like this SUV because it has a lot of room inside. Patrol is a big model, so it can fit eight people. Speaking of which, the comfort is great, especially with the optional leather seats. Patrol will have an updated infotainment system, as well as a 12.3-inch touchscreen. Still, interior upgrades are minor.
Possible Engine Improvements
As for the performance, the new 2023 Nissan Patrol will continue to offer the same V8 gasoline engine. It is a 5.6-liter engine producing 390 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, many sources are saying that Nissan will provide more power. We don’t think that the Patrol SUV needs more power. It would be better to focus on fuel efficiency and provide better mpg. Anyway, Armada will reportedly develop up to 400 horsepower and a torque of 410 lb-ft, and Patrol will do exactly the same.
A seven-speed automatic transmission remains, which is a good thing. Furthermore, Patrol comes with the standard RWD system and optional AWD setup. A hybrid powertrain is still just a rumor. You can also get the famous Nismo version. It is a sportier high-performance variant.
2023 Nissan Patrol Price, Release Date
The price of the forthcoming 2023 Nissan Patrol will start at $46,000 or slightly above that. The price is not available yet, so this is just a prediction. We expect a small price increase and this model will hit the dealerships in the second half of 2022. As we said, you can get the Patrol model in the United States, where Nissan offers the Armada SUV.
