Nissan Introduces 2022 Patrol NISMO With Race-Inspired Design And Performance
Catering to the region’s sustained appeal for performance and prestige on the road, Nissan has released the new 2022 Nissan Patrol NISMO in the Middle East. The race-inspired version of the legendary Patrol combines a bold exterior design and a technologically advanced interior to offer customers the refinement of a luxury SUV with the thrill of a sports car.
Designed exclusively for customers in the Gulf region, the 2022 Nissan Patrol NISMO makes a statement by embodying Nissan’s design philosophy of being bold, energizing, human and alive. It sports Nissan’s new emblem and a striking NISMO badge on the side fender vent, while the refreshed centre console featuring an all-new 12.3-inch infotainment display offers a more enhanced, connected cabin experience.
Thierry Sabbagh, President of Nissan Saudi Arabia, and Managing Director of Nissan Middle East, said: “The Patrol NISMO has established itself as a coveted SUV in the Middle East, and the ultimate marque of power, luxury and respect. It honours the Patrol’s legacy of conquering every terrain while delivering the exhilarating driving performance that is synonymous with the NISMO brand. The new upgrades reflect our commitment to bringing innovative experiences to our customers. We are confident that the 2022 Patrol NISMO will appeal to those looking for thrill and exclusivity, and will continue to play an important role in maintaining our SUV dominance in the region.”
The distinctive design of the 2022 Patrol NISMO exudes sportiness with aerodynamic inserts, heighted by the signature NISMO red line wrap around the SUV’s base. It reinforces the build of the Patrol V8, with a honeycomb three-dimensional mesh that, along with the new Nissan logo and iconic NISMO emblem, emphasizes the signature V-motion grille to create an imposing presence on the road. The rear maintains symmetry, while accentuating the car’s design lines with dark chrome inserts and new tail lamps to create a more stylish look. It also includes LED rear fog lights inspired by the Formula 1 cars, emitting the same brightness as the car’s brake lights in adverse conditions.
The interiors of the Patrol NISMO’s latest manifestation dials up luxurious comfort while underlining NISMO’s racing heritage. Premium quality seats with crafted quilting, together with a black Alcantara steering wheel, allow for drivers to feel the thrill while cruising the streets. This is balanced with a redesigned centre console, which now features an all-new 12.3-inch infotainment screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as an ergonomically-designed Intelligent Driving dial. While maintaining the essence of the Patrol’s premium and modern design, this real-time reflection can be customized to facilitate drivers to make more informed decisions on the road.
Under the hood, the Patrol NISMO’s V8 engine is tuned to flawlessness by Nissan’s Takumi craftsmen, a group of five master engine builders allowed to hand-build the Nissan GT-R engines – resulting in a concentrated 428hp and a peak torque of 560NM. Bilstein shock absorbers in the SUV’s tuned suspension allow for better handling; while a side duct in the front bumper, roof spoiler and lighter wheels together refine aerodynamics while achieving zero lift force.
The 2022 Nissan Patrol NISMO also features latest Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) technologies including Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Smart Rear View Mirror and High Beam Assist.
The 2022 Nissan Patrol NISMO is now available at Nissan’s partner network across the Middle East including Al Masaood Automobiles in Abu Dhabi, Arabian Automobiles Co. in Dubai, Abdulmohsen Abdulaziz Al Babtain in Kuwait, Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co. in Qatar, Suhail Bahwan Automobiles in Oman and YK AlMoayyed & Sons in Bahrain.
