Nissan has lowered the starting price of the Patrol lineup in Australia.
According to the car manufacturer, the cheapest version of the 2015 Nissan Patrol V8, the Ti, is now available from 69,990 AUD. This is significantly less than before, when it used to set its customers back for 93,390 AUD so if you have recently ordered one, you will definitely not receive this article as a good news. The Patrol V8 Ti-L has also lowered its price from the previous 114,490 AUD to 86,990 AUD. The ST-L previous entry-level model has been discontinued but this used to come in from 82,690 AUD, plus the on-road charge. However, the new Patrol Ti is in its 8-seater version.
Nissan has managed to undercut its main rival, the Toyota Land Cruiser, with the slashing of the pricing list on the Patrol. The Land Cruiser is 80,990 AUD on the entry-level GXL, it goes up to 90,990 AUD on the mid-range VX and the range-topping Sahara costs 110,990 AUD. Standard features found on the vehicle include the Off-Road Monitor, the tire slip and tire pressure, a compass, Traffic Monitoring System, HBMC (Hydraulic Body Motion Control) suspension system, Around View Monitor, satellite navigation system, leather accented seats and so on. The 5.6 liter V8 petrol burner is still found under its hood as this is rated at 298 kW and 560 Nm of torque. The unit is connected to a 7-speed automatic transmission and it is sending its power to the Nissan All-Mode 4×4 system.
