Nissan today announced the rebirth of its legendary Patrol Super Safari in the Middle East, one of the most coveted off-road vehicles ever sold in the region. The Patrol Super Safari’s long standing heritage in the region has lasted with every passing generation, achieving iconic status among gulf nationals and expats alike.
The re-imagined Nissan Patrol Super Safari retains all the elements that have elevated the vehicle to iconic status such as the rugged design and the off road capability, while delivering a modern approach that is complimented by the special upgrades and enhancements that add to its usability and visual appeal. It marries legendary off-road capability with modern day comfort and innovation that truly excites. Designed to be a remarkable off-road vehicle while maintaining all the comforts of a road going full size SUV, the Patrol Super Safari incorporates some of the latest innovation and features that Nissan customers have come to expect.
The 2017 Patrol Super Safari boasts all-new tan leather seats and door trim with 8-way power seats for the driver and 4-way for the front passenger. New driver aids include a navigation system as well as front and rear parking sensors with rear view camera, Bluetooth, USB, CD, auxiliary input socket and FM/AM radio to complete the in-car entertainment offering. The vehicle comes equipped with automatic climate control and a built-in, refrigerated cool box.
Building on the iconic Super Safari model, the New Nissan Patrol Super Safari enjoys the legendary exterior design which has distinguished it from other Patrol models and made it one of the most recognized icons of modern off-road vehicles. Distinctive machine cut 17” black alloy wheels, dual-tone body colors, flared fenders, a rear spoiler and a Super Safari body stripe all build on its iconic looks.
The Patrol Super Safari boasts a 4.8L DOHC in-line 6-cylinder engine producing 280hp and a mighty 46kg or 451Nm of torque which allows it to power up dunes or tow heavy objects with ease. The engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual mode. Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) keep everything on the straight and narrow while driving on the highway.
Dual front airbags, ABS, an immobilizer and cruise control are among the other features contributing to both safety and driver convenience, while the vehicle boasts rear locking differentials, an electric front winch, as well as front and rear tow hooks as standard equipment for desert use.
Complementing the existing Patrol line up which includes the V8, V6 and Patrol NISMO, Samir Cherfan, the managing director of Nissan Middle East, is confident that the market for the Patrol Super Safari is a healthy one thanks to its captive audience and devoted fans.
