Nissan or should we say Premcar has previewed the Nissan Patrol Warrior.

Due later this year, it features a 50mm lift, cosmetic changes and a bi-modal exhaust
system with tailpipes that exit in front of the rear wheels — so you can hear them

Premcar’s Engineering Director Bernie Quinn said the underlying idea was to
increase the Patrol’s capability rather than “shift’ or takeaway from what it could
already do.

“Crucially it was engineered in Australia by Australian engineers for Australian
customers,” he said.

As well as the 50mm lift, Patrol Warrior is about 94mm longer, 84mm wider with a
40mm wider track and has a completely revised suspension system, with hydraulic
body motion control.

The system replaces the need for roll bars which has the added benefit of providing
greater articulation in off-road conditions.

The rear bumper has been revised to accommodate a full-size wheel and tyre under
the back.

Inside the yucky wood trim has been replaced by Alcantara or gloss black, making it
look classy and modern.
