Nissan Australia has announced it has given the green light for Premcar to develop and
produce the newest model to join its Nissan Warrior program, the Patrol Warrior.

The Patrol is the latest Nissan nameplate to join the company’s critically acclaimed Warrior
model series, a Nissan-specific OEM-level new-vehicle enhancement program produced
and delivered by Premcar.

Wheel, tyre and suspension enhancements are set to feature in the Patrol Warrior’s
forthcoming Australian engineering program, giving it even greater ground clearance, a
wider stance and enhanced ride and handling. This will take its off-road abilities and
touring performance to new levels.

These enhancements, along with the Patrol’s 298 kW / 560 Nm 5.6-litre direct-injection V8
engine, will create the best Warrior to date.

The Patrol Warrior program is expected to take around 12 months to complete before
production commences at Premcar’s Epping (Victoria) manufacturing facility, the
Australian production site.

It involves creating market-specific versions of new-model Nissan vehicles using extensive
automotive design and engineering development, which requires gruelling testing
programs for prototype vehicles and components, government-mandated new-vehicle
certification, and secondary vehicle manufacturing, all of it done by Premcar in Australia.

This latest new-vehicle enhancement program with Nissan is a significant force behind
Premcar’s ongoing expansion-related investments in personnel, manufacturing facilities
and production technologies.

More details about the Nissan Patrol Warrior by Premcar are expected to be released
closer to its local market release. We will bring you this information as soon as Nissan
provides them.
