Africa is not for the fainthearted, making the Nissan Patrol Pickup the perfect vehicle for the challenge. Designed to conquer the most unforgiving terrain, the Nissan Patrol Pickup’s rugged construction and solid, innovative engineering means it takes the most daunting obstacles in its stride.
Such as an impressive approach angle of 34° and departure angle of 30° that ensures getting out of a situation is as effortless as getting into one. A transmission with a chain driven transfer case that’s as hardy as the rest of the vehicle. A robust, yet smooth, five-speed manual transmission with double cone synchromesh on 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears for an superbly comfortable drive, even when the conditions aren’t.
When you’re taking on the toughest South African conditions, you need a vehicle with the muscle to get you where you’re going, no questions asked. Which is why the power of the Nissan Patrol Pickup has made it such a legend. And now its all-new 3.0 litre common rail diesel engine, with 110kW of power at 3 600rpm and an impressive 371Nm of torque at just 1800rpm, builds further on that legendary status.
The comfort extends to the high quality cloth seats with head restraints, which have been specifically designed to reduce fatigue.
Also included are air-conditioning, electric windows, drink holders, a central console, tilt adjustable steering column with power steering and a driver’s footrest which provides perfect support over any terrain. With other luxuries such as moquette seat trimmings, door pockets, warning lamp and large armrests, the Nissan Patrol Pickup is a pleasure to drive, inside and out.
Built on a separate ladder chassis designed with rungs for rigidity and strength, the all-steel Nissan Patrol Pickup body is as impressive as the engine that pulls it. Powerful, practical and dynamic, the Patrol Pickup’s bold design projects its ruggedness to the world, overfenders add to it’s aggressive and attractive look, while the wider cargo bed with corrosion proofing and anti-rusting wax added to the underbody proves it.
