2010 Nissan Patrol Video Released

After over the weekend Japanese carmaker Nissan unveiled the "Hero of All Terrain" in Abu Dhabi, the first video showing the 50,000 euros Japanese SUV in action hit the web. As you will see, the Patrol is seen patroling in the middle of the desert because, as already hinted by Nissan, arab nations are the ones primarily targeted by the sew SUV.

The new Patrol uses a 5.6l V8 engine which develops 400 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. The unit is paired with a seven speed automatic transmission and a new electronic four-wheel-drive system with four driver-selectable modes: pavement, sand, rock, and snow.

The car makes use, for the stunts you see in this video, of a Hydraulic Body Motion Control System (HBMC), allowing it to remain flatter with less body roll during lane-changing and cornering. The addition of a 4-wheel independent suspension system also adds to the off-roading abilities of the Patrol.

The SUV is fitted with six airbags for top grade, a revised climate control system with curtain vent and a cool box mounted in the centre console between the front seats.

"We paid special attention to the needs of current Patrol owners, and their passengers, and so focused on creating first-class levels of comfort for the whole family. Heightened luxury, a roomier cabin and a quieter ride combine to achieve this goal, while maintaining Patrol's superior off-road heritage,"
Hiroyuki Fushiki, project head for Nissan said in a release.
