Nissan UAE has also worked tirelessly to set up its network here. And perhaps one of the oldest and capable vehicles from Nissan in the local market is the Patrol. It might not be as intimidating to look at as the Land Cruiser Prado, but it surely carries itself with undeniable pride. Nissan Patrol specs will make you realize that under the hood of this machine is a large 5.6-litre V8 engine which produces 400 hp. It’s because of this powerhouse that the Patrol patrols the deserts with so ease. There’s also a ‘less’ powerful 4.0-litre engine available. This churns out 275 hp and comes with an automatic transmission.
