2019 Nissan Patrol Ti-L 5.6P 4WD 7AT

20,000 km
7-gear automatic

You are looking at the 2019 Patrol in flagship Ti-L guise, which sits atop Nissan's range of SUVs and 4x4s. At almost 5.2m long and about 2m wide and tall, it's a bit of a monster. No wonder North Americans and Emiratis love them. The main talking point on the Y62 Patrol remains its engine, It's a hell of a donk. A direct-injected, 5.6-litre, naturally aspirated alloy V8 (code VK56VD) pushing out 298kW of power at 5800rpm and 560Nm of peak torque at 4000rpm, with the bulk of this torque available at 1600rpm. That's more than the 5.7-litre Hemi in a Ram 1500 truck. It's matched to a seven-speed automatic with manual mode. Moreover, it's remarkably understated and smooth in the way it goes about its business. There's neither an obnoxious bark nor diesel-style clattering, just a confident rumble from the outside and, thanks to lots of firewall insulation, bugger all from inside the cabin. An overwhelming proportion of Y62 buyers will be towing, this engine is more than capable. The max rating is 3.5 tonnes, with the requisite 350kg towball download capacity. You've got quite sophisticated double-wishbone suspension at both ends, as well as a proprietary passive system called Hydraulic Body Motion Control. This set-up minimises the body lean you'd usually get from a car with such a high roll axis by stiffening the outer-side dampers through clever fluid transfer, and gravity. At the same time, it can give any wheel a greater arc of travel off-road, addressing the issue for a 4x4 lacking solid axles. There's also a helical LSD at the rear for on-road that's fully lockable for off-road, speed-sensitive power steering, and ventilated disc brakes at both ends. There's also a shift-on-the-fly 4WD system with Auto (where the ECU shuffles the torque as needed), 4 High and eventually 4 Low Range. There are various modes called Sand, Snow and Rock that fettle the throttle and ESC to suit a given terrain type. there's a heap of standard equipment. The Patrol gets keyless start, button start, three-zone climate control, an 8.0-inch screen with sat-nav, a 360-degree camera and a sunroof.

The Ti-L adds extra stuff such as a ramped-up 13-speaker Bose sound system, a cooler box between the front seats, a power tailgate (which you can turn off and use manually), Xenon headlights instead of halogens, and an Intelligent Rear View Mirror, which relays a rear camera's inputs to said mirror giving you an unimpeded rear view. And yes, it can be turned off and become a regular mirror. I liked it.

It also picks up some active safety features that have been fitted to the Y62 such as active cruise control, forward alert, lane-departure warning, blind-spot warning (particularly helpful) and a tyre pressure monitor.
