Nissan Australia has announced pricing and specifications for the 2024 Nissan Patrol, which is due in local showrooms soon. Partnering with local automotive parts supplier Directed Technologies, the updated Patrol finally has the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring technology – wireless too – that it’s lacked so far. The new 10.1-inch touchscreen is actually fitted locally to each Patrol and gives the model another different dashboard design to the Patrols sold in LHD markets.

Directed Technologies Executive Director Brent Stafford said, “Directed Technologies is proud to be delivering Nissan the only multimedia device designed in Australia.”

“Our homegrown expertise ensures the new cutting-edge upgrades will respond to rugged Australian conditions that are often driven by Nissan Patrol and Nissan Patrol Warrior owners.”

Centre of the 2024 Nissan Patrol update is a new 10.1-inch touchscreen, which is fitted in the centre of the dashboard and has left a new storage slot at the top of the dashboard where the old screen was located. It features wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring and DAB+ digital radio, as well as iGo Street satellite navigation, a high-definition reversing camera – and a one-month free subscription to Hema off-road navigation maps. The 360-degree camera on the current Patrol appears to have been replaced with just a reversing camera in this update.

Accompanying the new touchscreen is a new 15-watt wireless phone charger in the centre console and a new USB-C port on the dashboard, replacing a former USB-A unit. The entry-level Ti and mid-spec Warrior also gain a cooler box under the front armrest and a digital rear mirror. However, on the top-spec Ti-L, the former 13-speaker Bose sound system has been replaced with an Infinity six-speaker sound system and the rear screens appear to have been deleted as well.

Otherwise, the 2024 Nissan Patrol range is unchanged. Under the bonnet lies a 298kW/560Nm 5.6-litre petrol V8 engine that’s mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and a full-time four-wheel drive system with multiple off-road driving modes.

2024 Nissan Patrol pricing (plus on-road costs):

  • Ti: $87,900 (+$3,000)
  • Warrior: $104,160 (+$3,000)
  • Ti-L: $100,600 (+$3,000)

The 2024 Nissan Patrol range will enter local Nissan showrooms soon. Stay tuned to DiscoverAuto for the latest automotive news and reviews.
