BIGGER AND BETTER Second generation 1960 - 1980 The second generation of Patrol witnessed significant changes in the design of the vehicle to increase in size and stature – with more capabilities to woo offroad enthusiasts. Though the Patrol’s tough durability meant that it was a popular choice for military organizations, the 60 series was the first model to gain traction with the consumer audience. During this period, the vehicle took on some of the world’s most robust mobility trials. The G60 became the first vehicle to cross the Simpson Desert in Australia, one of the world’s most remote regions, which is spread across 200,000 sq. km.

GRABBING MORE ATTENTION Third Generation 1980 - 1987 Reflective of the era, the third generation of Patrol adopted a more modern style and was the first Patrol to be available in bright colors with loud graphics. The vehicle had a more powerful turbo diesel engine that generated 81 KW of power, and its maximum speed reached 145 KM/Hour. As for the body, the high roof was clearly distinguished, allowing more space for passengers and cargo at the same time. 58
