ENHANCED LEVELS OF COMFORT Fourth Generation 1987 - 1997 In 1987, Nissan released the fourth generation, and Nissan Patrol Fanta Limon became the first-ever diesel-fed car to make it to the top ten in Paris-Dakar Rally. This body and design of this generation were significantly developed; the vehicle became more spacious and was equipped with new features, such as electric mirrors, sunroof, modern suspension systems, and had more powerful engines than ever.

INCREASED TECHNICAL SOPHISTICATION Fifth generation 1997 - present The fifth generation of Nissan Patrol was a benchmark in the vehicle’s journey, with its powerful engines and its state-of-theart technology offering superior suspension, steadiness, and enhanced safety features. Y61 Patrols were used as support vehicles for an epic 14,000 km journey from Scotland to South Africa for the documentary ‘Long Way Down’ led by actor wan McGregor and Charlie Boorman. The Patrol also won the first Australian Outback Challenge and became a repeating champion from 2005 till 2012. In 2017, as a direct result of consumer demand and popularity of the car in the region, Nissan announced the rebirth of the Patrol Super Safari in the Middle East. In 2018, Nissan expanded the iconic Patrol Safari range with the Patrol Falcon, Gazelle, and Gazelle X exclusively for and available to customers in the Middle East. The engines of the fifth generation’s Patrol were very powerful. The engines TB48DE were modified to generate 2000 hp and 1,491 KW to help climb the sandhills and tackle other harsh road challenges in the region.

BREAKING RECORDS AND BUILDING UPON ITS SOLID REPUTATION Sixth generation 2010 - present The Y62 is the holder of three Guinness World Records, including ‘Heaviest object pulled by a production vehicle in 2013’, ‘Fastest dune ascend’ in 2015, and ‘Larger synchronized car dance’ in 2018. In 2015, the world premiere launch of the first-ever Nissan Patrol Nismo took place in the Middle East. The Y62 generation of Nissan Patrol is used as official vehicles of desert challenges events in the region. In 2014, Nissan presented the new facelift with a new front and lamps along with renovation in the cabin. Nissan also released a limited-edition vehicle with red leather seats and matt black colored components. Starting 2017, Nissan implemented the 7-speed automatic transmission in all its models, while it adopted before a 5-speed automatic transmission and 6-speed manual one. This version provided more options to enable motorists to quickly switch from four modes: driving on sand, stones, roads, and snow. In 2019, the Nissan Patrol enjoyed a new facelift, while it launched the all-new Patrol in 2020.

CONTINUING TO LEAD Nissan Patrol 2020 The model year 2020 Patrol features enhanced comfort and

luxury with the latest Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies while retaining its much loved, go-anywhere persona with classleading power and unmatched on- and off-road capabilities. The new model has enhanced superior styling with a bold and confident exterior and a luxurious interior using premium materials and focusing on driver comfort in every situation. ✤
