Yes, you have read correct: Patrol Nismo. The SUV will be sold alongside the 370Z Nismo and GT-R Nismo. It comes as a surprise that Nissan has decide to launch a sportier version of its largest SUV, but here is a great market for this hotter Patrol.
We don’t know if the Patrol Nismo will be available worldwide but this isn’t for the first time when Nissan launches a high-performance SUV (see Juke-R and Juke Nismo).
