The epoch making Nissan Patrol first to be assembled by Stallion Motors in Nigeria has charted its way in the upscale market, the company said yesterday.
Car buffs waiting to catch a glimpse of the latest Nissan Patrol would have every reason to celebrate the quantum of transformation in one of the best-known and longest established nameplates on the global four-wheel drive (4WD) scene.
Now redesigned with an unprecedented zest and ergonomics, the more than six decades old nameplate has returned with a futuristic look that stands out for its unique combination of the most recent technologies and new design DNA.
Assembled in Nigeria by Stallion Nissan Motors Nigeria (NMN) plant in Lagos, Nissan said the new Y62 Patrol as it’s fondly called, adapts to the needs of consumers by breaking away from its ‘proper off-roader’ status to become urbane-friendly SUV with far more refined proposition that offers a dramatically improved ride quality and fuel economy than its predecessor.
Stallion NMN head of sales and marketing, the local Nissan sales company, Mr Amit Sharma said, “the new Y62 Patrol is not the previous workhorse but a technologically savvy SUV imbued with all the practicality of a luxury sedan.
“And just as the new Patrol easily conquers a long uphill task with its exceptionally modified V8 torque, so does its multi-mode grip compensates for rocks and loose sand when driven on rough roads and in deep water.”
