Building on the success of Navara PRO-4X Warrior and Navara SL Warrior, Patrol Warrior by Premcar furthers the Warrior story, creating a flagship 4WD ready for Australian customers. The model is the result of real-world market feedback that has helped create a vehicle that has been tailor-made for Australian conditions.
“Australia is a unique country, with unique conditions and many highly informed new-car buyers who demand a 4WD that’s engineered for our vast and rugged landscape,” said Premcar Engineering Director, Bernie Quinn.
“The Patrol Warrior by Premcar has been developed specifically for Australian conditions and is the product of some of Australia’s leading car-making know-how. It’s been developed after thousands of hours of intensive research by our dedicated team of automotive industry engineering and manufacturing specialists, and we’re incredibly proud to launch the latest addition to the Warrior range.”
Premcar has been Nissan’s engineering partner since the launch of the Warrior program in 2019, with vehicles re-engineered in Victoria to create tough flagship models suited to local conditions.
The new addition to the Patrol line-up delivers key mechanical upgrades, as well as interior and exterior changes, that enhance the capability of the already highly regarded Patrol.
THE FOUR PILLARS
Patrol Warrior by Premcar has been engineered to ensure no compromise to the Patrol’s base vehicle design characteristics while enhancing capability to suit Australian conditions.
Development work focused on four key pillars, each of which broadens the Patrol’s capability.
Enhanced capability: The off-road capability is enhanced by the Warrior’s increased ground clearance, larger all terrain tyres, redesigned towbar to support the Warrior’s full-size spare, and key improvements to its suspension and GVM.
Road presence: With refreshed exterior styling and expanded dimensions, Patrol Warrior by Premcar boasts a significantly enhanced presence on- or off-road, while the interior has been finished in black gloss and Alcantara trim with Warrior embossing.
The soundtrack: Patrol Warrior by Premcar features a new bi-modal exhaust system to enhance the driving experience and unleash the ultimate expression of Nissan’s 298kW V8.
Superb refinement: Patrol Warrior by Premcar manages to be tough and refined, delivering a blend of cabin comfort, ride and handling, and off-road capability thanks to its enhanced HBMC suspension.
The model is based on the well-appointed Nissan Patrol Ti, with standard features including satellite navigation, electric front seats, blind spot warning, Around-View Monitor, emergency braking, and leather-accented seats.
