During the creation of the latest generation of Nissan Patrol, engineers of the Japanese company have tested 200 copies of the prototypes at first on three Nissan proving grounds in the Land of the Rising Sun, and later in the Middle East, in the desert conditions. Then reliability and durability tests were done.
The Nissan Patrol was designed by Taiji Toyota. He smoothed the angular shape of the jeep, making them more soft and rounded, but they still emphasize the brutality, power and masculinity of this jeep.
