Considered one of today’s best luxury SUVs, the Nissan Patrol Royale is the epitome of comfort without compromise. This seventh-generation model boasts opulent features centered in comfort and convenience for when you’re braving city traffic or conquering the unpaved roads of the provinces. It’s a go-anywhere vehicle with a long history of being a symbol of command and authority.
Its predecessor, the OG Patrol, competed against the likes of the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Mitsubishi Pajero, and was known for its sheer ruggedness and reliability. But like most vehicles, Nissan’s hunky hauler needed a face-lift. The Patrol Royale added the element of sophistication and elegance to the Japanese car company’s iconic nameplate packing the revamped Patrol with the latest innovations in car technology.
Locally, the Nissan Patrol Royale is only offered in a 5.6 V8 4x4 AT variant that can either be had in Black Obsidian, or if you have a few more pesos to spare, Pearl White.

More about the Nissan Patrol Royale
From the outside, the Nissan Patrol Royale offers an intimidating road presence. Although the ruggedness from its lineage is perceptible from its big and brawny dimensions, an air of refinement can be observed through its symmetrical lines highlighted by the stylish chrome accents bedecking its exterior.
The addition of modern accessories lining its body, from front to rear, also sends a clear message of its smart capabilities. Seamlessly hidden around the luxury SUV are a slew of cameras and sensors to help you navigate and park this behemoth of a vehicle even in tight spots. The interior of the Nissan Patrol Royale harks back to old cruisers with a generous amount of wood trims paired with chrome and aluminum accents. And speaking of old luxury, you’ll find an ashtray and a CD player there, too.
The naturally aspirated V8 engine gives the Nissan Patrol Royale more than enough horsepower allowing its passengers to go anywhere, as long as there’s fuel to burn though, as the large mill means that it gulps up gasoline.
The Nissan Patrol Royale currently sells at P3,988,000 and costs P15,000 more if you opt for the Pearl White finish.
