The upcoming 2023 Nissan Patrol Warrior is still not official. However, Nissan said the company is planning to offer this off-road model in the near future. Of course, the Patrol Warrior model will be sold in Australia. We don’t know if Nissan plans to sell this model globally. It is an off-road variant with additional gear, more standard features, and a very aggressive exterior design.
Some details will remain a complete mystery until the Japanese carmaker provides more details. From what we know, this model has been delayed, so it will reportedly arrive at some point in 2023. The Patrol SUV is more popular than ever before, so introducing an off-road version makes perfect sense.
Nissan Patrol Warrior Design
The new 2023 Nissan Patrol Warrior will represent an off-road version of this famous SUV. Because of that, the Warrior model will wear a more aggressive exterior design with additional ground clearance. Like the Navara Pro-4X Warrior truck, the Patrol Warrior SUV will wear similar styling cues.
Furthermore, we expect to see a wider track, unique off-road wheels with chunkier tires. Nissan will have to offer fender flares, skid plates, and other gear that comes with basically any off-road model. This one will also offer a beautiful LED light strip, a unique palette of exterior colors, and a slightly wider body.
The forthcoming 2023 Nissan Patrol Warrior will surely offer more standard features than the regular model. On top of that, we expect a more upright cabin design with a higher level of comfort. Nissan said the Patrol Warrior SUV will have some unique features and that the list of standard equipment will be enhanced. This means we expect to see a sporty cabin with a red and black theme.
Moreover, Nissan could introduce numerous orange accents as well. We also expect to see a larger touchscreen, updated infotainment, and additional safety aids. A 12.3-inch touchscreen should be the highlight of the Patrol Warrior and its interior. However, we don’t have official details yet, so all we can do is wait for Nissan to provide more info.
Powerful V8 Engine
At this moment, we don’t know if the proven 5.6-liter V8 engine will power the new 2023 Nissan Patrol Warrior. Reportedly, it will, but the Warrior version will get higher output. The standard Patrol SUV is producing 390 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. As for the Patrol Warrior, it will get 415 horsepower and around 415 lb-ft of torque.
It is a solid improvement for this high-performance off-road version. On the other hand, this engine is quite thirsty, and a standard AWD system will additionally lower the fuel efficiency. Still, more power will help this SUV achieve even better towing capacity, so we expect more than the current 7700 pounds of towing capability.
2023 Nissan Patrol Warrior Price and Release Date
The price of the regular Patrol SUV should start at around $47,000. This means the 2023 Nissan Patrol Warrior will cost significantly more, around $60,000. Nissan will reportedly launch a new Patrol Warrior variant at some point in 2023. And like the Nissan Navara Warrior, Patrol Warrior will be produced in the same Premcar factory in Victoria.
