To carry on the legacy of the 20-year old Y61 Patrol model, the Japanese carmaker Nissan has recently announced the introduction of the fresh replacement, which is the limited 2016 Patrol Legend Edition, available in just 300 units.

Once it will arrive in dealerships early next year, the new model will be available in two versions – the Patrol Y61 Legend Edition with manual transmission (AUD $57,990), as well as the Patrol Y61 Legend Edition with automatic transmission (AUD $60,990).

Being an iconic model of the 1990s, the new 2016 Nissan Patrol Legend Edition is going to be the new kid on the block in Australia, coming with exquisite features worthy of the legendary name.

Amongst the top features we should mention the heavy-duty steel bull bar, electric winch, special roof rack box and snorkel, tow bar, spare wheel with soft cover, all of them making the perfect accessories for off-road capabilities.

Inside, the cabin is fully tweaked with the latest technology, including infotainment system, satellite navigation, rear-view camera, and much more.

Mechanically, the 2016 Nissan Patrol Legend Edition features a heavy-duty three-link coil-spring front suspension setup and a five-link coil-spring rear setup, adding as well four-wheel disc brakes or the 17-inch alloy wheels with 275/65 tires front and rear, respectively.

In the engine department, the 2016 Patrol Legend Edition comes with a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel flat-four engine, with 118 kW and 380 Nm of torque in the manual, and 345 Nm of torque in the automatic. The power is sent to the wheels via a choice of four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual transmission.
