Road commander: The Nissan Patrol Royale
Driving a Nissan Patrol Royale can definitely give you a dominating presence on the road, with its large, sophisticated, bold look that confidently screams luxury.
This eight-seater SUV provides a generous interior space and fine leather seats. Its luxurious design is highlighted by chrome accents and aluminum and wood touches. The Patrol Royale uses a dual-zone climate control air conditioning system which lets the front and rear passengers adjust the temperature on their rows. The vehicle also has a built-in cooler box which can carry 16oz drink bottles.
The vehicle also features an auto open/close tailgate function that lets you easily access the cargo space.
This Nissan SUV is equipped with a seven-inch LCD with MP3, USB, DVD and tuner with iPod connectivity. Behind the front seats are two seven-inch WVGA display monitors where second-row passengers can watch their favorite movies and videos while stuck in the traffic. For a premium audio experience, the Patrol Royale uses a 13-speaker audio system powered by Bose.
The Patrol Royale uses the Nissan Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System which allows you to easily take wireless calls while making sure that both of your hands are focused on the road.
The vehicle is also loaded with modern driver assistance features that will surely give you a hassle-free driving experience. You can start the vehicle’s engine with one push of a button. It also comes with a Nissan intelligent key that provides an easy door access.
The Patrol Royale is installed with four cameras that display the vehicle’s outside surroundings through the around view monitor, which serves as a guide in parking within tight spaces. Aside from this, the SUV also has front and rear parking sensors that notify the driver if ever it detects an approaching object near the vehicle. Another smart feature is the intelligent cruise control which helps you manage the vehicle's speed to maintain distance from the vehicle in front of you.
The Nissan Patrol is equipped with a memory system that lets you save your driver’s seat, mirrors, multimedia, and climate control settings, so you can easily get back the same configuration if ever another driver will be using the vehicle.
If you think that the Patrol’s excellence is only limited to its comfort and convenience features, let me introduce you its high-powered 5.6-liter V8 petrol engine that delivers 400hp and 500Nm of torque. It is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission that enables torque from lower revs. With this level of power, the Nissan Patrol Royale is definitely capable of overcoming any kind of terrain.
If you’re a sucker for adventure, the Nissan Patrol can be your companion as it can easily adapt with any type of escapade. This off-roader is built with a rigid structure that makes it resilient in any road condition. It also uses an all mode 4x4 system that lets you choose among its four drive modes: Sand, On-road, Snow, and Rock.
To maintain your momentum when driving in slopes, the SUV uses its hill start assist and hill descent control functions.
The Nissan Patrol is also packed with features that will banish your worries in driving through slippery roads. It has helical slip differential (LSD), locking rear differential, and active brake limited slip (ABLS) features that keep the vehicle’s composure in case the wheel starts spinning or slipping out of control.
With all these first-class features and a vigorous road performance, the Nissan Patrol Royale can surely take you anywhere, even to the most extreme adventures, without any fuss.
