    Long overdue refresh, but looks like it uses that dual screen setup from some Infinitis which BTW still doesn't employ AA or CP...no sale.

    I'm trying to think of something nice to say, they are making it difficult... I like the headlights, so there is that...

    I read one article that said AA + CP were included in the new infotainment system, so we shall see.

    Overall, a decent update, but not blowing me out of the water. They are very comfortable HWY cruisers some off-road chops to get off the beaten path at least a little bit. Overall this platform is very solid but old, very heavy, with mediocre interior packaging - it could use an update.

    Hate it. Nissan designs are bizarre.

    It's often said automotive designs are influenced by the female form. Apparently Nissan is mostly influenced by female bovines.

    Improved in the looks department, but still seems to be suffering from what to me looks like an unhappy marriage between Japanese and French design teams.

    At least they didn't go with the full buck tooth grill like they use on the Altima.

    I'd be more inclined to support Nissan now since Nissan is trying to break away from that terrible French brand.

    On a reflated note: Has anyone noticed an uptick in Mitsubishis with people who can't drive worth a damn (or don't give a damn) since that terrible French brand picked them up?

    Front end looks a little better (anything would have), but the rest is yuck.

    I thought the Petrol and the ARMADA are NOT related as the ARMADA was based off the "full size" US market pick up where as the Patrol was a "global" sized SUV like the Land Cruiser

    Toyota Sequoia was the competition to the Armada
    making this a car NOT intended for the USDM SUV/TRUCK market BUT the "global" one were capability is more important then electronics and being "modern"

    Nope...Nissan killed the US Market Armada in 2017 and consolidated to the Patrol platform with the Q56 which moved over a few years earlier. I kinda hope they switch back and build a full size off the Titan...I think thatll solve some of their packaging problems.

    A mates Dad has a Patrol (the one directly before this refresh) and tows a large Caravan around Australia with it

    He's a "grey nomad" never stays in one place too long

    The Patrol is chipped has well over 400HP and tows the van like it's not even there

    Great tow truck
