HISTORY: NISSAN PATROL
Nissan has confirmed that sales of the GU Patrol will cease this year, bringing an end to a long and proud history.
NISSAN has been producing live-axle, fourwheel drive Patrol wagons and cab-chassis variants for an astonishing 65 years, but this is set to stop with the demise of the GU Patrol (Y61) by the end of the year. In fact, with only the petrol-powered Y62 Patrol remaining, you’ll no longer be able to buy a diesel-fuelled heavy-duty Nissan off-roader at all. While the Patrol nameplate will live on in the Y62 model, this petrol-only, independent-suspension wagon will leave many tourers looking towards other marques for their next outback adventure machine.
