Home » New Nissan Patrol Y63 Release Timing Revealed: Nissan USA Spills on Launch Date for its Twin-Turbo V6-Powered Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series Rival

In a significant announcement that has stirred excitement among SUV enthusiasts, Nissan USA has finally revealed the launch timing for the next-generation Nissan Patrol. Known as the Armada in the American market, this new model is set to hit dealerships before the end of the year, signaling a 2024 launch date. This revelation comes from Jeremie Papin, the chairperson of Nissan Americas, who promises to introduce a formidable competitor to the Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series.

The Armada and Patrol: Twin Titans

The Nissan Armada, the American counterpart of the Nissan Patrol, shares its robust DNA with the iconic 4WD, making it a highly anticipated model in both markets. The confirmation of its launch date essentially clears the way for the new Patrol’s global release. This next-generation model is poised to redefine the segment with its advanced features and powerful new engine.

Powertrain and Performance

Under the hood, the new Patrol (and Armada) will house a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, delivering an impressive 336kW and 698Nm of torque. This new powertrain marks a significant upgrade from the outgoing 5.6-liter V8, which produced 298kW and 560Nm. The twin-turbo V6 not only provides more power and torque but also promises a 10 percent improvement in fuel efficiency, a welcome change for many consumers.

Design and Chassis

The Patrol and its luxurious twin, the Infiniti QX80, will share a ladder-frame chassis, ensuring robust off-road capabilities while maintaining a refined on-road experience. The Infiniti QX80 is set to hit US dealerships in July, further heightening anticipation for the Patrol’s release.

Market Readiness and Consumer Demand

Papin highlighted the pent-up demand for new models due to the pandemic and supply chain disruptions but noted that the market remains healthy. On the premium side, where consumer spending is strong, Nissan will also launch the redesigned Murano alongside the Armada later this year.

Features and Innovations

The new Patrol will come packed with modern features aimed at enhancing both convenience and capability. The updated MY24 Patrol and Patrol Warrior, recently launched in Australia, offer a glimpse into what we can expect. These models boast an interior overhaul, incorporating Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the first time, as well as new on- and off-road mapping applications.

Australian Launch Timing

While the exact launch timing for the new Patrol in Australia remains unclear, the introduction of the new Armada in the US suggests that the Patrol’s arrival might not be far behind. Given the recent updates to the MY24 Patrol and Patrol Warrior in Australia, including significant interior upgrades, the market is well-prepared for the new generation’s arrival.


The new Nissan Patrol Y63 is set to make a significant impact in the SUV market with its advanced twin-turbo V6 engine, improved fuel efficiency, and robust design. As we await its global launch, the confirmation of the Armada’s release later this year in the US provides a clear signal that the Patrol’s debut is imminent. This next-generation model promises to offer a compelling alternative to the Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series, combining Nissan’s legendary off-road capability with modern technology and luxury.
