Toyota LandCruiser Prado Vs Nissan Patrol (2011)

Here's a quick comparison between the 150 series Toyota Land Cruiser LC5 Prado specifications and the all new 7th generation 2011 Nissan Patrol.   

An all new Nissan Patrol is due to be released either later 2010 or 2011. It has been a long time between updates. The new Nissan Patrol has forgone its 1990's look and headed straight to the Euro-esque exterior and interior. Gone is the rugged commercial style theme and it's luxury car design.

The best thing about the prior generation Nissan Patrol was that it was relatively cheap. Initially it was a competitor to the full sized LandCruiser but its pricing was in the same range as a Prado. It was a big and tough 4WD. It's only weakness was the much complained 3Lt turbo diesel which has apparently been fixed.
With the new model everything has been changed and we look forward to see how Nissan positions and prices the new Patrol!  However you can expect that forth coming Patrol is clearly positioned at the 200 series LandCruiser (once again).
Not many details available yet except some pictures and that the new top range engine is a 5.6 Litre V8 engine producing around the 300Kw and 550Nm of torque. The pictures also revel a substantially upmarket interior and hint at the substantially increased pricing. The new 2010 Patrol does look pretty good already!
Anyway needless to say it stuffs up or rather delays our replacement vehicle decision for the time being.
