Nissan News - what's coming in 2011
The All New Pathfinder and Navara STX 550 4wd's are coming in 2011. Navara early in the year and Pathfinder around midyear. The 550 nameplate refers to the torque that the new V6 turbo diesel engine produces. So if you want pulling power, these are the vehicles for you. With 170kW of power and improved fuel economy, these 2 machines will be leaders in their class.\
We have had a lot of enquiry on the All New Patrol Wagon. Everyone wants to know when it will arrive! Nissan Australia have told us that we can expect it in the next 12-18 months. Read their media release here. We do know that the Patrol will be released with a 5.6L V8 petrol engine and all new transmissions.
