The Nissan Patrol (Japanese: 日産・パトロール Nissan Patorōru) is a series of large four-wheel drive vehicles manufactured by Nissan in Japan since 1951. The Patrol is generally regarded as a tough and utilitarian 4×4 in Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Europe, Japan, and the Caribbean, where it competes directly with the Toyota Land Cruiser which is its main rival in those markets. In the United States and Canada, it competes in the luxury SUV segment where it carries the upscale Infiniti brand.
The Patrol has been available as either a short-wheelbase (SWB) three-door or a long-wheelbase (LWB) five-door chassis. The LWB version has also been offered in pickup truck and cab chassis variants alongside the wagon. Between 1988 and 1994, Ford Australia marketed the Patrol as the Ford Maverick. The Maverick was available as a competitor to the Nissan-branded Patrol. Also, in some European countries the Patrol was, for a short while marketed by Ebro as the Ebro Patrol. Since 1980, in Japan, it has been known as the Nissan Safari. The Patrol is available in Australia, Central and South America, South Africa, parts of Southeast Asia and Western Europe as well as Iran and the Middle East, except for North America, where for 2016, a modified version is now sold as the Nissan Armada. In 2010 for the 2011 model year, it was made available in North America as the upscale Infiniti QX56.
The Y61 platform is still manufactured as a military vehicle in the countries of Asia and the Middle East, and various versions of the Patrol are widely used by United Nations agencies. These Y61 models are produced alongside the current Y62. The fourth and fifth generations are the main troop transport vehicles used by the Irish Army.
