All of those trucks are actually on the same platform. Its a very flexible platform. The Patrol will most likely move to the same platform as well.
Yes, but a highly modified platform no? My understanding is the platform that underpins the Titan spawned the Armada and after heavy modifications, it spawned the Frontier, Pathfinder, and X-Terra. I'm thinking the *modified* platform that underpins the smaller trucks will be used for the Patrol. The tooling is in place for the platform around the world (just modify the sheetmetal really and some chassis tweaks). Something Titan/Armadaesque would just be too big imho. I can't fathom an SUV larger than the outgoing Patrol when the main competitors are the Toyota Land Cruiser or Land Rover Defender.
