I guess I never saw it as a big thing. But I had never paid too much attention to Patrols then, because overseas they cost a lot of money, so they're largely ignored.

Oh well.

I had a read in a newsagency today about the new Patrol.

Its moving onto the Armada platform as expected - but they said that they want to make it trully capable and all of that. Also, it was hinted that It'd have fully independant suspension and that It'd be larger...

So. An Armada.

As in the NA Nissan Armada? Me thinks that's a bit too big. That would be like moving the Ford Ranger to the Ford Expedition platform. I thought maybe they meant the platform that underpins the Navara/Frontier/Pathfinder/X-Terra and it's a bit smaller than the platform that underpins the Armada and Titan.

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.

Not really. Main competitors of the Patrol are the Landcruiser 200 and the Discovery 3, not the Defender and 76 series LC. So both competitors are now a bit larger, and that guy in the nissan article I read hinted at a larger Patrol...

I'm guessing an armada with shortened overhangs.
