- Nissan Pathfinder and Patrol models boast class-leading towing capacities
- Powerful engines and four-wheel drive make towing easy, anywhere
ROSSLYN, South Africa (11 November 2013) -
Nissan's Pathfinder and Patrol SUV ranges are not only famous for their
legendary reliability, versatility, durability and off-road
capabilities, but each boasts an equally significant attribute which
elevates them to the top of their class: towing capacity.
Pathfinder range boasts other class-leading elements including 140kW of
power from the 2.5 dCi turbocharged diesel engine. This, when coupled
with torque of 450 Nm, translates into a towing capacity of 3 000 kg.
top-of-the-range Pathfinder V9X trumps its competitors too with a
towing capacity of 3 500 kg, thanks in no small part to the 3.0-litre
turbocharged V6 diesel engine which produces 170 kW and 550 Nm from as
low as 1 750 rpm.
The Nissan Patrol, a legendary icon in the
off-road fraternity, also boasts high towing capacities - the 380 Nm
3.0Di GL is able to haul 2 700 kg while the 190 kW/ 425 Nm Patrol 4.8
GRX with its straight-six petrol engine is able to tug 3 500 kg.
Product Manager at Nissan South Africa, Terry Mashoko, said: "Nissan
SUVs are widely regarded to be the best in the business in many
respects, and the class-leading towing capacities offered by both the
Pathfinder and Patrol are testament to their might and prowess. Simply
put, if it needs towing, a Nissan SUV can tow it."
