Take one look at Tanzeem's Patrol (which was there for Sunday's Sarjapur Road OTR) in the flesh - and you will not even give this Patrol (on this thread) a second glance.

Angry Nissan Patrol ???

nooooooooo...my fav off-roader of all time...all gone for a toss like this. This shouldn't have been called a Patrol : they should have given it some other name. This is too yucky to be called a Nissan Patrol.

OMG! :'( NO! :O this just cant be true! they killed the car! hope this is not the actual production model and they go back to the drawing board and make some adjustments to make it look more like the previous gen. they really need to keep it along the masculine lines, because thats what they're all about! OT older Patrol prices are going to be going through the roof in the Middle East if this does come out!

Default Girly looking 2010 Nissan Patrol photos leaked

The front end looks so melted.

Link: 2011 Nissan Patrol SUV: Official Photos and Video Leak Online - Carscoop

The all-new 2011 Nissan Patrol must be one of the worst-kept secrets of automotive industry as the first photos of the luxury SUV snapped without any camouflage whatsoever at some sort of presentation made their way onto the web more than a year before its launch.

And it doesn't end there. Today, we found a whole set of official photos as well as a video of the new Patrol -courtesy of a Nissan forum in the Middle East- that you can check out in all their glory after the jump.
The latest generation of the Patrol is Nissan's largest and most capable 4X4 model and it will compete in most markets with the Toyota Land Cruiser.

The Patrol's exterior styling has been modernized adopting several key design cues from the Nissan Terranaut Concept that was shown at the 2006 Geneva Salon.
Even though details about the mechanics remain scarce, the photos confirm earlier reports that the Patrol will be offered with the Nissan group's new 5.6-liter V8 petrol engine that cranks out 420-horsepower in the 2011 Infiniti M56.

Looks decent if you don't compare it to the older gen patrols.

But if you do, it looks kinda lame Especially in comparison to this. (Off roading pics: Nissan Patrol)

This looks like our very own sumo grande. I wouldn't call the Sumo girly. May be we should see this one in flesh first. The looks aren't too promising though.

More than girly, it just looks different. Some segments remind me of the Scion XB.Kinda upscale looking interiors.

I dont it as 'girly' or anything like that but definitely looks more 'corporate' then the earlier 'butch' styling.
It could be just coincidence but I see resemlence to LC and Range Rover

Check out the 2010 Nissan Patrol , Does it look similar to the LC ?

The curves make it more a clone to the LC

I personally like the old Muscular Nissan Patrol. Which the Arabs say the King of deserts , the prince of Sand Dune.

That has to be the most disheartening successor ever, to a car. This is so cosmopolitan. Has none of the character of the macho Patrol we all so loved. This is a real fall from grace for a car like the Patrol. Looks like a softer, bigger X-trail! The interiors are nice though!

This just doesnt look like a Patrol. Where are all the rugged looks gone? Looks more like TLC.
