Nissan Patrol Australia

The Nissan Patrol is a SUV manufactured by Nissan in Japan since 1950. The car is available in Australia, New Zealand, Central America, South America, South Africa, Western Europe, and
the Middle East and it is in direct competition with the Toyota Land Cruiser. The Patrol is
available with either two door (Short Wheel Base or SWB), four door wagon (LWB, Long Wheel Base) and Utility/Cab Chassis Variants. The old Y60 (GQ) 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. Users respect the vehicle for its power and durability, and modern version of the Nissan Patrol remains in production.

This vehicle was sold in Japan under the name Nissan Safari. The Nissan Patrol was first sold in Australia during the 1960s, and was the first vehicle to drive across the Simpson Desert in Australia. This model was designated as the G60 Patrol. Until 1994, Ford rebadged the Australian version of the Y60 (GQ) Patrol, as the Maverick. The Nissan Patrol, particularly the short wheel base version or the Utility version, has been the "Winch Challenge" competitors vehicle of choice, due to its inherent driveline strength, ease of modification, relative light weight, and popularity. In some European countries the Nissan

Patrol was for a short while marketed as Ebro Patrol. The Indian Army used the Nissan Patrol
1952 model under the light truck category. The name as per the Indian army records is Jonga.

Under license from Nissan, the Indian government indigenously produced these vehicles, in their Vehicle Factory at Jabalpur. Jonga has been replaced by the lighter and more reliable
Mahindra & Mahindra jeeps. Most army auctioned pieces have also been scrapped by their subsequent civilian owners. Hence the Jonga is becoming a rarity.
