The Warrior comes with the same 5.6L V8 engine that has more than ample power and torque. This combines with a 7 Sp AT and sophisticated 4WD system

I took the Warrior on some forest trails, dirt roads and on the beach. The combination of revised suspension and V8 motor made the beach driving ridiculously easy.

Inside it’s a little dated and missing some common features, but its awesome off road and pleasant to drive . One downside though os that he V8 gets pretty thirsty.

Nissan patrol Warrior is priced from a little over $101,000 plus the usual costs
