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.

The 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. 

The 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.

SUV 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.”
