Hastily taken, grainy snaps of future models tend to pop up everywhere, as Nissan found out last week.
A quick-thinking person at a dealer convention in the Middle East fired off a few shots of the next-generation Patrol off-roader, which is not due out until next year.
As the photo shows, the big wagon borrows cues from the Terranaut concept show wagon with its upswept rear window and less boxy look.
The Murano-like front is sleek and the Patrol pays a passing complement to the Land Rover Sport with its mudguard air vents.
The Patrol is expected to carry over its body-on-frame construction with new more powerful engines and transmissions.
There is likely to be arange-topping 5.6-litre V8 with a seven-speed gearbox, as well as a V6 petrol and a 3.0-litre V6 dCi turbo-diesel powerplant shared with Renault, Nissan's partner.

And a V8!

Imagine how many pistons you could crack in a single outing with that baby!

I am sure given time the new patrol will have a loyal following. There is always apprehensiveness to completely redesigned cars.

I reckon it looks pretty good.

But then when you drive a pig ugly ute like I do, most cars on the road look pretty good.
