The sturdy front of the Patrol was given an extensive redesign. Gone are the squared-off headlights and in comes the new C-shaped units almost resembling the Nissan Serena.
As if the Patrol is not imposing enough, the grill is more prominent now with the bumper receiving a little tweaking on its own. The bumper is now looking more chiseled on the corners complemented with reproduction air intakes and brushed chrome effects.

No, Nissan is not going to leave the rear the same as it has also received a little upgrade to complement the front. A new set of tail lights adapting a longer and wrap-around like design has now been incorporated.
The material of the tailgate is currently using sheet metal with more character lines than the 2019 Nissan Patrol. Similar to the front, the back will also be sporting a defined and more formed look. To complete its new look, 2020 also gets new alloy wheels. Since the current Patrol has been long-time loved by the population, the rest of the body will remain as it is.
