Hi all new member here. Don't own one of these, but maybe someday.

Looking at late 80s and early 90s model Safaris, what is the difference between a Granroad and a Kingsroad? Are there other models? I looked around a it and didn't see this info, apologies if already covered.

Thanks! :cool:

yup been covered here before in various places.. google granroad vs kingsroad there are a couple of sites that will help... but in essence...kingsroad is the higher spec version, leather seats, rear difflock, extra amplifier+ sub under the driver and pax seat, electric sunroof, leather steering wheel, rear aircon unit and (cooler box) gold 'NISSAN' badge (wooohooo!!)

just for the record leather seats, rear difflock, electric sunroof, leather steering wheel, rear aircon unit and (cooler box) gold 'NISSAN' badge (wooohooo!!) are not specific to KR.

and how to tell the diff between a Safari?
It says Patrol on the back where it should say Safari. ;) Pic was from Nissan Patrol GQ - 4WD. this is all they had to say about the high roof models...


Some long wheel-base Patrols come with a high roof (left). This gives extra internal room but can be squeezy in a low garage and can make finding a suitable roof rack difficult.
No kidding, eh?

I have yet to see anyone here post a pic of their Patrol badged high roof.

All the Y60 Safaris with 3rd row seating have the sliding window on the left, on the right as well if there is no beer cooler.

All the "camping" Y60 Safaris had 3rd row so they have the windows as well.
