2017 Nissan Armada SUV is New and Old, Get the Details

Published

2017 Nissan Armada SUV

If the “new” 2017 Nissan Armada looks overly familiar, that’s because it’s the North America (United States and Canada) version of the second-generation Patrol SUV that has been on sale in the Middle East, Europe and elsewhere around the world since 2010. It’s also nearly identical to the Infiniti QX80.

The Armada is the largest vehicle offered by Nissan, offering enough seating for up to eight occupants. It is visually distinguished from the Patrol and QX80 by a market-specific grille, sharper headlights with LED inserts, and what looks like a more rugged bumper.

Inside, the full-size, body-on-frame SUV comes with a long list of standard features, including an eight-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, and a 13-speaker Bose sound system. Nissan promises “Library level” noise levels, thanks in large part to the extensive use of sound-deadening material.

The North America-spec Armada is powered exclusively by a 5.6-liter V8 engine that produces 390 horsepower and 401 pound-feet (543 newton meters) of torque, sent to the rear or all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission. It can tow up to 8,500 pounds (3,629 kg).

As expected, a truck this big comes with many electronic driving and safety aids such as forward collision warning, backup collision intervention, lane departure prevention, intelligent cruise control, and distance control assist.

The 2017 Nissan Armada made its North American debut at the Chicago Auto Show and goes on sale in summer 2016. Stay tuned for pricing details.
