The new, second-generation Armada features a fresh exterior design, a comfortable full-feature cabin, enhanced performance and an extensive list of available safety and convenience features, including Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), Backup Collision Intervention (BCI), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and Distance Control Assist (DCA), Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Blind Spot Intervention (BSI) and Blind Spot Warning (BSW).
The new Armada also continues the nameplate’s reputation for value and choice, offering a range of three high-content grade levels, SV, SL and Platinum, in both 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive configurations. In addition, the Nissan Armada offers an exceptional array of standard features, including Nissan Navigation with NavTraffic and NavWeather information and 8.0-inch color display, heated front seats and 13-speaker Bose audio system.
In addition, the new Nissan Armada is built on the heritage of the Patrol, which has been a workhorse for the world for many decades. While it is intended primarily for family adventures here in North America, Armada remains true to its roots as a strong, durable and authentic full-size, 8-passenger SUV. As part of its adventure-ready spirit, the new Armada offers large towing capacity (up to 8,500 pounds) for both 4WD and 2WD versions.
Armada’s redesigned body features an aggressive stance with bold V-motion front grille and standard LED low-beam headlights and signature LED Daytime Running Lights. In the rear, bold combination lights include LED taillights.
Inside, the 2017 Armada combines style, roominess and premium interior comfort, including special emphasis on quietness and quick interior cooling and heating. “Library level” interior noise levels (at idle) are achieved through the use of acoustic glass on the windshield and the front side windows, as well as through expanded use (versus the previous generation) of sound absorption materials.
The new Endurance V8, while maintaining the same 5.6-liter displacement as its predecessor, offers an increase in horsepower to 390 from the previous 317, thanks in part to the addition of several advanced technologies, including new Direct Injection Gas and Variable Valve Event & Lift systems. Also new is the advanced 7-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the previous 5-speed automatic.
