The 2017 Nissan Armada is all-new, entering its second generation. Like its luxury SUV sibling the Infiniti QX80, the Armada no longer is based on the Titan full-size truck but rather the rugged Nissan Patrol that has served overseas markets since the 1950s.
The 2015 Nissan Armada is virtually unchanged this year. There are a few minor trim changes inside, and SL and Platinum models get new 20-inch wheels.
About Nissan Armada
The 2017 Nissan Armada is the brand's flagship SUV, a 3-row brute that boasts plenty of room and capability for active families. Revamped for 2017, the Armada is now based on the Patrol, an iconic SUV that for decades has served as a military transport and adventure vehicle in global markets. With a powerful V8 engine and a slew of amenities, the Nissan Armada offers a lot of vehicle for its roughly $45,000 starting price. Highlights include impressive towing capacity and an optional safety system that can warn the driver if a vehicle two cars ahead suddenly slows. Despite its merits, the Armada faces tough competition in the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia.
