The 2017 Nissan Armada wowed participants and press with its total top-to-bottom transformation at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. Wondering when the 2017 Armada will make its way to Cherry Hill Nissan’s showroom?
Read on for a full review of the Armada’s mega makeover and important information about when you can expect to see the Armada turning heads and taking names around Cherry Hill, Mount Laurel and Collingswood.
The 2017 Nissan Armada: At First Glance
The 2017 Nissan Armada is a full-sized SUV with tons of personality, practicality and a hefty dose of polish. At first glance, the redesigned SUV exudes a commanding presence and a modern vibe. The largest source this outer confidence boost comes from the integration of Nissan’s distinct V-Motion go-get-‘em grille and revised front styling featuring enlarged, bold LED headlamps.
Though the Armada and the luxury Infiniti QX80 have always run parallel in their design schemes, the 2017 Armada’s upscale outer guise is the most Infiniti-esque version yet.
SUV Handling, Truck-Like Capability
The 2017 Armada wears a new 5.6-liter direct-injection gas V8 engine with heighted power potential. The hearty V8 delivers 84 more horsepower at 390 hp and 16 additional pound-feet of torque than the outgoing model for enhanced throttle response and a hefty max towing capacity of up to 8,500 pounds when properly equipped. A resilient full-size SUV with a truck-based platform, the Armada’s major tow stats are a boon for boat owners, trailer titleholders and family vacationers alike. The Armada’s potent new engine also lives under the hood of the all-new Titan XD pickup.
The 2017 Armada continues to put Nissan’s All-Mode 4WD® technology to superior use in its four-wheel versions, transitioning seamlessly between two-wheel and four-wheel functions based on traction conditions at the wheels.
Load up in Luxury in the 2017 Armada
Evidence of the Armada’s upscale traveler status is clear in its quiet, high-quality interior that boasts ample room for 8 and a wealth of convenience and safety technology. Standard leather appointed seating, an 8-inch touch-screen with navigation and a premium audio system from Bose® deliver luxury-level value in the base Armada SL.
While official interior specs haven’t yet been released for the 2017 Armada, its slight wheelbase stretch suggests cargo room can only go up from the 2015 version’s 97 cubic feet of load space. The new Armada wears its predecessor’s 60/40 rear split-folding seats that fold completely flat for optimal use of cargo room.
Nissan’s Most Cutting-Edge Armada Yet
In addition to Nissan’s Shield of advanced safety elements, from full airbag protection to smart tire pressure monitoring, the all-new Armada offers a long list of new protection and visibility features that help you supercharge your awareness of your surroundings all from the driver’s seat. The basis of the Armada’s all-seeing safety suite is Nissan’s Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection which comes standard on all Armada models.
With advanced engine elements under the hood, major interior upgrades, and a wholly new refined and ready-to-run vibe, the new and improved Nissan Armada is a sophisticated family hauler and a force to be reckoned with. The 2017 Armada is expected to hit dealership lots in late summer of 2016. Interested buyers in Cherry Hill, Mt.
