2017 Nissan Armada Review
The 2017 Nissan Armada is an SUV built for the driver that enjoys a larger cabin with lots of space and power. The Armada makes its return after taking a brief hiatus, sporting exciting new technology and luxurious cabin space. Manufacturers wanted to thoroughly examine this model and make sure that it surpasses the quality and drivability of other SUVs in its class.
The Armada was originally designed as a cousin to the Nissan Titan’s pick-up truck, but over time it has developed its own identity. With three rows and a powerful but quiet V8 engine, the Armada delivers the energy of a truck with the handling of a car.
Our review of the 2017 classic is a way for drivers to get reacquainted with the model and all of its offerings. If you’re interested in checking it out for yourself, head down to your local Nissan dealer located in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
