With the 2017 Armada, Nissan has adopted what is basically a U.S. version of the global Nissan Patrol SUV. The new Armada is a soulmate of the Infiniti QX80 once again, with a body-on-frame design and its eight-passenger seating. To distinguish it from the QX80, it gets new styling and new engineering, plus additional safety features.
Up front, the Armada features a bold, chromed version of Nissan's "V Motion" grille. LED headlights and daytime running lights are standard, and fog lights are standard on the SL and Platinum models.
Functional air intakes are located in the front fenders, and all four fenders have contrasting paint on the wheel flares. Perhaps the most noticeable feature of the Armada is the unique side window line, which angles sharply at the rear and imparts a sense of motion. Wheels are 18s on the base model with 20s for the others.
At the rear, the Armada has LED taillights and a prominent bumper than contributes to the Armada's 5-inch length advantage over the Chevrolet Tahoe.
With its Patrol body and QX80 frame, the 2017 Nissan Armada rides on some pretty serious hardware. The boxed frame is larger in key areas, increasing from 2.4 to 3.9 inches in height. All told, bending stiffness increases by 20 percent. To that ladder frame Nissan mounts double wishbone suspensions front and rear, as well as a load-leveling rear air suspension.
Nissan outfits the Armada quite well, too. Even the base model has heated front seats, a navigation system, and a 13-speaker Bose audio system.
This big SUV also has plenty of space. Nissan offers two seating configurations. The standard setup is for eight occupants with 60/40-split folding second and third rows. The Platinum model offers second-row captain's chairs. The Platinum also comes with a power-folding third row that takes almost 16 seconds to power up or down, which seems like an eternity.
