The All New Redesigned 2017 Nissan Armada
The Nissan Armada has been around for about 12 years, and it’s finally getting a redesign. This full-size SUV gets a new look, new specs under the hood, and a new feel for drivers. No matter what you’re looking for in your next vehicle, make sure to take the time to check out the newly redesigned 2017 Nissan Armada.
Under the Hood
One of the biggest improvements made to the 2017 Nissan Armada is that it will sport a 5.6-liter direct injection V8 engine. This engine gets 390 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. While this is expected to be the standard engine, many experts hope that the Nissan Armada will have other engine options available, such as the 5.0-liter twin-turbo Cummins Diesel V8 that is used in the Nissan Titan. The SUV is also expected to sport a seven-speed automatic transmission. All trim models should be offered with either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive options.
The Nissan Armada is known as a large vehicle, and has long been one of the automaker’s best full-size SUVs. The new redesign shaves off 2.1 inches in the wheel base and 2.2 inches of overall height. However, the 2017 model is 1.2 inches longer than the previous models and 0.6 inches wider. On top of that, the vehicle is somewhere between 125 and 300 lbs. heavier than previous models. Nissan increased the rigidity of the vehicle by approximately 20 percent, making the ride smoother.
There are currently three trim levels expected—the SV, SL, and Platinum models. The specific features for each model have not yet been released. However, you can expect a number of great features on each. With the redesign of the 2017 Nissan Armada, you’ll see a number of upgrades and benefits to the exterior of the vehicle. The grille is distinctive and offers a clean, aggressive look that the previous version was lacking. In addition, you can choose between 18-inch or 20-inch wheels. LED headlights are offered as a stylish and beneficial way to easily see the road.
The inside of the Nissan Armada offers the most significant redesign throughout the vehicle. Choose between premium cloth seats or leather, and there are three interior colors available—almond, charcoal, and tan. With seating for eight, this SUV offers the space and flexibility you need in a new vehicle. The vehicle has already won Best in Class 2nd Row Headroom, and it allows ample space throughout the vehicle for either adults or children. The rear seats offer a 60/40 split, and the seats lie flat for maximum cargo space when needed.
From entertainment and tech features to comfort options, the 2017 Nissan Armada gives you what you’re looking for. The standard Bose premium audio system includes 13 speakers—including two subwoofers—to give you the ultimate in surround sound. A standard eight-inch touch screen navigation system allows you to easily get where you’re going. Heated and cooled front seats are an optional feature in the vehicle, allowing you the ultimate in comfort no matter when you drive.

With the redesign, the Nissan Armada offers several great safety features. While some of these will be standard on the vehicle, several are likely to be offered as optional additions. With intelligent cruise control, you can easily add speed and distance intervals to your standard cruise control options.
