2017 Nissan Armada

The latest generation of the Nissan Armada, a behemoth of an SUV, was unveiled Wednesday night at the Chicago Auto Show before the wave of press conferences began on Thursday morning. Prepared for the 2017 model year, the Armada has a refreshed interior and exterior that is ready for adventure, even if you have a large crew to bring along. This latest redesign of the largest SUV Nissan offers is also the last part of a complete refresh of the entire Nissan crossover and SUV lineup.

Since the Armada’s focus is on larger groups of people and families, safety is a top concern. The 2017 Nissan Armada will be available with the latest safety features from the Japanese automaker, including Backup Collision Intervention (BCI), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and Distance Control Assist (DCA), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), Blind Spot Intervention (BSI,) and Blind Spot Warning (BSW).

Under the hood, a new 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine and seven-speed automatic transmission are ready to move the vehicle forward. According to Nissan, the goal is to have this new ride on dealership lots by summer 2016.

The new Nissan Armada will be on display at the Chicago Auto Show next to the three Nissan Winter Warrior Concepts that are equipped with snow tracks to take on the next historic blizzard.
