The 2018 Chicago Auto Show will host incredible feats of engineering, mind blowing concept vehicles, and a glimpse of the automotive industry’s future, and Nissan is prepared to impress.

Making its debut at this year’s auto show in the Windy City is the Nissan Armada Snow Patrol, a “highly modified project vehicle, which takes Nissan’s flagship SUV to new heights.”

When outfitted properly, the Armada Snow Patrol, which is available in 2WD and 4WD, boasts a standard towing capacity of 8,500 pounds, a three-inch suspension lift, a one-piece Defender roof rack, menacing front bumper with grille protector bar, M-1A rock sliders/running boards for defense against road projectiles, double row LED light bar with spot and flood capabilities, and superior 35-inch-tall Pro Comp MT2 maximum traction extreme off-road tires.

“The one-off Snow Patrol project takes Armada out of the carpool line and onto snow covered mountains – returning Armada to its roots as an adventure-ready off-roader,” said Nissan.

The interior of the project vehicle is awash with leather-wrapped seats etched with cobalt stitching and seatback inserts featuring the Armada Snow Patrol logo.

The impressive power of the 2018 Nissan Armada full-size SUV, designed to take on the most demanding snow-covered terrains, is a result of the thundering 5.6-liter DOHC Endurance® V8 engine, which is expertly mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, Synchronized Rev Control and manual mode and tow/haul mode; this powertrain generates a whopping 390 horsepower.

“We think this vehicle is going to attract a lot of attention among visitors to the Chicago Auto Show,” said Billy Hayes, division vice president, Commercial Vehicles and Trucks, Nissan North America, Inc.
