2017 Nissan Armada
The 2017 Nissan Armada has been completely redesigned from top to bottom this year, and delivers an experience that is hard to beat. It can tow and handle rugged off-roading, and it can tackle the urban jungle just as well. It features high-quality trimmings in the cabin, a quiet yet powerful V8 engine, supreme comfort, and responsive driving. It’s been a year since we’ve seen the Armada in production, but its return is a welcome one.
2017 Nissan Armada Engine Power and Performance
The 2017 Nissan Armada is armed with the 5.6L Endurance V8 engine that’s matched with a seven-speed automatic transmission with Tow/Haul mode. This heavy-duty engine lets the Nissan Armada reach a whopping 390 horsepower with 394 lb-ft of torque. While this vehicle can hit an impressive horsepower, you’ll be amazed to learn that this versatile SUV can tow up to 8,500 pounds.
Rear wheel drive is standard with 4WD optional, a feature some may welcome in a world where AWD has replaced the more utilitarian traditional 4WD.
The Armada comes with all the standard safety features you’d expect in terms of airbags, antilock brakes and comes standard with rearview camera. At the SL trim you can add blind-spot monitoring, forward collision and mitigation, and rear automatic braking—these features are standard at the Platinum level. At the high end, you also get blind-spot monitoring and intervention, lane departure warning, lane-keeping, and other phenomenal features.
