The All-New Nissan Armada: Is It Really The Best SUV To Date?
It was with great pride that Nissan has recently announced that the company's all-new 2017 Armada full-size SUV has been selected as one of Autotrader's "2017 Must Test Drive Award" winners. Given the fact that there was a panel of Autotrader editorial staff, the consumer-focused award program has been specifically designed to put emphasis on the top 12 vehicles that car shoppers must see and experience to believe, which, in turn, will allegedly change their perception of not just the new model but the entire brand. For 2017, rather than redesigning the Armada with the use of the all-new frame from the Titan pickup truck, Nissan has decided to import and incorporate the Patrol, an SUV that has been on sale in world markets for years.
According to USA Today, the new one stands 17.4 feet long, noted for being an inch longer than the previous version; but experts said that its length alone doesn't sum up how large it feels. Nissan's Armada allegedly stands so tall at 6.3 feet that drivers will be glancing down when looking at those in most other SUVs. In terms of its interiors, the seats feel as wide as the Grand Canyon, like lazing in a leather-upholstered recliner rather than having your bottom nestled in a bucket seat. However, it is just but inevitable for it not to have any flaws; experts say that the spacious cabin also has its challenges as reaching for the radio station control knob on the passenger's side of the center console requires leaning over.
Furthermore, Automotive World reported that the all-new 2017 Armada is built on the heritage of the Nissan Patrol, which has been a workhorse for the world for many decades. Although it was initially created for family adventures, the new Armada remains true to its roots as a strong, durable and authentic full-size, 8-passenger SUV. With a starting price of MSRP3 of $44,440, Armada reportedly offers the best-in-class1 maximum horsepower, plus a range of class-exclusive2 available safety and security features.
As per Dan Mohnke, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations has revealed that Armada has apparently played an important part in Nissan's position as the fastest growing brand in America in 2016.That said, in 2017, Armada sales are up nearly 125 percent. Ultimately, as part of its adventure-ready spirit, the new Armada promises a standard towing capacity of 8,500 pounds for both 4WD and 2WD models, considering that it is properly equipped, of course.
