Paired with the engine is a seven-speed automatic transmission. And buyers can choose between rear- and all-wheel drive.

Inside, the new Armada is packed to the brim with features. The quality of the interior materials gets a big boost this year with many premium materials like available leather. Drivers will also appreciate the tech amenities like standard navigation, Bluetooth, and Bose audio.

With seating for up to eight, desirable standard features, premium interior design, and rugged capabilities, the 2017 Nissan Armada is an ideal choice for your next family adventure vehicle.
