After taking a year off, Nissan brings back the Armada with an all-new design. Here’s a 2017 Nissan Armada overview so you can see what it has in store.

In its new form, the Armada comes with substantial improvements from nose to tail. Right from the start, you’ll notice the Armada’s new bold styling. The Armada rides on top of new architecture, which it now shares with the Infiniti QX80. However, the Armada still keeps its rugged body-on-frame build, letting it tow up to 8,500 pounds.

Buyers will find a strong 5.6-liter V8 under the hood, rated at 390 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. This engine delivers more power and better efficiency than the outgoing engine. 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.

2017 Nissan ArmadaBack when it first made its debut on the market, the Nissan Armada—like other full-size SUVs—wasn’t built to be a smart, technology-packed vehicle. However, 2017 is a new era, and the new Nissan Armada for the 2017 model year makes use of plentiful tech to compete in a segment and automotive market that increasingly rely on connectivity features to sell vehicles.

It doesn’t disappoint, thanks to new safety systems, a new Around-View monitor, and various other strides in performance that make it a great off-roading vehicle.

The Around-View Monitor is useful in multiple situations, from backing up, to changing lanes on the highway, to navigating difficult terrain. This is due to its ability to display a bird’s-eye view of the area around the Armada. Additionally, the Nissan Armada has several of the most “basic” safety tech systems, like blind spot detection and lane departure warning.

The Nissan Armada is also built on the same Patrol platform as the Infiniti QX80, which means you get the look and space of a luxury-class vehicle for a fraction of the cost. Premium features like a 13-speaker Bose audio system, an 8-inch color touch radio, and LED exterior lights come standard on the Armada, too, so you won’t be missing any amenities, either.

The new Nissan Armada offers a ton more features for families in need of a large hauler, so make sure you check out the new 2017 model year loaded with technology and luxury materials. We’ve got the new Armada on our lot here in Vicksburg. Be sure to stop by Blackburn Nissan to check it out!

Nissan is Upgrading the Nissan Pathfinder for 2017

Roughly three years ago, Nissan revealed its latest version of the Nissan Pathfinder. The result was a SUV that was an instant hit for the brand! However, Nissan is not one to rest on its laurels. That is why the Nissan brand has announced some exciting news.

According to Drive.com, Nissan is upgrading the Nissan Pathfinder for 2017.

The 2017 model of the Pathfinder is set to undergo major upgrades for its exterior design, engine capabilities, and technologies.

Drivers will notice the first change to the Pathfinder when they first lay eyes on it. The latest Pathfinder has a newly-redesigned exterior, which helps it more closely resemble the rest of the Nissan family of vehicles.

The Pathfinder is also receiving some upgrades under the hood. The 3.5-litre V6 engine equipped to the Nissan Pathfinder will now possess direct injection, which provides it with more power and efficiency.

Finally, a new vehicle wouldn’t truly be upgraded without some great new technologies. The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder has been packed with more active safety technologies, such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Monitoring, to provide drivers with a ride that is not only safer, but more advanced.

If you already loved the Nissan Pathfinder, then you are certainly going to get a kick out of the brand-new 2017 Nissan Pathfinder!
