The second generation Nissan Armada debuted at the 2016 Chicago show with the older chassis borrowed from the older Patrol (2010). Both these models have so far been known as SUVs belonging to the “Stone Pot” category, winning the hearts of users due to their durable and stable performance.
In fact, the Armada/Patrol is rated quite well in regions such as the Middle East, where the advantage of above maneuverability is very important. However, the next generation of the car promises to add new strengths beyond the above factors.
theo automotive news, The next-generation Nissan Armada was announced in late August at a meeting with its North American dealer. A dealer representative, who has seen the car with his own eyes, said that this name-line will be bigger and more aggressive than before, in order to maintain the masculine outlook available.
However, the interior of the car promises to be different with more luxurious materials, bigger screen and advanced comfort, safety and driver assistance technologies. According to eyewitnesses the area “looked like a Range Rover”.
This factor can speak about the luxury of the cabin and shows the difference between the Nissan Armada/Patrol and the Infiniti QX80 Luxury Edition.
The engine used is said to be a 424-horsepower twin-turbo V6 mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Previously, this namesake line used a 400-horsepower naturally aspirated 5.6L V8 with a 7-speed automatic transmission and 2-wheel drive. However, this configuration is no longer viable due to excessive discharge.
The torque hasn’t been revealed but it has been confirmed that it is much higher than the 560Nm mark of the older version.
The global Armada chassis, the petrol, also promises to return soon with similar changes. Earlier in this name line there was a high-performance variant of the Nismo which promises to bring even more car parameters than the default V6 variant. It will be a formidable weapon to help the Nissan Patrol compete with the Toyota Land Cruiser 300.
The Nissan Armada in North America and the global Patrol could launch in 2024.
