2017 Nissan Armada maintains body-on-frame construction


Redesigned for 2017, the Nissan Armada clearly took the high (class) road. It's still the large and rugged true-to-itself sport utility vehicle that we've loved since introduced in the early 2000's, but now, it's armed itself with all-new technology and luxuries.

Rather than falling behind the times, the 2017 Nissan Armada made sure to stay ahead of them. Find out what's new for Nissan's large and in charge SUV. There are more ways than one that the 2017 Nissan Armada has been redesigned for families.

Why the Nissan Armada had a body-on-frame construction
The Nissan Armada is one of the very few sport utility vehicles left to hold true to the traditional body-on-frame design? especially one that is redesigned. The reason behind this? While a large majority of crossovers have moved towards more sedan-like bodies for a ride that handles and feels more like a car, the Armada chooses not to.

(The Nissan Rogue and Murano are good examples of this. Both have fluid handling, are comfortable rides, and earn excellent fuel economy ratings.)

As for the Armada, it's the largest and sturdiest option you're going to find because of its strong and durable frame. It's truly built for utility and therefore is able to tow and go off-road with confidence. When properly equipped, it can tow up to 8,500 lbs and when it comes to finding an SUV this powerful and durable, there isn't a substitute for a steel frame.

Nissan Armada Engine Specs:
  • 5.6L V8 Engine
  • 7-speed automatic transmission
  • 390-horsepower/394 lb-ft of torque
  • 8,500 lb tow rating

How many people can the 2017 Armada seat?
Total passenger count remains at eight for the Armada. Families who are growing or those who frequently utilize the third row in an SUV, the Armada is going to provide plenty of personal space. The second row of seats conveniently can accommodate child seats and carriers while this row also is easy to slide and fold down in order to access the third row.

Oh and we better not forget to mention; the Armada was designed with backseat passengers in mind. They will be able to adjust their own temperature settings and the Tri-Zone Entertainment System with dual 7? monitors will provide endless entertainment for even the longest road trip.
