2017 Nissan Armada Downers Grove IL
After making a disappearing act in 2016, the Nissan Armada is back for Downers Grove IL drivers to enjoy. Sometimes it takes time off and a breather for a model to be re-envisioned and made better than ever, and this is exactly the case for the 2017 Nissan Armada. The full-size SUV segment offers some stiff competition, and the Armada is prepared to take them all down with its powerful base engine, silky smooth ride quality and premium interior materials. Naturally, it’s an easy choice for many.
A one year absence from the market naturally means the Armada was given a full redesign for 2017. What this means for those who have been long eyeing up the model is that the Armada not only has a new look with a bold stance and rugged front-end design, but the specs to back it the appearance. The 5.6-liter V8 engine now offers 390 horsepower, a boost from the 317 horsepower of the 2015 model year. Fuel economy remains about the same, at 14 city and 19 highway mpg for the base model.
It’s basically a fact that you can’t drive a full-size vehicle and expect it to be powered by a tiny engine. If you want a bigger model, you need more power. Which is why the 2017 Nissan Armada has a 5.6-liter V8 under the hood that’s paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission with Tow/Haul Mode.
A full year is a long time to not see a vehicle on the market, so you might not remember exactly what the Armada looked like before the redesign. The most notable changed were made to the front end, where the grille is widened in the front and the bumper gains a slatted appearance for a rugged look.
The 2017 Nissan Armada comes in three trim levels, starting with the SV. Standard features include automatic LED headlights, roof rails, rear privacy glass, keyless entry, Nissan Navigation with an 8-inch screen, dual-zone temperature control, power windows and lock and heated front seats.
