The 2017 Nissan Armada Platinum 4WD gives the customer a chance to do some “living large.” And it all starts under the hood. The Armada comes with this massive engine, with a 5.6-liter, 32-valve Endurance V8 churns out 390-horsepower and 394 lb-ft. of torque. Armada’s standard 8,500-lb maximum towing capacity makes pulling your full-size toys a breeze. And with up to 1,584 lbs. of maximum payload, you have ample carrying power for all your needs.
Armada®’s front and rear sonar system makes getting in and out of tight parking spots a cinch. With eight sensors looking out for static objects, you’ll get you an audible warning when you’re getting close. The newly-designed 20” x 8.0” 8-spoke wheels have a special chrome-clad finish and are made out of aluminum-alloy, making them both lightweight and strong. Dual power folding heated outside mirrors with puddle lamps and turn signals. Combat frost and snow buildup with heated outside mirrors. Innovative extras like puddle lamps and turn signals on the mirrors add safety and convenience to your journey.
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS). This standard feature—sometimes called stability control—continuously monitors your steering and braking actions, senses any oversteer or understeer, and compensates by reducing engine speed and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels. In addition, Traction Control System can sense front wheel slip or spin and responds by instantly helping reduce throttle which helps you both regain grip and maintain control of the road
The Armada features a heated steering wheel, meaning maximum comfort for you and your passengers. In addition to watching movies, you can play your camcorder through the Nissan Tri-Zone Entertainment System’s USB inputs or plug in your video game system on the large dual 7’’ head restraint-mounted monitors. Wood tone trim is strategically placed throughout your Armada adding a touch of class and craftsmanship.
