Get to Know About The 2018 Nissan Armada

If you happen to visit a Nissan dealer in SC, be prepared to see a new full-size SUV—the 2019 Nissan Armada. The new Nissan Armada came out in 2019, but the 2018 version certainly deserves the consideration of a discerning car buyer.  This version of Nissan's creation provides sufficient power, utility, and room—all of which make it suitable for both the usual runabouts and long-distance travel.

The 2018 Nissan Armada is closely related to the outgoing Infiniti QX80 and the global-market Patrol. The four-wheel drive is optional, and the rear-wheel drive is standard. The SUV can accommodate eight passengers in its standard model or seven passengers if the optional second-row chairs for the captain is open. Here are the key features of this Nissan baby:

·      Engine: The 2018 Nissan Armada comes with a 5.6-liter V-8 engine with 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque coupled with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Talking about EPA fuel ratings, the car has 13/18 mpg with four-wheel drive and 14/19 mpg on highway/city. A properly equipped version of this car can tow up to 8,500 pounds!

·      Design: Although the 2018 Nissan Armada resembles the Infinity QX80, it looks entirely different when viewed from the front owing to its blocker design and Nissan's V-motion grille. On the inside, you can see soft-touch materials on major surfaces with lots of wood trim, leather, and chrome accents throughout. The cushy and spacious make it comfortable, and the 16.5-cubic-feet of cargo space behind the third row makes it the best car for supply runs.

·      Tech: The 2018 Nissan Armada comes with an 8-inch touchscreen-based infotainment system that features satellite radio, navigation, and a 13-speaker Bose audio system. A dual-screen entertainment system comes as standard for passengers in the back, but its only available in two trim levels, namely the Platinum and Platinum Reserve.

·      Safety: This model of Armada comes with active safety features like moving object detection, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind-spot warning, rear automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assistant. As such, you can be sure of on-road safety with these impressive features of the car.

Although the new Nissan Armada may be on your mind, you should consider the 2018 version to get almost the same features with a little cut in price. It has good agility, maneuvering capability, and controlled revs. But before you invest in it, make sure you visit a Nissan dealer in SC to know more about its features and on-road price.
