The current Armada has been on the market since the early 2004 and since then it changed but only barely. Sales haven’t been on par with the competition and the car feels dated at best. Lucky for as and for Nissan as well there is going to be a 2016 Nissan Armada Concept which is not only going to show where the company is heading in terms of large SUV vehicles but also how the next generation Armada might look.
2016 Nissan Armada redesign
On the interior Nissan is going to work not only on the layout of it but also on the materials. The predecessor of the new 2016 Nissan Armada wasn’t really bad when you look at it but the seats were a bit cramped for such a big car and the equipment level was quite poor even when you compared it with cheaper cars. The standard level of equipment will now include triple zone automatic climate control, seven seats, satellite navigation and radio, leather upholstery, electric adjustments for the seats and steering wheel as well as a great infotainment system. The dashboard is now going to be lined in leather while the door covers will not use plastic but soft touch ABS and leather. Exterior of the new 2016 Armada will also change to the point that you will have to say that this is a new car. The front end is going to be identical to the new Titan while at the back the new Nissan Armada 2016 is going to have a much cleaner design than before.
2016 Nissan Armada 2016 specs
Engine wise, the old 5.4-liter V8 is going to be discontinued in the favor of two new engines. A petrol engine is very likely to come with the new Nissan Armada 2016. This will probably be a new 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 derived from that of the GT-R. It will easily make around 440 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque which with the help of a new transmission, it should drop fuel consumption by at least 30%. The performance will increase thanks to the more powerful turbocharged engine.
2016 Nissan Armada diesel towing capacity
The best part though is the 5.0-liter Cummins diesel which may arrive on the Armada at a later date. This would provide more than 300 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque and very similar fuel consumption to the new V6. With diesel engine 2016 Nissan Armada towing capacity should be better than 2015 model’s 9,000 pounds.
Release date and price of new 2016 Nissan Armada
While the 2016 Nissan Armada hasn’t been presented to the public just yet we expect it to come on the market by the end of 2015. Just like before, this large SUV will share a lot with the next generation Titan which also has a new chassis as well as new engines. The price for the Nissan Armada 2016 hasn’t been announced just yet but considering the things you get with the car, it is expected to cost over $40,000.
