Nissan’s flagship SUV has finally been redesigned.

Shown in the flesh for the very first time on the eve of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, the 2017 Nissan Armada will also be on the show floor for attendees to check out in person. Sitting on a fully-boxed ladder frame, the all-new Armada’s structure is 20 percent stiffer. The eight-passenger SUV is capable of pulling 8,500 pounds and when properly equipped, that number applies to either the two- or four-wheel drive models.

2016 Chicago Auto Show Coverage

Residing under the hood is a familiar 5.6-liter V8 engine with 390 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. If things are all looking quite similar to you, it should. The 2017 Nissan Armada is essentially a re-branded version of the Infiniti QX80, with matching wheelbase, width, overall length and height dimensions.

Scheduled to go on sale this summer, the 2017 Nissan Armada will come standard with a navigation system with eight-inch color display, heated front seats, a 13-speaker Bose audio system and dual-zone automatic climate control. Expect pricing to be announced closer to its launch.

    Like the Patrol now the Armada aka QX80! If price right foe the SL model, may buy one!

    I like it but it is just too much similarity on the exterior and interior and might as well get the QX80 over this. Nissan should made the interior vastly different from QX80.
