Nissan has unveiled the 2017 Armada ahead of its debut at the Chicago Auto Show.

Essentially a rebadged version of the Infiniti QX80, the 2017 Armada features a familiar design but adopts a prominent V-motion grille that is flanked by LED headlights.  The SUV also has front fender vents, chrome trim, and an acoustic glass windshield that promises to keep the cabin quiet.

Speaking of the interior, it's quite luxurious as it features wood trim, metallic accents, and an impressive assortment of standard equipment.  Notable features include heated front seats, a 13-speaker Bose audio system, and an infotainment system with an 8-inch display.

Three different trim levels will available and the range-topping Armada Platinum comes nicely equipped with heated / cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, and a heated steering wheel.  The model also has leather upholstery and a rear entertainment system that has two 7.0-inch displays.

Power is provided by a 5.6-liter V8 engine that develops 390 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque.  It is connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional four-wheel-drive system.  Nissan was tight-lipped about performance data but confirmed the SUV will have a towing capacity of 8,500 pounds and is expected to offer best-in-class acceleration.

The 2017 Nissan Armada will go on sale this summer and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
