Introduced earlier this year at the Chicago Auto Show, the 2017 Armada is now available on order in United States from $44,400 MSRP without taking into account the $995 destination & handling fees. Nissan USA describes it as being an ‘all-new’ fullsize, eight-passenger SUV, but in reality it’s nothing more than an Americanized Patrol, a model which in other markets has been around since 2010 when the sixth generation came out.

The base price refers to the entry-level SV trim in 2WD, while the equivalent 4WD model will set you back $47,300. As standard, all models come with heated front seats, 13-speaker Bose sound system, an eight-inch color display, and navigation. Upgrade to the mid-range SL trim from $49,150 in 2WD guise (4WD starts at $52,050) and Nissan will reward you with remote engine start, power liftgate, 20-inch wheels, power 60/40 3rd row seat, Around View Monitor, and Nissan Intelligent Key.

As for the range-topping Platinum, it starts at $57,090 in 2WD specification and from $59,990 for the all-paw model. It adds a number of niceties, such as the power-sliding moonroof, front climate-controlled seats, Nissan Safety Shield technologies, and a Family Entertainment system.

Depending on trim, there are four optional packages to choose from (driver, moonroof, technology, and 2nd row Captain's Chairs) which are all detailed in the press release below. Buyers get to pick from one of the seven body colors available along with a host of safety and assistance systems.

Regardless of the version you go for, the Japan-built 2017 Nissan Armada in U.S. specification is motivated by a 5.6-liter V8 engine with 390 horsepower (291 kilowatts) at 5,200 rpm and 394 pound-feet (533 Newton-meters) of torque delivered to the road through a seven-speed automatic transmission. The engine has enough muscle to enable both 2WD and 4WD models provide a maximum towing capacity of 8,500 pounds (3,855 kilograms).
