With the introduction of the all-new second-generation Armada full-size SUV, arriving at Nissan dealers nationwide in mid-2016, the last piece of Nissan’s transformation of its SUV and crossover lineup falls into place. As the largest and most powerful vehicle in the portfolio, Armada earns its flagship status by every measure – whether performance, refinement, advanced technology and even heritage.

This generation featured a rugged leaf-spring suspension on a ladder-style frame, with a robust 4x4 system. Overseas, Patrols were used as safari conquerors, along with providing the base vehicle for fire engines, vans and ambulances.
