Nissan announced the 2nd generation of the Armada more than 4 years ago. However, they only released it back in the mid of 2016 and it wasn’t really the car people were expecting. The current 2019 Nissan Armada is actually nothing more than just a Patrol with slightly different badges. This isn’t all that bad as the Patrol is one of the better SUVs out there. However, it basically means the new Armada is more than 6 years old which is not ideal. Rumors about a revision already started to appear and it looks like there might be some truth to them.
This article is just a rumor!
2019 Nissan Armada Release date
Even though not official, it looks like the Japanese manufacturer might release a revised model with the future 2019 Nissan Armada. So far there is still far too little information about it. However, even so, the car is more than likely going to hit the market sometime in the late 2018 or early 2019.
Redesign and Rumors
Despite what some rumors suggested, the future Armada is not going to be an all-new car. In fact, we can safely say it will be a revised version of the current model. The new car might receive new engines, probably a new running gear as well as a new interior.
These changes should allow Nissan to keep the car on the market for at least a few more years. On top of that, if the price will not change much, the car should boast a far better value for money than before. This alone will be well worth the upgrade which will make the car that much more competitive.
2019 Nissan Armada Specs and Price
The current model gets a 5.6 liter naturally aspirated V8 with 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. This is actually one of the more powerful engines in its class which is surprising considering the Armada starts at just $46,000. However, it is not perfect.
The engine is far from efficient and it might feel a bit too lacking at times. This is mostly due to its high-revving character which is not ideal in an SUV. It looks like the future 2019 Nissan Armada might change that with at least one new engine. So far Nissan doesn’t really have a powerful V8 to replace their current Endurance series.
|2017 Nissan Armada||Price|
|Armada SV 2WD||$44,500|
|Armada SL 2WD||$50,000|
|Armada Platinum 2WD||$57,000|
|Armada SV AWD||$47,000|
|Armada SL AWD||$52,000|
|Armada Platinum AWD||$60,000|
However, it is safe to assume they are working on a successor, especially since the current engine will not be able to meet all the emissions standards in the near future. Considering the latest turn of events, Nissan might decide to develop either their new 3.0 liter twin-turbo V6 or a new engine for their heavy duty applications. Some suggested Nissan might use a new twin-turbocharged V6, likely with a higher than 3.0 liters of displacement, in the upcoming Armada.
This would provide closer to 400 horsepower and over 450 lb-ft of torque while using less fuel than the V8. The problem with this engine would be its cost but Nissan could alleviate that by using it in more cars. A new 9 or 10-speed automatic is also expected to replace the aging 7-speed gearbox.
Considering how “new” the current model is, the 2019 Nissan Armada is more than likely not going to change all that much. It will probably receive a new front end with more design cues from Nissan’s V-Motion2 concept. On top of that, expect a more aggressive set of design lines which most of its rivals are using.
This alone should make the Armada a far better looking car than its predecessor. The rear end will likely receive just a new set of tail lights and that’s about it. New rims are also a real possibility and Nissan may even add new colors across the range.
The car currently on the market feels a bit old, especially from the inside. While the materials, layout and even the available features are great, the design really isn’t. The new 2019 Nissan Armada will likely change all of that. Nissan will likely replace the dashboard with a far more minimalist-looking one.
On top of that, the car might receive new features such as a digital instrument cluster, a touch-screen based center stack and even middle and rear infotainment systems. As before, 7 or 8 seat versions will be available from the start.
