Nissan’s redesigned Armada

With the introduction of the all-new second-generation Armada full-size SUV, the last piece of Nissan’s transformation of its SUV and crossover lineup falls into place. The 2017 Armada is the largest and most powerful vehicle in the Nissan portfolio, earning it flagship status. Unlike the original Armada, which was based on the Nissan Titan full-size pickup, the new-generation design traces back to Nissan’s popular global vehicle, the Patrol.

“My ultimate goal is to help prevent institutionalization of those with dementia. I want to play a role in providing a better life for them — a life where they can go about doing normal activities, a life where they can remain, to some degree, independent,” she said.
