2017 Nissan Armada Diesel – The Much Needed Option

Nissan Armada is a full-size SUV which was made until 2015 based on Titan truck. With the new model that was introduced just a few months ago, Armada now uses Patrol’s Y62 global platform. With avoiding of a complete redesign, Japanese manufacturer will certainly continue to use some of the Titan’s underpinnings for 2017 Nissan Armada Diesel. With all of this stated, you can tell that Armada will not be an entirely new model but will nevertheless be a very impressive vehicle.

Design of Nissan Armada Diesel 2017

With current edition of Armada SUV already being on the market, the question of its diesel unit remains in the air. Nissan didn’t specify when will this happen, but they have planned a full-size SUV with diesel powertrain for some time now. The main reason why they are going to make something like this is that fact that US market is thirsty for non-petrol full-size SUV and the 2017 Nissan Armada Diesel could be just what the buyers want and need. With Armada no longer being based on the Titan truck and together with new exterior it received this vehicle also brings new interior for 2017 MY. In both of these departments, diesel powered model should stay unchanged compared to its petrol counterpart.


Engine and Transmission of 2017 Nissan Armada Diesel

The main change would naturally happen under the hood. 2017 Nissan Armada Diesel could come with 5.0-liter V-8 Diesel unit which should be, as we are used to, delivered by Cummins. This engine would be changed a little compared to the one used in Titan because SUV would be better suited with different outputs. The numbers offered on Armada Diesel would be close to 360 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. It would be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and the power would be transferred to rear or all-wheel drive depending on your choice. There were some rumors that weaker diesel engine would also be offered but that is highly unlikely because of the SUVs weight and the necessity for higher towing capacity compared to the petrol version as its less powerful powerplant than the one we mentioned, especially in the torque department, would find hard to deliver.
