2017 Nissan Armada vs. 2015 Nissan Armada
Long-time musicians like Bruce Springsteen and Madonna are known for their crowd-pleasing abilities. They work hard, but they also play hard - they are always up for the challenge, even performing for hours in a packed arena. And it's in the spirit of pleasing large crowds that we present a comparison of the 2017 Nissan Armada vs. 2015 Nissan Armada, so you can see the evolution of this versatile, hard-working full-size SUV from one model to the next.
The 2015 Armada tips the scales at 5,267 pounds in base models, which is a couple hundred fewer than the 2017 Armada, but still has the raw power you need to carry up to eight passengers. Such as its 5.6L V8 engine, with 317 HP, and its ability to tow up to 9,000 pounds in 4WD models. That's serious power.
The 2017 Armada is a little heavier than the 2015 model, but it also has more power, with 390 HP. It takes a slight reduction with a towing limit of 8,500 pounds – still over four tons – but that comes standard in all models. The 2015 Armada's base models tow between 6,500 (4WD) and 8,200 (2WD) pounds.
Make Way for the King of Full-Size SUVs – The Nissan Armada
What makes the Nissan Armada of any year a cut above the standard SUV models is not just its size and power, but the options it gives you. Not only does it come with space for eight passengers, or seven if you opt for comfy standalone second-row captain's chairs, but it has all the room you need to pack anything they need to bring with them, from middle-school instruments to equipment for a hiking trip. The 2017 Armada has 95.1 cubic feet of cargo room, significantly more space than midsize SUVs or crossovers, while the 2015 Armada has a little more space at 97.1 cubic feet.
Both have an available Nissan Mobile Entertainment System, which is a dual-monitor 7-inch screen entertainment system. Whether your passengers are eight years old or 80, pop in a movie and keep complaints to a minimum for long trips. "Are we there yet?" will be replaced with "aw, we're here?" And if you need to carpool for work or school, the 122.7 available cubic feet of passenger room in 2015 models or the 63.8 inches of shoulder room and 59.2 inches of hip room in 2017 Armada models will ensure everyone is comfortable, especially if you have top-line models with leather-appointed seats and heated front and second-row seats.
