The new Patrol is almost ready for the debut. Fans of the Armada full-size SUV are also expecting big updates on their favorite model. The prototypes of the Patrol are already out. Does it mean we will see the 2021 Nissan Armada starting the new generation as well?
A model for the 2020 season is pretty much the same as its predecessor. The company is taking a break before they arrive in the market by a storm. Well, we must break the hearts of fans waiting for the diesel engine – it is not happening. The company discontinued the only large model with such a drivetrain, Titan XD truck.
Patrol Changes That We Could See on the 2021 Nissan Armada
The new Patrol SUV is almost ready for production. It shows a lot of new things, and fans in the US already made a parallel between it and the 2021 Nissan Armada. So, the new full-size model for North America could bring more angular design with a larger V-Motion grille. We see more openings under and on the side of the front bumper. The tail is also new, especially lights there. The upcoming Armada could adopt fresh styling.
According to multiple sources, the new 2021 Nissan Armada will offer more than its predecessors. The company will update the interior and offer more space, in the first place. Also, there are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard features. We expect news about the autonomous drive Level 4. Chiefs announced this, but they weren’t precise which models will be the first to get it (and when).
Under the hood of the 2021 Nissan Armada remains a 5.6-liter V6 unit with 400 horsepower. Engineers are pairing it with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The new generation of the SUV will lay on the same platform, so the fuel economy and towing capacity are not taking effects from the changes on the SUV. Armada can tow 8,500 pounds. Still, the fuel economy is decent for a vehicle of its size.
