The faith of the 2024 Nissan Armada is yet unknown. And while nothing is official at the moment, reliable reports are saying the Armada SUV will get a new engine. The goal is to cut thirsty V8 gasoline engine. Of course, Nissan plans to focus on fuel efficiency, like any other carmaker nowadays. Therefore, a new and smaller twin-turbo engine could be the outcome.
Besides that, the full-size Armada SUV will introduce numerous upgrades. That includes lots of exterior and interior changes. On the other hand, Armada’s body-on-frame structure and three-row interior layout won’t change. Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know.
Twin-Turbo V6 Engine Specs
The second generation of the Armada SUV came in 2017. After that, the mid-cycle facelift happened for 2021MY. Now, the new-gen 2024 Nissan Armada is on the way. New generation also means that Nissan is preparing for serious upgrades. The biggest one will be the new engine. It is a 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo output, replacing the current 5.6-liter V8 engine. The reason is the improvement in fuel efficiency. However, we don’t know that much about the new engine.
The current V8 gasoline unit delivers 16 mpg combined using a 2WD system. It produces 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. Reportedly, the new engine will develop about the same amount of power, but fuel economy ratings will be significantly better. Downsizing is nothing new. Whatsoever, Toyota did the same thing with the Sequoia SUV, just like Ford did with the Expedition model. Still, you can find larger V8 displacements in the segment, in models such as Jeep Grand Wagoneer or Chevy Suburban.
The interior of the 2024 Nissan Armada will also gain numerous changes and upgrades. That should include a completely new dashboard design. Generally, the interior design will be brand-new. However, the current platform should remain, which means the Armada SUV will deliver the same cabin space as its predecessor.
We are expecting more tech goodies, more standard features, and some new optional amenities. A 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen should come as standard. Nissan will provide new upholstery and the most recent driver-assistance aids. The current model has a maximum cargo capacity of 95.6 cubic feet, and we expect the same cargo area in the next-gen Armada as well.
Slowly but surely, Nissan is changing its recognizable design language. New 2024 Nissan Armada could be one of the first models to wear the new styling that Nissan plans to offer. This full-size SUV will dimensionally remain intact. However, the Japanese carmaker will add a new front fascia with thinner LED headlamps, a wider grille, and bigger air intakes.
On the other hand, the shape will stay the same. It is a robust SUV, but Nissan knows how to create a stylish and modern SUV, despite its bigger size. The Nissan Patrol will look the same as the new Armada, although this model will be offered outside North America. The rear section will probably gain a new bumper and new taillights. However, we are waiting to hear more official details.
2024 Nissan Armada Price, Release Date
The current Armada model starts at around $48,000, which means the 2024 Nissan Armada will cost closer to $50,000. The sales will begin next summer. Therefore, Nissan will provide the first official details in the following months, before the end of 2022.
