A Nissan executive has confirmed the company’s Armada will be renewed
The Nissan Armada we have in Canada has been on our market since 2004. In 2017 Nissan trumpeted a new generation of the model, but in fact it was serving us automotive leftovers. In global market the Armada is known as the Patrol, and that model always seems to be a step ahead in terms of updates of the Armada we get.
Step ahead, but only in relative terms: the Patrol was last renewed in 2010. The next year, Infiniti debuted its QX80, built on the same foundation. Which means that consumers here had to wait seven years before getting the “European” model of the Patrol/Armada, in the guise of the QX80.
It’s clear the Patrol is starting to seriously age, despite the updates it has received over years to its visual presentation, the technologies it harbours and the equipment it features. The last styling tweak it received was just last September.
