Nissan's gigunda Tahoe/Expedition fighter, the Armada, is also getting a visual cleanup for the Chicago Auto Show. Outside, the change is most evident in front, where a subtly reshaped grille and lower fascia opening freshen things up. "V8" badging now adorns the SUV's flanks as well. Otherwise, there are no monumental changes to speak of.

Head inside, however, and the changes are numerous and for the better. The instrument cluster receives all-new gauges which are better looking and probably more readable. The center stack has been completely redone, with cleaner integration for the nav screen, new radio and HVAC controls, and repositioned, reshaped supplemental buttons/knobs for things like the hazards. Wood (or simulated wood) trim has been added to the dashboard and from the looks of things, the door panels have been redesigned as well, with new armrests playing home to the window controls.
Other fun stuff available on the '08 Armada includes power-fold third-row seating (always nice), DVD nav, and Bluetooth integration. The interior updates (shown after the jump) really are the story though, as they're a big improvement over the '07.
