Nissan wants to be friends with off-road enthusiasts again

Nissan wants to be friends with off-road enthusiasts again

Armada sails deep inland, outfitted with a mountain of gear

Nissan is throwing another multi-day overlanding bash ahead of the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona, this week. Last year, the carmaker debuted the Titan Project Basecamp overlanding pickup at the expo. This year — even though Nissan's event is called "Titan Adventure" — Nissan went with a survivalist SUV called the Armada Mountain Patrol. Other than the fact that you're more likely to see a feral Martha Stewart in the deep woods eating canned rations before you'd see a bugge

Teased

The Arizona event will be streamed live on Facebook

Last month, Nissan announced it was working on a custom overlanding version of its largest SUV. Dubbed the Nissan Armada Mountain Patrol, it's a follow-up to last year's Nissan Titan XD Project Basecamp and the Nissan Armada Snow Patrol we drove earlier this year. Until now, all we've seen are early renderings, but the automaker has released a shadowy teaser image just ahead of the Mountain Patrol's full reveal tonight in Arizona.

Everything you need to camp anywhere

Nissan is following up on last-year's expedition-ready Titan Basecamp pickup with yet another expedition-ready vehicle. This time the company is going with its Nissan Patrol full-size SUV and it looks pretty sweet. From the renderings, it looks like it's getting a number of off-road staples such as big steel bumpers, a substantial suspension lift, big tires, lots of auxiliary lights and a winch. It also has gas cans, traction boards, and a rooftop tent. It should have everything you need to camp

We'll keep this list updated as we keep driving new models.

If you have a large family, lots of cargo to haul, or big stuff to tow, you might need a fullsize SUV. These are our favorite large utility vehicles.

First Drive

Pretty fly (for a big guy).

The new Nissan Armada joins the QX80 on the Patrol platform. It's a big improvement. The Toyota Land Cruiser should watch its back.

All puns aside, Nissan's new Armada is an Americanized Patrol, and we like it.

The 2017 Nissan Armada goes global by sharing the platform and styling with the Nissan Patrol, and the eight-passenger SUV also has a more powerful V8 engine.

​Nissan's Land Cruiser rival may become our next Armada, replacing the Titan-based SUV on sale now.

Recalls

Nissan is recalling 299,000 Versas because a trim piece can trap a driver's foot, and the company is bringing in 1,557 Armadas to check the seatbelts.

Thinking about buying a Toyota Prius but can't figure if the initial purchase cost will be offset in the long run enough to make it a smart buy? Then you're probably reading these words on AutoblogGreen and not on Autoblog. But beyond that, Consumer Reports has some good news for you.

Report

The Nissan Armada is aptly named, because in relative automotive terms, it's not just the size of a ship – it's the size of a whole fleet. And that, according to reports, isn't about to change.

Report

Intent on not eliminating itself from consideration, and adapting to the way consumers research new car purchases, Nissan has announced price discounts now in effect, indefinitely, on seven models: the Altima, Armada, Juke, Maxima, Murano, Rogue and Sentra. It was found that Nissan's price points fell outside the competitive pool when prospective buyers searched for cars based on maximum price.

Moves are driven by Internet searches

Nissan is cutting prices on seven of its 18 models in the U.S., hoping its cars and trucks will show up in more Internet searches by shoppers.
