The Pathfinder Armada SUV full-size

Born this year like the Titan, the Nissan Pathfinder Armada, they share engines, transmissions and quality.

Nissan's first full-size SUV, the Pathfinder Armada shares engines and transmissions with the Titan truck along with the safety features and a standard side curtain air bag that covers all three rows of seats.. Both the Titan and Armada have a "chiseled look" nose that makes their brand highly recognizable. Self leveling air shocks available on the Armada are designed to level you while towing a trailer which will be an asset with the rear independent suspension. With a slightly lower towing ratings than the Titan and a shorter wheelbase, the Armada is a very versatile SUV.
 
 

With seating for eight with the standard 3rd row seat. Also standard backup sensor will produces a solid tone 6 inches from the bumper. Running boards are standard. The optional power rear lift gate is a handy feature when your hands are full. A unique feature I liked on the Armada was the 2nd and 3rd row of seats fold flat fast and the front passenger seat folds over forward to load that long extension ladder or planks. Up to 14 cup holders for the eight passengers, this full-size SUV shows the direction American buyers are headed from mini-vans to more stylish larger SUV's. The Armada should be in showrooms soon, with the Titan out in December.

Independent rear suspension is the future with SUV's nice ride, which also gives you more leg room for the third row seat.

The auto air ride will level the Armada when pulling your trailer with a 9100# trailer capacity.

2004 Pathfinder Armada

GARDENA, Calif. (Sept. 25, 2003) - Nissan North America, Inc. today announced a starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $33,300 for the 2004 Pathfinder Armada full-size sport utility vehicle (SUV), which goes on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide on October 1. The Pathfinder Armada features a 305-horsepower V8, class-leading* second row roominess, class-leading* 9,100 lb towing capacity, and other features that will establish segment-leading credibility.

The product launch will be supported by a comprehensive marketing campaign designed to communicate that Pathfinder Armada enables off-road adventures for the modern, active family.

Pricing

At $33,300 for a 2WD SE, the Nissan Pathfinder Armada offers a full-size SUV with V8 power, full-size interior space, unique safety features and more standard equipment than comparably priced competitors such as the Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia.

The new Pathfinder Armada will be offered in 3 trim levels: SE, SE Off-Road and LE models in both 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive. A number of optional packages are available to allow buyers to order vehicles to their exact needs and desires.

The SE model, which will make up nearly a quarter of the overall mix, features a long list of standard equipment such as:

* A 5.6-liter V8 engine with 305 HP and 385 lb-ft of torque

* An electronically controlled 5-speed automatic transmission

* Engine speed-sensitive power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering

* 4-wheel disc brakes with Teves Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

* Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA),

* Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system with Traction Control,

* Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS)

* Rear proximity-sensors

* Side curtain air bags with protection for all three rows

* Fold-flat 2nd and 3rd row seats

The 2WD SE Off-Road model is offered at $36,450, while the more luxurious 2WD LE model comes in at $37,800. Four-wheel drive increases the price by $2,800. (Full pricing sheet is attached.)

"We intend to be the value leader in this segment," said Mitch Davis, Pathfinder Armada marketing manager. "We're equipping Pathfinder Armadas to meet buyers' needs - financially and functionally - not to get low-price bragging rights."
