What the Middle Easterns have known and loved for years as the Nissan Patrol is now gearing up for a mid-2016 launch in America as the 2017 Nissan Armada. This big, beefy SUV is Nissan’s answer to Toyota’s iconic Land Cruiser, and it has one of the coolest car names ever.

Just as the name suggests, Nissan Armada is a roughty toughty car designed to take you and your entire family across swamps and deserts in utmost comfort and safety. The SUV is based on the Titan full-size pickup truck and has a 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance V8 with a 7-speed automatic transmission, although all-wheel-drive depends on the trim level you select.

But if you option your 2017 Nissan Armada well, not only do you get all-wheel-drive, you also get high-end features such as Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), Blind Spot Intervention (BSI), Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) Around View Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD), Nissan Navigation with NavTraffic and NavWeather information, 8.0-inch color display, heated front seats and 13-speaker Bose audio system.

What’s more, being primarily designed for the Mid East market, the car comes with seating configuration with room for up to eight passengers (people have large families in that part of the world) and Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control system with a second row curtain vent (the weather sucks over there). Other notable convenience features include 12-volt power outlet at rear of console, nine cupholders, four bottle holders, power door locks with illuminated switches and anti-lockout system.
