The first major change you will notice with the 2016 Nissan Armada is the difference in weight. Nissan crafted the 2017 model with aluminum, carbon fiber, and other lightweight materials. The new version features the familiar body-on-frame platform. The front bumper was completely redesigned with rounded fog lights and air intakes that improve aerodynamics. Nissan also gave it a new front grill with a high-gloss chrome mask. This grill is between two large rectangular headlights with LED bulbs for a stunning look and excellent visibility. The rear end of the vehicle has a well-designed bumper and striking tail lights.
