The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Nissan Armada page on 14 October 2019, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Nissan Armada is a full-size SUV. An upscale version of the Armada was sold as the Infiniti QX80. From 2003 to 2015 the Armada was assembled in Canton, Mississippi based on the Nissan Titan. From mid-2016 onwards, the Armada is been built in Yukuhashi, Kyushu, Japan and shares the same platform as the Nissan Patrol, with American-specific modifications, and went on sale in late Summer 2016 as a 2017 model.

First generation (2004–2016)

Developed under Carlos Ghosn's NRP (Nissan Revival plan), using the platform code WA60, from September 1999 to 2003 under lead designers Shiro Nakamura and Diane Allen and chief engineers Yuzo Sakita and Larry Dominique, the 2004 model Pathfinder Armada was unveiled on April 17, 2003 at the New York Auto Show. In January 2001, a final exterior design by Giovanny Arroba was approved by Sakita, Allen, Nakamura, and Nissan executive management, with the final design freeze being completed in July 2001 alongside. Prototypes based on the Y61 Patrol were hand-assembled as mules from 2001, with the first WA60-specific prototypes being completed and sent to testing in early 2002. Design patents were filed in 2003, with production starting on August 14, 2003 and going on sale on October 1, 2003. The Armada had a 5.6 L, 317 hp (236 kW), 385 lb⋅ft (522 N⋅m) torque VK56DE V8 engine, a 5-speed automatic transmission, and a choice of rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. The switch to the Armada name occurred in September 2004, where it received new badges. A facelift was designed through 2005, being introduced in early 2007 for the 2008 model year.
