008 NISSAN ARMADA
FARMINGTOM HILLS, Mich. (Feb. 1, 2007) Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) today previewed the new 2008 Nisan Titan full-size pickup, Pathfinder mid-size
SUV and Armada full-size SUVs at a press conference at the Nissan Technical Center North America, Farmington Hills, Mich. prior to their public debut at the
2007 Chicago Auto Show, February 9 18 at McCormick Place, Chicago.
The three new vehicles offer significant upgrades and enhancements, including the addition of new Titan Long Wheelbase King Cab and Crew Cab models, a new
5.6-liter V8 engine for Pathfinder, and new exterior and interior designs for Armada. The three new 2008 Nissan vehicles are scheduled to be available at
Nissan dealers nationwide beginning in spring 2007.
The addition of the Titan Long Wheelbase models and the first-ever V8 engine ever offered in the 22-year history of Pathfinder expand the available choices
for buyers of these two popular vehicles, said Larry Dominique, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. The extensive makeover of Armada,
which has topped J.D. Power and Associates APEAL study for the Large SUV class in 2005 and 2006, adds up to an even more attractive, more premium and more
complete Armada package for 2008 one that we think will continue to make Armada stand out in the full-size SUV class.
