2022 Nissan Armada Nismo First Look

Exterior modifications of the newest 2022 Nissan Armada Nismo are mostly visible on the front. Basically, this version looks much more sporty thanks to the new front fascia with a honeycomb three-dimensional mesh grille, restyled LED headlights, and horizontal chrome strips with the Nismo logo. Compared to the regular model, Nismo also has some tweaks that will separate it. The new LED fog lights are present, and they are inspired by the Nissan F1 car.

The familiar Nismo red line wraps around the SUV comes standard as the attractive 22-inch, two-tone aluminum wheels.Besides, the Nismo also includes a rear bumper that boasts dark chrome inserts and slightly tweaked LED taillights. Four exterior colors are available, and buyers can choose between White Pearl, Black Solid, and Grey, and Silver metallic paint.

The comeback of the new 2022 Nissan Xterra might happen next year, after six years in quarantine. If you didn’t know, this stylish SUV was…

2022 Nissan Armada NISMO Engine

If it arrives, the 2022 Nissan Armada NISMO would come with some slight engine upgrades. It would continue with the same 5.6-liter V8 engine, with 28 horses more compared to the standard model. On the other hand, the max torque would remain the same. In numbers, this would mean 428 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. Of course, the engine would come in pair with the same 7-speed automatic transmission, while 4WD would be standard.

We don’t believe that this slight power increase would affect fuel economy, so the numbers would probably remain the same. For reference, the current model returns around 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.


We have no doubts that the 2022 Nissan Armada NISMO would come packed with loads of standard equipment. This refers to both tech and safety features. When it comes to tech goodies, we presume it would come standard with dual-zone climate control, push-button start, a 12.3-inch touch screen, navigation, a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio, wireless device charging, Bluetooth, USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Android Auto, wireless Apple CarPlay, 13-speaker Bose audio system etc.

When it comes to safety, the list of standard features would include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, driver drowsiness monitoring, adaptive cruise control, vehicle exit warning, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, and a rearview camera.

What’s new for the 2022 Armada?

The 2022 Nissan Armada received an exterior and interior refresh. These looks will most likely be carried over for the 2022 Nissan Patrol Nismo. Hopefully, because these two SUVs are so similar, we’ll get the Nissan Armada Nismo to enhance its off-roading abilities. 

According to Nissan Model, the 2022 Armada still uses the same 5.6-liter V8 engine with 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. But its output has increased by ten hp from 390 hp. Perhaps the Nissan Patrol Nismo will have even more muscle.

The powertrain is connected to the same seven-speed automatic transmission, and the Armada can tow up to 8,500 lb when properly equipped. The integrated brake control and trailer sway control are now available across more trim levels. 

Along with a new, more aggressive look that includes LED headlights, the interior has been refreshed with tech updates. You can upgrade to a new 12.3-inch touchscreen, include a Wifi hot spot, wireless phone charging, and more. All that’s missing is the Nismo off-roading package.
