Nissan’s flagship SUV is designed for family adventures and fun, and has set the bar high for the competition. Each month in 2017, its sales have continued to exceed its sales projections. But for 2018, the bar just got set higher, with new standard features on all models, continued improved horsepower and towing, and–for the first time–an available new feature: Intelligent Rear View Mirror. Continue reading to see if the 2018 Nissan Armada is the right SUV for you!
New Standards Set
For the 2018 model year, formerly premium upgrades are now standard: including NissanConnect, Sirius XM Radio, an 8-in touch display screen, enhanced voice-recognition services, and extra USB ports for connectivity and charging on the go. In addition, the Armada set best-in-class horsepower among its rivals with its 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 and 7-speed automatic transmission.
New Intelligent Features
Nissan has been an industry leader in its development and implementation of safety features, including these frontrunners:
Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
Automatic Emergency Braking
Blind Spot Warning
Intelligent Around View® Monitor
These work together to help drivers stay more alert, informed, and protected while driving. The addition of the Intelligent Rear View Mirror is the first of its kind. By affixing a high-resolution camera on the rear of the vehicle, drivers can switch out their traditional rear view mirror to a high-quality live feed. This is especially helpful if the seats (8 in total!) are full, or if cargo is blocking the mirror. Look at the difference this small detail, available at the flick of a button, makes:
Here at Newton Nissan, we think our customers are worth more than our cars. That’s why we want to highlight some of those who join the Newton Nissan Family! Check out these smiling faces!

Newly-minted Dove-award winning artist Jaci Velasquez recently took the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum for a month-long test drive! It was her first time to drive a Nissan, and she was impressed by the many features that made her life as a busy mom easier. Read on to find out more of her favorite features!
A Smarter Back-Up Camera
Many makes & models now feature rear-view or back-up cameras to help assist drivers; however, the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder has a special upgrade. Instead of simply having the camera at the back, Nissan added both more cameras with the available Around View monitoring system, as well as the Moving Object Detection system. The combination of the two means you can back up your car seeing all of your surroundings: front, back, and side. You can even be alerted to objects that you cannot see!
Family Entertainment Package
This might have been Jaci’s favorite feature! With the available Family Entertainment Package, you can let your kids in the back watch 2 different movies–at the same time! Think of how much easier family road trips could go. In addition to the two screens in the back, there is one up front, which houses available navigation and Bluetooth. This front screen will also play the selected DVD if the car is in park! Finally, staying connected is easy–with multiple ports for USB, AUX, and even one HDMI.
We’ve all been there: hands full of groceries or equipment, keys stuck in a bag, staring at the rear gate of our car, wondering how to open it. With this vehicle though, you don’t have to worry: simply wave your foot underneath the bumper of your Pathfinder (SL and Platinum). And, automatically, the lift gate will beep and rise!
Simple, luxurious, and easy to use–these three words define the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder experience. Jaci got to experience it for herself, and so can you!
Cars under $10,000 are highly sought after for a number of reasons. You may be shopping for a back-to-school vehicle, an inexpensive vehicle to commute to work, or a handy second car. Regardless of the reason, finding the best used cars under $10,000 can be more of a challenge than you may realize.
Traditionally, new car franchise dealers send older trades to auction; but due to high demand, our team has decided to make select vehicles available to the public before they are offered to auction.

When you hear the word “Lexus,” most likely you think of high-end luxury vehicles. Other words that may come to mind include “conservative” and “expensive.” Not to worry though, Nissan gives you great, comparable options at a more affordable price. For example, let’s look at the 2016 Lexus RX350 and the 2016 Nissan Murano. The RX350 has a more classic, conservative exterior while the Nissan Murano has sculpted lines, a floating roof, and all-over better aerodynamics. As for the interior, the RX350 is more bland and conventional, almost mini-van-like. The Murano has a refined interior design, using premium materials, and keeping convenience as a priority. Safety features of the Murano also outweigh those of the RX350, with moving object detection and a braking system that senses not only the car directly in front of the Murano, but the car in front of that one — giving an extra helping hand when reactions aren’t as fast as we would like. Not to mention, there’s a small price difference of about $10,000. All in all, the Murano is the better choice if you’re looking for a safe, reliable, luxury crossover.
Having a brand new car would be nice, but unfortunately it is not always practical. Having a used car is a more plausible option for many of us, but it also brings worries about what may go wrong in the near future with repairs and maintenance. With Nissan’s Certified Pre-owned program, you can have peace-of-mind when it comes to owning a certified used vehicle. For more information on how the program works, watch the video below.
