Nissan moved into new territory with the Pathfinder Armada, a full-size seven or eight passenger SUV. It was based on the new Titan pickup truck and featured a full length boxed steel frame and four wheel independent suspension. A powerful new 5.6-liter V8 helped it achieve the highest towing capacity in the segment. THe second and third rows of seats could be folded flat for maximum cargo carrying capacity. Captains’s chairs were available as an option for the second row. Optional 4WD featured a two-speed electronic transfer case that let the driver choose low gearing for off-roading.
