To make the Nissan Armada Snow Patrol, the automaker started with your standard 2018 Armada SUV with its 390-hp, 5.8-liter V8, and seven-speed automatic transmission. Nissan replaced both the wheels and tires, adding 20-inch Cognito Series 61 wheels in satin black and Pro Comp MT2 off-road tires. Nissan also raised the suspension – two inches at the front and one inch at the back.

2018 Nissan Rogue Sport Review: Mini Footprint and Max Appeal .
It has plenty of panache and advanced safety features that come standard“Rogue Junior” would be a more apt name for this new subcompact SUV from Nissan. It looks like a shrunken version of the regular Rogue, but it isn’t any sportier to drive. It’s slower than its big brother and didn’t prove to be much nimbler.
