After more than three years, Nissan’s camera-in-a-rearview-mirror is finally all set for public debut, and you can have it first on the 2018 Armada.
Nissan’s Intelligent Rear View Mirror will make its production debut on the 2018full-size SUV, when it goes on sale on Sept. 1. Not only the upcoming car will feature the rearview mirror technology, it will bring various tricks as well.
Nissan has somewhat similar technology what General Motors has for some time now. Flip a switch on the bottom of the mirror, and the traditional rearview mirror converts into a screen that uses a rear-mounted camera.
Whenever the camera is active, the LCD screen inside the mirror is able to prevent the mirror from forming a reflection at the same time. And when the mirror is working as a regular mirror, the screen efficiently disappears from the view.
Aside from the mirror camera, additional upgrades to the Armada’s second model year include an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with HD Radio, SiriusXM satellite radio and additional USB ports throughout the cabin.
The 2018 Nissan Armada will have a price tag starting from $45,600 for the base SV trim with rear-wheel drive. However, adding four-wheel drive will increase the price to about $48,500. If fanciness is really your thing, the top-trim Armada Platinum 4WD will set you back at $61,950, which is comparatively more expensive from the base price.
