Nissan Cancels Quest, Armada, QX56

Word started to spread late last year of the demise of Nissan’s Armada, Quest and Infiniti QX56 models, and it appears as though those reports were at least partially correct. Nissan confirmed on Wednesday that U.S. production of the Armada/QX56 and Quest will end by 2010.

Although none of the three will be produced in the U.S. after 2010 – the trio’s Canton, Mississippi plant will be converted to produce Nissan’s new commercial vehicle line – it’s not necessarily the end of the road for the QX56 and Quest. According to Motor Trend, Nissan will continue producing the QX56 and Quest minivan in Japan after 2010.

However, the future of the Armada nameplate is looking a little bleaker. Nissan did not include the big SUV in its ‘future production’ list and made no mention of switching its production to Japan. The Armada has largely fallen out of favor with U.S. buyers, with sales plummeting more than 50 percent last year.

The Armada’s platform mate – the Infiniti QX56 – hasn’t exactly been a sales success either, so it’s quite possible that the luxury ‘ute will receive a total overhaul for the 2010 or 2011 model year. John Capps, chairman of Infiniti’s National Dealer Advisory Board, recently revealed that a new version of the QX has been green lighted, with the new model set to take the form of a more conventional CUV model. The new QX will likely be designed in the same vein as the QX4, giving Infiniti a true Lexus RX competitor.

Now there's a shock!

You're right the shocker is that they are "replacing" these vehicles with the soon-to-be sales leader. The Nissan Cube.
