They use a different rating system. Same power. ;)
From another site:
Short answer: No difference. If you check the web site you will see that the horsepower on the Middle East model is rated and stated as 340 hp SAE Gross. That is not the same as SAE Net, which is how horsepower is listed in the US. SAE Gross 340 would work out to be consistent with SAE Net 305.

I had a little, light, quick musclecar back in 1970. It was rated at 275 hp. That was SAE Gross in those days. When the same engine was rated at SAE net, the numbers fell to 245.

Now, that little car had way more actual horsepower than its rating, either way. They kept the numbers artificially low for insurance pricing purposes.

The Armada engine and the Titan engine are identical, and I have no reason to believe that the Middle East Armada's engine is any different than mine here in the U.S.

Given the performance level of our trucks, it may well be that our engines are a little under rated, under either SAE rating system.

I am affraid TripleBlack is wrong on this one. What you have seen is the Expat version to allow them to out run the terrorists :nana:

Also the warm balmy air of the Magic Kingdom allows our Armadas to run much faster than your American ones :moon: :thumbup:







Actually TB is right.....maybe.....read an interview with some Nissan big wig who said there can be upto 500 differencies per model in vehicles sent to the Middle East.

Oh, wow. Are you even an adult? It was a joke, no more no less. Get over and don't read this thread again that way you won't have to see his horrid comment.

I hate PC crap also. But Clu258 is from Saudi so I understand his concern. Generally though I like to keep my non PC comments for face to face encounters. Ticks people off more. Merry Christmas everyone! ;)

Now I think I remember reading about this, I believe gross was without any parasitic accessories (alternator, PS,AC....etc). SAE net reflects the true real world output with all the power consuming accessories. I must be really stupid or really smart or maybe a bit senile because I think I just answered my own question, duh. :duh:

You did answer your own question, and very well. If you check that web site very carefully, you will see that the measurement is SAE GROSS, while in the US, the measurement is made at SAE NET spec.

Same engine. Same exhaust. Same intake. Same ECU. Same horsepower.

Even though they are the same, both are underrated.

I am from Bahrain and I was going to raise the same issue (340HP). Can anyone contact Nissan factory in US to sort this doubt out? I think that will solve our issue. just an idea ... no hard feelings all,, we all share the same car but from different cities and countries. I was in US for 4 years and I know that the Americans like to joke around. Stay cool all.

Yeah, no difference. Just a different rating system. There is only one assembly line and one set of mechanics going into all the Madas, QX and Titans.

I'm from NYC and so I'm even more prone to poking fun. Americans love their freedom of speech. We also react pretty strong against having someone try to take that away.
One of my favorite quotes: "Political correctness is tyranny with manners."-Charlton Heston. Basically look at it this way. Were you physically injured or just insulted. Insulted is not anything that is worth worrying about. Just insult back and get it out. Someone hitting you over the head with a pipe wrench is. More often than not, insulting is a form of flattery or bonding. I wouldn't insult anyone in person who I wasn't familiar with, but my buddies rib on each other continuously. Great laughs. That's more the atmosphere here. ;)

Hey Triple, our birthdays coming up soon. What are you getting?
Furniture. My house will be built in Sept. Looking at a couple of Natuzzi Pit couches, Alfresco BBQ, TVs, Desk for the office, etc. For the Mada, Stainless bug guard, grille, and tint. May also pick up an AR15 for giggles.

Go for the AR-10 (its .308 instead of .223). I am getting one of those next. Sounds like a fun birthday!

This has to be a joke right? clu, are you actually upset about the fact that the camel is probably more prevalent than the horse in Saudi Arabia, therefore people here make reference to that fact? I mean its obvious to me that it may take 340 camels to equal 305 horses... :rolleyes: ;)

And hey, my '07 has 317HP! Woohoo!!! Now what is that in CP? About 352?
