About The Nissan Armada
The Nissan Armada is a powerful full-size SUV, ready to whisk you and up to seven passengers away in comfort. Nissan calls its largest SUV in the lineup “rugged refinement" and it's easy to see why. With elegant interior touches and available 4WD on all trims and years, the Armada offers a little something for everyone. The upscale look and feel of the Nissan Armada are equal to its quiet, serene cabin. If your passengers are loud, at least you'll know the Armada is not contributing to the hubbub.

Nissan Armada Trim Configurations
When first released, the 2004 Armada was offered in three trim levels: SE, SE Off-Road, and LE. All three trims include a 305-hp, 5.6L V8 engine paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. Each is available with FWD or AWD.
Starting in 2007, the Armada became available in four trims, but the brand removed the SE Off-Road and replaced it with the SE and LE with a flex-fuel engine (FFV). This means those Armadas can run on any mix of gasoline or ethanol from basic fuel up to E85—same engine, but with a boost to 317 hp.
In 2010, the Armada line did away with the flex-fuel engine and switched to regular-gas SE, Titanium, and Platinum trims. In 2011 it changed again to SV, SL, and Platinum. This new set of trims stuck around and became the standard into the next generation.
For the 2017 model year—starting the second generation of the Nissan Armada—the SUV became available in the SV, SL, and Platinum trims, all with a 390-hp, 5.6L V8 engine mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The 2019 Armada trims are outlined as follows:
- SV: Standard features include cloth seats, four USB ports, Bluetooth®, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, an infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, voice recognition navigation, a 13-speaker Bose® audio system, satellite radio, and HD radio, and more.
- SL: Adds a power liftgate, remote start, and leather seats to the standard features.
- Platinum: When it comes to technology, this trim includes just about anything a driver could want, like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and a surround-view camera. It also includes ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, a rear-seat entertainment system, third-row electronic controls to fold the seats down, and a moonroof.

Reviews for Nissan Armada
Great all purpose vehicle
The Nissan Armada is sized somewhat between the Tahoe and Suburban, or between the Expedition and Expedition EL. This is our second Armada, our first having served us reliably for 10+ years. The 2017 is a huge step up from our old 2006 model in terms of design, appearance, standard features, and technology. It's all terrain capabilities are also improved quite a bit. From driving in snow and ice to loose dirt and pine needles the AWD system provides excellent traction and feels very sure footed. The suspension also now gives a smoother, flatter ride on winding roads. Off road, the suspension does a better job of soaking up bumps and rocks without resulting in much body roll/movement. All in all the 2017 Armada is a great SUV.
- Cabin Noise: Very quiet, laminated side windows are an example of the noise reduction efforts Nissan has taken with this vehicle.
- Technology and Entertainment: Stereo, navigation, entertainment, vehicle control system is very well integrated and easy to use.
- Power: The same size engine now makes almost 100hp more than our 2006 model.
- Fuel Economy: Fuel economy is not very good. Under 14mpg average, almost 20mpg highway.
- Seat Comfort:
Wonderful car at a great price
The total package is outstanding! The car is priced right to begin with, and is extremely comfortable. It has all the features and amenities that we like, and the ride comfort and handling is superb. On August, while on vacation we rented the Chevrolet Tahoe SUV. The Tahoe was fully loaded (Just like our Armada), cost $15,000 more and there is nothing to compare. The Armada outscored in every category that can imagine. We love our Armada!
- Seat Comfort: Makes driving a none issue
- Cabin Noise: None!
- Ride and Handling: Superb!
- Fuel Economy: Ass expected 11 MPG in city driving
The Armada is a steal!
When I was recently shopping for cars, I had no plans to buy a big SUV. I was looking for something like a 4Runner. In fact, I didn't even like the Armada. Then, my wife stated we needed something bigger for our family. After looking around the lot, we saw an Armada and figured "we'lol give it a test ride". We were hooked. It had great size, power and storage space (the lie flat third row is what actually sold us). The Armada is quite nimble for its size and has a turning radius of cars half its size. Most of all, I feel good while driving the car as it is a very pleasant driving experience.
- Cargo Space: Lie flat third row seats
- Ride and Handling: Very smooth ride, great turning radius
- Styling: Classic SUV looks
- Fuel Economy: Yeah, about that...
