Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
For 2013, the Nissan Armada now offers Bluetooth, a USB port, sliding sun visors with courtesy light and a 4-way power passenger seat on the entry level SV trim. A new Platinum Reserve package adds 20-inch dark chrome rims, dark chrome trim and 2-tone leather seating. The SV and SL models can now be equipped with dual 7-inch rear seat monitors, which are standard on the Platinum model.
The 2012 Nissan Armada SUV receives some minor upgrades including a power rear liftgate and heated front seats now standard on the SL trim. The Platinum trim receives standard heated second-row seats and a padded center armrest with the Captain's-chairs option.
Nissan has revised the Armada lineup for 2010 to consist of three models: SE, Titanium Edition and Platinum Edition. All models receive new body-colored side cladding with chrome strip, while the SE 4X2 trims gain standard front seat side-impact airbags.
Last year's LE Preferred Package, which features heated seats, power rear quarter windows, power folding mirrors and Bluetooth, is now standard on the LE. Also standard on the LE is the tow package, which includes a seven-pin wiring harness, 3.357:1 axle ratio, larger battery and auto-leveling rear suspension.
Nissan's mammoth Armada SUV may not have the name recognition shared by the long-running Chevrolet Suburban or Ford Expedition, but it certainly has the ability to steal market share from the domestic duo. The Armada shares its rugged boxed-frame chassis with Nissan's other big truck, the Titan. Equipped with a 317-horsepower V8 engine, the Armada can haul a family of eight and pull a 9,100-pound trailer without breaking a sweat. Where the Armada differs most from its domestic rivals is its styling. Some instantly fall in love with it, while some have said it reminds them of an over-inflated Rambler station wagon. Whatever you think of its look, there is no denying the Armada's track record of proven reliability and trouble-free service.

"We have had our Armada for 3 years and love it! My wife loves it too...she said it drives, and parks great for a "Big Truck" Just a tip to all who have this vehicle, or are considering it....We placed an Airaid Cold Air Intake on it and now get around 16 MPG in city driving and 20 MPG on Highway, (and we get 12 MPG towing a 23ft boat, first SUV ever that did this for us!)"

"WOW what a car. I live in Washington State and it rains a lot in here. I had Ford Explorer and when you drive on freeway when it rains if you catch pot hole filled with water your car is slowing down a little or you have to catch the stearing wheel, with ARMADA there is no problems it drives like a champ, and its Japanese car and they last long. If you have to pick SUV for your family from Escalade, Mercedes, GMC, Infiniti, BMW, Toyota and many more, Nissan Armada would be the top one I would pick. Because of the price, comfort, and durability."

"Performance is unrivavled, but comes at a cost (fuel). Has enough towing capacity for 98% of consumers. Acceleration is amazing. I've surprised many cars off the line. Comfort is one of the only drawbacks. Japanese cars notoriously have hard seats and this one is no different. But driving position is great which helps. Second row seating has more legroom than any other in it's class by a large margin. Third row folds flat unlike GM's. It also is pretty comfortable even for larger people on long trips. Nissan service has often been overlooked but I have always had really good service. In 2005, there wasn't a better choice for the money than the Armada. We got the LE with all the gizmos and an extended warranty for less than a lesser equipped Chevy Tahoe. After GM's redesign of the Tahoe, the gap is narrowed. It's a toss-up for me. Would you rather have a fold flat 3rd row (Nissan) or more comfortable seats (Chevy)?"
