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 2014 Armada is a full-size traditional SUV for big families and big towing needs. Its small field of competitors includes the Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia. In the Armada, you get a very well-engineered SUV with a powerful V8, a 9,000-pound tow rating and seats for seven or eight. The foldaway 3rd-row seat – power activated on SL and Platinum trims – makes it easy to exploit the massive cargo hold. For inclement weather and/or muddy roads, 4-wheel drive (4WD) is available. Though prices have been reduced for 2014, this big SUV doesn't come cheap (from $37,885), and it's not cheap to feed. But, if you're not put off by the pricing, another hundred bucks per fill-up probably won't be of much concern.

"I picked up a 2004 Nissan Parthfinder Armada in June of 2013. My wife and I absolutely love it despite its shortcoming. We both agree that for her if it had the trunk space of an Expedition XL or Suburban she would have no complaints. Well I love this Suv from the outside in it's distinctive style curves and humps remind me of a MC Hammer song pumps and bumps for real and not for play. My buddy calls it a Rhino being a big guy (about 6'5 470lb.) I thought that I tould not be able to fit comfortably after having attempted to sit in all large SUV and while they had more room none of them were as comfortable height wise as the Armada. The width of the seats are a moderate issue as the seatbelt latch can dig into my right hip and the need to reposition while driving becomes a real headache. I suffer from chronic big guy automotive disorder love sports cars can't fit in any sports car I can afford. So the amazing 5.6 V8 and the response to my accelerator is absolutely amazing after 5 years of a ford freestar (oddly the same year as my Armada) this thing is a beast it gets up it goes it slows as if it were a vehicle half it's size. It has plenty of room storage space and on the freeway the gas mileage is better than the vans. Quarter of a tank from Las Vegas to St. George Utah, compared to a half tank for the mini van granted larger tank on the Armada, but whoa in four wheel drive this thing just claws up inclines and glides safely down declines. I would definitely advise anyone looking for a unique sporty and fun to drive SUV to hit up the Nissan Armada.."

"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)?"
