The Armada is available in four different trims, each of which comes with a 5.6-liter V8 generating 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque, a seven-speed automatic transmission, and the option of four-wheel-drive in place of the standard rear-drive setup.
Every model comes with LED headlights, cruise control, heated mirrors, and a touchscreen infotainment system that includes an eight-inch display, navigation, Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a Bose 13-speaker sound system. Heated front seats, parking sensors, and forward-collision warning with autonomous emergency braking are also included. Further features that are available include a power liftgate, a power-folding third row, remote start, a surround-view camera, leather upholstery, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. Top trims get a sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, heated outboard rear seats, and lane-keep assist as standard.
The Armada has a starting MSRP of $47,100 for the SV. The SL trim starts at $51,900, while the Platinum costs $60,530. The top Platinum Reserve Model costs $65,480. Each base price excludes a destination charge of $1,395 and you can add four-wheel-drive to any model at the cost of $3,000. Fully loaded, the most expensive Armada will cost you around $73,000. The Nissan Armada's price is relatively affordable in comparison to most rivals.
The base model has access to the Driver package for $1,100, adding a power-folding third row, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, fog lights, a power tailgate, and a tow hitch receiver. The SL has access to two packages, one of which simply adds captain's chairs and a second-row console for $450. The other is the Premium package, which gives you blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a power sunroof, and adaptive cruise control for $1,480. The Platinum model gets access to 22-inch wheels for $2,250 as well as the Platinum Reserve package which essentially adds the aforementioned wheels and the top trim's appearance enhancements, premium perforated leather, and interior trim. This costs $4,500, which takes the Platinum's price to $450 below that of the Platinum Reserve. However, you still have to pay $450 extra for the top model's captain's chairs. Yet, it begs the question of why the top trim exists at all.
Our pick out of all the Nissan Armada models is the all-but-fully-loaded Platinum trim. This model gets a sunroof, leather upholstery, adaptive cruise control, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated outboard rear seats. You also get a rear-seat entertainment system, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-keep assist. Thus, you have all available safety features and conveniences. We would, however, spend the extra 450 bucks on the second-row captain's chairs, thus making access to the third row easier and comfort in the second row better - all for less than $68,000 before delivery charges.
