“Armada offers best-in-class* maximum horsepower, a range of class-exclusive* available safety and security features, and an interior that you’d expect to find in a much more expensive vehicle,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc.

Popular Mechanics’ editors commend the SUV’s ability to be both family-friendly and outdoors-oriented, writing “For those who need three rows of seats and low-range 4-wheel drive, the new Armada does it best.” In addition to packing a new 380-horsepower, 5.6-liter V8 engine, the SUV is outfitted with seating for up to eight passengers. On top of that, the 16.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row and maximum tow capacity of 8,500 lbs. make the Armada a top choice for families on the go.

The magazine also praised the SUV’s cabin for its handsome design and countless conveniences. Standard, the Armada comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition and entry, heated front seats, built-in USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, a backup camera, navigation, an 8-inch touchscreen and a 13-speaker Bose audio system. Higher trims offer even more luxuries, from leather seating to a rear entertainment system.

Most importantly, the new Armada model is also available with the latest and greatest driver-assist technology, including blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, backup collision intervention and a 360-degree around view camera system.
