2018 Nissan Armada

Introducing the 2018 Nissan Armada

Command the road with the 2018 Nissan Armada. Straddling the line between rugged utility and classy sophistication, the Armada proves to be capable on all fronts. 

Exterior Styling

Sitting high and wide, the Armada embodies a prominent stature. The Nissan V-motion grill is distinctly displayed at the front of the vehicle. Flanking either side of the grill, you find the standard LED headlights, which are accented by signature LED daytime running lights.  Chrome side mirrors, door handles, and fender vents all add flair. To finish off the looks, 20-inch machine finished wheels are also available. 

Distinctive Interior

As you climb inside the Armada, you may mistake it for a more expensive luxury vehicle. Soft-touch materials are affluent throughout the well-crafted interior, and beautiful wood, leather, and chrome accents are prevalent. With three rows of seating, there is room for up to eight. The large cabin provides ample head and leg room for everyone to stretch out. The seats are plush and easy to settle into for a long trip. It is easy to find just the right position in the standard heated front seats with a 10-way power driver and 8-way front passenger seats. Climate-controlled front and heated second-row seats are also available. SL and Premium trim Armadas feature high-end leather-appointed seats with double stitching and piping. You can also choose a bench seat or add available captain's chairs with a removable center console for even more personal comfort on Premium and Premium Reserve trims.

The captivatingly sculpted dash and center console offers simple intuitive controls that are easily adjusted while driving. A large 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system takes center stage on the dash. It features GPS navigation, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, and seamless integration with Bluetooth devices, thanks to Nissan Connect, which allows you to stream music and make hands-free calls.  Intuitive multi-touch controls allow you to easily navigate through infotainment screens and options. With standard steering wheel controls, you can use the infotainment system, Bluetooth calls, and cruise control without taking your hands off the wheel. Music is enhanced with the standard 13-speaker Bose Premium audio system for lifelike sound. For rear passengers, there is an available Tri-Zone Entertainment System with dual 8-inch rear monitors built into the headrests, which can play independently from different sources, such as DVDs, video games, photos, and more.

With such a vast interior and many different seating configurations, the Armada can easily adapt to your needs. The second and third-row seats can split 60/40 or fold down completely, yielding a cavernous cargo area. Loading cargo is made easier with an available power lift-gate and a power folding third-row with the touch of a button. 

From The Driver's Seat

For such a large vehicle the Armada is remarkably easy to drive. It's tall stance and large mirrors provide great sight lines all around. Ride quality is stable, as its suspension absorbs bumps with ease, and makes the large Armada feel light on its feet while cornering. Power is plentiful, thanks to the Armada's Endurance 5.6-liter V8 engine that produces an impressive, best-in-class 390 horsepower and 394 ft-lb of torque. The powerful engine provides swift acceleration. A seven-speed automatic transmission with a tow/haul mode implements smooth power delivery. The Armada even offers best-in-class standard maximum towing of up to 8,500 pounds, so you can bring a boat, camper, or other toys with you on your journey. Wherever that journey takes you, the Armada is prepared to handle it with the optional four-wheel-drive system. The 4WD system automatically switches between 2WD and 4WD depending on the conditions. For greater traction on rocky snowy and muddy roads, the Armada can be switched to 4H; and for ultimate torque on rocky and steep grades, 4L can be selected.


Nissan has engineered the Armada to keep you and your passengers safe. Not only has it been designed and equipped with many safety features to achieve top safety ratings from NHTSA and IIHS, they have also made available the latest in technology to help prevent an accident in the first place. Some of these advanced safety features include:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Emergency Braking - Monitors your speed and senses the proximity to the vehicle ahead of you, as well as the vehicle ahead of them. A warning is provided if you need to slow down and it can also apply braking if you fail to respond. The system will also apply the brakes if a collision is unavoidable, helping to reduce the impact.
  • Intelligent Cruise Control - Automatically keeps a set distance between you and the car ahead.
  • Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention - Detect the presence of vehicles to the side of the vehicle using radar. If another vehicle is detected while you are trying to merge, you will receive a warning and the system can apply the brakes and guide you back into your lane.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor - Sensors detect vehicles approaching from either side when you are backing up and provides a warning. 
  • Intelligent Around View Monitor - Provides you with an on-screen alert when moving objects are detected around your vehicle.
