Safety

Our experts’ favorite Armada safety features:

Blind-Spot Monitoring

The Armada's size and width make for reduced side and rear visibility. This feature helps compensate. Standard on Platinum, optional on SL.
Automatic Emergency Braking

Front radar monitors proximity to the vehicle ahead. In an imminent collision, the Armada can apply the brakes to avoid or mitigate impact.
Around-View Monitor

Four cameras display a 360-degree bird's-eye image of the car. Selectable curbside view works great for parking. Standard on SL, Platinum.

Wolf Wrapped in a Sheep Cloke
This is a nice looking vehicle, however, I will state that I preferred a GMC or Chevrolet but my wife preferred the look of the Armada. ELECTRONICS: Currently, we only have 6,000 miles on it since purchase and the entire electronic system is having to be replaced. All the safety sensors stopped working for lane departure, forward collision warning, etc. The dealership states that this is what is causing the very poor display of the camera system as the backup camera display is that of a very cheap security system camera that is essentially useless. It is noted that the electronic system is a 1980's model that i assume they selected to keep the price down from that of the equivalent GMC or Chevrolet compatibles. EXTERIOR: For the most part the exterior of the vehicle has a nice look. That is until you start to drive it. In another attempt to apparently shave cost off the vehicle Nissan has thinned the sheet metal for the body panels that flimsy. In fact that the hood is so thin that as you drive down the interstate the hood will flex and bend in the wind. I assume it is only a matter of time the dents will start to show up on the doors and quarter panels due to this thin material as it will definitely not be able to withstand any type of impact. INTERIOR: Overall with the exception of the poorly chosen drivers display mentioned above the interior does have a nice look and the leather covering of the seats are adequate. That is until you sit on them. The front and rear captions chairs feel like you are sitting on aluminum bleachers. The seats are very flat, hard, and not form fitting in any manner. The best option you have for adjustment are the lumbar support, or incline/decline. OVERALL CONCLUSION: At first appearance this is a nice looking vehicle. However, in this case beauty truly is only skin deep. Nissan has taken the infinity look and stripped everything down from that point to make the vehicle as cheap as possible and it show once you have spent some time in it. If you are looking to purchase one of these vehicles I recommend that you spend more time in it than just a quick test drive around the block.
Dissapointed
Handling is poor, is like driving a school bus. Seats are flat and hard, they don't wrap around your bottom or back. Instrument panel is behind the times as it is not digital and in color, something most models have at this price level, e.g. Tahoe, Pilot, Atlas. Sound system is below average. I am really unhappy and will probably trade it in within 1 year.
I love this vehicle!
I/we have owned several nice SUV's including a '12 Ford Expedition, '14 Cadillac Escalade, '14 M-B ML550, '15 Explorer Sport as well as a Limited (also a '15) We trade cars frequently obviously and this is a tie for me with the ML550 (which by the way, used MORE gas and only 93 octane.) I love the power the Armada has and I really love the look of the interior. I was shopping the '18 Expedition and '18 Tahoe LTZ (What a boring interior for those dollars!) I previously owned a 2011 Tahoe and didn't care for it but was considering it anyway. What really sold me on the Armada is the torque and horsepower along with the outside restyling and posh looking interior. The 0-60 time on this vehicle is faster than most cars! It makes me feel as if the people who purchased the Infinity for 10K more kind of over-paid since it is essentially the same vehicle with a few more tech and luxury changes that I can live without. Additionally, it drives like it is smaller than it is. I have only had mine for 3 weeks and haven't had any problems. I am just over the initial break-in period (per the manual) of 1200 miles and I am averaging 16.3 mpg. Believe me, I am not a slow driver but by the same token I am not stomping the gas to leave every stop light; but I want to! The sound it makes! Sigh. Nissan makes a lot of these vehicles and like all makes, there are going to be "lemons" produced and someone is going to get them. As far as I'm concerned though, overall the Armada is a fantastic buy for a large SUV.

Crossovers might rule the SUV school, but a market still thrives for old-school full-size SUVs such as the 2018 Nissan Armada. The Armada is a comfortable and surprisingly luxurious alternative for those who need an SUV that can tow trailers and toys or claw its way over rough terrain en route to outdoor adventure.

The 2018 Armada is fresh off a full second-generation redesign from the year before. The first-gen Armada was built off the bones of Nissan's full-size Titan pickup, but the second-gen model is a new breed. Like its posh sibling, the Infiniti QX80, the Armada is based on the Nissan Patrol, an accomplished off-road SUV that has sold in markets outside of the United States for many years. Built with body-on-frame construction for maximum ruggedness, the Armada features seating for up to eight and a powerful V8 engine.

Changes are minor for the 2018 model and include NissanConnect telematics services (emergency/accident notification, remote access features, etc.), HD Radio, hands-free text messaging and additional USB charging ports as standard features. There's also a new Platinum Reserve package, which adds dark chrome exterior trim features to Platinum models.

In terms of its engine, the Armada speaks softly but carries a big stick — a brawny 5.6-liter V8 that produces 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque, which can be paired with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with a low-range transfer case. The Armada can tow up to 8,500 pounds, more than most small pickup trucks, but the engine is thirsty: The EPA estimates you'll get 15 mpg combined with four-wheel drive.

Surprisingly, the interior differences between the Nissan Armada and the Infiniti QX80 are just about negligible — and make no mistake, the ambiance and materials quality are all to Infiniti standards. We did miss the Infiniti's seats, which offer a greater degree of adjustability. First- and second-row comfort are fine, but the third-row seat and the cargo bay don't offer as much room as some of the Armada's full-size competitors.

The driving experience is just as refined as the interior decor. We expect some element of engine roar and wind noise in a road-going brick like this, but the Armada is respectably quiet. And though it definitely feels more cumbersome and trucklike than a large crossover, the Armada's ride is free of the bouncing and shimmying over bumps we've come to expect from full-size body-on-frame vehicles.

The Armada is available as a seven- or eight-seat SUV in SV, SL and Platinum trim levels. The SV comes very nicely equipped, with the SL adding features we expect from entry-level luxury vehicles and the Platinum narrowing the gap between the Armada and its Infiniti counterpart even further. What's the best way to equip this big SUV? Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2018 Nissan Armada for you.
