Overall rating

6.9 / 10

The 2019 Nissan Armada competes well against other full-size SUVs in its class. Like the others, it has a strong engine that is well-suited for towing duties and enough four-wheel-drive capability to get you and your family off the beaten path with confidence.

We give the Armada high marks for its refined interior. The cabin is a comfortable space that benefits from elements shared with its upmarket Infiniti QX80 cousin. Points are also awarded for the Armada's generous cargo capacity and ride quality that is more agreeable than its truck-based underpinnings would suggest.

Unfortunately, the Armada's V8 is one of the least efficient among its SUV competitors. Additionally, the infotainment system is behind the times and the third row of seats isn't quite as spacious as some of its rivals. Those rivals include the Ford Expedition, Chevrolet Tahoe and related GMC Yukon, with our vote going to the newer Ford Expedition. Overall, however, the Armada has enough positive qualities to warrant consideration.

2019 Nissan Armada models

The 2019 Nissan Armada is a full-size SUV that seats eight passengers. Second-row captain's chairs are available on the SL and Platinum trims and reduce seating to seven. All Armada trims use a 5.6-liter V8 engine (390 horsepower, 394 pound-feet of torque) paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and four-wheel drive is optional. The Armada's trim levels start at the SV, move up to the midgrade SL, and finish with the nearly fully loaded Platinum.

The standard SV trim starts with 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, heated mirrors, roof rails, side steps, keyless ignition and entry, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, a tow hitch receiver, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats with heating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a reclining second-row bench split seat, and a 60/40-split third-row seat.

Tech features include Bluetooth, a navigation system, an 8-inch touchscreen display, and a 13-speaker Bose audio system with a CD player, satellite radio, HD radio, two USB media inputs, and two USB charge-only ports. Advanced safety features include adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and a new system that alerts you to check the rear seats for passengers.

The optional Driver package adds a power liftgate, foglights, a power-adjustable third-row seat, an auto-dimming mirror, a universal garage door opener and a trailering package.

The SL trim level includes the Driver package items plus 20-inch wheels, rain-sensing wipers, remote engine start, a power-adjustable steering wheel, driver-seat memory functions, leather upholstery, leather door trim, a 120-volt power outlet, and an enhanced 360-degree top-down parking camera with moving-object detection and warning.

The SL's optional Premium package adds a sunroof, forward and rearward emergency automatic braking, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. You can also get a Captain's Seat package that replaces the second-row bench seats with two bucket seats and a center console with a padded armrest.

The range-topping Platinum adds the SL's Premium package along with unique 20-inch wheels, rear step lighting, a windshield wiper de-icer, speed-sensitive steering (which requires less effort at low speeds), heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, a rear-seat entertainment system, an upgraded rearview mirror that can display a constant video feed from the rearview camera, and lane keeping assist with blind-spot intervention.

Exclusive to the Platinum trim is the Platinum Reserve package that adds special exterior trim and two-tone leather upholstery.

Overall6.9 / 10



The drive experience is a mixed bag. The V8 engine makes plenty of power and sounds fantastic, and the seven-speed transmission delivers that power smoothly and predictably. The brakes are suitably strong and bring the Armada to a smooth stop.

Alas, straight-line performance is all the Armada does well. The steering doesn't give you a good feel for how much you're turning; driver focus is required. The Armada leans and wallows in corners more than we'd like, too. While we don't expect a big SUV like this to be sporty, other rivals do a better job of conveying a sense of precision and handling stability.



The Armada's main claim to fame here is the utter quietness with which it goes about its business. It's hushed inside unless you floor the throttle. At this point, you hear the V8 roar to life, but it's a strong, high-quality V8 sound that's pleasant and impressive without being overbearing. Roll off the throttle and it fades back into the background.

But we're not nearly as enthusiastic about the seats. They look comfortable, but the lower cushions are overly hard and flat, which isn't what you want on a long road trip. The ride quality too is disappointing. The suspension tuning is overly soft, so the Armada pitches around a lot when you maneuver. It does a poor job of smoothing out big bumps too.



The Armada isn't as big on the inside as the outside suggests. The front seats offer decent room, but the back seats feel cramped in legroom and toe room if anyone tall is up front. It's especially bad because the second row does not slide. The third row is OK but realistically best suited for kids.

This Nissan is a tall SUV, and the side steps, generous door openings and grab handles come in handy for stepping in. Once inside, you'll find a high driving position that may not be as customizable as you might like. The controls are familiar but in a decade-old kind of way that could stand an update. Visibility, on the other hand, is mostly excellent thanks to the Armada's large windows.



Towing is where the Armada shines brightest thanks to a standard rear air suspension, pre-installed wiring, and a strong V8 that supports an 8,500-pound tow rating. The Armada also excels when it comes to in-cabin storage for personal items thanks to a generous glovebox, a big center console and abundant cupholders. It's easy to fit child safety seats in the second row, but the third row isn't set up nearly as well.

The Armada's main cargo hold prevents it from earning a higher score. The space is generous, but the load floor is high and the rear bumper gets in your way when you try to reach in to grab anything. Also, the load floor isn't completely flat because the second-row center armrest sticks up like an island when you fold the seats down.



The Armada is in serious need of an infotainment system transplant. The screen has coarse graphics, the controls and menus are hard to comprehend, and it's hard to sort through your music library. Good luck finding a specific podcast episode, for example. Map data isn't easily upgraded either. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is absent, which would fix many of these ills.

The news is much better when it comes to driver assistance features. Adaptive cruise and automatic emergency braking are standard on all models. And the Platinum also comes with standard lane keeping assistance, ProPilot Assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert with braking intervention, a 360-degree camera, and more.

Continues to be a Great SUV!
Matt B,07/28/2019
Platinum 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 7A)
This review is being updated for the 2019 Nissan Armada Platinum 4x4. We now have over 33k miles on it, including multiple family road trips, sporting event weekends with kids, and near daily city/suburban driving. Bottom line: our family of 6 is still very happy with our purchase! The 2019 Platinum Armada comes equipped with just about every bell and whistle that you could want. While the tech and layout are somewhat outdated compared to newer competitor models, the Armada continues to provide a comfortable ride with tons of safety features and it's actually fun to drive. While it may be somewhat outdated, the tech that the Armada offers is decent. The driver display and cabin layout are efficient and easy to learn. The maps and Navigation system are accurate and work well, but the system is cumbersome to input an address into. You can import locations/addresses via your smartphone, but this is still a chore and I never fully got the hang of it (or honestly cared to). That being said, it still is functional and works well. There is no Android Auto or Apple Car Play in the Armada, which as I previously said is weird because other Nissan models have it, but oh well. Our family has both Android and Apple and everybody can connect their phones to the system via Bluetooth or USB. There are 4 x accessible and usable USB ports: 2 x in the front and 2 x in the middle row, which work great. As I said in my previous review, we are coming from a Honda Odyssey minivan, which has the central TV screen. The Armada has the dual, built in TV screens in the back of the front seat headrests. The middle row USB can control their respective side TV screen to independently play/stream media, if desired. Or you can play DVD from the front console (only DVD, not BluRay). Additionally, we haven't had any issues or complaints with our kids viewing the TV screens from the back seats. Finally, the sound system is awesome. I'm not sure if this is from the Bose sound system, the sound dampening interior, or combination of both, but whether it's music, podcasts, or movies playing, the sound is great. The seats are very comfortable and there is more than enough passenger comfort space in the front and middle row captain chairs. The front seats are ventilated/heated and can be multipositioned. The middle seats are heated, can be reclined/inclined, and are still very plush, roomy, and comfortable. The 3rd row in the back is definitely not the same. I'm 6'2" and can fit back there, but I wouldn't want to go more than an hour riding in the back. Our family of 6 with 2 x dogs can still take road trips (see luggage/cargo concern below). I still like all of the safety/driver aids. The adaptive cruise control holds speed and standoff distance like a champ. The collision warning/self breaking can be harsh, so check your settings, but it works well. The lane keeping assist can be overbearing at times, but it's easy to disable if you don't like it. I only enable it on long road trips and it's nice once you learn the nuances. The blind spot warning and intervention works well and the cameras offer true dimensions and great lines of sight. We have found the Armada to be very responsive and it handles much better than you would expect from a big SUV. It turns sharply, handles well and thanks to the V8, you most certainly can get up and go if needed. City and highway driving are nice thanks to the high ride with excellent lines of sight. The only blind spots I have issues with are the right front and rear bumper regions - and thanks to the bird's eye view, safety cameras, large mirrors, and warning systems, this really isn't an issue. It offers a smooth, level ride despite any turns or potholes encountered. We haven't really needed the 4WD, but on the 2 x occasions we used it, it performed well and we didn't get stuck in mud. We haven't really been in icy/snowy conditions much, but so far, the Armada has handled well in all environments. My only concerns continue to be the relative poor fuel economy and lack of luggage space with all 3 rows in use. With respect to the fuel economy, it's a 3 ton SUV with a large V8, so expect it to be bad. We're still averaging 14 mpg mixed with city and highway driving. We have found that true city stop and go driving gets in the 10-12 mpg range and highway driving gets in the 16-20 mpg range. With the middle row Captain's Chairs installed, there is actually a fair amount of internal storage space in the cabin, so the personal space is awesome, but the back luggage area will barely fit 2 full size suit cases unless the 3rd row seats are straight 90 degrees. We ended up getting a trailer tow hitch with a cargo bag to overcome this. It's a hassle, but well worth it (side note - minimal, if any, effect on gas mileage). Final note, we towed a small travel trailer (~4000 lbs) and the Armada handled it as though it wasn't there, with the exception of the trash fuel economy (we averaged 8-9 mpg while towing).

Armada save 10K OVER the others
Big Ed,07/20/2019
SL 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 7A)
My first impression when looking to buy a new large SUV was that the Nissan gave me more for less. Have experience in R&D for a key supplier for the automotive manufacturers, I also know there is no free lunch. GM interiors stink in part on the quality of the plastics they specify. The gaps, finishes wearing off items, it is all related. Ford is better/tighter in its specs and the Japanese, esp. Toyota are the best. Nissan uses a number of parts from the Infinity version and you have those high quality bits. In short, the vehicle is well built, I have had no problems in 15K miles, tows well up to 5000lbs, above that a pickup is better, but it will still do it. Note I find the drivers seat not as comfortable for those over 6'1" and the third row is for kids. It also has excellent back seat leg room. As far as the price, I can only come up with that Nissan has lower margins on this vehicle than GM or Ford does of theirs. Update at 36,000 miles and almost 3 yrs of ownership. I have become generally more pleased with the vehicle as time has gone on. So far just general maintenance and no repairs. Tires wear well when rotated and it appears I will get in the low 40k range on the tires. Passengers generally comment on how comfortable and spacious the rear seats are. Towing is good and the load leveling aspect helps level the truck. I would still like more driver seat adjustment. My daughter who does not like driving larger vehicles got used to this truck on a long highway drive. I do much of my own maintenance and I am always impressed with the heft of the chassis and "running gear" underneath this truck. UPDATE: 48,000 miles and no issues. I did change the front and rear differential fluids; the rear was darker than the front. Gas mileage remains about 18 combined. I have noted that the a/c temperature setting and what it delivers is sensitive to the cabin filter being clean. Now change filter 2X year. Do basic maintenance and it runs and runs.

Platinum 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 7A)
We bought our 2019 Armada Platinum about a month ago. This is our 2nd Armada. We’ve racked up about 800 miles so far and it’s everything we hoped it would be. Comfortable, quiet ride. Very roomy. Kids love the captains chairs in the back as well as the DVD player. I keep hearing folks talk about the gas mileage, what do you expect when you buy a beast. You can’t have everything. Go buy a Prius and sit on top of each other. We are very pleased with our purchase.

Great riding vehicle
SV 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 7A)
I have rented Armada's many times and always enjoyed driving them. So much so, that i finally bought one. I cannot think of a car that rides better than this vehicle, and my other car is a Lexus, and i will drive this one any day over that vehicle. Smooth, quiet, and powerful.


Our experts like the Armada models:

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. It's standard on SL and Platinum.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Nissan Armada?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
