What's New For 2018

After a full redesign last year, the Armada returns for 2018 with relatively minor changes. NissanConnect is now standard across all model grades, as is a new USB charging port. A Platinum Reserve model is also new for 2018, which includes dark chrome exterior trim, a premium wood trimmed interior and 20-inch wheels.

Warranty

  • Basic Warranty: 3 Years / 36,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Introduction

Nissan Armada, redesigned for 2017, is a full-size, family-focused three-row SUV that offers plenty of interior space. Upper models are near-luxury SUVs.

A new top-end Platinum Reserve trim level joins the eight-passenger flagship SUV’s lineup for the 2018 model year. Otherwise, changes are modest. NissanConnect services are newly standard, along with an 8-inch touchscreen, HD radio, and SiriusXM Travel Link. 2018 Armada Platinum Reserve trim includes an intelligent rearview mirror that displays a video view of the road behind.

Four trim levels are offered: SV, SL, Platinum, and new Platinum Reserve. Each is powered by a 5.6-liter V8 that generates 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque, driving a 7-speed automatic transmission. Offered with either rear- or four-wheel drive, Armadas feature standard separate body/frame construction.

When properly equipped, an Armada is rated to tow up to 8,500 pounds.

A spacious interior promises comfort that suggests a luxury brand, with an upscale feel both inside and out. Every Armada is well-equipped, but SV trim stands out for high value, priced well below such rivals as the Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition.

High-tech safety features as automatic emergency braking are either standard or optional for all but the SV trim level. Armada Platinum comes with blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, and active lane control, all optional on Armada SL.

A rearview camera comes standard, but new Platinum Reserve trim includes a camera at the rear that can send live video to an LCD display built into the outside mirror. This real-time rearview mirror presents an unimpeded view, eliminating visual obstructions caused by roof pillars, headrests, or passenger heads. On all Armadas, six airbags include curtain-type units that extend to the third row.

An optional Driver Package for SV trim includes foglamps, a power-folding third row, and power liftgate. The SL Premium Package brings a power moonroof, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. Nissan’s infotainment system features a large screen, but its basic design is outmoded.

Lineup

Armada SV ($46,090) has rear-wheel drive and includes eight-passenger seating, a rearview camera, power front seats, cloth upholstery, LED headlights, front/rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8.0-inch screen with navigation, and 18-inch wheels. (Prices are MSRP and do not include $1,295 destination charge.) Armada SV 4×4 ($48,990) includes all-wheel drive.

Armada SL ($50,850) adds leather upholstery, foglamps, a surround-view monitor, power liftgate, power-folding third-row seats, driver-seat memory, 20-inch wheels, and a power-adjustable steering column. Armada SL 4×4 ($53,750) comes with all-wheel drive.

Armada Platinum ($59,190) and Platinum 4×4 ($62,090) include Premium Package equipment plus active lane control, a video-based rearview mirror, and cooled front seats. Second-row captain’s chairs are optional, for seven-passenger capacity.

Platinum Reserve ($62,190) and Platinum Reserve 4×4 ($65,090) feature special dark chrome exterior trim and 20-inch wheels, two-tone leather-appointed seats, and premium woodtone trim.

Walkaround

Few people would call the big, bulbous Armada pretty. More often, they’d be likely to take notice of its inevitably voluptuous, but awkward, exterior shape. Essentially, Nissan’s Armada looks much like the related Infiniti QX80, but decorated by a little less chrome and equipped with contrasting-color fender flares.

Rather than simply dive into the traditional two-box SUV profile, Nissan went for curves. To some eyes, they may have gone too far in that direction. At the rear, clear taillights and a protruding back bumper help differentiate the Armada from the related Infiniti QX80.

Interior

Just about as curvaceous within the cabin as outside, the Armada promises abundant space in both the first and second rows. Front seats are abundantly padded for long-distance comfort, offering a broad range of adjustments.

The third row isn’t quite so welcoming, thus best for youngsters. Though fairly spacious once there, reaching the third row is somewhat challenging.

Eight-passenger seating is standard, with a three-position bench in the second row. Individual captain’s chairs are available for Platinum versions, reducing passenger capacity to seven.

Even in the base SV edition, with its cloth upholstery, the interior is sufficiently upscale and attractive. Wood trim is simulated, but convincing, complementing soft-touch surfaces.

New Platinum Reserve trim substitutes two-tone leather that’s almost tacky in nature, though the darker chrome on the body is an improvement. All told, the new version comes across as more gaudy than suave.

Although the curved dashboard seems to steal some passenger space, front occupants can expect ample stretch-out room. Numerous controls could be confusing at first.

Cargo space excels, with 16.5 cubic feet behind the third row. Folding that row expands volume close to 50 cubic feet. With two rows folded, an Armada can hold 95.4 cubic feet of luggage and cargo.

Driving Impressions

Approaching 6,000 pounds, especially with four-wheel drive, the Armada is indisputably a heavyweight. Though it copes well enough through curvy stretches, and the body leans during quick corners, an Armada never feels unsafe.

Next to carlike crossover models, handling can only be called cumbersome and sluggish. Although the leather-wrapped steering wheel feels good, Armadas, not surprisingly, are short on road feel.

Ride comfort exceeds expectations for a massive body-on-frame vehicle, thanks to its fully independent coil-spring suspension. The SV base model with 18-inch tires yields the most satisfying luxury-level ride. Upper trim levels with 20-inch tires ride a tad firmer, but the difference isn’t bothersome.

Nissan’s big, strong V8 yields energetic acceleration, augmented by confident towing prowess, but an Armada inevitably guzzles gasoline. Considering its weight, acceleration to 60 mph in less than seven seconds is mighty quick. Smooth-running at idle speed, the V8 emits a subdued growl as it gets rolling.

Four-wheel drive is optional for all versions, permitting off-road treks. Naturally, the excessive dimensions of Nissan’s flagship make it usable mainly on wide trails.

It takes some fuel to power an Armada. Rear-wheel-drive models are EPA-rated at only 14/19 mpg City/Highway, or 16 mpg Combined. Four-wheel drive sinks those estimates to 13/18/15 mpg. At least, it runs on Regular-grade gasoline.

Summary

Providing fairly good value despite hefty prices, the Armada comes across as a luxury SUV. Not only will it hold a large family in comfort, it can tow a camper or boat with ease. Demerits include an unbridled appetite for fuel and a largely unrewarding driving experience.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
