Drivers in East Providence, Cranston and Pawtucket can find out what’s available for the 2018 Nissan Armada with our vehicle review.
Unlike many large SUVs, the Nissan Armada doesn’t try to hide its size with obnoxious styling cues that detract from its functionality. Plenty of voluptuous curves enhanced by chrome touches keep it looking modern and attractive, while the overall shape is designed to provide as much interior space as possible.
Inside, the Nissan Armada uses a curved dashboard to amplify the front-passenger space, and the instruments and controls are laid out to promote usability and convenience. There are plenty of interior upgrade options, such as leather upholstery and a two-tone color palette, as well as an abundance of entertainment features.
All Nissan Armada models use a 5.6-liter V-8 that produces 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque. Power transfers to either the rear wheels or all four wheels through a slick seven-speed automatic transmission.
A fully independent suspension ensures that the Nissan Armada has a smooth, comfortable ride and agile handling, and the powerful engine gives it stunningly quick acceleration, regardless of the weight on board. It can also tow up to 8,500 pounds, and with the optional four-wheel drive, it can handle slippery road conditions or light off-roading.
Comfort and Space
The Nissan Armada uses high-quality cloth upholstery, soft-touch surfaces and wood accents to provide a plush, pleasant atmosphere within its cabin. The front seats have a range of adjustability and enough bolstering to be a dream for a long drive, and the second- and third rows maintain a similar level of comfort and luxury. Head- and legroom are excellent throughout as well, even in the third row, which is typically a shortcoming in a three-row SUV of any size.
This passenger space doesn’t come at the cost of cargo capacity, however. Behind the third row, the Nissan Armada has 16.5 cubic feet of space, which expands to almost 50 cubic feet once rear seats are folded. With both rows flat, the cargo bay accommodates an impressive 95.4 cubic feet. Loading cargo is easy and convenient too, thanks to the available power-folding third row, power liftgate and low liftover height.
