2018 Nissan Armada Price and Review | Bessemer, AL

2018 Nissan Armada

Serving Bessemer, AL, Tuscaloosa, and Hueytown

Bridging the gap between the SUV and pickup truck bodystyles, the Nissan Armada has been a top choice for drivers who especially want cavernous interiors, rugged manufacture, and heightened off-road capability. The Armada is still fresh in its second generation of production with the 2018 model, which gets the addition of the Platinum Reserve as the new top-level trim. It joins the other three, which are the SV, SL, and Platinum, and what makes it stand apart from the regular Platinum trim are a few exclusive cosmetic touches: "Platinum Reserve" badging, open-pore wood trim, dark chrome exterior trim, two-tone leather-appointed seats with contrast stitches, and 20-inch dark chrome-clad aluminum wheels.

Review Video


Powering the 2018 Nissan Armada is a huge, 5.6-liter V8 that churns out 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. Paired with the engine is a 7-speed automatic transmission, which comes with manual shift mode for greater control over gear shifting, as well as synchronized downshift rev matching for smoother shifting and handling. Regarding the drivetrain, you have the choice between a rear-wheel drive system for better front-to-back weight distribution (since the engine is placed at the front) and a four-wheel drive system for enhancing overall vehicle stability.


With a peak interior passenger volume of 171.1 cubic feet, the 2018 Nissan Armada has three rows of seats to accommodate up to eight people. With the Platinum models, however, you can replace the second-row bench-style seat with two captain's chairs to reduce maximum capacity to seven. At the base level, front seating consists of a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat and an 8-way power-adjustable passenger seat: each with 2-way power lumbar support and heating capability. The SL has the addition of a memory system to set and store driver seat positioning, and the cloth seat covering is replaced by leather trim. Front- and second-row and steering-wheel heating capability, as well as front-seat cooling capability, are exclusive to the Platinum.

At the base level, the 2018 Nissan Armada comes with a host of comfort, convenience, and infotainment features. They include 8-inch color touchscreen navigation, NissanConnect for infotainment integration, a three-month SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, a smart key system with push-button engine start, Bluetooth connectivity, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and a 13-speaker Bose stereo system with HD Radio. Additions and enhancements on the SL include remote vehicle start, HomeLink for remote-controlling garage doors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a 360-degree camera. Exclusive to the Platinum models are smart cruise and distance control systems, as well as a tri-zone entertainment system that includes dual 8-inch monitors, a DVD player with remote control, two wireless headphones, and an HDMI input.


The 2018 Nissan Armada is equipped with dual front impact airbags, two front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and dual three-row side curtains. Also standard are electronic stability control, traction control, hill start assist, and four-wheel anti-lock disc braking with braking assist and electronic brakeforce distribution. On four-wheel-drive units, the Armada gets the addition of a G-sensor to detect changes in proper acceleration. And if you go with the Platinum, Nissan adds lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, lane intervention, forward collision warning, and blind spot warning and intervention.
