2011 Nissan Armada Features

8.0
Features
Nomenclature changes just a bit for 2011. Just as Nissan has done this year with most of its lineup, it's added a new mid-level SV model to replace the previous SE trim, and a new Armada SL replaces the Titanium level—leaving three trims, SV, SL, and Platinum, each offered with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

Unlike the full-size SUVs from GM and Ford, the Armada has a pretty simple lineup and a limited list of options. Automatic dual-zone air conditioning, a 60/40 split fold-flat third-row seat, keyless entry, rear parking sensors, and the ability to play MP3-formatted CDs are all standard features on the Armada SV, and over the previous SE it adds an overhead console, power-adjustable pedals, and other extras. SL models add Bluetooth hands-free, a Bose premium audio system, a rear-view monitor, leather upholstery, an auto-leveling rear suspension, and a power-folding third-row seat. And at the top of the line, the Platinum gets heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a moonroos, power rear liftgate, DVD entertainment, and a nav system with real-time traffic capability and hard-drive space for music storage.

Second-row captain's chairs are a standalone option; otherwise, a tow package will be a must-have for some as it taps into the full 9,100-pound capacity and brings a brake controller and 7-pin harness.

The 2011 Nissan Armada has a strong set of standard features, but with simplified builds it doesn't allow the vast combinations of options and equipment that you can find from Chevy or Ford.
