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.
