Inside the look isn't nearly as aggressive-looking—it's actually now one of the more softly-contoured designs in this competitive set—and while it's one of the more dated designs among full-size trucks it still feels well-laid out and straightforward. Smaller controls and more delicate buttons in general, though, project that it takes aim at suburban types more than the work-gloved crowd.
Almost nothing about the design of the 2011 Nissan Armada is subtle. It looks macho and imposing from nearly all angles on the outside, and the flared wheel wells are still among the largest and most exaggerated among full-size trucks. The roofline, with a slight upward curve to the point that it meets a wider pillar at the rear door (with the rear-door latch up high) is, besides creating a stylish silhouette, a nod to the former Pathfinder, and the very upright profile front and back projects a serious impression.
