top-of-the-line Platinum edition, which comes with virtually every feature you night want
Nissan offers the Armada in three trim levels, all in a choice of rear- or four-wheel drive. The SV, SL, and Platinum have the right standard features for the class, but unlike some of the domestic-brand competition, the Armada doesn't have as many options, and the ones it has aren't quite as advanced.
All versions of the Armada are fitted with standard power windows, locks and mirrors; keyless entry; dual-zone climate control; a flip-fold third-row seat; rear parking sensors; and an AM/FM/CD player. The Armada SL adds on Bluetooth; Bose audio; leather upholstery; an auto-leveling rear suspension; a power-folding third-row seat; and a rearview camera. Platinum models adds on luxury touches like a navigation system with real-time traffic data; a power tailgate; heated front and second-row seats and a heated steering wheel; a DVD entertainment system; and a moonroof. While it's plushly outfitted in Platinum trim, the Armada doesn't have the voice-activated features of Ford's big Expedition or Explorer, or HD radio.
Armada buyers can switch out the second-row bench seat for a pair of bucket seats. There's also a towing package to take advantage of its 9,100-pound towing capacity; the package adds a brake controller and 7-pin harness.
The Nissan Armada suits up with the right standard features, but the options list is thin.
