top-of-the-line Platinum edition, which comes with virtually every feature you night want

With only minor trim changes for the 2013 model year, the Nissan Armada breaks no new ground in entertainment, infotainment, or luxury features in its seven-passenger cabin. To its credit, it doesn't come in a bare-bones version, like some domestic-brand SUVs that pitch their wares to fleets and utilities.

The Armada comes in a choice of three models, and any of them can be optioned up from rear-wheel to four-wheel drive. The base version, the SV, offers power windows, locks and mirrors; dual-zone climate control; an AM/FM/CD player with USB port; power front seats; Bluetooth keyless entry; a flip/fold third-row seat; and rear parking sensors. The Armada SL picks up some more comprehensive feature content, including Bose audio; an auto-leveling rear suspension; a rearview camera; leather seating; and a power-folding third-row seat.

The Platinum edition, at the top of the range, gets a full bundle of luxury add-ons including a power tailgate; heated first- and second-row seating; a heated steering wheel; a sunroof; a navigation system with real-time traffic; and a DVD entertainment system for the rear two rows of passengers. 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. A special Reserve edition for the 2013 model year wears 20-inch dark chrome wheels and matching exterior trim, with two-tone leather seating.

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.


With few cutting-edge options, the Armada's features list doesn't go overboard with electronics.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
