As one of the manliest SUVs around, the new 2018 Nissan Armada is expected to do well in the market based on its looks alone. It also packs decent power and a long list of features. It’s a great package, the 2018 Armada, but it also costs a lot.
The starting price for a basic 2018 Nissan Armada is $45,600 USD, sans the $1,195 Destination and Handling charge. And that’s just the start. A fully-loaded version with more bells and whistles and 4WD can easily net 63 grand. While that might seem like a lot of money for a Nissan, there is some value to be found here, especially when you learn about the powertrain. It consists of a 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance V8 and 7-speed automatic transmission. Pick a model with 4WD and you’ll have an unstoppable off-roader.
As for the equipment, standard kit on 2018 Nissan Armada includes the NissanConnect 8″ infotainment. The device offers a wide range of connectivity features such as HD Radio, SiriusXM Travel Link, Enhanced Voice Recognition, Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, and additional USB ports. A first for the Armada, and indeed any Nissan, is the Intelligent Rear View Mirror (I-RVM). Standard on Platinum model, it’s a rear view mirror that doubles as a rear view camera for when your view is obstructed by people or cargo.
