The Nissan Armada SUV is either a seven or eight passenger luxury family SUV that comes in three different trims. All of the trims come with a 5.6 liter 317 horsepower V8 motor and a five speed automatic transmission. Buyers will have the choice of rear or four wheel drive. The trims available are the entry level SV, the midrange SL and the top level Platinum.
Along with the powerful engine, the SV trim of the Nissan Armada SUV features a set of alloy wheels of 18 inches, side step rails to make entry and exit simpler and sensors for rear parking. Buyers will also receive a dual zone climate control system with a rear control, a power driver's seat, power adjustable pedals and tilt steering. The audio system features eight speakers and a six disc CD changer. Those who opt to add the Driver package will get foglight and a power liftgate in addition to an automatic dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth and a rearview camera. The stereo will be upgraded to an eleven speaker Bose system that features satellite radio and controls in the rear. The four wheel drive option will include this package as standard.

Buyers will receive a keyless ignition and entry system, leather upholstery and heated front seats. Finally, the third row seat will be power folding.
The Platinum trim upgrades the wheels again to a 20 inch chrome. This trim adds on a sunroof, front parking sensors, and dual power folding mirrors.
