Overview

The Nissan Armada is a truck-based full-size SUV, the flagship of the Nissan fleet as befits its name. It boasts power, spaciousness, and high towing capacity, and can accommodate up to 8 people in three rows of seating. It's available in rear- or 4-wheel drive (2WD or 4WD). The 2011 model carries over from the previous year, although the trims have been re-named.

The entry-level 2011 Nissan Armada SV trim features 18-inch wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, a full range of power accessories including driver's seat, 8-speaker sound system, and side-step rails. A tow package is optional. One step up is the Armada SL edition, which adds the tow package, keyless entry and ignition, fog lights, leather upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, 11-speaker Bose sound system, and auto-leveling rear air suspension. The top-of-the-line Armada Platinum adds 20-inch chrome wheels, power liftgate, sunroof, hard-drive-based navigation system, rear-seat entertainment system, premium Bose sound system, and much more. Second-row captain's chairs are available as an alternative to bench seating with the Platinum trim, and power-folding third-row seats are available. Properly equipped, the Armada can tow up to 9100 pounds, according to the manufacturer.

The 2011 Nissan Armada's powertrain consists of a 317-horsepower, 5.6-liter V-8 engine that produces 385 lb.-ft. of torque, and a 5-speed automatic transmission. It delivers 13 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Nissan Armada include anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, active front head restraints, front side air bags, overhead air bags, seat belt pre-tensioners, and rear parking assist. A security system detects intruders, and the ignition can be disabled for any but the original manufacturer's key. A rearview camera and front parking sensors are standard or optional, depending on trim level.

Starting MSRP for the 2011 Nissan Armada is $38,490.
