The large family SUV is back this year and better than ever. With upgraded luxury at the upper trim levels and improved engine and suspension, the new Nissan Armada is drawing in both new and veteran buyers to the Nissan line. Whether you are looking for a vehicle to take your family on road trips or just looking for one that has the performance, safety, and cargo space to help you tackle all of your daily activities, you can find what you are looking for with the 2019 Nissan Armada.
This year the Armada's dressed-up exterior excludes luxury, and its exterior size gives you a hint of the cargo and passenger space you can expect in the interior. The exterior grille is set off by two V-shaped bars, and a rounder rear with clear lens tail lights gives it an upgraded and lush look. The exterior provides buyers with a peek into the upscale features in the interior including leather and chrome features throughout, a curvy dashboard, tall riding position for passengers, and enough buttons and controls to provide you with the convenience you need to control everything in your vehicle.
You can count on the Armada to give you a smooth and powerful ride no matter the passenger or cargo load. All trims come standard with a large 5.6-liter, V-8 engine which produces an impressive 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. The large engine combined with a double-wishbone front and rear suspension helps ensure a smooth ride and provides you with the capability to haul up to 8,500 pounds when equipped for towing. A 7-speed automatic transmission provides the vehicle with a smoother shift, and the wide wheel track help the Armada to easily navigate corners and trail along more narrow pathways.
The Nissan Armada was designed to carry a large number of passengers and the interior allows that with comfort. Both the first and second rows are extremely spacious to accommodate any size drivers or passengers. Front seats are elevated to provide for a better view of the road, and the rear seats are available with a split bench of two captains chairs. Second-row seats recline, and buyers can choose to heat them when opting for the Platinum level. With the third-row seats in place, you will have an ample 16.5 cubic feet of cargo room. With the third-row down, you can expect to jump to 50 cubic feet and 95 cubic feet with both rows down.
With standard automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and rear seat reminder on all available trims, Nissan is stepping up to bring drivers a safer vehicle. You can also expect all trims to come standard with six airbags, a rearview camera, and traction control to help power you through more difficult road conditions. Those choosing to upgrade to the Platinum and Platinum reserve trim can also enjoy more active safety features including a camera-based rearview mirror, active lane control, parking sensors, and available blind spot monitors.
Other features that come standard, or as available options, include the Nissan infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen to allow you to keep connected with your phone, music, and contacts, and navigation. Upgrade options include 20-inch wheels, two-tone leather upholstery, heated steering wheel, power lift-gate, and a premium audio system from Bose.
For those looking for a vehicle that can seat up to eight, has the power and performance to take them anywhere they want to go, and the comfort and convenience seats to get them there in style, the new 2019 Nissan Armada certainly fits the bill.
