In case you’re reminiscent for the era of SUV overload, the Armada is a throwback to a past era of supersizing.

The Armada continues without any changes.

Choosing Your Nissan Armada

All Armada models are powered by 5.6-liter V8 that sends 317 horsepower to the rear wheels—or all four—through a five-speed automatic transmission. Don't expect anything approaching fuel efficiency. The Armada is rated at 13 miles per gallon in city driving conditions and 19 miles per gallon on the highway.

There is seating for eight across the range, and this ultimate party-mobile provides up to 14 cup holders.

Armada SV

The base SV has a starting price in the upper 30s, making it competitive with a variety of mid- and full-size SUVs. The list of standard features isn't lavish, but includes Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control and 19-inch wheels. All models include chrome front door handles, a 12-volt power outlet, side step rails, halogen headlights, manual flip out rear quarter windows, rear proximity sensors, and privacy glass.

Armada SL

Stepping up to the SL adds around $5,000 to the MSRP, and yields heated leather seats, 20-inch aluminum wheels, a rearview camera, wood grain interior trim, a chrome grille, fog lights, chrome roof rack with crossbars, and a power liftgate. A power moonroof is optional.

Armada Platinum

The top-of-the-line Platinum costs $7,000 more than the SL, and is loaded with standard features like navigation, an entertainment system with dual 7-inch monitors, 20-inch chrome wheels and a moonroof. Options include a heated steering wheel and second-row seats. You can opt for captain's chairs in the second row, though this drops passenger capacity to seven. For the fashion-conscious, a Platinum Reserve package adds a bevy of dark chrome accents to the interior, wheels, grille, outside mirror, wheel caps and tail pipe.

CarsDirect Tip

For large, active families who place a priority on space and utility, an SV or SL should be a ideal partner for recreation and day-to-day life. Before spending $50,000 or more on a Platinum, though, check out the similar Infiniti QX80.
