Outside, the Armada doesn't do much to disguise it's traditional two-box SUV shape, and this isn't necessarily a bad thing. There are no overwrought character lines or overtly-aggressive fascias, and there are few tacky details to muddle the overall cohesiveness of the design (though we're not huge fans of the prominent fake front-fender vents). The top-line Platinum Reserve boasts specific dark-chrome grill, mirrors, and door handles to distinguish itself as the alpha-Armada.
The cabin is just as innocuous as the exterior, but is decked out with quality materials and modern amenities that make it a luxurious place to spend quality time in over long distances. Notable standard features throughout the Armada lineup include an eight-inch touchscreen with navigation, SiriusXM radio, dual-zone climate control, ten way power driver's seat and eight-way power passenger seat, and a 13-speaker Bose sound-system system. Despite being well-equipped, there are a few quibbles to contend with. These include the outdated infotainment software that can be frustrating to operate and a center stack that suffers from button-overload.
For anyone considering one an Armada, space is no doubt a priority. In that regard, the biggest Nissan certainly delivers. There's ample room for the first two rows, but the third row is probably best left to children if the drive covers more than city limits. There's also plenty of cargo space: 16 cubic feet behind the third row, and nearly 50 cubes with that most rearward row folded down. Lay the second row flat, and you'll have almost 100 cubic feet of space to play with.
