2014 Nissan Armada Summary

Changes for the 2014 Nissan Armada:

Nissan makes no changes to the full-size 2014 Armada SUV, which enters its eleventh year of production in current format.

Model Lineup:

Available in SL, SL, and Platinum trim levels, the 2014 Nissan Armada is a 3-row, 8-passenger, full-size SUV based on the same platform as the Nissan Titan pickup truck. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with 4-wheel drive offered as an option.

Upgrading to the SL trim level brings leather seats, fake wood trim, heated front seats, a power-folding third-row seat, a power rear liftgate, a premium audio system, Nissan Intelligent Key passive entry with push-button ignition, a universal garage door opener, and a reversing camera. This version of the Armada also includes a rear auto-leveling air suspension and 20-inch aluminum wheels finished in dark chrome.

The Armada Platinum model features a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, a navigation system with real-time traffic and weather reports, a power sunroof, and a rear-seat entertainment system. From the outside, chrome wheels, power folding side mirrors, and front parking assist sensors identify the Platinum model. Nissan offers a Platinum Reserve Package for the Platinum model, which upgrades the SUV with a 2-tone brown/tan leather interior, real wood trim, and dark chrome trim on the outside.

Engines and Transmissions:

The Armada’s 5.6-liter V-8 engine generates 317 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 385 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,400 rpm, providing 9,000 pounds of maximum towing capacity. A 5-speed automatic transmission is standard, featuring a Tow/Haul mode, and the optional All-Mode 4-wheel-drive system features 2WD, Automatic, 4WD Hi, and 4WD Lo settings.

Fuel Economy Ratings:

Fuel economy is not the Armada’s strong suit. The V-8 engine is rated to return 15 mpg with 2WD and 14 mpg with 4WD, and that’s the combined rating. City fuel economy dips to 12 mpg with 4WD.

Safety Ratings:

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has performed crash tests on the Nissan Armada. The NHTSA does give the SUV a rollover resistance rating, which measures an unimpressive 3 stars.

Technology Highlights:

The Armada’s available rear-seat entertainment system is equipped with dual 7-inch display screens embedded into the front-seat head restraints, dual USB ports, dual wireless headphones, and a set of video game input jacks.
