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.
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.
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.
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.
