Premium luxury and power come together in Nissan’s full-size 2023 Armada Platinum. It’s a big SUV that is powerful, roomy, and loaded with advanced technology and features. And it returns in 2023 with only a few changes. The Nissan Armada, redesigned in 2021, retains its powerful V8 engine and adds a remote start, LED fog lights, and heated steering wheels.
The 2023 Nissan Armada is about more than just raw power in a full-size SUV. It also boasts various performance features that enhance the driving experience. The Armada is designed to handle any road condition with its advanced suspension systems to intelligent all-wheel drive. The Armada’s suspension remained stable whether I was driving on rough city streets or cruising on the highway.
Power: The 2023 Nissan Armada is powered by a 5.6-liter turbocharged V8 that produces 400 horsepower and 413 lb. ft. of torque and has a maximum towing capacity of 8,500 pounds. While a seven-speed transmission manages gear shifts, an intelligent all-wheel drive system continuously monitors road conditions. It adjusts its power distribution to each wheel for optimal traction and control.
Models/Price: The Armada has four trim levels, including the Armada S ($52,495), SV ($57,095), SL ($60,915), and Platinum ($69,165). The full-size, three-row Armada seats seven to eight passengers and comes in rear or four-wheel drive.
The 2023 Nissan Armada also has advanced technology and connectivity options that keep you connected and in control. The state-of-the-art infotainment system features a large 12.3 touchscreen display that provides easy access to navigation, entertainment, and vehicle settings. With voice recognition technology, you can control various functions with simple voice commands, keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.
Safety/Driver Assist: One of the standout safety features in the 2023 Armada is the Intelligent Around View Monitor. This system uses multiple cameras to give you a 360-degree view of your surroundings, making parking and maneuvering in tight spaces a breeze.
The Armada also features advanced driver-assistance systems like adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. These systems use sensors and cameras to monitor your surroundings and help you maintain a safe distance from other vehicles while keeping you in the lane.
Fuel Economy: However, fuel economy is not one of its strong points. The EPA rates the rear-wheel-drive at 14 city/19 highway mpg and the four-wheel drive with one less mpg.
