2018 Nissan Armada Review

Welcome to Sheridan Nissan! We are your top Nissan dealership serving New Castle, DE. We understand choosing the right vehicle takes time to research your options. If you are looking to upgrade to a full-size SUV, the 2018 Nissan Armada has seating for up to 8 people, ample cargo space and efficient power. With four available models and countless features and packages, you can build your dream car.

How does the Nissan Armada perform?

Don’t let its size fool you—you will never feel weighed down while driving this SUV. As reported in Car and Driver, the Armada has a top speed of 133 mph, and can go from 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds. It’s 5.6L V8 engine delivers a mighty 390 horsepower and 394 lbs.-ft. of torque. A 7-speed automatic transmission ensures a smooth, seamless drive every time.

Not only does it put out a great deal of power, but also proves itself to be quite capable. It can haul up to an impressive 8,500 lbs. This means you can easily bring a boat, RV or trailer along for your travels.

No matter the weather or road conditions, the Armada will automatically adjust to ensure a smooth ride. Equipped with Intelligent 4×4, the Armada continuously monitors road conditions and adjusts as needed. When the road becomes slick, it will automatically engage 4-wheel drive, and when enough traction is present again, goes back to normal to improve fuel economy.

A Perfect Combination of Technology and Entertainment

Once you’re sure the Armada performs well, you will want to make sure all the bells and whistles inside the car perform just as well. This SUV was made for family road trips. With the available Tri-Zone Entertainment System, everyone in the back seats can view a movie or play a video game by connecting to the system. With headphones, they can enjoy their movie or game on an 8-inch screen mounted into the back of the front headrests, while the front passengers can enjoy whatever they choose to listen to using NissanConnect® to stream their own music via Bluetooth® or connect to apps like Pandora® and iHeart Radio. You can also access other apps on your phone through the touch-screen display or using voice-activated technology.

Additionally, use the Nissan Navigation System to get to your vacation destination without missing a turn. The 8-inch display gives you a map and audible directions.

Comfort, Cargo and Safety

The Nissan Armada comfortably seats up to 8 passengers. The driver and front passenger are able to set their own climate with Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control. Passengers in the first and second row can also enjoy heated seats. Each passenger is guaranteed to feel comfortable on the drive.

Furthermore, with the available Nissan Intelligent Key, remotely start your car so it’s at the perfect temperature when you get in.

The Armada offers 171.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third rows folded down flat, and 23.6 cubic feet with both rows up. Hide more precious cargo in the underfloor storage area to keep it out of sight.

The Armada comes standard with 6 airbags, advanced braking, an anti-locking braking system and a traction control system. If you cannot avoid a collision, Nissan Zone Body construction is designed to absorb the impact to further protect you and anyone else in the car.

So, as you can see, the 2018 Nissan Armada is the perfect full-sized SUV for the family. It performs in the top of its class, provides the tools to stay connected with your friends and family on the go and is both comfortable and spacious.
