The 2021 Nissan Armada Introduced, Sporting a Beauty Makeover

Nissan gives the largest SUV in its lineup a significant beauty makeover. The 2021 Nissan Armada offers a more muscular style, but above all, its interior gets a good and much-needed dose of modernity.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

A cushy and spacious interior supplements the Armada’s classy outer shell. Its cabin is well insulated from outside noise, and most materials are attractive and soft. The Armada has three rows of seats and can accommodate up to eight passengers, but capacity drops to seven with the optional second-row captain’s chairs. These fold easily and quickly with a handle that springs the seat forward; resetting the seat must be done manually, however. The power- folding third row (standard on the SL and up) can be adjusted via buttons in the cargo area or on the third row’s armrests, but snails move faster. Even compared with newer rivals, the Armada feels fancy and has plenty of third-row legroom. The top-of-the-line Platinum model has quilted seat surfaces and imitation open-pore wood trim, accentuating the luxury-SUV ambiance.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

A powerful 5.6-liter V-8 with a civilized seven-speed automatic transmission is the Armada’s only powertrain. The engine makes up to 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque on premium fuel. It pairs with either rear- or all-wheel drive, and every model can tow 8500 pounds. We haven’t track-tested an Armada with the extra power, but we have driven one and appreciated its effortless thrust. Despite its large proportions, the Armada drove surprisingly well thanks to its fully independent suspension, but its handling doesn’t hold a candle to the nimbler Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon.

Our test vehicle had a smooth and hushed ride even though it rolled on 22-inch wheels (18-inchers are standard). Its soft-riding nature didn’t negatively affect our sense of control, but its steering was imprecise and slow to react, which allowed the SUV to wander on the highway like a member of its Spanish namesake. Along with impressive results in our emergency-braking test, the Nissan’s brake pedal delivered good feel and consistent feedback.
