The 2018 Nissan Armada not only takes the adventurous spirit of the 2017 model to the next level, but it also adds luxurious enhancements and advanced technology that is sure to impress. We at Pat Peck Nissan have put together this review of the 2018 Armada to introduce shoppers in Gulfport, Pascagoula, and Waveland to a few of the highlights of this capable SUV.

We’ll get started by opening up the front hood and seeing what kind of power the 2018 Armada has to offer.

Powerful Performance


The 2018 Nissan Armada has one impressive engine that comes standard in all four of its trim levels. The Endurance 5.6L V8 engine, which puts out a best-in-class1 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. It also comes paired with a rear-wheel drivetrain and 7-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode.

This standard mechanical configuration allows for the Armada to tow a best-in-class2 standard maximum of 8,500 pounds. Rather than having to add more equipment to make these capabilities possible, you can count on even the base trim level of the Armada to produce that much towing capability.

Additionally, you can upgrade the drivetrain to the optional intelligent 4×4 drivetrain for enhanced performance and control. This smart system monitors all four wheels individually and adjusts the torque for each individual tire to maximize traction on every surface.

Luxurious Interior

What makes the interior of the 2018 Armada so luxurious is its combination of premium entertainment features and spacious comfort. For starters, this vehicle is equipped with the 13-speaker Bose® Premium audio system. This system can do anything from playing CDs to streaming music from any Bluetooth® capable device.

While you’re enjoying surround-sound entertainment from this smart audio system, feel free to sprawl out and make yourself comfortable. You’ll have 41.9 inches of legroom to do so in the first row, along with 40.9 inches of front headroom. The second row has 41 inches of legroom and 40 inches of headroom.

Advanced Safety Features

The 2018 Armada is packed with safety features, both active and passive, to keep you and your precious cargo as safe as possible. This SUV comes with many advanced standard features, including the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS), and a tire pressure monitoring system.

With a few small upgrades, you’ll be able to enjoy several other advanced active safety features, like Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Back-up Intervention, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. These systems use sensors to monitor your vehicle’s surroundings and help to eliminate problems caused by line-of-sight interference.

Another impressive safety feature that’s available for the 2018 Armada is the Intelligent Rear-View Mirror. Say your full to the brim with luggage and can’t see through the rear window using the traditional rearview mirror. No problem!
