2021 vs 2022 Nissan Armada: Key Differences
The 2021 Armada update was a relatively major one, involving an exterior face lift and plenty of new tech. Following on from that, the 2022 model sees only a few changes, the most important one being one-touch power folding of the third-row seats in the top-level Platinum trim.
Generous Power Under the Hood
A full-size SUVs performance lives or dies by the engine driving the powertrain, and the 2022 Armada delivers generously in this area. A meaty 5.6L V8 pushes out 400 horsepower and 413lb-ft of torque, an output that has no problem propelling the sizable three-row frame with confidence and poise. There's a choice between rear-wheel drive or intelligent all-wheel drive, with a smooth seven-speed automatic transmission standard on every model.
Great Towing Capacity
The truck-like powertrain delivers an exceptional towing ability as well as smooth acceleration and highway passing. When fitted with the optional trailer sway control system, every model in the range has a maximum towing capacity of 3,855kg, more than enough for hauling camping gear, dirt bikes, kayaks, and more for trips into the wilderness.
Advanced Interior Technology
The spacious cabin provides a generous level of technology for its maximum of eight occupants, including a full Wi-Fi hotspot facility to keep every passenger connected wherever you roam. The infotainment system is based around a high-resolution 12.3" touchscreen display as standard on every model, featuring Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and in-built navigation with automatic traffic and weather updates.
And as the icing on the cake, the higher trims boast an optional rear seat entertainment system providing two extra 8" screens to deliver multimedia to those sitting in rows two and three.
Active Safety and Driver Assistance Features
The Armada's position at the head of the Nissan lineup means it's equipped with a generous set of active systems to provide a safer, smoother drive. The features are accessed through a dedicated 7" driver assist screen, taking this vital function safely away from the infotainment features. Key standard and available highlights include:
- Forward collision warnings with pedestrian detection.
- Automatic forward emergency braking.
- Automated rear emergency braking for collision prevention.
- Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Driver alertness monitor.
- Lane departure warnings and lane keep assist.
- Adaptive cruise control.
