2022 Nissan Armada for Sale in Warwick, RI
There’s no substitute for the spaciousness and capability provided by the 2022 Nissan Armada. Not only does this full-sized SUV offer seating for up to eight, but its expansive cargo area and eye-opening towing capacity (up to 8,500 pounds) mean you can bring just about everything along for the adventure.
Underneath the Armada’s chiseled exterior is the most powerful standard engine in the segment. Best of all, you can choose the Armada that matches your needs, whether you plan to stay on the asphalt or take it to the trails. The lineup ranges from the S trim, which offers all of the necessary comforts and technologies for today, to the luxury-laden Platinum, for those who want to spoil themselves and their passengers.
Mechanical Basics and Trims
The 2022 Armada’s quintet of trim levels consists of the S, SV, SL, Midnight Edition, and Platinum. Power for all of them comes from a 5.6-liter V8 engine making 400 horsepower and 413 lb.-ft. of torque; the transmission is a seven-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but four-wheel drive is optional across the board. The official EPA-estimated fuel economy for RWD versions is 14 mpg in city driving and 19 mpg on the highway; 4WD Armadas promise just 1 mpg lower, at 13 city/18 highway.
This full-sized SUV’s base level is set up solidly with a mix of expected and unexpected features. For example, it has fabric seats as well as power-folding heated exterior mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators, auto on/off LED headlights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, proximity key with push-button start, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, and a 7-inch driver information display. The interior is spacious and comfortable with a ten-way power driver’s seat with lumbar controls, an eight-way power front passenger seat with adjustable lumbar support, dual-zone automatic climate control, and air conditioning with separate rear-seat controls. On its exterior, the S is equipped with running boards, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a tow hitch receiver.
The infotainment system centers around a 12.3-inch touchscreen; its features include navigation, a sound system with four speakers, wireless smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The other standard connectivity features are four USB ports, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and access to Nissan telematics. Nissan takes vehicle safety most seriously, and as such every 2022 Armada is equipped with Nissan Safety Shield 360. This package of advanced driver aid technologies includes automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alert with rear emergency braking. Adaptive cruise control and a driver attention alert also come standard.
The SV raises the appeal with easy-care simulated leather seats (heated in the front row), wireless device charging, roof rails, upgraded exterior trim, rear privacy glass, and a trailer brake controller. The sound system is upgraded with an additional pair of speakers. The available SV Appearance Package will add a power liftgate, all-season tires on 20-inch alloy wheels, LED fog lights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
All of the elements listed for the SV Appearance Package become standard on the SL, along with genuine leather seats, remote start, a power moonroof, a driver’s memory system (for seat and mirror position), and trailer sway control. There’s an option for the Captain’s Chair Package, which replaces the three-person second row with two captain’s chairs and a center console, dropping the seating capacity to seven. The infotainment system goes premium with a Bose sound system, and the driver-assist suite gets the Intelligent Around-View Monitor.
This is essentially an appearance package that blacks out the grille, bumper fascias, badging, and side mirrors and adds black accents to the 20-inch, 12-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels. It also swaps in carbon interior trim for added style.
Those who want the height of elegance and comfort should look toward the Platinum, with its heated steering wheel and quilted leather seats, which are heated and ventilated in the front row and heated in the second row; the third-row bench seat splits 60/40 and has a power recline-and-fold feature. This loaded trim also has rain-sensing windshield wipers, 22-inch alloy wheels, and additional exterior trim upgrades. On the technology side, traffic sign recognition joins the driver-assist suite, and a tri-zone entertainment system with two 8-inch monitors and two sets of wireless headphones helps the miles go by on extended road trips. The Captain’s Chair Package is also an option for Platinum buyers.
