Strength, style, and space. That's the 2022 Nissan Armada in a nutshell. This SUV is designed to accommodate your driving, towing, and off-roading needs while giving you and your family a comfortable ride with plenty of cargo room to pack large loads. Its top-notch capabilities make it a sustainable, functional, and exciting vehicle to drive. But, in classic Nissan style, the Armada is not just designed for functionality; it is artfully designed to be aesthetically pleasing. If you want to take a break from utilizing the vehicle's astonishing towing features and want to go out for a date night, the vehicle will be able to provide that romantic setting as well. The Armada is designed to suit all kinds of needs, and if you are looking to buy a versatile SUV, this is the place to look. To help you understand in detail what the 2022 Armada will provide for you, let's explore these three categories of the 2022 Nissan Armada: Strength, Style, and Space.
The Armada's body-on-frame construction gives the SUV not only a strong, bold stance, but a durable and endurance-oriented body, both inside and outside. Its welded ladder frame with full-length box section rails keeps everything stiff and tight, no matter what the driving circumstances, but it will be especially useful while towing.
Seeing as the Armada has a towing capacity of up to 8,500 pounds, you will be able to tow large loads. The Armada is armed and ready with a slew of towing technology and accessories. When it comes to hitching the trailer, the intelligent Around View Monitor will help make this happen easily by providing two views and guide lines. Once the trailer is attached, Tow-Haul Mode helps provide a smoother towing experience and provides Downhill Speed Control, preventing any mishaps from occurring. Trailer Sway Control will help make sure that your trailer remains straight and sturdy in bad weather and crosswinds by monitoring the motion of the trailer and applying brakes when necessary.
The 2022 Armada provides a trailer brake controller mounted in the center dash, allowing you to activate and adjust the trailer brakes so that you have direct control over the trailer. If your issue is on the opposite end and you need to get up a large hill without rolling, then Hill Start Assist will help you to climb that hill without an issue. All of this tied together by auto-leveling suspension will make for a smooth towing experience. But, it doesn't stop with the technology; Nissan has a number of accessories to aid your towing experience with the 2022 Armada.
The available Class III Hitch Ball Mount enables the vehicle to tow up to a maximum of 5,000 pounds. So, if you're looking to tow smaller loads, then this is your best option. If you are looking for something with a little more strength and flexibility, then the optional Class IV Weight-Distributing Hitch Ball Mount is where you'll want to look. This is a dealer-installed towing mount that increases safety when towing over 5,000 pounds and up to vehicle capacity. The weight distribution will be a huge help and a smart investment if you anticipate consistently towing large loads.
Your 2022 Armada will do marvelously on the road, but if you want to see its true capability, get it off the road. A 5.6-Liter Endurance V8 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift system (VVEL) allows for 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. Aside from making towing far easier, this will set you up with a thrilling ride, both on and off-road. If you're going off-road, though, switch over to 4HI mode, which will give you the capability you need for your environment. Combine all of this with the standard 7-speed automatic transmission, and you're in for a treat. If you want to experience an incredibly smooth shift, then try Manual Shift mode with Downshift Rev Matching. The Armada has a strong heart.
The Armada is designed with intelligent 4x4 with a two-speed transfer case; this means that you have plenty of options for improved traction. When in Auto Mode, the 2022 Armada will respond to the outside conditions by shifting power between the front and rear axles as necessary. Because of this construction and its advancing technology, the vehicle is well-equipped to perform highly in bad weather. If the weather gets really bad, simply switch to 4LO, and the vehicle will get the job done. If and when a wheel begins to slip, the Active Brake Limited Slip system kicks in and automatically brakes the slipping wheels and sends additional power to the wheels with the best traction. You want to stay safe on the road, and the 2022 Armada will help see to that.
When it comes to style, the place to look is the 2022 Nissan Armada Midnight Edition. Its dark complexion gives it a subtle intrigue exclusive to the Midnight Edition.
The 2022 Nissan Armada Midnight Edition, like the midnight hour itself, is pitch black with a hint of moonlight. Its black grille combined with blacked-out Nissan badging on the rear of the vehicle is nicely complemented by its hints of silver in the wheels (though even these host a black-painted machine finish), door handles, and window linings. The exterior of the Midnight Edition feels inviting and makes guests want to go inside.
Once inside, the interior of the Midnight Edition keeps the namesakes' aesthetic by keeping a dark complexion with sleek black everywhere to be found. Specially-branded carpet mats will remind riders that they are inside the Midnight Edition.
Even if the Midnight Edition is not for you, the other Armada trims will provide a stylish interior with leather-appointed seats bearing an elegant lattice pattern design. Adding to the comfort of these seats are the climate-controlled front seats and heated second-row outboard seats. The Driver's Memory System, which remembers the driver's preferred seat, steering wheel, and mirror positions, is able to sync with more than one Nissan Intelligent Key so that all consistent drivers need not worry about adjusting the driver's station to their needs, because the car will take care of this for you. Driving should always be comfortable for you and your passengers.
Aside from being stylish, the 2022 Nissan Armada's interior provides a great deal of space, both for passengers and for cargo. Offering three rows of seating, the Armada is able to seat up to eight passengers. The second row, while usually seating up to three on a bench seat, offers the option of captain's chairs, so those two passengers will enjoy more legroom. In addition to the legroom, even the third-row headroom of the vehicle is 36.7," so taller passengers will feel less cramped with a generous amount of headroom.
As to the third row, the seats operate on a one-touch power-folding system, so a significant amount of cargo room may be added to the vehicle in an instant. Add to this the under-floor cargo storage, which is excellent for hiding valuable items such as laptops, phones, wallets, etc. This will keep valuable items out of sight of any thieves, but more importantly, it also keeps them out of your sight and prevents clutter from occurring in the passenger area of the vehicle. When it comes to hiding items, we know you've seen the front-row center console, but the 2022 Armada offers a deep second-row console for extra storage. This will be very beneficial not only in that it adds extra storage space, but it will prevent the driver or front-row passenger from having to pass items back to the second row.
By folding down all the rear seats, the Armada offers up to 92.6 cubic feet of cargo space. That is truly an impressive amount of cargo space for an SUV. If you intend to make full use of this cargo space, the vehicle will make loading and unloading easy for you through features such as the power liftgate. We know you want to be able to hit the road more quickly and not get bogged down in the loading and unloading.
