The 2022 Nissan Armada will get only minimal changes for this model year. It will see significant exterior modifications with regard to its design. Offered with a lineup of 4 trims it gets only a single powertrain option, a 5.6L 8-cylinder engine. The lineup is priced at an MSRP range beginning at $52,600 and extending to $68,500. All the four trims get two drivetrains to choose from, AWD and 4WD. 

It comes with a fine towing capacity of 8500 pounds but loses out in terms of returning a decent fuel efficiency. The interiors are comforting but aren't as spacious as the competition offers. Even the cargo space on offer isn't satisfactory, rivals such as the 2022 Ford expedition, the 2022 Toyota Sequoia, and the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe put up strong competition against it.

Overall Rating


The 2022 Nissan Armada is offered with four trims in its lineup and is priced between $52,600 and $68,500. Despite having two drivetrains to pick from, the 2022 Armada gets only a single powertrain option, a 5.6L 8-cylinder engine. It further offers an above-average 8500-pound towing capacity and is set back by its below-average fuel efficiency return.

On the inside, the Armada is quite spacious, though not the best in class. It faces a lot of rivalry from the competitors with regard to the interior features and cargo space. It offers the least in terms of cargo measuring just 16.5 cubic feet. The exterior design for the 2022 model year gives it a modern look, in terms of dimension there isn't any significant change from the previous year. It faces rivalry from the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe, the 2022 Ford Expedition, and the 2022 Toyota Sequoia.

2022 Nissan Armada Engine and Performance

8.0/10

"A powerful 5.6-liter V-8 with a civilized seven-speed automatic transmission is the Armada's only powertrain." - Car and Driver

All models of the 2022 Nissan Armada are expected to get the same 5.6L V8 engine option, which recently received a retune which bumped the power up to 400 hp and the torque output to 413 lb-ft. The engine is paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels.

 2022 Nissan Armada SUV in action

All-wheel-drive is available as an option on all models for $3,000 extra, and all models can tow up to 8,500 pounds. The 5.6L V8 is more than enough for normal driving even with a full load of passengers and is shared with other Nissan models like the Titan and some INFINITI models like the QX80.

Despite its heavyweight and big dimensions, the V8 engine is capable of propelling the Armada to 60 in just 5.8 seconds and will reach the quarter-mile in 14.6 seconds, which is impressive for a full-size SUV. Nissan has tuned the suspension for comfort like most SUVs, which gives it a soft and comfortable ride with slow and well-assisted steering. The brakes of the SUV are also very impressive with good feedback and stopping power.

2022 Nissan Armada Fuel Economy

7.0/10

"All Armadas are powered by the same V-8 engine and automatic transmission, a combination that makes the Nissan less fuel efficient than most of its rivals." - Car and Driver

The Nissan Armada continues to get a big V8 engine compared to some of its rivals which get more efficient turbocharged engines with lower capacity. As expected with the bigger engine, fuel economy figures are among the lowest in its class. The 2022 Armada is slated to get the same powertrain options as the previous year’s model, so we can expect similar gas mileage figures. Despite having a big V8 engine and making the most power output, the Armada is very economical with a combined rating of 15 MPG. The Armada also gets a large tank at 26 gallons, which gives it an impressive highway range of 494 miles, while the city range is limited to 338 miles.

Rivals like the 2022 Ford Expedition use a more efficient Turbocharged Ecoboost engine with a combined rating of 20 MPG, giving it a range of 450 miles, while both the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and the 2022 Toyota Sequoia offer similar V8 engines. The 2022 Expedition is the most efficient of the 3 with a combined efficiency of 20 MPG, while the Toyota Sequoia is only capable of putting out 14 MPG.

2022 Nissan Armada Interior

9.0/10

"A cushy and spacious interior supplements the Armada's classy outer shell." - Car and Driver

The Nissan Armada received a comprehensive update to its interiors with the 2021 refresh. The interior is very spacious and comfortable with seating for up to 8 passengers. Like most SUVs in this class, the third row is best reserved for shorter journeys and children. Getting into the third row is a breeze with one-touch folding for the second row. Interior space will remain the same as the previous model year, with plenty of space in all three rows.

 2022 Nissan Armada SUV cockpit area

The power-folding third row is available on the higher trim levels for added convenience. The quality level is good with plenty of soft-touch materials and a well-laid-out dashboard. The floating 12.3-inch infotainment system is placed at the top and easily readable with plenty of features on offer, including NissanConnect services. All the SUVs in the competition come with a seating capacity of 8.

We can expect wireless Android Auto in the 2022 model like most of its rivals.

Some notable interior features include:

  • A standard 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment

"....the 2022 Armada gets the smallest of updates" - Car and Driver

The 2022 Nissan Armada looks rugged and handsome, thanks to the recent refresh which gave it a more prominent front-end design with a new grille, fender, bumper, LED headlights, and taillights with C-shaped DRLs, and an angular rear windshield that makes it look more proportional.

 2022 Nissan Armada SUV 

Because of the recent updates, the 2022 Nissan Armada is expected to get the same styling with some minor updates here and there. The SUV weighs 5,577 lbs and stands 9.2 inches above the ground.

The cargo space will remain the same as there are no expected exterior dimension changes. With the updated styling, the Armada looks more modern, bringing it in line with the competition. The overall design still looks boxy with some modern touches thrown in. It still doesn’t compare to some of its rivals like the Lincoln Navigator or Chevrolet Tahoe, but the updated front end does improve the styling considerably.

Some of the more notable features are:

  • LED Headlights and taillights
  • C-shaped DRLs
  • Powered moonroof
  • Black design elements with the midnight edition
  • New grille with chrome accents
  • Body-colored fender flares

2022 Nissan Armada Safety

8.0/10

"Every Armada has a host of standard driver-assistance technology." - Car and Driver

With the 2021 refresh, the Safety Shield 360 system became standard on all variants. We can expect the 2022 Nissan Armada to be a carryover model considering the recent refresh has made it competitive for a few more years. Higher trims get features like an intelligent rearview monitor, trailer sway control, backup intervention, surround-view camera, and traffic sign recognition.

2022 Nissan Armada

Unfortunately, both the IIHS and NHTSA haven’t tested the Armada yet. The 2020 model, which gets the same chassis and platform, received the lowest rating in its class, with just 4 stars out of 5 in the NHTSA tests. Hopefully, Nissan has improved the safety with the 2021 refresh. The IIHS does more advanced tests, especially for the active safety features, but unfortunately, the 2021 Nissan Armada hasn’t been tested yet even by IIHS. Standard advanced safety features include:

  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane intervention
  • Forward collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Blindspot warning
  • Blindspot intervention
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Rearview monitor
  • Front and rear sonar system
  • High beam assist

2022 Nissan Armada Competition

6.0/10

2022 Nissan Armada vs 2022 Ford Expedition

With a more efficient and powerful Ecoboost engine and better towing and off-road capabilities, the Ford Expedition continues to be the best in the segment. The Expedition gets a lot more cargo capacity at 57.5 cubic feet and has better packaging on the inside, with plenty of space even on the third row. The Expedition also gets a long-body Expedition Max model for added practicality, unlike the Nissan Armada. For 2022, the Expedition is slated to receive a Mach-E sourced much-improved infotainment system that will trump the Nissan Armada.

2022 Ford Expedition

2022 Nissan Armada vs 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe

Like the Nissan Armada, the Chevrolet Tahoe also received significant updates for the 2021 model year, which also includes a new Diesel powertrain. Both SUVs get similar interiors with plenty of features on offer. The Chevrolet Tahoe also offers a choice of two V8 engines other than the Diesel powertrain. The Tahoe is also more efficient than the Armada with an advanced 10-speed transmission, coming out to be a better choice.

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe

2022 Nissan Armada vs 2022 Toyota Sequoia

Unlike the Nissan Armada, the Toyota Sequoia is in much need of an update. The Sequoia is also a lot less efficient with a lower tow rating of just 7,400 points, limiting practicality. However, the Toyota Sequoia continues to be the most reliable SUV in its class and the least depreciating. The 2022 Sequoia is slated to get a completely redesigned exterior, improved interiors, and more safety features, which will make it a lot more competitive.

2022 Toyota Sequoia

 

2022 Nissan Armada Final Verdict

Even though the 2022 Nissan Armada will be a carryover model with minor updates, it is still a very good option for customers looking for a comfortable and practical SUV. The V8 engine offers plenty of performance while also being very efficient, and offers an impressive towing capacity of 8,500 lbs. With a plethora of features on offer including the Nissan Safety Shield 360, the Armada continues to be a decent option in its class and segment.
