For 2023 MY, the muscular SUV is expected to carry forward without any change. While it does signify that its weaknesses remain intact, the Nissan Armada’s comprehensiveness will certainly allow it to be a buyer’s favorite. In the current iteration, the Japanese proposition is pegged to be priced at $50,900 for its base option. The prices are subject to increase as buyers opt for the optional packages and features. However, in all cases, the 2023 Armada is expected to fall in a similar ballpark as seasoned options like the GMC Yukon, the Chevrolet Tahoe, and the Toyota Sequoia.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The Nissan Armada is one such example, which despite its slightly turbulent history, continues as a consistent proposition. It carries an enticing exterior design and is revered for its cogent V8 engine and smooth driving experience. While the dimensions can be overwhelming and the interior might seem to be slightly dated, the Armada’s taut structure, high degree of reliability, and impressive safety scores make it a perfect companion for family-oriented buyers.

 


Features

The 2023 Nissan Armada will be introduced with no major changes. As a result, the four-tier trim structure, which has been typical of the SUV for quite some time, will continue in a similar fashion. This structure starts with the base S variant, which is expected to be priced at $50,900, and covers the SV and SL trims as well. It ends with the top-tier Platinum trim, which will carry an MSRP of $70,200. While each trim will be underpinned by a standard V8 engine and two drivetrain options, the distinction between each trim will be their feature sets, which are expected to be a concoction of practicality and opulence in each option.

We Recommend

Since all trims will continue to make use of a standard engine option, the decision for the most desirable trim will depend on the user’s requirement and budget. For us, the 2023 Nissan Armada SV with the AWD setup makes for a logical choice. Not only does it sport better features than the base variant like wireless charging, improved upholstery, and heated front seats, but it also keeps the price in check at $58,070. Currently, no information regarding the package options is currently available, however, once released, buyers can spend extra dollars to equip their SUVs with better features.

Release Date

The 2023 Nissan Armada’s release date has not yet been confirmed. However, considering the current developments and past timelines, we expect the SUV to be available at dealerships by the next quarter.

Engine and Performance

The 2023 Nissan Armada is a carryover model from the previous iteration, without any mechanical changes. So, under the hood, the fullsize SUV will continue to sport a beefy 5.6L V8 engine. This unit is good for 400hp and 413 lb.-ft of torque, which makes it one of the most powerful options available in the class. It comes mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission unit that powers the rear wheels of the vehicle as standard. However, considering the muscular build and the perspective buyers’ appetite for adventure, a 4WD setup is also available as optional on all the trims.

Purely in terms of performance as well, the 2023 Armada can continue its stint as a segment leader. Similar to 2022 MY, we expect the Japanese proposition to uphold its 0-60 MPH timings of 6.2 seconds and breach the quarter-mile mark in 14.8 seconds. Additionally, the SUV can manage a top speed of 142 MPH, which feels cogent considering its overall dimensions.

In comparison, only the 2022 Toyota Sequoia stands a competitive chance against the Armada. With its diminutively lower outputs, the other Japanese contender amongst the lot manages a 0-60mph sprint in just 6.4 seconds, which is only 0.2 seconds slower. On the other hand, the American siblings, Chevroletand GMC, fall short when acceleration is concerned. Despite sporting burly V8 engines under their hoods, the lower outputs of 355hp and 383 lb.-ft of torque affect the overall power delivery in the SUVs.

2023 Nissan Armada Ride and Handling

Belonging to the fullsize SUV class that is limited by its dimensions, we expect the 2023 Nissan Armada to be a decent performer at best. While there is no doubting its hauling capabilities, the large vehicle’s handling might not the sharpest, and its maneuverability might also feel slightly restricted. However, each SUV in the class suffers from a similar problem. Nonetheless, like the outgoing model, we do expect Nissan’s refined demeanor to maintain relevance and the overall ride quality to remain sophisticated. Additionally, like always, the Armada’s build will favor it to deliver enticing performances both on and off the road, which can provide ample flexibility to all kinds of drivers.

2023 Nissan Armada Braking Performance

The 2023 Nissan Armada’s braking capabilities are not yet known. However, with no changes from last year, we expect the rotor sizes to remain similar at 13.8-inch at the front and back, respectively, which are fairly sized keeping in mind the dimensions. Additionally, the SUV is pegged to make use of 4-wheel disc brakes and a 4-wheel ABS setup, which will provide adequate sharpness and bite to the braking performance. So, while the halting distance is not yet known, we believe that the Armada will deliver class-competing performance, if not the best, in its segment.

In comparison, the braking performance of none of the vehicles is known. However, if curb weight and brake sizes are taken into consideration, the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe emerges as the best performer. Not only does it weigh the lightest in the segment at 5,473 lbs, but it also sports the largest brakes at 16.2 and 13.6 inches at the front and rear, respectively. On the other hand, the Toyota Sequoia is the heaviest, yet it sports almost similar brake sizes as the 2023 Armada.

Fuel Economy

With no mechanical changes, the 2023 Nissan Armada will be able to average 13 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway. However, like most cases where power is ample, the fuel efficiency remains restricted. The Armada ranks at the bottom of its class and by the grace of its sizable fuel tank, which holds 26 gallons, the SUV manages to deliver a combined range of 390 miles.

At 17 MPG in combined driving conditions, the 2022 GMC Yukon and 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe emerge as the most efficient options in their class. Despite sporting smaller tanks, they manage to lead the segment with an impressive range of 360 miles in the city and 480 miles on the highway. The 2022 Toyota Sequoia, on the other hand, has the largest fuel tank, which can hold 26.4-gallons. But it also falls short in terms of range and mileage.

Interior

Enter the cabin of the 2023 Nissan Armada through its wide-opening doors and you are sure to feel welcomed. On the inside, the SUV is expected to continue in its old ways as well. Leatherette or leather upholstery covers the seats and the dash, while wooden inlays adorn the door handles. Like always, the Armada’s material quality should not disappoint the buyers. Rather its ostentatiousness will add flavor to the experience. However, it is the overall setup, which continues without any change, might look slightly outdated compared to new age rivals.

Nonetheless, the practicality of the interior should remain unwavering. With similar dimensions as before, the front and second-row seats will provide maximum space to the buyers. The SUV can seat seven or eight passengers, depending on whether the buyers opt for a captain chair configuration. The feel-good upholstery and ample cushion padding will also ensure that comfort does not go for a toss. The third row, however, can be disappointing. While the one-touch fold option will uphold easy accessibility, the lack of leg space and headroom will continue to irk most buyers. Additionally, even the cargo capacity that is pegged at 95.4 cubic feet might also feel underwhelming.

Every other SUV available in the market can seat eight passengers and offers better space in all its rows, to the extent that even the third row remains reasonably adult-friendly. However, if we were to name a winner in the class, the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe cleverly manages both interior and cargo space. There is a maximum amount of legroom in all three rows and it shares the throne for the highest cargo capacity at 122.6 cu.-ft with its corporate sibling, GMC. This is followed by the Toyota Sequoia, which vaunts a trunk volume of 120.1 cubic feet.

Some of the saline interior features of the 2023 Nissan Armada include:

  • Powered tilt and telescopic steering wheel
  • Leatherette/Leather upholstery
  • Power-adjustable front seats (with heated and ventilation functionality on higher trims)
  • Dark-tinted rear privacy glass
  • Universal garage door opener
  • SV Appearance or Midnight Edition Package

How intuitive is the 2023 Nissan Armada’s infotainment system?

The 2023 Nissan Armada will continue with an intuitive infotainment system. The 12.3-inch floating touchscreen display is expected to maintain relevance in the current iteration, alongside features like wireless Apple CarPlay, wired Android Auto, and Sirius XM satellite radio. It makes use of Nissan Connect services and this system does not require the users to be tech-savvy and is rather easy to adapt to. It sports a four-speaker sound system in the base trim, which is replaced by a six-speaker unit in the mid-level SV option. For the top-tier trims, however, the sound duties are handled by a 13-speaker Bose sound system. Additionally, a rear seat entertainment system can also be availed by the buyers of the Platinum trim, which includes two rear sea screens.

Some other standout infotainment specifications include:

  • Wired Android Auto connectivity
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay
  • 13-speaker Bose sound system
  • AM/FM Stereo
  • USB Connection
  • Rear seat entertainment system
Exterior

Despite no changes listed to its design, the 2023 Nissan Armada will look on par with most of its competitors. This is because the fullsize SUV, ever since the launch of its second generation, has adopted a cleaner look with sharp design elements. These include its striking headlights that complement the muscular grille to provide a beefy look up front. On the side and at the back, the distinct character lines, slightly subtle tail lamps, roof rails, and a rear spoiler all combine to give the vehicle a distinguishable avatar. The 18-inch wheels offered as standard add proportion to the overall design and the Platinum trim’s 22-inch alloy wheels also look beefy and immaculate.

In terms of dimensions, the Japanese SUV has always been class-competitive. At 208.9 inches of length and 121.1 inches of wheelbase, the Armada feels large and humungous. Its width and height are pegged at 79.9 and 75.8 inches, respectively. The ground clearance is also expected to remain similar at 9.1 inches, which makes the vehicle ready for all off-road conditions.

When dimensions are concerned, all SUVs remain typical to the class standards. The GMC Yukon is the widest SUV in the class yet it is the lightest at 5,490 lbs. Its sibling, the Chevrolet Tahoe, has a total length of 210.7 inches, but both SUVs do sport a similar wheelbase of 120.9 inches. The 2022 Toyota Sequoia, on the other hand, is the smallest in terms of overall dimensions. However, it does sport the longest wheelbase and ground clearance of 122 and 9.9 inches, respectively.

Some standout exterior features include:

  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • 22-inch alloy wheels (available with the Premium trim)
  • Fog Lamps
  • Heated exterior mirrors
  • Sunroof
  • Roof rails
Safety

Perhaps with no changes, the 2023 Nissan Armada can easily be declared the safest vehicle in the class. As has been typical to the SUV, we expect the 2023 iteration to come with advanced specifications as standard. These might include a blind-spot monitor, rear automatic braking, and a comprehensive set of cameras and parking sensors. All these options can easily help the vehicle establish its position, considering that the safety ratings might not be available since the 2022 iteration has also not been safety tested.

Some other salient safety features include:

  • Blind-spot intervention
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Mitigation System
  • Forward Collision Mitigation
  • Rear Cross-traffic Alert
  • Traction and Stability Control
Competition

2023 Nissan Armada vs 2022 GMC Yukon

With its recent redesign, the GMC Yukon currently rides on a novel platform. It is revered for its high comfort levels and a sound overall build. Its engines are potent and it comes with a healthy set of features. Even when pitted against the 2023 Nissan Armada, the American vehicle does not lose ground. In direct comparison with the Japanese proposition, Yukon’s worldliness with its impressive efficiency, better interior and cargo space, and modern design make it a better option despite its higher price tag.

2023 Nissan Armada vs 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe

The verdict in the comparison between the 2023 Nissan Armada and the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe is similar to the GMC. As a result, we would recommend buyers opt for the American option over the Japanese vehicle. This is because, at a price similar to the Armada, the Tahoe offers better frugality, added mileage, and top-notch cargo capacity. It also manages to etch its position in the market with its modern design and a newer underpinning as well.

2023 Nissan Armada vs 2022 Toyota Sequoia

In the competition between the Japanese vehicles, the 2023 Nissan Armada and 2022 Toyota Sequoia are rather closely matched. In all important aspects, the difference between the two SUVs is only diminutive. While the Armada is expected to be the quicker option among the two, the Sequoia offers slightly higher efficiency and better cargo capacity. So, any of the two vehicles can be chosen by the buyers. However, it is important to note that the Sequoia is slated for a complete overhaul in 2023 and we think that the buyers going for the Toyota SUV should wait until the introduction of the newer model.

Final Verdict

Considering that the 2023 Nissan Armada is slated to be introduced with minimal changes, the SUV promises to be a comprehensive choice. Its versatility lies in its quick acceleration and decent efficiency, which allows the vehicle to reek of practicality. The interior setup is expected to be top-notch in its material quality and while it could use a refresh, there is not much that buyers might complain about. Similarly, the exterior design continues as striking as ever, and with a long wheelbase at its disposal, interior space, apart from the third row, will never be a problem. So, the 2023 Nissan Armada can qualify as a cogent choice. However, if a used 2022 Nissan Armada for sale can be found at a tantalizing price, buyers should opt for it.
