2012 Nissan Armada
Space for eight comfy explorers
With a second-row bench, Armada offers seating for up to eight. The third row can seat three adults comfortably, and the second row is roomy enough to stretch out and enjoy the adventure.
Seven sit like kings
The available second-row captain’s chairs lets seven passengers ride in style.
Flexibility is second nature to Armada
All three rows on the passenger side of the Armada (cloth models only) fold flat, so not only are you livin’ large, you are bringing impossibly long items for the journey. The innovative 40/20/40 2nd-row bench seat adds even more versatility.
97 cubic feet maximize versatility
With the third row up, Armada offers up to 20 cubic feet of cargo capacity. Move the third row down for 56 cubic feet of storage while still comfortably seating five. When the second and third rows are folded flat, Armada lets you and your favorite co-pilot store a massive 97 cubic feet of gear.
The available power-folding third-row bench seat adds ease at the touch of a button.
Comfort is customizable in Armada
The available Memory System allows you and another driver to save your preferred positions. The Nissan Intelligent Key® recognizes who is who, then moves the power driver’s seat, the power adjustable pedals and power outside mirrors accordingly.
The temperature is just right
Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) lets the drive and front passenger set their own temperature. The rear air conditioning with rear controls helps ensure everyone is comfortable. Add in available heated front and rear seats plus a heated steering wheel and you’ll find yourself surrounded in convenience, comfort and technology.
Enter and exit without ever touching the key
Approach your Armada with your key in your pocket or bag, and the available Nissan Intelligent Key® senses that you’ve arrived. The system unlocks the doors and rear liftgate as soon as you touch the button on the door handle.
For an additional measure of convenience, the available power rear liftgate automatically opens with just a pull of the handle or touch of a button on the Nissan Intelligent Key®.
Touch-screen, voice-activated traffic control
Navigate through congested areas easier with the available touch-screen, voice-activated Nissan Hard Drive Navigation System. Its advanced XM NavTraffic® feature displays color-coded, real-time traffic advisories to help you steer clear of the gridlock.
Keep the music going
Armada might just be the biggest playlist around. Add XM® Satellite Radio, plug in your iPod®, load 6 MP3/WMA CDs in the available 6-CD changer, or bring your mp3 music files on a Compact Flash® card and you’ll be able to keep the family happy from coast to coast and back again.
Mile after mile of video entertainment
In addition to watching movies, you can play your camcorder through the available Nissan DVD Entertainment System’s auxiliary inputs or plug in your video game system on the large 8” flip-down monitor.
Go Bluetooth®. Go hands- free
With the available Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, the voice-recognition feature allows you to make and receive calls through the stereo speaker system. No earpiece, no reaching, just a nice firm grip on the steering wheel.
Armada captures its surroundings
Armada’s standard Rear Sonar System and optional Front Sonar System help you maneuver in tight spaces. The available RearView Monitor helps you see objects behind you when parking. It activates whenever you’re in reverse and is also ideal for lining up your approach to a boat trailer.
POWER & RIDE
Brains, as well as power, come with this massive engine. Armada’s 5.6 liter, 32-valve Endurance V8 churns out 317-horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque. And the Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV) option allows Armada to run on ethanol E85, standard gasoline or any mixture of the two fuels.
Live large and in charge with Armada’s 9,000-lb towing capacity. Featuring Tow/Haul mode, an innovative available auto-leveling rear suspension and the brute strength of the 5.6-liter Endurance V8, Armada makes pulling your full-size toys a breeze. A full-length boxed frame lies at the heart of the high-strength foundation, and the independent rear suspension helps absorb bumps and offers quicker road response and a comfortable ride.
Available All-Mode 4WD is so advanced it responds instantly to changing road condition and continuously adjusts the amount of power distributed to each wheel for maximum control. All-Mode automatically switches to 4-Wheel Drive to improve traction on rough terrain, and switches back to 2-Wheel Drive for optimal fuel economy when things smooth out.
Safety starts with six standard air bags
The Nissan Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags equipped with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. Armada also has front side-impact supplemental air bags built into the seat, so they move with you. In addition, roof-mounted curtain supplemental air bags help protect you in the event of a side impact of rollover.
Four key active safety features help Armada prevent trouble before it starts
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) helps you stay on your steered path by reducing engine speed and/or applying appropriate brake pressure to specific wheels. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent your wheels from locking. Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) senses wheel spin and applies braking pressure to the slipping wheel(s), while redirecting power to the wheel(s) with the best traction. And Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) detects additional weight and sends added brake force to the rear wheels.
Brake Override Technology
A vital component of the Nissan Safety Shield, Brake Override Technology has been standard on every Nissan vehicle since 2005.
