While many manufacturers of full-size SUVs have transitioned to car-based platforms, Nissan continues to entice drivers with a traditional truck-based model that can tow up to 8,500 pounds. Drivers interested in this vehicle now have the option of the new 2023 Nissan Armada at Empire Lakewood Nissan serving Denver Lakewood Longmont Colorado.
The 2023 model continues the second Armada generation. There are no significant changes, but Nissan has tweaked the standard features across the board, including adding Amazon Alexa.
Every new Nissan Armada near Denver is powered by a 5.6-liter V8 that makes 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard. Four-wheel drive with low-range gearing is available, and the V8 is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission in either case.
A 12.3-inch infotainment touch screen is standard across the board. Notable features include wired Android Auto, wireless Apple CarPlay, integrated navigation, NissanConnect connected services, in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot and a rearview camera system. For the SL and Platinum, that system is upgraded with a 360-degree camera. Most other driver assists are standard, including parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, front and rear automatic braking and blind-spot monitoring with intervention. The notable exception is a digital rearview mirror, which is exclusive to the Platinum.
Alloy wheels are standard, and the wheel sizes offered at Empire Lakewood Nissan range from 18 to 22 inches. Some trailering equipment is included standard. There are various Class III trailering options as well, and the maximum towing capacity is 8,500 pounds. The base model is pre-wired for a trailer brake controller. That equipment is standard with the SV trim and up. The SL and Platinum also have trailer sway damping.
The S is the most affordable Armada but impressively well equipped, including most of the advanced driver assists. The SV adds cabin amenities and roof rails and opens up more exterior appearance options. The SL adds luxuries and tech and is available with the Midnight Edition appearance, and the Platinum boasts high-end exclusives, such as quilted leather and a digital rearview mirror.
The S and SV trim levels are available in three exterior colors: Brilliant Silver Metallic, Gun Metallic and Super Black. Starting with the SL, you also have the option of Hermosa Blue Pearl and the Midnight Edition appearance package, which is limited to Gun Metallic and Super Black. The Platinum has the widest color selection of all adding options like Aspen White TriCoat and Coulis Red Metallic.
