Nissan’s Fully Loaded And Blinged 2018 Armada Platinum Reserve

Nissan has revealed the new 2018 Armada Platinum Reserve at the State Fair of Texas, the new range-topping version of the company’s full-size SUV.

Based on the Armada’s Platinum grade, the new Platinum Reserve brings more style with a Dark Chrome exterior detailing that includes the front grille, door handles and mirrors, as well as a matching set of 20-inch alloys.

The interior has also received a custom treatment with two-tone leather seats featuring unique stitching, Black Quartz and premium wood tone interior trim and an embossed “Platinum Reserve” emblem on the console lid.

The single powertrain option remains unchanged, with a 390hp 5.6-liter V8 paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission providing its services to the 2018 Armada lineup. The wide range of active safety and assistance systems includes Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Back-up Intervention and Intelligent Around View Monitor while the 2018 Armada is also the first Nissan to come equipped with the camera-operated Intelligent Rear View Mirror.

The 2018 Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve will reach dealerships nationwide in late October, with prices kicking off at $61,690 for the 2WD version and $64,590 for the 4WD version.

    Super nice truck….Something to consider

  • Nordschleife

    Embossing on the seats and the center armrest. That’s a bit much.

  • Vanquish

    This and the Infiniti QX version have the exact same interior, and the exterior is only very very slightly different every other automaker the luxury version of their full size suv at least has a different interior other than the badge (I dont see the prestige in Infiniti anyway) why would you buy the Infiniti over this its silly

    • uaemortal

      That’s why infiniti is introducing an updated version next year to make it stand out against the Armada.

    • BlackPegasus

      Agreed… Nissan should’ve kept this Armada out of the US. It’s a slap in the face to those who paid a premium for the Infiniti QX.

  • Blade t

    If you have a big family and a few dollars this might be a good choice….
