The 2022 Nissan Armada is an excellent full-size SUV option for anyone needing tons of space. On top of space, it also offers a significant amount of technology, power, and more. Though the initial offering is quite affordable, it can get pretty expensive. How much is a fully loaded Nissan Armada, with everything included?
Fully loaded 2022 Nissan Armada – what’s the highest trim level?
The 2022 Nissan Armada, like those before it, offers four trim levels titled S, SV, SL, and Platinum. The highest Platinum option starts at $69,795 after applying the $1,495 shipping and handling fees. That’s before adding any other optional features, which can quickly add up. If you choose not to add to the Platinum, there is plenty included with the full-size SUV.
Firstly, four-wheel drive is standard on the Armada Platinum, as is its 5.6-liter V8 engine. The engine can make up to 400-horsepower and is the same one in its luxury corporate cousin, the Infiniti QX80. Additionally, 22-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, quilted leather-appointed seats, climate-controlled front seats, tri-zone entertainment system, and intelligent backup intervention are included.
What can be added to a Nissan Armada Platinum?
Starting with paint color, Aspen White Tricoat costs an additional $350; no other color costs extra. The three available interior color options don’t cost a dime extra. However, all-season floor mats ($155), illuminated kickplates ($390), and an all-season cargo area protector ($120) do cost a little more. Next, maximizing towing capacity means adding the Weight-distributing Hitch Ball Mount, Class IV, for $370.
Altogether these optional accessories will run buyers an extra $1,385. The only package not included in the Platinum Armada, the Captain’s Chairs Package, costs $650. The package features second-row fold-down captain’s chairs with easy tip-up entry to the third row. Additionally, the second row gains a passed center console with cup holders.
How much is a fully loaded Nissan Armada Platinum?
After adding everything to the 2022 Nissan Armada build, it ends up with a price of $71,875. That’s up only about $4,000 from the original starting price of the Armada Platinum trim without the extras. The price includes the $1,495 shipping and handling fees and will leave you with a hefty monthly payment.
The fully loaded Nissan Armada is $1,294 per month for 60 months for those looking to finance. Anyone looking to lease will have to pay $1,025 per month for 36 months, with $1,025 due at signing. The lease payment is only good for a 10,000 mile per year deal, so expect to pay more if you need to drive a lot.
What other accessories are available?
There are tons of accessories available for the Nissan Armada, each of which continues to boost its price. We didn’t include some notable ones in this build: roof rail crossbars, exterior ground lighting, and interior accent lighting—each of these costs $380, $395, and $395, respectively. There are plenty of other accessories to be added, and we could easily make the Armada’s price reach over $80,000.
Once it gets that expensive, you’d be better off switching to the luxury version. The Infiniti QX80 is virtually the same vehicle, sharing a platform, engine, features, and styling. If you’ve caused your Armada to eclipse the $70,000 mark, you could get a QX80 for about the same price. It starts at $70,600 and is a tad more luxurious than its Nissan counterpart.
The 2022 Nissan Armada full-size SUV is one of the most powerful available on the market. It starts at an affordable price but quickly gets into expensive territory. As Nissan‘s build & price tool reveals, the Platinum trim level is the highest and reaches $70,000 very quickly. Although, the SL and Platinum trims come with a lot of standard equipment. That makes them a great affordable option before adding all the extras.
