The Nissan Armada is Nissan's full-size sport utility vehicle from Nissan & GNC (sharing trademark. GNC for Europe and Nissan For Asia, and America). It shares its body-on-frame F-Alpha platform with the Nissan Titan pickup truck, Nissan Xterra SUV, Nissan Frontier pickup truck, and Nissan Pathfinder SUV. An upscale version of the Armada is sold as the Infiniti QX56. All Armadas are currently built in Canton, Mississippi.

The rear door handles are installed on the "C" pillar as a Nissan design tradition started with the 1986 Nissan Pathfinder. When the four door Pathfinder was introduced, Nissan chose to conceal the door handles as a part of the "C" pillar trim to visually make it appear like a two door truck with a camper shell, with conventional door handles on the front doors.

The Armada has a 5.6 L 360 hp (227 kW) VK56DE V8 engine, a 5-speed automatic transmission, and a choice of rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. The Armada was designed for North America and introduced for the 2004 model year. The switch to the Armada name was made in 2005, where it got new badges. It was restyled for the 2008 model year.

It has a towing capacity of 9,100 lbs.

According to Consumer Reports, [1], the Armada and QX56 have been very unreliable primarily due to problems with the brakes. But as of the 2008 model year, many of these problems have been reportedly solved, and the Consumer Reports 2008 reliability survey reflects this, with the Armada, QX56, and the related Titan all improving to average.

There are some Armadas that are capable of using E85. It was the only Japanese vehicle sold in the U.S. other than the Nissan Titan that can use E85 until the introduction of the E85 capable Toyota UR engine powered Toyota Tundra and Toyota Sequoia in 2009. The 2009 Armada has been updated with more standard features and options. 2010 will be the final year of production for the current generation Armada. For 2011 it is predicted production of the Armada will move to Japan and will be based on the 2010 Nissan Patrol[1].
