Nissan Hikes Armada Price Tag for 2024


nissan hikes armada price tag for 2024

The jumbo Nissan Armada has a higher entry-level price point for 2024 compared to last year – but it would be tough to solely blame inflation for this cost hike. Rather, customers should know the brand simply decided to bin a (relatively) low volume base trim.

For the next model year, the Armada now sets an opening ante of $55,450 plus destination fees for a two-wheel drive SV trim. That’s about five grand higher than what was proffered for the S trim, a model which likely existed only in the imaginations of PR teams and marketers, anyways. You can be sure it was a rare day when one of those birds lit on a dealer lot. Bombastic headlines about price hikes aside, this trim walk makes a lot more sense for a machine like the Armada.

All three trims – SV, SL, and Platinum – are available in two- or all-wheel drive, placating buyers in the southwest who need four driven wheels like an airport runway needs a speed bump. Monroney numbers are $59,270 and $67,520 for the SL and Platinum, respectively. Adding 4×4 tacks three grand onto the bill no matter what trim is selected. Other minor options continue, like second-row captain’s chairs and a murdered-out Midnight Edition package.

Despite its slightly awkward proportions, the body-on-frame Armada is good for towing up to 8,500 pounds when properly equipped though it can be argued the thing doesn’t make as good use of its cabin space compared to some rivals. A burly V8 remains under the hood, showing up for duty as a 5.6L octopot making 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. Given stated plans indicated for other models using this engine, there’s nothing wrong with wondering out loud what will happen to this mill in a few short years – or what will power the next Armada or whatever takes its place.

The 2024 Nissan Armada should be showing up in dealers handy around the time Santa Claus gets off his duff and starts bringing us presents.
