2018 Nissan Armada SV vs. SL

Since its debut the Nissan Armada has remained a strong option for car shoppers in search of a SUV with strong towing capability, a wide array of features and seating for up to 8. When it comes to features, the Nissan Armada offers a generous array, always erring on the side of high-end. The 2018 model continues this trend with new standard technologies, including NissanConnect, an 8-inch touchscreen display, HD radio, hands-free text messaging and an additional USB charging port. There is also a new Intelligent Around View Monitor for the Platinum and Platinum Reserve trims.

In total, the 2018 Nissan Armada is available four trims, including the SV, SL, Platinum and Platinum Reserve. Even the entry-level SV is packed with premium features. Should you choose the base SV or move up to the SL model? Here's a closer look at how the two compare.

Introducing the fully redesigned 2018 Nissan Armada SUV

At its heart, the 2018 Nissan Armada is standard with a powerful Endurance 390-hp, 5.6-liter V8 engine. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available as an added option. When the SV and SL models are side-by-side the most significant differences between the two are the features available. The 2018 Nissan Armada SV is standard with satellite radio, two USB media inputs, two USB charge ports, a rearview camera, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone climate control, roof rails, automatic LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors and heated front seats.

For even more high-tech features, there is the SL model. It carries over all the features from the SV and adds foglights, an auto-dimming mirror, remote engine start and leather door trim. The enhanced 360-degree parking camera with moving-object detection and warning adds another level of functionality to the new 2018 Armada SV trim.
