It looks like the Nissan Armada isn’t giving drivers a break as prices continue to climb. It does offer a few extra standard features to try and make up for increasing costs, but your wallet could still get hurt. Adding four-wheel drive to any 2023 Nissan Armada model is pretty steep.

How much does adding 4×4 to the 2023 Nissan Armada cost?

It costs $3,000 to add 4×4 to the 2023 Nissan Armada across the entire lineup. Typically it costs around $1,500 to equip a truck or SUV with four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Also, some rivals include standard 4×4 on some trim levels.

Not a single 2023 Armada model has standard 4×4. But on a positive note, the 4×4 package comes with a two-speed transfer case that gives it a significant advantage for off-roading.

A transfer case can send power from the transmission to the front and rear axle and can provide access to low-range gears. It can limit the speed while still providing the optimal torque for enhanced traction and control in slippery conditions.

Also, it’s important to note that the Nissan Armada has a traditional body-on-frame build. Rival SUVs have been switching to unibody designs, which provide more comfort at the cost of capability.

Body-on-frame builds are often more rugged and durable. Plus, this setup allows for greater suspension travel.

Is the 2023 Armada worth buying?

Yes, the 2023 Nissan Armada is worth buying despite how expensive it is to add 4×4. It’s a robust and comfortable three-row SUV that includes plenty of value. It has a powerful engine and a long list of standard features.

The 2023 Armada price starts at $52,095, including the $1,695 destination fee. It has a 5.6-liter V8 engine with 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. According to Edmunds, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 6.7 seconds.

When properly equipped, the Armada can tow up to 8,500 lbs and carry a payload of up to 1,723 lbs. Each model has a standard tow hitch receiver with prewiring for a trailer brake controller.

Higher trims provide access to trailer sway dampening that adjusts the vehicle brake to control trailer movement and a 360-degree surround-view camera system.

The Armada features a pretty smooth ride over most impacts, but the 22-inch wheels shutter over larger bumps. The interior is peacefully quiet, and the large seats are well-padded in each row.

What comes standard with the Nissan Armada?

The 2023 Nissan Armada S trim kicks things off with 18-inch wheels, a full-size spare tire, LED headlights, power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, built-in navigation, and NissanConnect services with Wi-fi.

Standard safety features include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert, blind-spot intervention, lane departure mitigation, rear automatic braking, and parking sensors.

These advanced tech and safety feature options are typically reserved for higher trim levels, so the Armada is value-packed.

While adding 4×4 may be expensive, it comes with a two-speed transfer case at least. Plus, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this robust, luxury family SUV.
