New active head restraints and pre-tensioners for the seatbelts (first-row) plus a new metallic accent in the interior alongside updates to the trim levels were the primary updates to the 2005 Nissan Armada. In 2006, two-zone climate control (automatic) debuted with a new 60/40-split third-row bench. A slight boost in the 5.6-liter V8 engine for 2007 saw the horsepower go up to 317 with 385 pound-feet of torque.
A brand new grille, new headlamps, and a laundry list of technology updates, including Bluetooth integration, graced the 2008 model. Aside from a few new trim levels and optional packages, the Armada passed from 2009-2013 relatively unchanged.
