Discover the differences between the new Armada SL and Platinum trim levels.

Armada SL vs. Platinum

The first important distinction to make is that the SL is a lower trim level than the Platinum, meaning you can expect a low starting price but fewer available features. This is a balance that each driver has to make, between the features that they want the price that makes sense for their budgets.


There are few differences between the performance of each trim level. Both trim levels come with a standard 5.6-liter V8 engine that produces 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque for powerful driving capabilities. An advanced 4WD system is available for extra traction, but you can expect impressive features like a seven-speed automatic transmission, auto-leveling rear suspension, and iridium-tipped spark plugs.

The only difference in performance is that the Platinum comes with vehicle-speed-sensitive power steering, and the SL does not.


One of the most significant differences between these trim levels is that the Platinum comes with a wide array of standard driver assistance features that are not standard for the SL. Some of these features include:

  • Intelligent Distance Control
  • Intelligent Lane Intervention
  • Intelligent Back-up Intervention
  • Blind-spot Warning
  • Intelligent Rear View Mirror


You can expect additional features for the Platinum, ranging from exterior badging to interior comfort. Some of these features include:

  • Heated and Cooled Leather Front Seats
  • Heated Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel
  • Tri-Zone Entertainment System
  • Power-Sliding Glass Moonroof
  • Power-heated and Folding Side Mirrors
