About Nissan Armada

The 2017 Nissan Armada is the brand's flagship SUV, a 3-row brute that boasts plenty of room and capability for active families. Revamped for 2017, the Armada is now based on the Patrol, an iconic SUV that for decades has served as a military transport and adventure vehicle in global markets. With a powerful V8 engine and a slew of amenities, the Nissan Armada offers a lot of vehicle for its roughly $45,000 starting price. Highlights include impressive towing capacity and an optional safety system that can warn the driver if a vehicle two cars ahead suddenly slows. Despite its merits, the Armada faces tough competition in the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia.

"I traded in a 2015 Pathfinder Platinum which I thought was a very nice car until I drove the Armada. The Armada is a very smooth and powerful SUV. It has everything I need in a vehicle. I'm even happy with my mileage. on highway trips I can average 19-20 MPG. I have had over 60 vehicles from Pinto's to Porsche's and this Armada has to be one of my best purchases."

"Picked up our new Armada about 3 weeks ago. We came from a 2015 Ford Explorer that I hated but the wife had to have it. We test drove just about all of the full size SUV's out there. Tahoe, Yukon, Expedition, 4Runner...etc. Before we even started looking, the wife had her heart dead set on getting a Tahoe. I went and drove the Armada one day while she was at work and instantly knew this was the vehicle. I had gone days before to test drive a Tahoe and the Armada in my opinion beats the Tahoe in just about every area. Told my wife about the vehicle that night and she agreed to test drive. When she first saw it she loved the look. She drove it and loved the feel, power and comfort. But before she made up her mind, she wanted to test drive a Tahoe. Swung into the nearest dealership, while still on our private test drive in the Armada, and she went on a quick cruise in a 2016 Tahoe with a salesman while I stuck back at the dealership. They get back and the salesman is talking it up, wanting to talk numbers and my wife gives me the "let's get out of here" look. Get in the Armada and all she can say is how much more she likes it over the Tahoe. As I said in the beginning, she was dead set on the Tahoe and I didn't think there was any changing that. I liked the Tahoe but everyone has one and I just didn't like what you get for the price. Long story short, we headed right back to Nissan and stuck a deal we couldn't pass up! I will mention that I gave the design a 9 because I have to admit the dash layout and technology features are lagging behind that of Ford & Chevy but it's still a good, proven system that mirrors what they use in the Infiniti version of this vehicle. I can't say enough good things about this vehicle and how much we love it compared to the other ones in it's class. Go test drive one if you're in the market for something this size and you will see what I am talking about."
