Nissan Armada Overview

This large, truck-based SUV has an independent rear suspension and seating for eight. The Armada is powered by a smooth-revving and punchy, but noisy, 5.6-liter V8 engine coupled with a slick five-speed automatic. Fuel economy, at 13 mpg overall, is abysmal. The Armada is quick but not that refined. Handling is relatively responsive, but the ride is quite stiff. Interior quality is so-so and the styling is dated. It is difficult for children to reach the high-mounted exterior rear-door handles. Rear cargo space and towing capacity are generous. Reliability has been much below average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
