This less expensive version of the Infiniti QX80 is freshened for 2021.
It still uses a robust 5.6-liter V8, but it now makes 400-hp.
In our tests we got a paltry 14-mpg overall.
Though the soft suspension absorbs bumps well, the body jostles frequently.
Handling is clumsy, with slow steering and pronounced body roll, but it's ultimately secure.
Inside, the spacious cabin has a premium feel, particularly in the Platinum trim.
The infotainment system has been updated, but some other controls feel old, and it's a far reach to some buttons and knobs.
Seven- and eight-passenger seating configurations are available, and the third row can power fold and unfold.
Available in rear-wheel or full-time four-wheel drive, the Armada can tow a generous 8,500-pound load.
FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, and rear cross traffic warning are standard.
