The hulking second-generation Nissan Armada is very much a clone of the highbrow Infiniti QX80, a full-sized luxury three-row SUV that has been on sale since 2010. Even though it’s about $20,000 less expensive, the Nissan cedes practically nothing to its more luxurious twin. Strong points include a smooth, powerful powertrain, quiet cabin, and formidable 8,500-pound towing ability. Clumsy-yet-secure handling and a voracious appetite for fuel are among the Armada’s demerits.
The Armada is aimed squarely at the high-end, large SUV segment, where it battles domestic mainstays such as the Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition, as well as the Toyota Sequoia. All are truck-based SUVs that lack the car-like ride and handling of a modern SUV.
