Nissan Armada - What the Auto Press Says- usnews.rankingsandreviews.com
The 2010 Nissan Armada ranks 9 out of 10 Affordable Large SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 47 published reviews and test drives of the Nissan Armada, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
The Nissan Armada offers buyers plenty of power and rugged capability, but not enough to make it a standout in this competitive class.
Despite the fact that it's not the least expensive SUV in the class, the Nissan Armada is a good value for its size and capabilities. With seating for up to eight, and a 317 horsepower V8 engine, there's a lot for buyers who need a capable SUV to like. Plus, if you opt for the Armada's top-of-the-line Platinum trim, it becomes a near-luxury SUV for less than what you'd pay for its luxury nameplate cousin, the Infiniti QX56
However, while the Armada is an able performer, it loses points for predicted reliability score that isn't as strong as others in the class. What may be worse for the Armada in the minds of most buyers is its fuel economy: the Armada has some of the worst fuel economy in the class, making it a tough sell. Still, given the soft new car market, buyers who like the Armada may be able to save enough money at the dealership to keep the Armada gassed up for a while.
If you're looking for more comfort in an SUV, check out the class-leading Chevrolet Tahoe, which offers more refinement and is almost as rugged as the Armada. Plus, the Tahoe has marginally better fuel economy. The Ford Expedition is also worth a look. Its price is slightly less than the Armada's, and it has an adult-friendly third row seat -- a rarity in this class.
For 2010, new trims are available on the Armada. Armada buyers can chose between SE, Titanium and Platinum editions. The Titanium and Platinum trims feature upgraded wheels, body moldings and interior materials. The Platinum edition also features a 9.3 GB music hard drive, DVD entertainment system and a navigation system.

- "The Armada puts the right stuff in a lot of the right places for buyers desiring a full measure of the large SUV experience," -- Automobile Magazine
- "This big traditional SUV is built upon the bones of the Titan pickup and packs a powerful V-8 engine. Its three rows of seating are remarkably spacious, it drives smaller than it actually is, and it is well-suited to towing. The optional luxuries make the Infiniti QX56 a bit redundant." -- Car and Driver
- "Armada doesn't lead the large-SUV class in any area. It trails key rivals in 3rd-row comfort and ease of entry and exit." -- Consumer Guide
- "During my two-week test drive of the 2010 Nissan Armada, I liked almost everything about the full-size SUV. However, I'll never buy one - not until its gas mileage improves." -- Mother Proof
