Rugged, gorgeous, and plush, the Nissan Armada is easily one of the largest SUVs out there and it lives up to the hype in terms of performance.
It’s an eight-seater car that’s available in four trim levels: SL, SV, Platinum, and Midnight Edition. Platinum 2WD is the most popular style, offering Rear Wheel Drive and a 5.6-liter DOHC 32-valve V8 engine.
A combination of comfort, extra roomy interior space, and truck-based chassis makes this full-size SUV a true utility vehicle. The 5.6-liter V8 engine produces 400 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 394 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm, making it a formidable powerhouse.
The Armada (Platinum 2WD) delivers roughly 19 mpg on the highway and 14 mpg in the city, which isn’t too shabby for such a behemoth of an SUV.
With these stellar ratings, the Nissan Armada has a maximum towing capacity of 8,500 lbs and boasts fantastic off-road capability.
Nissan packed its signature driver safety technology and design styles into the Armada. Aside from its excellent towing capacity, the V8 engine has snappy acceleration yet the ride is smooth, quiet, and comfortable over a range of terrains.
