Editor's Overview

Nissan's 2013 Armada SUV is a big machine intended for big jobs. With seating for up to eight people, a smorgasbord of electronic media and navigation equipment, and a tow rating of 9,000 pounds, the Armada is indispensable for large families on the go. That is if they can afford the monthly fuel bill.

Great family vehicle with large towing capacity.

This is a great family car that can fit multiple car seats and extra guests, in addition to still having trunk space. We used this car to tow a travel trailer and it is wonderful. It has the towing capacity of a large truck but the inside of a luxury SUV.

- Alison M

It is spacious inside with plenty of room for the entire family. It is also very safe and durable!!

I have no complaints. I love the size and room available for my kids. The only thing, specifically, I wish I could change of given the opportunity is that I would have a bench seat in the back versus bucket seats for the kids.

- Paige F

Very affordable and dependable.

Great size vehicle. Very stable and comfortable. Love the captain's chairs and fold down 3rd row. Heated seats and steering wheel are wonderful in the winter. I also love the space even when the 3rd row seat is up.
