Editor's Overview

Revamped for 2017, the Nissan Armada is the brand's flagship SUV, a 3-row brute that boasts plenty of room and capability for active families. With a powerful V8 and a slew of comfort and safety features, the Nissan Armada offers a lot of vehicle for its roughly $45,000 starting price but still faces stiff competition in the Chevrolet Tahoe.

The internet reviews that say the armada is not a good vehicle are misleading.

My Nissan armada handles great for a big SUV. The armada is stylish and the interior is comfortable and well appointed. The third row passenger seats are a big plus when hauling the nieces and nephews around to restaurants, swim meats and the mall. Despite what you read online, my armada gets good gas mileage. Nissan makes a high quality vehicle.

I love the body of the car very sporty and luxurious look.

I love everything about the car, it has so much. I love the way it drives smooth and very benefits. The right car for a family of 3. My daughter is very comfortable in the back seat. The glove department is big enough for all my stuff. The trunk looks small but is pretty big and fits mostly everything I need when I go to the store.

- Maria V

The armada is a great ride.

The car is very comfortable. It drives nicely and is a smooth ride. It is high off the ground so you can see traffic but not so high that it is hard to get into. There is a lot of cargo space, especially with the third seat folded down. The only bad thing I can say is the third seat does not fold down completely flat.
