Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive
“”

Approaching 6,000 pounds, especially with four-wheel drive, the Armada is indisputably a heavyweight. Though it copes well enough through curvy stretches, and the body leans during quick corners, an Armada never feels unsafe.

Next to carlike crossover models, handling can only be called cumbersome and sluggish. Although the leather-wrapped steering wheel feels good, Armadas, not surprisingly, are short on road feel.

Ride comfort exceeds expectations for a massive body-on-frame vehicle, thanks to its fully independent coil-spring suspension. The SV base model with 18-inch tires yields the most satisfying luxury-level ride. Upper trim levels with 20-inch tires ride a tad firmer, but the difference isn’t bothersome.

Nissan’s big, strong V8 yields energetic acceleration, augmented by confident towing prowess, but an Armada inevitably guzzles gasoline. Considering its weight, acceleration to 60 mph in less than seven seconds is mighty quick. Smooth-running at idle speed, the V8 emits a subdued growl as it gets rolling.

Four-wheel drive is optional for all versions, permitting off-road treks. Naturally, the excessive dimensions of Nissan’s flagship make it usable mainly on wide trails.

It takes some fuel to power an Armada. Rear-wheel-drive models are EPA-rated at only 14/19 mpg City/Highway, or 16 mpg Combined. Four-wheel drive sinks those estimates to 13/18/15 mpg. At least, it runs on Regular-grade gasoline.

Walk Around

Few people would call the big, bulbous Armada pretty. More often, they’d be likely to take notice of its inevitably voluptuous, but awkward, exterior shape. Essentially, Nissan’s Armada looks much like the related Infiniti QX80, but decorated by a little less chrome and equipped with contrasting-color fender flares.

Rather than simply dive into the traditional two-box SUV profile, Nissan went for curves. To some eyes, they may have gone too far in that direction. At the rear, clear taillights and a protruding back bumper help differentiate the Armada from the related Infiniti QX80.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Just about as curvaceous within the cabin as outside, the Armada promises abundant space in both the first and second rows. Front seats are abundantly padded for long-distance comfort, offering a broad range of adjustments.

The third row isn’t quite so welcoming, thus best for youngsters. Though fairly spacious once there, reaching the third row is somewhat challenging.

Eight-passenger seating is standard, with a three-position bench in the second row. Individual captain’s chairs are available for Platinum versions, reducing passenger capacity to seven.

Even in the base SV edition, with its cloth upholstery, the interior is sufficiently upscale and attractive. Wood trim is simulated, but convincing, complementing soft-touch surfaces.

New Platinum Reserve trim substitutes two-tone leather that’s almost tacky in nature, though the darker chrome on the body is an improvement. All told, the new version comes across as more gaudy than suave.

Although the curved dashboard seems to steal some passenger space, front occupants can expect ample stretch-out room. Numerous controls could be confusing at first.

Cargo space excels, with 16.5 cubic feet behind the third row. Folding that row expands volume close to 50 cubic feet. With two rows folded, an Armada can hold 95.4 cubic feet of luggage and cargo.

Summary

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Providing fairly good value despite hefty prices, the Armada comes across as a luxury SUV. Not only will it hold a large family in comfort, it can tow a camper or boat with ease. Demerits include an unbridled appetite for fuel and a largely unrewarding driving experience.

With future fuel prices uncertain, car show attendees will be thrilled to see that the wallet-friendly 2018 Altima will be one of the featured vehicles out on the floor.

The 2018 Maxima is another head-turner that will be featured on the floor, and this year's model happened to receive a particularly glowing review from Car and Driver. Not only did the review praise the Maxima's exceptional value for the money, but the writers also refer to its engine as "gutsy" while mentioning the many marvelous features that are available on the base model.

Another amazing automobile featured at the 2018 Auto Show Milwaukee is the magnificent Murano. Edmunds has highlighted the crossover's powerful motor and status as an upscale vehicle in its class.

The head-turning 2018 Pathfinder is another gorgeous vehicle that will receive its moment in the spotlight at the Auto Show Milwaukee Wisconsin. Car and Driver recently called out its good looks and handy third row.
