2011 Nissan Armada

2011 Nissan Armada Review

(3 Stars)  Capable and fun but not best in class

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Armada is Nissans full sized (and I mean FULL sized) SUV. By most Japanese SUV standards, this is a monster. Imparting many of the favorite aspects of big trucks, such as it's towing capacity of 9100 lbs. and true off the road performance, it is still able to hang with the best of them on the streets. It can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 6.8 seconds and stop from 60 miles per hour in 128 feet. Either of these an amazing feat for a vehicle this large. It handles well too, posting a .76g on the skid pad. All this combined with the castle on wheels size of its interior, which can seat 8 people. The price from all this has to come somewhere and as one might well expect, the highest price is to be paid in fuel consumption. You just can't move a leviathan like this around with authority and get even decent gas mileage doing so.

As it is, the Armada averages just 12mpg city, and 18 highway, according to the EPA ratings. But many buyers will consider that a worthwhile tradeoff for all the versatility the Armada offers.
