Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Nissan Armada ranks 6 out of 6 Large SUVs. Nissan reintroduced the Armada for the 2017 model year, and it has a quiet ride, above-average cabin quality, a powerful engine, and spacious second-row seats. However, the front seats are less roomy than in rival SUVs, and the infotainment system feels a step behind many rival systems.

Pros
Powerful engine
Quiet ride
Quality cabin materials
Sprawling second-row seats

Cons
Antiquated infotainment system
Subpar cargo space
Disappointing first- and third-row seats

After rotting on the vine for years, the 2017 Nissan Armada's redesign brings it upscale and makes it competitive with its recently updated truck-based full-size SUV rivals.
With the 2017 Armada, Nissan has adopted what is basically a U.S. version of the global Nissan Patrol SUV. The new Armada is a soul mate of the Infiniti QX80 once again, with a body-on-frame design and its eight-passenger seating. To distinguish it from the QX80, it gets new styling and new engineering, plus additional safety features.

Pros
More modern looks
Quiet cabin
Ready power
Good choice for towing
Room for people and their stuff

Cons
Thirsty
Big and heavy
Slow steering
Tight third-row seat

The redesigned 2017 Nissan Armada is a substantial improvement over the vehicle it replaces. If you're looking for a big three-row SUV that can tow and venture off the beaten path but also comfortably handle the daily urban grind, the new Armada will be a great choice.
After a one-year hiatus, the Nissan Armada is back for 2017. Fully redesigned, it boasts a higher quality interior, a more powerful V8 engine and a new, more chiseled look for its exterior styling.

Pros
Higher-quality cabin that betters most competitors
Smooth and quiet V8 engine
More comfortable and less trucklike to drive than some rival SUVs
Plenty of ground clearance for off-road adventures.

Cons
Fuel economy is poor, even for this class of vehicle
Third-row seat is less spacious and comfortable than those of some SUV and crossover rivals
Heavy steering in parking lots.
