Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Nissan Armada ranked #6 in Large SUVs. Currently the Nissan Armada has a score of 7.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 19 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Strong V8 engine
Good towing capacity
Expansive second-row seats
Well-built cabin

Cons
Outdated infotainment system
Below-average cargo space
Below-average fuel economy
Smaller front seats than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

Instead of imitating the boxy and costly stalwarts of this popular segment, the Armada breaks the mold—sort of. After all, it’s still a big-bodied, fuel-thirsty family dreadnought. But the three-row Armada has a serene, expensive interior and an upscale exterior that enable it to undermine high-rent rivals when it comes to price.

Pros
Rich,
comfortable,
and quiet interior;
useful power and towing capacity;
looks expensive.

Cons
Old-school fuel economy,
no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto,
imprecise steering.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Nissan redesigned the Armada last year, so the 2018 model carries over with only minor changes. NissanConnect telematics services, an 8-inch touchscreen display, HD radio, hands-free text messaging, and additional USB charging ports now come standard on all trims. A rearview mirror that can stream a constant video feed from the rear camera is also new this year

PROS
High-quality interior is appealing
Smooth V8 engine delivers ample power for towing and hauling
Rides more comfortably, less trucklike, than some rival SUVs

CONS
Third-row seating isn't as spacious as some rivals
Infotainment system is dated
No getting around the V8's poor fuel economy

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class may not look different than its predecessor, but its new suspension and interior bring it into the 21st century. Finally.

Pros
Classic look retained
Almost certainly better on road
Updated, roomier interior
Still brims with character

Cons
Is it too derivative?
Independent front suspension may dillute off-road ability
Only one off-road mode
Bound to be wildly expensive
