Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Armada gets a significant makeover for 2021, starting with a squarer front end featuring prominent headlights. The design revisions reach out back, too, with a new bumper and taillights that are connected by a continuous trim piece. There's also a newly available Midnight Edition with blacked-out trim. Inside, Nissan redesigned the center stack and added a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay.

PROS
Serenely quiet and comfy,
smooth,
potent powertrain,
pillowy ride.

CONS
Dreadful fuel economy,
some dated interior elements,
wanders at highway speeds.

Good safety features
Value at the base level

CONS
Gas guzzler
Third row for kids only

By:

Mercedes's souped-up G-class model receives a wireless smartphone charging pad as standard equipment for 2021 and sees an expansion to the G manufaktur customization service that can provide an even deeper level of personalization. Elsewhere, a new AMG Night package adds black exterior trim pieces, and a new spare tire cover in Night Black Magno is now available.

PROS
Physics-defying acceleration,
impressive off-road abilities,
lovable boxy styling.

CONS
Noisy when cruising,
cornering at speed is anxiety inducing,
silly expensive.

By: 
caranddriver.com

PROS
Imposing stance
Luxurious interior
Far from uninteresting
Serious off-road ability
G63’s acceleration

CONS
Massive pricetag
Massive guzzler
