We bought this suv because we have a travel trailer that we use on a frequent basis. The car is big, but the engine and design of the car makes it feel much smaller to drive. The one item to mention that other owners didn't is that if you plan on towing with this vehicle make sure you get the factory tow package with the vehicle. The tow package has a different lower rear end gears and stabalizing shocks that make it capable of pulling 9,100 lbs. for a 2 wheel drive Armada and 9,000 lbs for a 4 wheel drive Armada. A standard Armada without the factory hitch and other features only pulls 6,500 lbs. There are very few suv's that can pull this much weight. Powerful, capable SUV with room
Very powerful engine (0 to 60 in 7 seconds!), rear climate controls & radio controls; comes loaded as the base: model-18 inch tires, rear backing sensors, auto dimming rear view mirror, 8 way power adjusting driver seat, power adj. foot pedals, 6 fold down compartments in the ceiling, nice ride
This is like any other large SUV with semi poor gas milage (13 city , 18 highway) However my NIssan Xterra (a mid size SUV) only got 16 city, 19 highway). This SUV drives well. I really can't find much to improve on this SUV. Sure it is big, but it can do big things: Carry 8 people, haul 9,100lb
