2007 Nissan Armada LE FFV 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 5A)
I've owned 2 Jeeps, 4 Blazers, a Bravo,5 loaded Tahoes. This SUV is miles above these in performance (Tahoes close). Tahoe interior is more comfortable & pleasing. Rides like a sports car if one knows how to drive it. Staggering power readily avail. when needed. Handling amazing for such a large unit. Wonderfully controllable in all driving situations. Not ideal for average soccer moms but terrific for serious drivers w/ fun, work, and quality travel in mind. I own a Jag and a Mercedes sports car. When behind wheel of Armada I don't feel loss of control or power as one might expect after driving true sports cars. The difference in cornering is obvious but not uncomfortably or dangerously so.
Powerful engine. Enjoyable manual shifting when desired with the consul- mount lever. Bose sound system. Ground clearance. Driveability. Sound braking. Safety features. Heated seats. Power rear view mirrors. Power rear door. Large wheels & wide wheel base. Easy interior conversion for cargo storage.
Better quality interior materials, exterior finish materials incl. paint + chrome, pressure detecting tire valve stems, ABS wheel speed sensors seize in hub assembly frequently. Costly damage to wheel bearing and hub assembly. This is a real problem that costs over $500 to repair EACH TIME.
