We have only owned the 2008 Armada for a couple of days, but we love it. Yes the fuel economy isn't the best, but I think it is worth it to put my children into larger safer vehicle. You could buy a smaller SUV that will get about 20 MPG as compared to the Armada (that averages 13 MPG). I drive about 15,000 miles a year and only pay about an average of 100 per month more then I would with a smaller SUV. I have a lot of room and it is very comfortable. A real head turner. Beautiful design.
Style, comfort, power, sit up high, smooth ride.
A/C glove box for those long trips. A power outlet in the console.
