The New Armada is a Beast!! In a Good Way!!!
Tows my 7,000 boat and gear w no problems. Solid and smooth. The self leveling rear end works great. The safety nannies are awesome. The AC is awesome in the 110 plus degree heat in Phoenix. I shopped the GMC Yukon Denali against this new Armada. It's a much better value than the Denali. After test driving 3 new Denalis and finding vibration in all 3 I switched to looking at this new Armada.. The main reasons I purchased the Armada are 1) better value for the money 2) No vibrations, smooth, powerful and really tight - no rattles/noises 3) Nice looking and different than the typical GM or Ford form factors 4) 9+ inches ground clearance 5) All the safety technology 6) like the rear heater/AC venting in the back better.... Well I traded this in for a truck. But after a year of ownership I would buy another one. It’s far and above any GM or Ford product despite the media’s reviews of it. Go drive one yourself.
Very Pleased
Great looking SUV with a great ride. Acceleration is very fast...and it runs very quite on the road. Of the large SUV's, to me it is the sharpest looking. Also, for all the amenities you get in the Platinum Armada, value wise it is pretty good. I have had it two months...and overall very satisfied. I got the bucket seats in the middle row...and it is fantastic for the kids. Update, all good. Runs great and have not had one single problem. Very comfortable, powerful ride. The platinum model is the way to go....looks great.
It makes car owner experience great again
I bought this SUV in Oct 2016, and it's too new to give an accurate review. So far, it's a great full size SUV. My wife loves it (technically, it's hers). I took it back to the dealer a few days later for the wheel alignment because the steering wheel was off center. The dealer didn't have the wheel specs on 2017 model, but the Technician was able to use the 2016 Infinity QX80 specs to align the wheels. It has plenty of power and drinks lots of gas, but it has very nice safety features for the platinum package. I live in Pensacola, FL, but I bought the SUV in Mobile AL. We wanted to buy it locally, but the Nissan Dealership in Pensacola swapped the 2nd row captain seats to the bench seat after we agreed on the price. Good thing, I asked to see the SUV before I was going to sign the final paperwork. I went Mobile and got everything I wanted in the vehicle w/ the captain seats for $1300 less.

Though crossovers rule the SUV segment, low gas prices mean there is still a thriving market for old-school full-size SUVs like the 2017 Nissan Armada. Freshly redesigned this year, the Armada is a comfortable and surprisingly luxurious alternative for those who need an SUV that can tow and haul, or one that can claw its way over rough terrain.

The old version of the Armada was built off the bones of Nissan's full-size Titan pickup, but the 2017 model is a new breed. Like its posh sibling, the Infiniti QX80, the Armada is based on the Nissan Patrol, an accomplished off-road SUV that has been doing battle in markets outside of America for some years now. Built with body-on-frame construction for maximum ruggedness, the Armada features seating for up to eight and a powerful V8 engine.

In terms of its engine, the Armada speaks softly but carries a big stick — a brawny 5.6-liter V8 that produces 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque, which can be paired with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with a low-range transfer case. The Armada can tow up to 8,500 pounds, more than most small pickup trucks, but the engine is thirsty: EPA estimates are 16 mpg combined (14 city/19 highway) with rear-wheel drive and 15 mpg combined (13 city/18 highway) with four-wheel drive.

Surprisingly, the interior differences between the Nissan Armada and the Infiniti QX80 are just about negligible — and make no mistake, the ambiance and materials quality are all built to Infiniti standards. We did miss the Infiniti's seats, which offer a greater degree of adjustability. First- and second-row comfort are fine, but the third-row seat and the cargo bay don't offer as much room as some of the Armada's full-size competitors.

The driving experience is just as refined as the interior decor. We expect some element of engine roar and wind noise in a road-going brick like this, but the Armada is respectably quiet, and while it definitely feels more cumbersome and truck-like than a large crossover, the Armada's ride is free of the bouncing and shimmying over bumps we've come to expect from full-size body-on-frame vehicles.

The Armada is available as a seven- or eight-seat SUV in SV, SL and Platinum trim levels. The SV comes very nicely equipped, with the SL adding features we expect from entry-level luxury vehicles and the Platinum narrowing the gap between the Armada and its Infiniti counterpart even further. What's the best way to equip this big SUV? Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2017 Nissan Armada for you.
