The Nissan Armada is a significant vehicle for a variety of reasons, the most notable of which is that it comes from a Japanese brand but is completely tuned for American tastes and sensibilities. Brand aside, there is absolutely nothing traditionally or typically Japanese about it. Armada is full size, and when we say full-size, we mean it! It has a powerful and sophisticated V8 engine bigger and mightier than the domestic competition! Armada is unapologetically made for North America and North America alone, with no compromises or shortcomings.
Armada was right for the market right out of the box for the 2004 model year when it won Large SUV honors in AutoPacific‘s Vehicle Satisfaction Awards. As a repeat winner, Armada’s 2004 and 2005 performances surely were not flukes.
